Let me start with a picture I wanted to show you for a long time, it´s a birthday card my friend Amy made for me - a little portrait of myself and my two doggies Gustav and Snuff. I love it and decided to frame it, so now it´s part of a little stilleben showing off my collection of vintage jewellery and other treasures collected over the years.
Christmas was nice until our beloved old dog Snuff (to the right in the picture) suffered a stroke on Christmas day. It was awful, but luckily he is recovering and back on his feet again, a bit of a miracle if you know he is over 14 years old! I guess he has too good a doggy life to give it up!
Here he has a cuddle with his pal Gustav, our other dog, who was really concerned about his friend!
Here are some pictures of my Christmas decorations and the Christmas tree:

I´m also working on a couple of new brooch designs for next season, for example these "Sweetheart" brooches:
Okay, that´s all for now! I´m very happy I managed to update my blog in time to wish you all a happy, creative and exciting New Year and to say thank you for following my blog through the last year! See you in 2011!
