Janet's Pretty Decorated Box
Jess's Soap Tortes
Myra's fabulous Crafts
Good Saturday Morning,
I hope you all have a lovely weekend planned and that you have some pennies left after shopping for all of the 'Black Friday' bargains yesterday! I think that most places are having 'Black weekends' though! I find it odd they we even 'follow' the tradition here as it is traditionally the first Friday after Thanksgiving and that is the time that most Americans start shopping for Christmas and therefore the first day that some companies go into the 'Black'!
On to today's Mixed crafts......
First up is Janet's beautifully decorated box, I love the gorgeous paper that you have used and the
paper doily with the pearl string and stunning glazed flower really do compliment the paper perfectly, you have finished the box so perfectly with that gorgeous ribbon and bow trim.
Thank you so much Janet for sending me your crafts to share with everyone in the cafe, you are very much in our thoughts and prayers at the moment my lovely, I know this is a very sad time of year for you, sending loving hugs xxxx
Next up we have the beautiful Flower Soap Tortes, that have been expertly made by our very own Jess, I love how you have made them in Pink, red, white, burgundy and purple, there is a colour there for just about everyone. I bet they look beautiful tied in a bit of cellophane with a matching colour bow, you are very skilled Jess, please could you let us know how you make them?
Thank you for sending the photo of them in for me to share with everyone xxxx
Last but not least we have a fabulous selection of hand made goodies from Myra, the planter made from pegs that Myra pegged onto a tuna tin (I think) and then painted that lovely matt blue is just incredible to see in 'real life', something simple but hugely effective, then there is the Sticky Note Holder that has been made using dies and decorated with a beautiful butterfly, again so clever and so useful. I didn't ask about the little bobbin with a safety pin in it, but to me it looks like one of those fabulous photo holders for your desk! There were so many examples on show at the retreat that Myra had made, all totally genius in design, thank you Myra for your inspiration. xxxx
I am off to hide out in my craft room for a while, it needs a good tidy (again) and I also have a load of stuff to move back in from the dining room where Pat and Sue and I crafted this week, Pat and I were very productive yesterday, Pat did lots of stamping and colouring in and I got a card made,
that's almost unheard of when we get together!
Love and hugs
