Hope you have a wonderful and sparkly new year!
December has been my favourite month this year. I was very busy working on illustrations but also we saw lots of friends and just had a lot of festive fun really! I especially enjoyed going to Kensington dolls house festival in London and meeting my favourite miniature jeweller, going to Christmas parties and meals, going on a date night to our fave Japanese restaurant, taking Celestine to visit Santa, making and eating chocolate truffles with Henry's mum, finishing my deadline, writing more of my older fiction book, having a snow day and taking photos of Vinetta in it, decorating my castle for Christmas, celebrating Celestine's first birthday, seeing close friends who I had not seen for a while, and probably more that I can't remember! Anyway, here are a few of my favourite photos from the season:

Last week we went on holiday to Cornwall for an autumn/winter break as I mentioned on my 'professional' blog. I actually love going to Cornwall at this time of year becasue the beaches are empty of people and it feels very cosy. We went to the beach, had hot chocolate and pasties and cream tea and took Celestine to the aquarium in Newquay which she loved. It was so sweet to watch her being fascinated by the fish. Vinetta came too of course and went adventuring down at the beach, rowing in the rockpools and scrambling over the rocks. They are like lakes and mountains to her! We had pretty good weather considering the time of year and lots of nice evening sunshine - my favourite to take photos in! It was a lovely and relaxing break and I loved having just a little bit of time to do some miniature photography down there on my favourite beach - Pollyjoke!
Here is Vinetta's Halloween costume for this year. She prefers glam over spooky so she dressed as a sparkling white witch! I actually made this little dress a week before my baby was born last year but then ended up being too exhausted and heavily pregnant to get around to doing a photo shoot with it. It was going to be a Christmas fairy dress. It sat on my shelf all year long, occasionally winking at me with it's little stars and glitters until I thought to get it down for Halloween. So here it is!
Off she went into the dark night to her Halloween party which was held inside a pumpkin.
The next day she relaxed in her cosy bed to recover!
