Christmas Projects

I’ve finally managed to get round to taking photos of my Christmas projects for this year. Thanks to the Open University course being over pretty early I have made a good start already (which may come in handy with the uncertainty of the postal strikes!) so hopefully won’t spend December in a tizzy because nothing is finished.

For the last few years I have made little calendars for friends and try to come up with a different idea every year. The one time I didn’t send them one, I got complaints! This year I have made little file folders for them

The colour scheme is a bit brighter than usual for me but I had the set of papers and card to match so just went with it. I’ve also made a little handbag/desk calendar for my Mum using bazzill and Basic Grey papers.

My biggest project of the year has been to complete the wall hanger which was part of the Cosmo Cricket TSV on QVC for my friend who sadly lost her cat a couple of months ago. I hope she will like what I’ve done as a reminder of her girl.

Other than that the trip to Capture The Magic was very fruitful as I managed to get my hands on the WRMK magnetic circle cutter which I’ve been hunting for everywhere! I already had the mat and other bits from another QVC TSV so just needed the cutter. Let’s hope Santa remembers where he’s put it!!

You have been busy. I love your blog template. I;ve been trying to get a pretty one but I'm not having much luck. Hopefully that's something we'll learn from Shimelle.

It took me absolutely ages to find this one after going through lots and lots.

As for being organised...there's a first time for everything! The combination of no more studying and a broken elbow during the summer means I've been storing up my inspiration until now!
