1st of the Christmas Fayre's.

Well it came round far too quickly but it's the same every year! I always say that I will start earlier next year , but it never happens!
I worked right up til the last minute but I must say it was well worth it.

The 1st Christmas Fayre was yesterday and it went really well.
The things that rushed off the table were Calender fridge magnets , jewellery made from fimo , Mini photo albums/recipe books and small cards(ATC size) in packs of 3.
I hardly sold any gift tags, broaches or gift boxes.
They will come in handy for the next sale which is a week on saturday and I only need to restock on Welsh Christmas cards and Calender fridge magnets.

Here are some photo's of the table set up.

Iris on Canvas

This is my 1st every attempt at an altered canvas using distress inks,glimmer mists and grungepaper! Quite pleased with this but a lot of things need to be practised.
The picture is of Iris in her youth who was my Nan's sister.Sadly she is no longer with us.
I hope I would have made her proud of what I have achieved.

My Little Ray Of Sunshine!

This is a LO that I have created this evening and I have decided that this is my favourite LO so far!
I used Picasa 3 to blur the main picture and to make it black and white.Then I used cardstock, die-cuts and rubbons from The Katlin Collection Kit by Crate Paper.

Eventhough my Little girl is going through that moaning stage I take one look at this LO which reminds me that she is My Little Ray Of Sunshine! Her 1st go on a swing which she enjoyed so much makes me smile from ear to ear!!!

Craft Stamper ATC Swap

I have decided to have a go at making some more ATC's. This being my 1st attempt at actually being in an ATC swap. The ATC's are being sent to The Craft Stamper Magazine who hold a themed swap every month and this month the theme was Birds.

I used a swirl stamp from Dulcie Jackson using clear embossing powder and then inked it with yellow and blue.I then used the free bird stamp that came with the magazine this month and added accents with gel pens.I then added some beading to each corner.
The photo doesn't really capture the sparkle of the ATC's but you can see what I have done.
Really looking forward to receiving other ATC's in return to see what other people's interpretation of the theme.

Denzel Card. ( Dewdrop Craftz Challenge )

This is a card I have made for the Dewdrop Craftz Challenge.The challenge is to create something for the men! Pop over to the blog to find out more as anyone can take part.
This stamp is Denzel the Dog which I have purchased from Dewdrop Craftz which was shouting out for a kennel!
I wanted to make a little card which I could give to my husband just to remind him how much I love him " A little say I love you so much ".

Hopefully I have managed to create a cute card!!!

Clara Clock!

Here is my creation for Dewdrop Craftz Challenge.
The Clara Clock.

We had to come up with something which wasn't a card! This got me thinking for quite a while.............As been as my son is starting school in September I thought about making him a clock to help him learn the numbers and to recognise how to tell the time.
It is a long way off before he will be able to do that but we have to start somewhere!

Hopefully cute Clara can help him ( Clara is a stamp purchased from Dewdrop Craftz )

My 1st Attempt!

Well I read somewhere in a magazine that you should try something new every year.

So I saw that as a challenge and decided to have a go at making fashion jewellery!

This is one is the 1st necklace that I have made and now I am hooked and can't stop!

I have recycled an old chain and added some beads! As this was a present for my brother-in-laws wife I had to make a box for it to go in!

Here's to many evenings of making jewellery! I just have to figure out how I am going to incorporate it into scrapbooking etc.
