Celebrate winter


There is  super new theme for December  over at

Sheila  has chosen ''Lets Celebrate''.



This began with  a mop up page in my 8 x 8 inch journal.  Next, I used this pretty robin napkin.

I have to add a bit of background story here as to what was going on in my head.
I had been watching the birds in the garden this morning . There was a heavy frost and everywhere was white. We had a robin sitting in the berry bush when  another  turned up close by,  they seemed to be communicating  and slowly came closer together.  So maybe our birds have similar friendships to us and can share the winter berries, celebrating natures bounty.
I wonder.....................if the mice think the same.




Thank you for calling in to see me today,
you are always welcome here.

  3. Oh I love this page Yvonne! The background is beautiful, the pinks and yellows are so pretty! You always find the most amazing napkins, the ones I've seen always have big polka dots or chevrons on them!! My favourite are the mice exchanging secrets under the branch, what a sweet scene! hugs :)

  7. That is really lovely, Yvonne. The robin is such a friendly bird, we always say hello to any robin and they look back at us instead of flying off like other birds. So nice to think robins have robin friends too.

  9. You find the most beautiful napkins, Yvonne. And now that I know what a mop-up page is, I can truly appreciate the beauty of this page.

    I adored reading the back story and what you were thinking when you made this beautiful art for Sheila's challenge at Art Journal Journey. It's a wonderful entry. Thanks for joining us with your beautiful robin at Art Journal Journey.

  20. Beautiful page and back story! I love robins and this image is beautiful, it reminds me of the Christmas cards from my mum and dad 😁. My mum does cross stitch embroidery and always sews us a robin card for Christmas, I have quite a few on display as I put every one of them up every year ...lol 😉. Thanks for the smiles and wishing you a happy week! J 😊
