2009 has already started for most of the world, but right now for me it’s still 2008. It was a hard year, it was a good year, it was a sad year and it was a ‘suddenly Canada is smothered in snow at the very end of the’ year. 2009 can only get better or worse, 50/50. For now I can show you some holidays gifts I made for family in ’08, now that the year is wrapping up.
I (nervously) asked the very funny and very talented Kate Beaton if I could put one of her comics onto a cookie jar. This comic to be exact. My dad is a big history-fan of Napoleon. And he likes cookies. I imagined he would like her comics too, so as an xmas gift I painted a little cookie jar.
Poor Napoleon, how salty his cookies must taste from his sad, sad tears. I filled the jar with cookies (and English Mints and licorice) and sent it along with other Napoleon-related gift items (that I shall post in the future).
(The new section added to gallery is called ‘Craftyness’ with the idea that all things ‘crafty’ go there; so it’s not a showcase of projects that were a result of my ‘craftiness’.) …and…is that music and meowing that I hear? What are those crazy cats up to this New Years?
