WOYWW #447 - Crafty Christmas

Oh look what I got.


A diecut folder with refills and some Wildflower dies from Tim Holtz.










I made the ATC on Christmas Eve in the early hours inspired by a desk I saw here last week.





I made the bigger journal page on Christmas Day as somewhere to put my new diecuts.


I'd scavenged the Christmas cracker sparkly card to cut them from.



Oh and look who was on my desk before wrapping...

And I can't forget the Christmas Baubles I got from church too, Hope, Joy, Love and Faith.

Hope you all had a super Christmas.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

WOYWW #446 - Eventually

Here's my desk this morning empty and forlorn, after the day before where there was some activity of the altering kind.

I added a loop to a tea-towel.

I made short sleeves out of a top where I'd worn through the elbow and

I shortened the straps on my new party dress which I wore out last night.


Here are the cards I made to go in my spare envelopes last week.


Happy 
"rather late" WOYWW everyone.

WOYWW #445 - Christmas Crafting!

Yes, it happened this week. I needed to make some cards for my on-line craft groups SWAP for Christmas. The theme being Animals/Birds @ Christmas. So I did....

I used my Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight Die, some torn hand made papers and some old music score.


I inked lots of the edges and got very inky fingers in the process - yay!

I topped with copper stickles.






That's my desk in the week with all the bits ready to go.

And here are the 9 cards I made.



I used the miscut dies and bits and pieces left over to make the journal page as a reminder.

I also made a second penguin card.
So 11 cards made this year!

You might have noticed the card blanks on my desk. I got out any spare envelopes and made up card blanks to fit and these will be for my church friends.

As for the rest of the Christmas cards, I bought those back in January this year and have even written the ones which needed posting and posted them this week too, Go me!

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

WOYWW #444 - Bills, Scrapping, and Christmas



Still no Christmas crafting, just a few bills to pay and the glasses adorn my desk...



I did do some scrapping of some March photos which have been sitting pending on my desk for weeks!





And here's the Birthday Card I can now show you all.




So for my Christmas contributuion, I now have a tree and have decorated the house too.


Happy WOYWW Everyone.


PS This is rather late as I slept in somewhat, then had to race to get up and ready for Harp lesson, then a neighbour came round about cars and learner driver insurance advice, then I needed to take son's car on weekly run about, after a quick lunch, then neighbour came round to try son's car........ need I say more!
