Ooft, it’s all go again. Today I have been mostly painting a dinosaur. A real dinosaur!! Well, ok it’s maybe a fake skeleton. I actually have an irrational fear of dinosaurs, had it ever since Jurassic Park which everyone finds hilarious. Dinosaurs and zombies..cannae abide them, I think that’s actually quite rational. Dino skeletons are fine though.

Just got a crazy coloured woolly sock aid package through the door made by my mum. They are actually 2 matching pairs, not odd.😂 Toes will be toasty this winter! Apologies for blinding anyone with my peely waley legs, they haven’t seen any sun since 2018.

Today I have been mostly making gravel. Yes, gravel. . But why, I hear you say? Well, it’s proven quite difficult to drill holes in gravel of course but if you make it out of something much softer it’s a doddle. . But why do you need to drill holes in gravel, you continue to ask? . . . It’s theatre darling...it’s theatre...*whimsical pose ?♀️ . #theatre #propmaking #props #costume #making #casting #mouldmaking #jesmonite #plaster #gravel #propmaker #drillingholes @jesmonite_ltd

I usually make tablet at Xmas time but it didn’t happen this year. Finally got round to it today to use up a tin of condensed milk that’s been sitting in the cupboard since the previous year. I’m generally trying to consume less dairy so I only have soya milk and dairy free marg in the fridge but I’m very pleased to say that it still worked no bother with the alternatives. Next try is to make dairy free condensed milk - Google says there are recipes using soya or coconut milk. Thing is, I have to give it away to folk as I will die if I keep this to myself so anyone wants any give me a shout. I’ll try and give it away to my neighbours though. . You’ll need to excuse me now whilst I go into a sugar coma after scarfing all the pot scrapings...😳

The snow today reminded of a college project I did a few years ago but never quite finished. The icy snowy pavement to decorate a model doorway. No idea why I decided to put a wee toaty severed head in a frozen puddle but I quite like it. Note to self - must finish! Anyone else got a ton of unfinished projects glaring at you from a shelf or a cupboard?

Happy New Year everybody! Back home in the Weege and ready to boogie. My beautiful new 2021 calendar by @markgoeswild is up. Just need to fill it with all stuff I’m going to be working on this year. Hmmm, admittedly looking a bit sparse at the moment so if you want anything made give me a holler. I can do extraordinary things with my hands! What?? Get your minds out the gutter, you filthy beasts!! But seriously check out Mark’s gorgeous photos of the wilds of Scotland. I shall be all the cuteness with a new Scottish critter each month.

Last Daisy dog walk of 2020 visiting my favourite tree. It’s a giant oak, very sprawley and goodness knows how old. Perfect for climbing. I bet it’s seen many a crazy year though. I’ve always imagined it harbouring a pursued, cow rustling Rob Roy McGregor or other local legend over the last few centuries. It will likely still be standing long after we’ve all turned to dust. For now though, we look to a new year and hopefully a better one for all, especially trees. . Happy Hogmanay and awra best for 2021 when it happens for you!💥🎉🎊🪅🥂🍾👍🌳🌳🌳🌳
Decided to make a compilation of pretty much everything I’ve made this year. A whole year condensed into 8 secs. Yikes! It’s certainly sobering to think all those many many many...many hours can be squashed so small but satisfying to see it all in one place. Some pics are fuzzed as can’t show you properly yet, might be overkill but I don’t want to get in trouble!
2020 has been a bit of a rollercoaster to say the least. Started out well, then came to an abrupt halt for quite some time, then the last few months have been thankfully busy busy busy. I feel very lucky to come out of this year in mostly one piece. I’ve met so many wonderful new people this year who (along with those I already know) have given me valuable advice, support and actual proper work, so a big thank you to you all.
I know a lot of people have been hit exceptionally hard this year and we all still have quite a while to go before we can get rid of this virus but we will. Keep on truckin’, we’ll all get there. Here’s to a spectacular, prosperous, safe and healthy 2021! Best wishes and happy festivities to one and all!🍾🎉🎊🎄🎅🥂👏
One last tiny shelf of 2020 for my tiny speakers above my tiny desk in my workshop. Using up a bit of some of the random colours of spray paint I have that will unlikely be used for any project. What else are you supposed to do with them?
Scrap trim, skirting and ply in orange, hot pink, turquoise and silver. Well, why not, it is the festive season after all!

This week I have been building a little house. Not for me though, I may be wee but I’m not that wee. It is for to house a wee gas tank so it (hopefully) doesn’t freeze its butt off over the winter. A cosy dwelling to be stuffed with straw. Using my signature old, shonky found plywood, everything a bit bendy, a bit rough and ready but with a lick of paint she’ll be lookin’ braw.😁🏚💨
