Advent over the years

Crafting for advent has been really important for me in the last few years and when I was asked recently to post some of the different ideas I have had I looked up some of the archived photos!
It all started with these 5 x 5 drawers which I designed (before they became readily available and very popular) and I made them to sell in kit form with jokes and filling suggestions and also as the template. Over the years I have made and filled many of these!

New use for the blog!

Hello Everyone
I know it has been ages and ages since I posted last - the blog had become a chore and seemed to take me ages and ages to write. I have had a re-think and a chat with Jamie and I have decided that I would \'re-launch\' with a \'gallery style\' site, basically very little writing just more pictures mostly of the things I am currently creating and probably mostly in the \'crafts\' category. Some items will have been made for my personal use and some items I will happily make for others and personalise if you want.

Woven strip cards

Hopefully the lack of postings recently will be made up for by the number of photos in this one!
At the end of the last posting I popped in an all white card in a style I have called woven strips. As so often happens the inspiration came from a card in a magazine, but as usual there were elements I didn't like, not that I necessarily like the cards I make!

March bits 2013

It is just as well that the weather was so cold and grey during March because I have had a lot of cards and bits to make, so I thought that I would share some of them with you.

Wedding anniversaries

Well, I have returned and I know that it was the beginning of the year when I made my last posting and it is now nearly the end of February .... oops!!

One of the tasks I have been occupying my time with was very pleasureable. I was asked to make some cards for a couple's 70th wedding anniversary. I thought I would show you not only the cards I made for them but the cross stitched sampler I made when Les's Mum and Dad celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 1996.
