New Year of Blogging

It's a Happy New Year to all, and I don't usually make 'new year resolutions' but this time I thought I would, and it is to try and enter more 'blog candy's' and hopefully show more of our work....so let's wait and see how well that works out?!?!?. Pop back tomorrow and see if we've made that fresh start to 2010. Lol.
Have fun. Jeanette & Michelle

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Well where has the time gone. Both myself and mum have been busy beavering away making books, cards, bags and getting ready for Christmas. We've also been doing lots of school Fayre's this year and mum doing Wimborne Market, that we haven't had the chance to update our blog. So I decided to have break from all the card making (yes still making my own cards for friends and family) and present wrapping to put some items we've been making over the last month.

We like to take this opportunity to say Thank You to everyone who visits our blog and to all our customers we've had at various events this year and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

What great socks

When mum went to Las Vegas back in September, she brought me home a gift. These socks. How cool are these! Scrapbooking Girl Socks. Never seen anything like this before so just had to share with you all. Thank You Mum. xxx

Flower Jute Bags

I made a bag recently like the one's above in the pinks and red for my nappy gift bag gift set and done a local Pre-school Christmas fayre where a lovely lady brought the bag own its own for a gift. This spurred me on to make some more like it. I'd had lots of lovely comments from people to say how lovely they were and I am now making them to sell on their own. But mum also loved them so much she asked me to make one for a friend of hers as a Christmas present. I also decided to make some for both mine and Blue's nan's for Christmas presents too. Here are the finished production of bags. I hope you like them. Michelle. xx

Harley's creative moments

Today Harley has had a very busy day. This morning Mummy, Nanny and Little Brother Lucas went and watch Harley in his first Nativity play at his pre-school. He done very well joining in with the singing and actions to the songs and sat beautifully. Mummy's very proud of you Harley. This afternoon we went to the "Big Tesco" as Harley says to buy some ingredients for our magical reindeer dust. We made some party bags for our local tots group we go to on a Tuesday afternoon, as its their Christmas party tomorrow. Our bags are made up of some magical reindeer dust and a Christmas shaped biscuit made by Harley this afternoon. We were lucky to get some lovely decorated bags from our friend Janette. Thank you Janette.

At the beginning of December myself and Harley started to get the Christmas spirit going in our house. We been busy making cards for the family. I won't show Harley's as it will spoil the surprise for nanny. But will put on at later date for you all to see. We've also been colouring Christmas pictures and have made window decorations. (This one is for you Vicky, take you back down memory lane) Harley painted a lovely Christmas tree and stuck lots of decoations he coloured and lots of glitter, whilst mummy painted a murual of Bob the Builder and Iggle Piggle (from in the night garden). We hope you like our creations. Harley and Michelle. xx

Christmas Cards

I have been busy beavering away making Christmas cards for the family and some friends last week. Alot I've had to post. Still got loads more to make and running out of time rapidly. The images are from several digital sets I brought earlier this year. And have loved making cards with these this year. Some of the papers are left over from last year and alot I've used from a garage sale. I'm addicted to using ribbon at the moment. They been making a lovely finishing touch to the cards I've made.

These cards I made for Blue's nan's. I used my nestabilities for these. The stickers are actually from an old craft magazine from last year. Found them whilst having a sort out. The papers and ribbon are from Janette's garage sale. I love these papers and I'm very pleased with how they turned out.

This card was for Blue's parents. I love these images that I brought ealier this year. I've used papers I got from a friend's garage sale (Janette). Hope you like. Michelle. xx
