Merry Christmas

When all is still, the year comes to an end, the tree stands tall and twinkles.

Thoughts float on years gone by.

Winter has that magical quality to it, the season of home warmth,
love and kindness.

Merry Christmas to you!

Advent Collection

A little Christmas collection, the first is a journal piece and the rest are my daily advent pictures.
Last Saturday I went with my dad to see "The Nutcracker" ballet, it was so beautiful and magical, a great night out, just dad and me, very special! 
Our tree is up and the lights are all on in the village, Lulu loves her evening walks with mama and dada to see the sparkles, December is full of magic!

Christmas Advent Collage

Over at Sparkles Days Studio Corrine has been making beautiful advent pictures and hanging them up, she inspired me to create some of my own, so here are my first 4 days pictures. I love the idea of creating a little advent picture each day.

It's such a magical time, we are all looking forward to choosing and decorating the Christmas tree this week-end!

Happy sparkles and magic to all,
Kat xx

and here is my advent collage with inverted colours

Our favourite tree in our house is already looking like Christmas.

A calendar page for dark November with some light shining through.
I've always loved the dark months, the sky is so beautiful and dusk is a magical time at this time of year.

This is quite a loud piece, I played with the background a little for the effects. 
I had fun and relaxed doing the little individual design pieces. This really is a burst of strong colour this week, we've had it very dark and rainy for a few days now, so some bright colour feels good.

Sending bright and warm healing energy to all in need!

A little childish fun this week with these owls and happy reindeer. 
Thanks so much for all your kind thoughts and words you sent me and my family last week.
Dad had his first chemo today, he's on the right track and will beat this!

Best of wishes to all,

We are all going into battle mode with him to fight this, so dear dad I know you will be reading this, let's fight hard and beat this!
