ALL KINDS OF EVERYTHING...
It has been a busy week - I ask myself how I had time to go to work as the hours just seem to fill themselves up without much encouragement from me!
There has been lots of crafting from making items for the WI Christmas stall to yarnbombing, the usual stuff. I had a request for some personalised bunting for a new baby, the first I've made for goodness knows how long!
I know it looks staged but I always lay out the flags in order to then select the right trims, buttons etc etc. And Alffi is the Welsh spelling of Alfie, I haven't got it wrong (this time!)
I've had the blue bias binding for ages so it was nice to be able to use it, and the seaside theme colours just worked well. Hope the new parents like it!
My mate Kim came over a couple of days ago for some chat, coffee and crafting - we painted and glittered some pine cones to look like mini Christmas trees...there may have been more sparkly stuff on us rather than the cones *grin*
The Glitter Goddess! After they dried for a day, I hot glued them to some wood slices:
I'll stick some small beads on to look like decorations - they've cost nothing to make, apart from time, so any small profit will be good!
I'm doing some green ones too and will stick on brightly coloured beads as 'baubles'.
I've also become quite obsessed with angels!
Here's the tutorial on Youtube, they're very quick and easy to run up so I'll make some for the harbour yarnbombing as well. This is twinkly yarn which looks better in reality than the photo!
I'll leave you with a couple of photos sent me by a friend who'd been to the Simply Christmas expo at the NEC - it really tickled her and she thought I'd like it. Made me hoot so I thought I'd share with you - be warned though, there's nudey bits on show.....
The details are fantastic and so clever!Lolol - whoever made this was one clever person - who says crafting has to be boring eh?!!
Have fun this week and keep out of mischief - or go create some of your own, life really is too short to be serious all the time......
