Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Our Favourite DT make from 2013

Happy New Year!

Hope you all enjoyed the Festive period but are now ready for 2014. I know I am!

Anyway, for this week's Polkadoodles challenge we were asked to go back and choose our favourite DT make from 2013.

Now for me, this was easy - A) I was a newbie DT so didn't join until later in the year and B) I knew straight away what to choose!!

 It had to be my santa hanging.

Here's what I said at the time - 

"For this challenge I decided to set myself a task of using the digi images from the amazing Home For Christmas CD  to create a wreath. I chose the fabulous Poinsettia and the super santa. I took both into Serif Craft Artist and digitally manipulated the images - flipping to face the opposite way & changing sizes - positioning them around a rough circular shape. Once happy I printed it off and coloured every single image with a mix of markers including some Graph It markers. I chose more contemporary colours to match my home decor and once coloured I attached a ribbon."



Here's some close ups - 




I proudly put this up in my kitchen and am reluctantly going to take it down. I spent too much time colouring this for it to hide away all year. Maybe I'll hang it in my craft room........

Take care Zo xx

Happy New Year Zo,
I don't blame you for not wanting to take your fantastic Santa hanging down. It's great.
Your colours too and not the usual Christmassy greens and reds. Very personal.
I agree I think you should hang it in your craft room ;D
Have a great weekend too xoxo
