So this is it!

As you read this I am currently getting happily drunk at my friend Debbie's house - but this is a scheduled post because I love you so much! I like doing these little round up of the year posts, because I like looking through pictures on my computer..
(A quick note - I don't really show pictures of my artwork on my blog, because I like to keep it mostly separate, but there will be some pictures included here, because it's been a massive part of my life this year, obviously! So saying that, these pictures are all mine, taken by me, with my own camera. Please don't reuse them! This is why I made them really small..)

- Celebrating New Year with Debbie, drunkenly in my front garden.
- A beautiful evening at St. Pauls with my friend Tam.
- Discovering the Hunterian Museum - my new favourite place in the world.
- Embracing scruffy fringes and a lack of makeup.

- My dad had a knee replacement, in payment for driving places, I took pictures of his bruising.
- I just like fish, okay?
- Learnt how to silkscreen - made prints inspired by my dads bruises.
- Good nights out with good friends!

The rest of the year is under the jump!

Merry, merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas..

Oh my God. I suppose that is what you do at Christmas, but oh my God, I feel like I have never eaten so much in my life. I have also been drinking since lunchtime and I don't think that is too good either, haha. Me and the family have had a lovely day, watching DVD's and other things. 

Our christmas tree and some decorations - my mum makes these beautiful handmade quilts and most of the decorations in the house have been handmade by my mum.. so it feels really lovely at home right now.

Food. So much food. I made lots of gingerbread and mince pies and sausage rolls and banana cake and so much other food! My brother also made a lot of eggnogg.. and I must admit, I am quite partial to it. It tastes a bit like a White Russian drink, if you've ever tried one. It sounds really foul, but it's so good! And my mums Christmas pudding all lit up.. I don't like Christmas pudding, but I like watching it all lit up!

Below the jump are some of my favourite gifts.. Just because I'm really excited over them! Plus I love seeing what other people get..
