I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas from Oz!!
This is my Possum Christmas Present tag- please feel free to print it off and use it on all your presents! 🙂
I also wish everyone a safe and wonderful New Year, and I will be back on my Blog
here in Jan 2010 – so see you then!
Because we love possums (just incase you hadn’t worked that out by now!):
When we first arrived we had no idea what these little furry creatures were that were looking back at us from their tree branches!
Now that we know what they are, we are continuously playing ‘possum spotting’!! How many possums in the picture below can you see hiding out in the trees?
On Friday night was our work Xmas BBQ. I had designed and created the above image to go on our Christmas cards that we gave to all the volunteers that were there.
It was a fab evening getting to know everyone whilst having a good Ozzie BBQ!! Thanks to my work buddies for organising such a great evening!
It was also encouraging to hear that some volunteers were impressed by my monthly Possum
cartoon, and had even taken the time to look here on my blog
– so a really BIG THANK YOU to you guys, it is really great to hear such positive feedback!
Being a Norwich City
fan I usually travel to see them play once a month at Carrow Road while I was in the UK. Now that I am in Oz, I am missing seeing them play, especailly as this season they are playing very well and it is a delight to see them winning games confidently again.
I therefore wanted to show this in cartoon form. I have my canary (Norwich City are nicknamed the Canaries) perched on the edge of the branch, visiting my Australian animal cartoon characters (Cockaoo, Possum
and Koala) with the delights of another win, hoping that they will continue to win for promotion.
And I thought I should add bit of yellow!:
I have recently started work at the Canberra office of Conservation Volunteers Australia, where one of my duties is to send out the regular newsletter to the volunteers informing them of upcoming projects that they can join in on.
Meanwhile, I have been developing my character “Possum” and I thought the newsletter would idealy suit Possum’s cartoon strip.
When I showed my manager the cartoon he burst out laughing and agreed that I could include it in the newsletter, for which I am extremely grateful.
Today the newsletter went out to all volunteers and I hope that everyone liked it!
