Good Morning Ladies,
Happy Christmas Eve !!!
I expect that you will all be busy finalising all of your gift wrapping and food preparation for tomorrow.
My lot like to do baking on Christmas Eve, sausage rolls, mince pies, chocolate brownies etc, I love it, seeing them all busy making a mess in the kitchen, the resulting bakes never last very long, but they enjoy them and that's the whole point.
Paul and I certainly regretted leaving food shopping until yesterday, at 8am people were queuing across Aldi"s car park, there wasn't a parking space to be had, no milk, cream, bread, eggs or butter! We ended up having to visit Aldi, Morrisons and Asda, with half the list still remaining! Paul will nip out early morning, what we can't get we will live without for the whole 24 hrs that the shops are closed! I was amazed at the amount people were buying, some had two trollies overflowing, we looked a little sad with our basket!
I am so pleased to be able to have a Mixed Craft Saturday today,
Janet's pretty Wreath starts us off today, Janet designed and created this Wreath for her daughter Christina, knowing how incredibly talented Christina is with her hands and all things crafty I know that she will love and appreciate how much work went into this amazing piece, I see that you have used Sue's Filigree Poinsettia dies and Resin Cherubs and Floral hearts to decorate your wreath, it's so lovely seeing how your craft mojo has returned Janet, thank you so much for sharing xxx
Michele's Christmas Tree is next up, it looks beautiful and in this photo we get a quick view of Michele's lovely garden too. Thank you for photographing your tree Michele, it's lovely to see how differently we all decorate! Xxx
Karen's Venice themed click is next, the clock is a gift for Karen's Sister in Law, it was made using Indigo Blu's Clock kit a d Phill Martin's 'Sentimentally Yours' dies, the image on the clock was taken from the original photo below the clock, which Karen took into Serif and changed it to look like a painting, Venice is where Karen's SIL went to celebrate her 70th Birthday, do this clock will be an extra special and very thoughtful gift, thank you so much for sharing Karen, we were all dying to see how it turned out, it's amazing!

Cheryl made this beautiful lace trimmed bag for Tierney for Christmas, she will absolutely love it Cheryl, how special is a handmade gift, I love the lace you have used to trim the pocket, what little girl wouldn't love one of these? ! Thanks for sharing your Christmas crafts with us Cheryl xxx
Angela decided to change the colour scheme of her Christmas tree this year, surprised at the expense of a complete colour changd, Ang decided to buy some basic blue and white baubles and dig into her craft bit box to decorate them all, the results are stunning Ang, could you take a photo of the tree adorned with your hand decorated baubles, I bet it's stunning, these would cost you a fortune to buy!
Thank you for sharing them with us Angela, I am so pleased you still look in to see what everyone is making xxx
