Old Town Mill

The view from my bedroom window this morning. I'm glad the snow has lasted till the weekend- its somewhat easier to appreciate it when not struggling to get the kids down the hill to school. We had a great time sledging yesterday then home to do crafts with the kids. We were making 'ATCs' (Artists trading cards) a bit of an American thing -not many people know about them here in England. They are basically mini artworks 7 x 9 cms designed to swap with your friends and its great to be able to create a couple of finished pieces in the space of an hour. The kids did some great ones using old comics to collage with and I did a collage of a bird.
Would quite like to do some more similar ones soon, just been watching the birds from the french window in the workroom- they look so lovely silhouetted against the snow.

Hi Rachel, Thanks for that and thanks for the advice last week. When I began to set up a blog it turned out i'd actually already done so in 2007 but had never done anything with it - must have been one of those late night brainstorms... I do have a vague recolection. Anyway better late than never! Mine seems pretty basic compared to yours though - think I have lots too learn. Your pictures are fantastic too. XK
