Keith the goat

This is Keith, don’t ask. He come from Sweden  last January, spent the summer in Norwich and then moved to Edinburgh in the Autumn. He finally arrived in Leicester in time for Christmas having had lots of adventures. We have our version of a  traditional Swedish Christmas Eve with baked ham, Jansson’s temptation (potatoes) and beetroot and new this year spiced tangerines.

We’re not going to burn Keith, he’s part of the family now.


Christmas Cards

Just a few of the Christmas cards I’ve made this year. I made them using ideas from the Craft Stamper magazine and background techniques learned on a WEA advanced card making course. I tried to use supplies I already had and it really stretched my creativity.
