Handmade Christmas Decorations

Good morning

Christmas will be here before we know it, so time is precious and so is money! here are some decorations I made for the tree at the Craft Shop at Lady Green Garden Centre where I work, all made with paper. I have always enjoyed quilling so I had a go at using some Paper star paper from The Craft Shop online.

I think they have turned out ok.

Have a lovely Wednesday whatever you do.

Early Bird catches the worm

Morning all, up early looking forward to another day at work. Couple of things to sort out before I go - hence the early start, and still keeping to my promise to blog every day for seven days. Hope you all have a happy MmWwaA.

This is a frame I altered a couple of months ago for a lovely friend, the frame was from B&M discount stores and cost £3.99 I used some of my favorite Dylusions paints from a range designed exclusively for Art from the Heart by Dyan Reaveley to decorate it. I also used some of my favorite word stamps. I hope you like it.

Have a great Tuesday whatever you do

Monday madness

Hi all I still can not work out why blogger did not like my photo of my broaches, but that is sorted now.

Blogger has let me upload this lovely photo - YAY!!!! so hope I don't have any more problems as I have lots of things to show you this week.

This photo is of some swans at Martin Mere a couple of weeks ago. I love the gracefulness of Swans. It was a lovely Autumn afternoon spent with Anna & Robert my two lovely kids - they are both keen photographers with super cameras - I took this with my point and shoot cheep camera - and love the result. I hope you like them too.

Sunday Post (with photos sorry) all sorted

Almost did not make it to blog today. but hey ho I'm here and have some Knitting to show you. Hope you like these flower broaches they were fun to make, and a good way to use up odd bits of wool and buttons from my button box.

All sorted - don't ask me how - it just fixed itself - was thinking I was going a bit madder than I am - I tried all ways with the photo last night - so pleased the problem is now sorted.

7 days of blogging - I hope

I am going to try and blog each day now for the next 7 days.


Amy Shaw, Lemon Drizzle cake & Reindeer

Where I work in The Craft Shop at Lady Green Garden Centre, it was very busy today. We were lucky to have Amy Shaw in the shop, she came to do a day of Demos; she is lovely. Amy did some gorgeous Christmas cards using Woodware stamps and the crafty edger punches.” Something I must put on my Christmas list.” Mmmmm - Note to self (Must start using some of my craft purchases in the New Year!!!!!) Lemon Drizzle cake was the cake of the day,

it seemed to go down well.

The main shop was very busy too with the Grotto opening – Santa arrived with real reindeer , they were sooo cute and soft. The queue to see Santa was 2 hours at one point so we had a lot of Mums popping into the shop! While Dads and Nans stood in the queue.

Looking forward to a quiet Sunday.

We will remember them

(photo taken on Holy Island June 2011)

"When we bow our heads in reflection, we remember those who fought for our freedom during the two World Wars, but we also mourn and honour those who have lost their lives in more recent conflicts."
