All I want for Christmas

All I want for Christmas... is to be rid of this cold. And some storage boxes. And a lottery win. And a fraggle. Okay, so I want a lot of things for Christmas, but then it's alright to dream every once in a while. So whilst I dream I shall create.

This week has seen a new lease of life this side of London. Whilst I've been knocking out a few Christmas prezzies, and the odd thing here and there just because I can, my Partner in Crime has been trying her hand at a few things new to her. I promise not to post the pic I was sent of her first plaque attempt - not because it isn't good, but simply because I know she wishes to polish her skills. So whilst I can't post that, I can post a couple of other piccys.

First on my list was to knock out some Christmas decs for my tree. I have hundreds of baubles (and yes, I mean hundreds) but a bauble is a bauble. I wanted something shiny that, once my tree goes up (scheduled for tomorrow) it will catch the lights. I don't know if they are gonna do the trick yet, but I can but try. Pardon the background, don't really do them justice, however once that tree is up, more photos me thinks.


Once that had been done I had an order in for a watch. Something in purple. I don't have any amethyst knocking about otherwise that would have been my first port of call, but I did have some matching beads. Set that with a heart watch, and hey presto. All I need to do now is fashion a gift box and done.


I whipped up a necklace and earring set... because I could...


Whilst I was doing that, Helen has been busy knocking out some more arrangements. Organised or what, this woman has Mothers Day in the bag already!



Which doesn't really cover the last week, but lets not get too carried away. Besides, I need some time left to go blog hopping over at Handmade Monday hosted by the talented Wendy.

Thanks for dropping by. I'm off to see what you've all been up to this last week!

  6. Love the colours on the watch bracelet. The beads really set off the heart watch or should it be the otherway around. Hugs Mrs A.
