Happy New Year Everyone

Happy New Year Everyone

 

Yay it’s nearly new years eve, I love this time of year as I always have such high hopes of how much healthier I’ll be in the new year, how the house will be kept spotlessly clean and how I’ll be able to plan my work so I’m not up untill stupid-o-clock finishing jobs that customers want in a hurry.
The feeling never lasts for long, and have doubts it will do this year as I have graphics and photography work coming out of my ears, as well as a new office to move in to over the next few weeks … yes I’m finally moving in to an office in a complex called ‘The Creative Exchange’ so no more working from home for me.
I can’t wait to get out and see people, swap creative ideas and get some fresh inspiration as well as expand my business and offer some new services that I’m really excited about…….. I’ll tell you more over the next few weeks.

 

After spending Christmas husbandless I finally have him home again so I’m taking a few days off to chill before the mad panic of moving starts!.
Christmas was nice though, I had a whole day of not even thinking about work, on boxing day it all started again though as I’ve designed 2 posters for clients and added lots more new gifts and stationery to both of my online shops, I will finish this blog by showing some of them.

 

Please visit my Photography Gift Shop
or my Hippy Gift Shop to see lots more.

I hope you all have a fantastic New Year with very little hangovers!

 

 

Merry Christmas and a Sneezy New Year

Yay its nearly christmas .. and i’m getting a cold!
My hubby is away working and wont be home untill the 28th too so ‘bah hubug’ to that!!

I thought i’d put a collection of funny things here to cheer myself up as well as giving you a smile!

To start with here’s my favorite christmas song
I wanted to play this at the end of our wedding but my husband put his foot down and wouldn’t allow it, he said it wasn’t suitable for a June wedding, what a meanie!

The perfect t-shirt for the new years day hangover.

A cute winter poem to make you smile.
This time last year i was humming this poem to myself, it’s not quite the same this year with the mild English weather but here goes anyway!

The more it snows (Tiddely pom),
The more it goes (Tiddely pom),
The more it goes (Tiddely pom),
On snowing. And nobody knows (Tiddely pom),
How cold my toes (Tiddely pom),
How cold my toes (Tiddely pom),
Are growing.

A.A. Milne
Winnie the Pooh
The House at Pooh Corner

And some terrible christmas jokes .. christmas wouldn’t be the same without them!

Why does Santa have three gardens? So he can ho-ho-ho!

Did you hear about the dyslexic devil worshipper?
He sold his soul to Santa.

Why Doesn’t Santa Have Any Children? Because He Only Comes Once A Year And That’s Down The Chimney!

Where do you find reindeer? It depends on where you leave them!

Why is Christmas just like a day at the office?
You do all the work and the fat guy with the suit gets all the credit.

Who beats his chest and swings from Christmas cake to Christmas cake?
Tarzipan!

Have a mega fantastic super special Christmas everyone.

with love from Pixie xx

Scuba Diving in Sharm El Sheikh Egypt

I’m back after a fantastic scuba diving holiday in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
We did our PADI open water course last year and went back to the same hotel (Reef Oasis) to get some more diving in!
The sea seemed a bit colder this year and there seemed to be less fish around than prevoius years which was a shame but we still had a great time scuba diving and snorkeling.
I also tried out my new underwater camera, its a Panasonic Lumix DMC – TS3 It’s quite good but i’ll have to save up for the underwater camera case for my Canon D60 as i’m so used to using a manual camera and only being able to use an auto mode is frustrating!
I’m glad to say we didn’t see any sharks while we were there, although i did get a fright from a 3ft Trigger fish who decided to chase me! I think I scared him away with my bright pink fins kicking franticly as I swam in the opposite direction … he had big teeth!
I’ve put all of my underwater photos in to a slide show (audio visual presentation) that you can see on youtube here

 

And all my photos from around the hotel are on an audio visual presentation here
I thought i’d make these AV’s from my un-edited holiday snaps instead of uploading the pictures one by one to the net as it’s much quicker and easier for everyone to see.
I also have many pictures here that i’ll be uploading to a stock library and my POD sites that are a better quality so keep watching, their will be lots more to see over the next few weeks!

 

I’ve had my brake now and have to go back and sort our house out, the builders are in replacing our kitchen and i have lot’s of graphics work to do too, i’ll need another holiday after all of this!

Satan on holidays .. or not! (part 3)

Hello eveyone, it’s satan the cat again!
I thought i’d pop on and write another blog before my pre-dinner nap and let you all know that i’ve been told i MUST stay here and guard the house while Pixie and Rich go to Egypt!
I found out that they weren’t going to Turkey so don’t really mind! I’ve heard that the Egyptians are rather fond of cats but it’s going to be way too hot at this time of year and my black fur and I can’t handle too much heat, so while there away scuba diving i’ll be here with the lovely lady who lives next door for company.
She’s such a nice lady and remembers to brush me before i have my breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight feast unlike Pixie who only brushes me before my breakfast!
I’ll kick up a fuss though and ignore Pixie and Rich when they start packing their bags and ignore them both again when they arrive home to make them think i’m not happy staying here with the lady next door, it’d only upset them if they thought i won’t miss them!

 

Anyway enough of me now and i’ll tell you what Pixie has been up to this week with her Hippy Gift Shop.
So far i’ve been thrown off her lap 4 times in a fit of excitement as she’s gained another 4 Todays Best Awards for these items in her shop

She’s also been updating her ‘about me and my art and photography’ squidoo lens that you can see here Squidoo lens – about me and my art It features a rather attractive picture of myself too so i’m quite happy about that.

I’m off for my nap now and am going to start practicing my sulking impressions in time for when they go away!

Satan on holidays

Hi everyone, its me again, Satan the cat!
I thought i’d pop on again and tell you all about my latest thoughts.

 

Between my after dinner nap and my before going to bed nap, I like to watch TV. It is amazing what you can learn from the TV and the other day I was absolutely astonished. I discovered that there are many dogs who take their humans on holiday. I could see them playing on the beach and running through the woods. Now, I don’t normally think much of dogs because they are so inferior to cats, but this really impressed me. What a great idea! I am going to persuade Pixie and Rich to let me take them on holiday. I will let you know how I get on.

 

In the meantime Pixie has been ignoring me as she’s been far to busy with her work, she’s working on a graphics project for a local client, a filming project for a not so local client, as well as adding lots of new canvas prints and photo prints to her shops, she’s also added some new designs to her hippy gift shop, heres a few of her latest products.

 

 

As well as all of this pixie has created a lens on squidoo.com to showcase the awards she’s won for some of the items in her shops over the last few months as well as some of her favorite todays best awards from other shops.

 

  Time for a nap now….
