Good Morning Ladies,
We have another line up of fantastic crafts, so I will dive straight in to sharing them with all of you...
Michele's first project (above) is this fantastic little Desk Calendar and Sticky Note holder, what an absolutely fantastic idea. Michele is making some of these ready for her sale table next weekend. I think that they are a great craft fair item as they are relatively cheap and fast to make. I love the paper you have used to cover them too.
Michele bagged another amazing bargain from Craft Stash, those stamps would have cost £14.99 for the set from Christine Griffiths, Michele had a code from a magazine and entered it on the Craft Stash website and got them both for the cost of postage, so £2.49 !! Not bad eh !!
The little Hunkydory 'Festive Furry Friends' collection was a prize that Michele won by simply commenting on a post of theirs on Facebook, so next time you see these giveaway's and think like me ...'that nobody ever wins' just have a go, it could be you!!
Thank you so much Michele for sharing your goodies with all of us.
Lynda has made her gorgeous Grandson Harry his very own 'The Night Before Christmas' book, the little images are so cute, each page of the story has been stamped and Lynda has coloured them beautifully, mounting them onto the blue layer really makes the verse 'pop'. I love this story, I hope you are the one that gets to read it to him on Christmas Eve, it's a lovely little tradition to start too.
Thank you so much for sharing Harry's lovely gift.
The second photo is of the rack of cards that Val has made, full of Christmas cards, Val you put us all to shame, we never hear you complaining about how many you have to do, thats an absolutely amazing achievement for 1 person, they all look different too, lots of variety and lots of different categories, (Mum & Dad, Sister, Friend etc). I bet the community rely on your cards because in all the times we have been to Spain we have never really seen greetings cards on sale. Do you find the Spanish buy them as well as British??
Thank you so much for sharing both Lynn's fabulous Santa and your incredible display of cards.
Margaret made this absolutely beautiful card for Granddaughter Gemma's birthday, (Sue's daughter).
I had forgotten about those papers Margaret, Sweet Sugarplum was one of my favourite colours, I was gutted when they retired it, a sweet, simple design that really works, I bet Gemma loved it too.
Thank you so much for sharing my lovely.
Cheryl made these fantastic Christmas Cracker style cards for her Nephews and Niece this Christmas, such an inspired design, I love that little Santa image peeking through the cracker.
I bet you could pop a gift card in there too for a little extra surprise.
A fantastic idea Cheryl thank you so much for inspiring us.
Another great line up of crafts, all very different, all very inspiring. Thank you to all of those that shared projects with us this week.
We didn't get much shopping done yesterday so that is on the Agenda today, we did get all the bits for their Advent Calendars though and filled them all, Becca messaged me to make sure that I didn't forget her, obviously I wouldn't, I can see that we will still be doing this when they are in their 40's!
We even got treats for Milo and Bella too, although we couldn't put them in a Calendar or they would find a way of pulling it down and polishing off 1 -25 in a few seconds. In fact Bella was so fast today that after Paul had freed the Corned Beef from its tin and popped it on a plate I turned to get mustard and tomatoes out of the fridge, turned back to see her licking the corned beef like a lollipop! So that has been bagged for cat treats and we ended up with peanut butter!
I hope that you all have a fun weekend, are any of you still Christmas shopping??
Janet....the postman delivered my parcel yesterday afternoon, thank you so much, I will share with you when I have finished them. xxx
Love and warm hugs
