Journal pages and old scans I had forgotten

I had the sofas and the gold there already. The stamp was from a thank you letter from our nephews-they always send one for presents and we love getting them. I scanned the stamp to enlarge it for the December page, then had the idea for finishing my next 'on the sofa' page. Once I had stuck on Mary and Jesus then the gold reminded me of angels.

Some fun things from December. The bear is a napkin from New Year-Andy went shopping with Alwyn and they had instructions to choose festive napkins(only part of a very long list!) The blue paper is from a Cafe Nero bag from breakfast at the Eurostar station-it contained a delicious almond croissant-no wonder I don't lose any weight! The bag is such a lovely deep blue.
Below are three scans I had forgotten about and liked when I saw them again. Mints

Lino print
Gel pen drawing.

Lovely work Sarah- isn't it fun to find art you've made and see it differently later on! The black and white lino is wonderful - reminds me of woodblock designs!

Your creativity is overwhelming. If you're anything like me, sleep must be disturbed quite often, is it?

I love your December pages. I too have wondered as does Frayedattheedge, how you fit all your art into a busy working life. You seem to stay so motivated.

Hi and thanks as always for your lovely comments! Just a word as to how I fit it all in. I work more or less a nine or ten hour day-and then I cannot do any more school work as my brain is addled. So then I do a little something creative more or less every night and at least some of the time at the weekend. I usually have a few things on the go at once so there is always something to work on.

I like the mints the best for some reason. I'm looking into buying a scanner as I have so many old photos and the girls' pictures that I'd like to have safely somewhere.

WOW. I do love that linotype. Isn't it great looking back? Nothing like it and certainly nothing or one like you, Sarah. I am *always* refreshed and inspired when I visit here.
