Busy,busy,busy!!!!

Its full speed ahead at my house this week , halloween,birthday and christmas sale...so very excited...oh and bonfire night which is my favourite...I love the smell,the heat from the fire and all the noise and the sparklers.....
This is a wall hanging made using pieces that Sequin sent me, very much appreciated...she very kindly sent me the stockings, some paint and some glitter and this is what I made....a decorated fireplace complete with stockings and a letter to santa..



A few more cards for my sale...I love this christmas tree stamp as it is so versatile, you can take different bits out of it....but this time I used the whole thing and used it for decoupage..

Getting busier and busier now, so much that I want to do and so little time....I have my first christmas craft fair of the year on November 6th...hopefully I will be redy and it will go okay..

Here are some tree decorations, I have to put the ribbon on the stockings , I keep forgetting..



These are some more of my cards, they are only a small selection as I can't put them all on here..
























These are my christmas wall hangings, they are made with the poem "Twas the Night before Christmas" in mind...

Porcelain Button necklaces..

I saw these buttons being made by a young girl in Aberaeron, they are made of porcelain and I just had to buy them....I made them into chokers using tigertail and blue ceramic and lampwork beads...as they are quite heavy they sit nicely around the neck..


wall hangings..

I made these wall hangings for some challenges on the cb forum, I quite like making these, something different other than cards and atcs...this top one is based on the Thumbelina fairytale which both of my girls love.....the middle one is for a young girl featuring Tilda and the bottom one is for halloween of course...

Hang your stockings up....

Now that the christmas preparations for us crafters are well and truly under way, there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day at the moment.....I really have to get a move on and make loads of things...the trouble is I want to do everything but I suppose you have to draw the line somewhere....
These are what I was making last night, while watching Heroes on the telly....they aren't very big, they will look nice hung on the tree with sweets or a small gift in..











Another card made with the stencil paste and glitter...












These are a few atcs I have made, ready to send to some of my favourite people...
