I was in hobbycraft today and spotted some little buckets that were really cute and I wanted some so bought some and added some ribbon and some father christmas's and some snowmen I will put these on my tree this year with the chocolates in them.

In the pound shop I found a six pack of Jotters but wanted to make them a bit different here is one of them I will add pics of the others later.

I have made some more cards some for christmas and a couple of birthday cards as it is my god daughters birthday soon so I needed to make one for her and I received some lovely card toppers from a friend that were perfect for the birthday cards. The Christmas cards I made have been mainly from leftover bits I had in a box so I thought I would try and use them up, I also used chalks for the first time which were really easy to use and it was good to try something new.

Memory Wire Bracelets.

I have been making some memory wire wire bracelets for my girls for christmas, I have enjoyed making some and ended up making some for my friends daughters aswell.

I might make some more of these for christmas presents as they are quite easy to make.

Card Making

I decided to have a try at Card Making and really wasn't sure were to start so bought a couple of magazines and browsed the net a bit having a look at cards others have made and thinking I will never be able to do that, so thought I would start the easy way one of the magazines had some lovely papers in and I had some card blanks and spent some time playing around with them and made 2 cards, I am really pleased with them but please remeber I am a complete Novice!!!

Not so pleased with the secound one but hopefully they will only get better.

Pamper Cakes

After Making my first Pamper Cake I have been asked to make some more and have also donated one as a Prize in the Raffle at my son's Play school I think they more than deserve one as my son has started going to play school 3 days a week which means I have plenty of time to try out new craft ideas, They have had to work hard as he has additional needs so requires a one to one worker with him and  it needed to be someone who could use makaton so to me it was the least I could do. I made a couple of extra's for them to which they are going to try and sell and nearer christmas will be giving them some of my reindeers to.

This is the three I have made them,the green one has Simple products in and of course a box of continental chocolate in it, the Pink is Johnsons Products and Chocolates and the Purple is a mix of Dove and simple products and of course a box of chocolates.
You also have a Bath towel,a hand towel and a body puff in each Pamper cake.

Once they are finished they are wrapped in cellophane and finished of with a bow they do make a lovely Birthday Present or Christmas Present.
