We are approaching the festive season and the Herstmonceux Christmas trail, where I enthuse villagers, shopkeepers and children to decorate their doors or windows to make the village look even prettier than usual. This year's theme is ‘Christmas Stockings’, so to get the ball rolling I have designed some 'Santa’s Little Helper' Christmas Cards. The highlight of 2009 for me, has been adopting Finn our Lurcher and Bea our Greyhound and helping them settle into their new home. So I have three Sighthound designs; whippet, greyhound & lurcher - complete with knitted stockings. The cards have been printed by Abacus Colour Printers Ltd and delivered this week. Once packed they will be available to buy online.
