the c word

This is a pretty random post and one that I had intended to share with you LAST Christmas. Ahem. But apparently Christmas is only 99 days away so I guess it's kind of relevant again. Yes, I said NINETY NINE.

Of course you know who Shannon Lamden is - creator, fabric designer, illustrator, superior cushion maker, crafting guru and all round funny girl at Aunty Cookie HQ. Each Christmas for the last few years (that I can remember..) she has offered family portrait commissions. A fabulously unique gift if ever there was one. Each year I have thought how much I would like to have one done of our family. Each year the money has been spent elsewhere given the expensive nature of the silly season and I am still without a portrait. But last year I did buy one for my sister, her husband and their brand new son.

I gave her a very short brief on their personalities..

Bree - likes chocolate, Kardashians, half strength caramel lattes, telling it like it is
Ash - likes surfing, discovery channel, peace and quiet
Rome - likes boobs, sleeping and staying in his pjs all day

The resemblance is uncanny, don't you think?

She's a busy woman and there's no telling whether she'll be offering up her usual Christmas commission announcement but I'll definitely be keeping an ear out. You should too.
