I'm going to make this my last post before Christmas, we are at my inlaws for lunch today and tomorrow will be spent preparing for the family to arrive for lunch with us on Christmas Day.
So I want to wish you all a very very Happy Christmas and thank you so much for following me and commenting. I really do appreciate every one of you for joining me on my crafty journey. Starting a blog is one of the best things I ever did as far as crafts are concerned. I have been dabbling in all kinds of art and craft since I was child, but writing a regular blog, 'meeting' all you lovely fellow crafters and visiting your blogs and seeing all your fabulous creations has helped me 'grow' in my own work and in confidence - so thank you!
Crafters are lovely people and being part of this creative community is just wonderful and long may we continue to 'grow' together!
Before I sign off with my Christmas Wishes, a few little 'makes' to share...
I meant to post this decorated bottle weeks ago and somehow forgot!
It's a bottle I had saved with the idea of decorating and decided to use a Dreamweaver Christmas Tree stencil with mica powders..it was a first time and a bit of an experiment, but I was fairly pleased with the result.
Below are a couple of close ups of my desk after I'd finished gift wrapping Friday..sorry the photos are so bad, but by the time I'd finished it was getting dark and yesterday, it just didn't get light!
I made the Holly tag, using a plain tag that already had the greeting printed on it: I inked the edges and cut out some holly from green card. I then inked the leaves with Pine Needles distress ink and added some Peeled Paint Stickles and gems.
I've made quite a few tags this year from the 2010 Spellbinders Ornament die and the poinsettia..this time I added a few beads and little bells when tying it to the present.
My last Christmas card of 2012, little House Mice enjoying the snow...
Wishing you all the Merriest of Christmases and a Very Happy New Year...hoping you get any crafty presents you've been hoping for too! I look forward to all your future creations!
I'll see you in a few days!
Love, Hugs and Very Best Wishes,
