Thaw and other Happy Highlights

A happy moment in a very busy week. It’s not much, but what you see here is a quick glimpse down the rabbit hole into my Land Of Happy. A cuppa, a magazine and a piece (or two!) of Christmas cake on a pretty china plate. Mum makes me a cake every year and pops it in the post. This one arrived yesterday, I was so happy!

How did Thaw reach Issue 6 before it arrived on my ‘mag radar’ ?? I rushed out and ordered a copy sans tarder- thanks Allison for letting me know! It’s got a fab article on Ric Rac, stories from an organic farm, a bit of vox populi action asking “What’s playing on your iPod this summer” – I love a bit of street action! And the nicest surprise of them all was finding some Kids With Crayons magic in the We Just Love This section! Thanks guys, your mag is marvellous!

And what about this bit of happy … it’s called “Uncle Mark flying to London”. That’s my favourite drawing title all week! It’s all wrapped up and on it’s way to London as we speak.
Here’s another Happy Highlight, a pendant for a guy – why not! Ben’s a very popular teacher and I thinks it’s fabulous, hope he does too!
And this little guy has had me smiling all week. Potato-head people are my favourite people!

More Happy Moments came from putting this lovely lass together. She was beautifully coloured in and I wasn’t sure how she would look with just her outlines and I’m really delighted with the outcome.
You might say I was … Happy! … in the end!

frankie and ray - You have been busy! Well done! That cake looks fabulous, I’m off to put the kettle on and finish that custard tart I started on earlier….
I’m loving the ‘smiling guy’!
