Winter gift boxes.

I’m struggling to use blogger on my iPad so I’ve not been using my blog and promoting it to visitors in the way my design team commitments require.
There’s this whole issue with scrolling up and down a page to edit it. The issue being, I just can’t. So once I’ve added text, I can’t scroll through it to add photos in the righ place etc.
It’s made me lax.
Now I know, in the great scheme of things, nobody gives a hoot if I blog or not and it’s just one more blog for you to feel obliged to visit, but it’s the agreement we make when joining a design team. We are expected to promote the companies, retailers, manufacturers we design for when appropriate, on our personal blogs and other social media. Facebook I do. (Too much of).
I may have to dig my laptop out again and go back to blogging from there.

So I’ve got a lot of projects to catch up on and a lot of work to do to get visitors back in the numbers they used to visit.
I’ll start by simply adding images, over the next couple of posts, of my Yuletide and winter makes that I’ve done since November.
Starting with a couple of wintery gift boxes.
