The New Year

Like most folk Barry and I have established a couple of family traditions, one of which is to send out New Year cards instead of Christmas cards, and to use the days between Christmas and New Year to fiddle, design and make them.

Barry has gone for a gorgeous iPhoneography theme (but you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see them), whereas I stuck with the pebble mood that overtook me in the latter part of the year and used a photograph of my 2012 pebbles.

So with wishes for a happy, creative, peaceful and inspiring New Year...


  1. Happy New Year Fiona! I ***love*** my pebbles and plan to photograph them to show you very soon! Looking forward to reading your insightful posts in 2012. :) xo

  9. My collection of your pebbles seems to be growing. Do they breed on the shelf while I'm not looking? Love the card, it has a very 3D look.
