Hope you all survived the celebrations on New Year's Eve, and that the hangovers are now cured....
I celebrated with a cup of cocoa and ginger biscuits, perhaps not really traditional, but I enjoyed it.
The first day of January dawned here bright and sunny., and after drinking my coffee I walked to Schloss Kalkum to visit the ducks.
The village street behind the castle is also very pretty:
In the park I disovered more trees in bloom, a lovely sight for the beginning of January.
This doggy was busy pulling his 2 legged companion around:
And the ducks were all happy and busy with their usual ducky lives:
I painted a little canvas for one of my DT pieces at Gecko Galz. I used colours that are in the image to paint the background, and printed the image onto canvas. I used some twigs gathered on my walks as embellishments, after spraying them with some tinned 'snow'. The leaves and flowers were sprayed with silver. I used hot glue to fix them onto the canvas.

Gecko Galz once again has a huge selection of new digi-stamps, papers and collage sheets, and some good freebies worth looking at!
I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted as always, by Eva and Kristin, and The Cheerful Stamp Pad, anything goes challenge.
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
