Christmas Candle Table Display

Hi Crafters, Just wanted to pop on some pics of my Christmas table centrepiece, now its not completely finished yet as I have to add some greenery around the bottom but I will be leaving that until the 23rd of December to keep it nice and fresh so I will take another picture of my centrepiece when it is complete. I made this using bits and bobs I had around the house, things all us crafters gather up, dried flowers, Christmas decorations, twine, string, ribbon and a little wooden heart I found in my stash which i distressed and stamped onto. How are your Christmas preparations coming along? I still have loads of shopping to do but I always get there in the end. Happy Crafting. x

Mocha Morning Christmas

Christmas cards 015
Hi Crafters, I’m sorry Its been a while from I’ve posted on my blog and thank you to those of you who have e mailed me to see if I’m still alive, the thing is I had been sent on a secret mission to the north pole to help out Santa lol, no truthfully I have been up to my ears in different projects that something had to give for a while and that had to be my blog. I have been crafting like crazy and have all the photo’s on my camera so over the next few days I will get them posted up, I also have a number of other crafty items I’ve been working on as its Christmas the crafting doesn’t just stop with cards, I’ve been making candles, cushion s, blankets, bags and tags etc some of the projects are still in the making but I’ll share them with you when I have them finished.
