What a busy day yesterday was!!

Hello there Peeps

My friend Mandy came up to my Craft Room yesterday and we sat like busy lickle beavers working away on Christmas crafting.  I was supposed to be making cards but I did not get round to making one!  However, I managed to finish the two pink mini books that were on my desk last week, and I all but finished the blue album too (had to leave it alone for stickles and enamel to dry without sticking my thumbs in them before they dried - oops!!). 

Once I finished those I started to think about the boxes I wanted to make.  Here is the first one....



A bit fiddly trying to get the acetate to stick and manhandle them but I really like these.  I think it would be better if I had the patience to let them dry properly before trying to fold them into shape!!!!  Patience Missey!!

Here is number 2........

I really like these.  I can see me making more of these for my stall and for Christmas presents for family.

But my favourine ones are these..........

I really enjoyed making these and who can resist a cracker?  I ended up cutting out another 5 of these (including two minature ones) once Mandy had left. 

So all in all, a good day was had by all, though Mandy was left very much to herself as I was trying to get as much done as I could.  I am so sorry Mandy if I neglected you but I know you did have fun cutting out various embellishments using my dies!!    And I did feed you with some lovely home made Brownies!!  Mmmmmnnnnnn! 

Right guys, off to finish decorating all the other boxes that I cut out last night.  Those Craft Stalls are getting closer at a galloping pace!! Yikes!!!

Hope you all had a productive weekend and are not having this yukkey weather that we are having in South Wales.
