Anywho, I won't blabble on too much I'll just show you what I have been up to :) One Sunshine Wedding couple is for their Wedding stationary, another is for a framed gift and the third is to be used for a Wedding DVD cover. So many happy couples and a very happy doodled out Jo right now!

My first My Little Pony was Peachy who came with the awesome little Twinkles, I remember unwrapping her on my parents bed one birthday morning and being over the moon! My second was Milkyway, she was very special, not only for the shiny stars and exciting blue streak in her hair but she was a unicorn. Just Magic!

A while ago now I submitted 4 of my bird-tastic pretties for the Postcard show at The Surface Gallery and on the 5th December the exhibition opened. I have yet to shuffle myself on down there but I have seen some photos and borrowed them from the galleries site to share with you... see if you can spot two of my cheeky little bird postcards amongst the other fantastic & beautiful submissions.
Talking of the Surface Gallery I shared a stall with my good friend April at their Christmas Arts & Craft fair which went brilliantly! Despite freezing my tootsies and other bits off I have a very successful weekend and it was the confidence boost I needed to back up my newest jewellery! I am a very happy bunny indeed and have even been out to pur-chase some nice smart black jewellery boxes and organza bags to add more shinysupernewandexcitingness to my work.
As well as being busy with craft fairs and festive sales, I have been creating a few sunshine commissions too which I always love doing. The below piccies w are of my most recent and I'm very pleased with them. Just hope that the recipients are as happy on Christmas Morning!
And now for the pretties... Jo's shiny new pretties which were a kind of 'Hi-5 Me!' for all the work I've been doing Well that's how I justify it anyway... I'm sure you will all agree when you see the wonderful prettiness! Behold....

Just a quickie today to share my latest commission which I completed and handed over last week. I got given an adorable Elephant card and my mission... to copy it onto a 60 x 60cm canvas. 'Eeep!' was my first thought but after roughly a day and a half of therapeutic brush handling and covering myself in paint, I stood back with a massive cheesy grin and felt very proud of what I achieved :)

I've also been busy creating three more Sunshines for people for Christmas which has been muchos fun! I love doing work for other people, it's got to be the biggest compliment and it's a great feeling making someone smile!
Ok...so I think I've caught up with you all now! There's probably a million and one other things I could waffle on about but I'll spare you :) I'll try and arrange some pictures of my Christmas shop goodies for the next post...

An adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's story, where Max, a disobedient little boy sent to bed without his supper, creates his own world--a forest inhabited by ferocious wild creatures that crown Max as their ruler.

On Saturday I was up early to help my friend April model some of her beatifully cuddly crochet products with a couple of friends. We all headed to Wollaton Park which is a childhood haunt for me and a place which holds many fun time memories. After strolling through the wooded areas round the lake, feeding the dusks and kicking up autumn leaves April managed to get some fantastic photos, and although I have a crusty cornflake coldsore on my face right now the pics looked pretty good! Keep your eye on April's new website for the pics and check out her beautiful products! Perfect for the months ahead!
Aside from a spot of modelling I've been doodling, catching up with much needed rest and working on a recipe book for Children in need... stay tuned for sneaky peeks at my progress with that mini project! In the meantime here's what I wore this weekend... I told you I'm addicted!

I'm tempted to do a selection of girly and macho Sunshines for birthday cards following the same 'Overloaded with presents' theme... so many ideas so little time *sigh*
On another quick note I did a few final drawings for my friends tattoo as she selected the a Bow design to go with... take a peek....
