Christmas is finally here...........

Well it's been a busy year to say the least and I have finally got a little bit of time off to recharge the batteries.

I've had some ups and downs over the year, made some new friends and realised others are not quite as nice as they try to appear but in the whole scheme of things, I have nothing to complain about.

I make a New Year resolution every year to update my blog more regularly and every year I fail....but....I will be doing more crafting in 2012 so with that will be more blog posts.....maybe I might just manage to keep the blogging more frequent next year.

I used to love wrapping presents and would spend hours doing it but, as time is off the essence these days, I no longer manage to spend the time I did.  I made an exception for mum though and I'm looking forward to spending some time with her on Boxing is her basket of presents that I'm taking up there, all wrapped in Vintage style.....just like mum hee hee!

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone and I wish you all the best for 2012 xxxx

Tando Creative Challenges...week 2

This month the theme is Winter Festivals.

I used the reverse side of a canvas and covered the inner areas with Modroc, the bottom part has been been packed up to give a different shape and texture.

Embossing enamel....lots of.... has been used and then I finished off with some Mini Houses and the reindeer and sleigh.

There's a prize up for grabs every month and you don't even have to use Tando chippie.....if you do though, you get double to chance to win :o)
