I'm back...good food, good company, good time!

Its been quite a while since I last blogged, sorry about that. I decided to take a few weeks off work over Christmas which for me means turning the computer off! If I even go to check my emails my holiday is over because my brain starts to think about what needs to be done, how much there is to do and so on. Before I know it I'm cutting out bears and getting in a panic ;0)

It been such a lovely few weeks, I've napped in the day (which I never do) watched bad TV, caught up with dear friends and family and generally re-charged my batteries for the year ahead as its going to be another busy one.

But before I fill you in on the 2012 plans here's a few pictures of my special holiday break

Homemade glitter cranberry sauce

The main event

Christmas dinner

Christmas tea

So many presents under the tree, I was very spoilt
(more on that later)

Our beautiful tree

I made hampers for everyone presents,
it took me three months of hard work but was so worth it.
I made jams, chutneys, home grown dried herbs, soaps, fairy houses,
snowmen and the list goes on

and finally I did do a little work,
the studio needed a good spring clean and a change around.
Its so much better now and I can't wait to start making a mess again!


  1. That looks like a fun and lovely gathering! I don't know how you managed to make all those gifts and bears and mice too! You deserve to be able to watch TV and nap! Do you have any photos of the fairy houses? I bet the recipients of your hampers were delighted!

    Happy New Year Elanor!


  2. Happy new year! Looks like you're all set to attack the bears and meeces again :o)

  3. Beautiful food, and gifts, so colorful. It is so nice to see all of your goodies.
