last Monday of February


                          Thank you for stopping by, I love to read your comments.

Where is this year going its the last Monday of February and it only seems two minutes ago that it was Christmas, On Face book there are people who are doing a countdown to Christmas one in how many sleeps, 

I was playing some time ago with  custard tin and made it into a holder for felt tip pens, I gave it to my granddaughter Stephanie as she really liked it. Along came Maddy to play and spotted said tin. Well Maddy loved it and asked where it came from and was told I made it, She asked if I would make her one and said" do the pens come with it " Well I have made another for Maddy and thought I would show it here . I just hope Maddy likes it 

Another sketch today this time " Less is more."  find the sketch HERE
