December...What a month it's been.....

First of all I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas day!
Whether it was spent with friends, family, pets or creating.
I'm sure that we have all eaten way too much and are now contemplating losing those extra love handles that we have now gained some time in the New Year.
Towards the end of November and into the beginning of December I finally got around to repainting the kitchen cupboards.
This is the before shot.
now the after shots.
 I painted then stained, then wiped the stain to give the paling effect. I added slate and trim to tidy it all up.
I then hand painted the little boy who is on his way around to the gorgeous little girl to give her his heart.
Although she has her heart in hand for the love of life and nature and all things wonderful...I'm sure that she will find room for more love!
