IF. Similar

Last week we had our first taste of winter (albeit only lasted a day!). Seeing those first falling flakes never fails to excite me,
That was my inspiration as no two snowflakes are the same (difficult to prove?) and yet a covering of snow make everything look similar.

My flake shapes are based on the amazing photographs of Kenneth Libbrecht found in The Little Book Of Snowflakes or on his web site, if you have a minute they’re well worth a look.

IF. Balloon

December’s here, Christmas and all it brings is just around the corner!

For someone with a mouth full of sweet teeth there’s so much to look forward to, mince pies, chocolates, biscuits, mince pies, Christmas cake, trifle, mince pies, Christmas pudding, mince pies, stollen and not forgetting mince pies (my favourites).
The problem…blowing up like a balloon!
So it’s everything in moderation, watch what I eat, don’t over do it or I could hit a gym in Jan?

Errm…pass me a pie!
