It's getting closer....

Christmas is getting closer, and greeting cards are piling up! Today I received this one from my publisher, and they used a photo from the book Party Food for Girls! They told me that they did ask the photographer first, but not me, as they wanted to surprise me :-). It was a lovely surprise!

From my part, I remember when I was young and made all my cards by hand... now the big bulk comes from various charities, and I only make a few because I just don't have the time. This year I made some with little painted cakes, first with watercolour, then with ink, and to finish gold sealing wax and my Z.A. stamp.

Last Italian class too, my students came in with lots of yummy food, and Linda made this potent little number from my blog, so we were all very merry!
Off to do some more packing for tomorrow, first stop: Singapore!!!

Ah, and this is my 500 post!!!
