bluespirit: (Buddy - hullooo?)
+  Hi everyone & a very belated 'Happy New Year'!
I hope everyone is well & happy.  We're all good here at Chez Buddy.
Here's a pic of Bud on one of our walks this week. We'd had some snow & it was so beautiful in the early morning light.

+  Oh, & the reveal has been done (actually a while ago now) for [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa.
I was so pleased to have this beautiful piece of art done for me by [livejournal.com profile] mella68, & here's what I made for [livejournal.com profile] danceswithgary:

Click on the teaser:




+  Did/does anyone watch* Star Trek: Enterprise?  We gave it a try back when it first aired but didn't really take to it & only watched about half a dozen eps.  However, we decided to try again & bought the boxed set of the entire series (sadly only 4 seasons) & we're absolutely loving it! We're currently part of the way through season 3 with the Xindi threat. Love, love, love it!
*Please - no spoilers! *g*


+  I'm still busy sewing & have just finished making this teddy bear for my cousin's little girl's 7th birthday tomorrow. The clothes were a bit fiddly, but I'm quite pleased with how she's turned out in the end.

Happy Friday, all!
*hugs*
bluespirit: (Buddy Xmas)
Phew! Just finished wrapping the last of the presents & icing the Xmas cake.  Tomorrow will be spent with food prep for The Big Day (& then an evening watching Fellowship of the Ring as we begin our annual festive LotR marathon. Woot!)

So, I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy holidays (whatever you celebrate - or don't.)

Here's Bud getting festive...

I haven't been able to write anything festive but, if you fancy a bit of McSheppymas, then here's an oldie:
'Rodney’s extra-special, top-secret, hush-hush mission'. ♥

And don't forget the lovely work being shared at [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa!

Happy Holidays!
*hugs*
bluespirit: (SGA McShep all I want)
Posting is underway at [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa & there's already some gorgeous work to enjoy.
Do pop over & wallow in the beauty (& there's lots & lots of McShep to make your heart glad! ♥ )

After about 15 years of the same hairstyle, I've had a new look!

I've also finished my contribution to this year's [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa & have submitted it.
I feel like I'm on a roll! LOL

And I'm just playing 'The Last Goodbye' on repeat - I absolutely love it!

Happy Friday, everyone!

bluespirit: (SGA McShep Time & Tide)
Well, I'm only three months late, but I've finally posted my contribution to last year's sga_art_santa in my fic & art journal.
*face palm*
My recipient was the lovely [personal profile] mella68  who has a fondness for historical AUs & McShep - two of my favourite things!
So, I decided to go for a romantic 1920s piece that was also quite festive (lots of snow. *g*)

Note: The boys aren't necessarily Lord John & Rodney from Time & Tide - but they certainly could be! *g*

Teaser (clicky!)

Teaser for World, far away art


And I must rec the simply gorgeous piece that the wonderful & talented [personal profile] neevebrody  made for me as my Secret Santa.  It's called 'An Invitation for Christmas' & is an AU with a young!John&Rodney spending Christmas in their first apartment together.
*squee*
It's divine.  ♥

I know it's been ages, but if anyone didn't check out the sga_art_santa submissions for 2012 then please do.  We had the most amazing selection again, & I was so proud to be modding such a talented bunch of great artists.




bluespirit: (SGA John is stuck chibi)
I'm posting the [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santas this week & since lj has changed the way the scrapbook works, it's taking me way longer than usual. Aaaargh! 
I have so many other things that need doing, too.  At this rate, our Christmas decorations won't be up until Boxing Day!
*snort*
Still - there's some gorgeous pieces to enjoy, so it's definitely worth it in the end. :)

Do please pop over to [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa & check out the goodies.  There are 7 out of the total 20 submissions posted so far, with new pieces being shared every day until Saturday.

I wonder if anyone will be able to spot my contribution when it's posted?  (I'm thinking probably yes because I'm aware I have a definite 'style'. *g*)

Happy Tuesday, my lovelies!
*hugs*
bluespirit: (SGA Rodney ho snark ho)
Posting has begun over at [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa!
We have 3 gifts today & more every day until Sat 22nd.
Do pop over & enjoy the goodies (& please leave a comment for our hardworking artist elves!)
