Winter Walk

Today I went on a winter walk up Ben Bouie. It was very cold -1C and I was wearing way to many layers. Here are a few pictures from my walk....   The tree reminds me of one of my favorite quotes...

The pen is called Uni Chalk Marker and I got mine form Amazon. I also used a jam jar lid to draw round for the baubles as I'm a bit of a perfectionist.  I haven't totally finished the room yet so I will reveal this next week. This is just a wee taster.  I then let both of my daughters have a go with the pens. This is Sophie's window. This is Emily's...
