Back as promised with a couple of things to share relative to the season (that are not cards), and something non Christmas too.
In-between my card making, baking and cake decorating I have been doing some other 'bits'.
First off at the beginning of the month I went to Samuel Taylor's and did a 'make and take' paper pine cone. I was thrilled with the result and so made some for friends and family to hang on their trees.
Next up the favours for the Christmas table this year (I made 6 altogether) these are from 'Whichcraft'. I covered them in my chosen papers (old Craftwork Cards......see I knew it would come in) to match my colour scheme (blue and silver), and have added a few after dinner mints........so if you are peeking at this and coming to dinner then you know what to expect......and if you are not, what you are missing out on!...... fairly quick and effective to do!
Something not so festive now, some sugar carnations a friend asked me to do for a cake she was making for her sons wedding. It is a while since I made some of these so I really enjoyed doing it.
Lastly I leave you with a picture I took in the craft store at Bents Garden Centre in Greater Manchester. It is a pillar! and I thought it was so novel.Those cotton reels were enormous!
Right that's it...well there is one more bit but that will have to wait till after Christmas or I may spoil it if the recipient has time to read my blog!..........so......
Hope you are all ready for Christmas now and able to find some relaxing time over the holidays. Thank you so much for your company along the way this year, I feel I have made some wonderful friends both near and far.
That just leaves me to wish each and everyone of my blogging buddies and those who visit me but do not make it known....a very
Thank you for stopping by....see you later
