“What is Creative Mondays?

Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.

So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”

Another Christmas is upon us and it’s time to unwind, pull ourselves away from our brightly glowing devices and spend some time with the family. This year however, the location for my family Christmas will be a little different. I’ll be spending the holidays under the warmth of the Sicilian sun!

So as a little way to keep that classic Christmas feeling around this year I put together this Winter Wonderland piece, complete with snowman and the Northern Lights! Happy Holidays everyone!

Each year it’s become a great tradition with the wife and the in-laws to take a walk on or around Christmas Day. There always seems to be a time when the weather is clear enough and not quite as cold to enjoy walking off those giant Christmas dinners.

This year was no different and so I thought I’d post up a few shots from the journey. Hope everyone had a great Christmas and here’s to a new year!
