Scavenger Hunt Sunday was tough




Self portrait of me
Oh, seriously, don't like doing this type of stuff, and not sure I would describe it as a "portrait", but it is me taken using a timer.
Something handmade........
Well, I have finally gotten round to doing some Christmas cards - but the one below isn't me at all, it is too serious.  




I could have gone traditional with candles as some people like them, but I find them too sombre, so instead I enlisted the help of some orange helpers to bring some festive cheer......





Marvin who was exceptionally good firstly doing a Cindy Sherman come William Wegman inspired pose


Yeh, right!

Marvin really was such an angel, he just did what we asked him to and as a result
Dexter got into it too




but not Carly below!  She was having none of it - bah humbug!  




So this card came to mind with her!




No she is not on the naughty list, but it did make me laugh.  I am sure she will comply another day?!


Other handmade stuff - Dexter is fantastic at art and I am gobsmacked by what he can make












Signs....












 well I like this photo I took outside the coffee shop which was advertising what they sell.  Having had the week I have had, quite apt as I have felt quite dizzy trying to be too many things at once.




with a week of making presents and cards and generally attempting too many creative things, I found this Scavenger Hunt really hard to do in my usual style.  Normally, I have it sort of planned by Monday, but nope, not this week.  By the end of it, my head was spinning around so maybe this picture might have suited better for my self portrait - trying to be too many things at once!







Do you think one of my pictures of Marvin or Carly could enter Paper Mama's Christmas card challenge?
