Mini festive catch up

I thought I'd take this opportunity to say 'Hello' and post some festive pictures to share with you all. A peek into Sunshine world at Christmas!

I'll start with some snow mainly because as I look out of my window I see it melting away into a bit of a slushy mush which makes me a tad sad because these pictures are just beautiful!

They were taken around where I work and it going to be tough facing the office again after Crimblemas especially knowing that it won't look this pretty tomorrow! It's hard to think only a couple of weeks ago everywhere looked like a picture perfect winter wonderland! Lovely!

Crimblemas is always a busy time for Sunshines and I love drawing them for people - it's great to be able to create something that's so personal to someone, whether I know them or not. I created some of my favourite sunshines in the latter part of this year and below are a couple more I am uber pleased with...

Mummy Sunshine - my lovely Mummy!

Starkey Family Portrait....

...all framed and ready to be wrapped!

Chris & Sarah

I'll be working on a couple more over the next couple of weeks so I'll be sure to share the progress of them with you all as I'm quite excited about them already!

So... if you remember I was a bridesmaid just before Christmas - YAY! - it was The. Most. PERFECT. day. EVER! Becky & Adam looked stunning and so in love I couldn't hold back the tears! I think I speak for everyone there when I say the day was amazingly special and perfect for them both! The bride was beautiful and the bridesmaids looked pretty darn good too! I only have a couple of pics for now but there will be plenty more to come I am sure!

Mr & Mrs Stanford!

The lovely Bridesmaids

Ok so one last (but definitely not least!) peek into my festive world...

I have been on Aunty duty this Christmas for my beautiful little Lexie and loved every minute of it! I mean how can you not love being in the presence of this little beaut? She's been a very good little girl and Santa definitely spoiled her on her first Christmas. It was lovely to be with the family and I can honestly say I've had a wonderful Christmas. I'm a very lucky girl and would just like to say a MASSVE Thank you to my friends, family, boy and all you lovelies that have supported me throughout 2010.

Here's to a FANTABULOUS 2011 filled with lots more sunshine, funtimes, laughs and adventures!

Ding Ding the bells are gonna chime!

So much exciting stuff has happened this month... and I promise to bombard you all with plenty of photo's and catch up waffle after the madness of Christmas has settles down.

I am off to Ely in Cambridgeshire tonight as one of my fantabulous friends is tying the knot festive styleeee in the morrow! YAY! I'm so frickin' excited not only about the day and the chance it may snow for the lovely couple but because I am to be bridesmaid! For the FIRST time too and this is the dress I shall be wearing...

I shall be pairing this festive beaut with some black heels and a lil' fur shrug (... you never know it may help keep me warm!). Might be able to smuggle a hot water bottle in there somewhere too!

The question be whether I wear my hair up or down now... decisions! Too many to make when I'm this excited!

Better get sorted and ready for the train ride... Toddles for now! Stay warm! x

Itch Gallery

The lovely Itch Gallery have recently posted some beautiful photos on their facebook page. Everything there looks stunning and I'm 'itching' to go (Boom boom!)

Seriously though, the photo's are beautiful, the treasures in the photo's are even more beautiful and I was so excited to see my work displayed in such a lovely way that I had to share it with you all!

Get down to Itch Gallery to do a spot of Christmas shopping or even just to perv at the pretties there! Perfect way to warm the soul is retail therapy...

The More It Snows (Tiddely-pom)

...the more it goes (Tiddley-pom)

I love the snow, it makes everything seem so peaceful, bright and pretty! Late last night and early this morning listening to the snow crunch under my booties and listening to the muffled sounds of the world I forgot about how tired I was and how much going to work rather than building a snowman sucks and enjoyed the quiet snowy wonderland.

Anywho... here's some pictures I wanted to share with you that were taken on my little rubbish relic of a phone, but I think you can still appreciate the prettiness of the snow all around.

Have fun out in the snow everyone and stay safe and keep toasty warm!
