Zoe - Week 51 "Make a gift using fabric"

Good Morning Lovelies! And a very Merry Christmas one and all! Today is my birthday, rather a large number 52 eek! I'd rather forget lol, we are in Canada for Christmas with our beautiful daughter, we just returned there on Friday having spent 5 days in New York, wow what a place, really not for me, Too big, too crowded, too busy, very unfriendly and I found it a bit scary, I guess it's not for everyone? Lol however we visited some interesting places. We did so much walking I've returned with a bad knee. Now I'm back with my daughter I'm trying to rest it and it is starting to feel better. Most of the snow we had before we went to NY has melted but they said we are due more yesterday (scheduled post by the way) I hope we have a white Christmas. We are spending Christmas Day at Keenan's parents (daughters boyfriend) which will be great, lots of fun, food and laughter, they are great people.

Anyway less of my rambling on, here is my DT sample for Premuim Craft Brands! I have made a wall hanging out of mini canvases, I have attempted to make multi media canvases with White Maemeri Gesso, coloured in places with Magenta Tint Pan Pastels, the photographs are of each of our little fostered girls that have all gone on to adoption! I hope you like it?

This top one is Angel, we had her from 4 days old until she was 17 months old, she was 4 in September.

The second one is Millie, we had her from 12 months old until one month before her 3rd birthday which was last February.

And finally our last little darling Ruby, we got her at 4 and a half months old, she moved the day after her 1st birthday, on the 9th November, so we have done 2 adoptions this year, a roller coaster of emotion I can tell ya! :,( it's true what they say though! "Time is a healer" although I never get over them going, but the pain does ease in time!


All my special baby girls, I love them so much and miss them, there's never a day goes by that I don't think about them!

Hopefully we will return in the New Year refreshed and ready for a new baby? :)

I hope you like my Wallhanging? Merry Christmas and hugs, Zoe xxx
