Christmas cards

I got very motivated this weekend. Made half a dozen Christmas card plus finished off making an Advent 'Calendar'. We've also put up the Christmas tree (actually that should be trees - there are several, I think I have a Christmas addiction :-) )

I got the idea for these from here - Dan is a very talented man! Mine aren't in the same league as his but they were fun to make and a little bit different. Now that the boys are older traditional Advent Calendars aren't cool so hopefully these will be - at least the chocolate inside will keep them happy.
I also finished off some cards which need to be posted overseas - tomorrow!! Crikey - talk about
last minute!

Very pink card!

These are tonights make - it is my sisters birthday next week and unbelievably I have made the card and present already - ready to post tomorrow. The photos are not the best.

The bracelet is from a K&Co kit - it is the second one I have made. I've used photos of my sisters children for this - hope she likes it!

Mojo found - I'm back!

mI can't believe it has been nearly two months since I've blogged - where does the time go? Life has been hectic with the wind down of the school year - exams start for my oldest boy on Monday. Getting him to study is taking up all my time! The youngest has also just had exams so it has been all fun in our house - not!

Any way I made these flowers a few weeks ago - the instructions are here. Mine don't look nearly as good as the original - but I will be making more, so hopefully I'll get better. They are made from vellum, florists wire and florists tape - simple! They look really pretty all bunched
together in a vase.

Today H and I went to the local A&P show - lots of animals, lots of kids, lots of food, lots of smell!
The weather was fantastic - but very tired now. This is a photo of my favourite animal there- Highland Cattle

I've made a start on some christmassy type things - haven't got too much to show yet but my project at the moment includes this

Hopefully I'll finish it this weekend.......
