Nordic Giveaway

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Miss Kim's work, so I'm already
kicking myself for telling you about her cool giveaway. See, I have my
heart set on this gorgeous albino reindeer. But everybody should have
a Longhurst beauty in their home, so you better get a move on and enter.

Miss Kim and I

Kim Longhurst, illustrator and maker extraordinaire, and I did some trading.
I'm crazy about Kim's work and am now the proud owner of 3 of her amazing
prints. Seeing them in my home every day really makes me smile!
Kim, you totally rock! Thanks for making me soooo happy :)

'Let's dream of fishing' was a Christmas gift for my sister
and Matt in memory of their beautiful 'Swartkat' aka 'Shongi'.

Here are some pics of the brooches I made for Kim.

Kim is a magpie lover, so I made this one especially for her.

Pongo the kitty was commissioned for Kjersti as part of the Package Project.

One of my 'birds in flight' was part of the awesome 12 Days of Giveaways.

Nunu the black labby is now at home with Kim's friend, Rhenda from iKhaya.
