We wish you a Merry Christmas!!

This is a quick post.

I would like to thank
all my lovely blogging friends from around the world,
for taking time in their busy lives,
to visit my blog and to leave me treasured messages.

I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a 
prosperous, healthy, peaceful  2019.

I know this picture is not Christmas related,
it is a 'Home' sign, where lots of us will be for the holiday.

It sold on it's first outing!!

All the flowers are hand made, which I really love doing.
So more rewarding than sticking my bought ones on!

Thank you so much.

Big hugs to you all,

This and That!!

Firstly, I would love to thank Julie,
who joined my blog as a follower.
I hope you enjoy what you see.

Just another quick post but lots of pictures!

I had been searching for this Woodware stamp
for ages. I found it a few weeks ago in a Craft Shop,
Noble Crafts in Great Yarmouth.
It was in a clearance box too!!

I can remember playing with this stamp
on a Demo Day at The Craft Barn.
I was in the studio with Chris Dark (an amazing artist)
over the other side of the room.

We were having great fun with the customers.
She saw this card and shouted over to me
'How on earth did you do that!!'

So this time I made 3 with different colours!
I can still hear her!!

Christmas has finally arrived here!!

It took me 41/2 hours to do all the decs.
How long does it take you!!

The little Santa on the floor, I made for my Daughter's first
 Christmas. She was 45 on the 30th November!!

The tree!!

These I made separately but they go quite well together.

Well that was supposed to be a quick post!!

Thanks for popping in and I treasure all your
lovely messages.

Big hugs,

from Noble Crafts Shop in Great Yarmouth.

The theme for this challenge is 
Anything Goes.
So you can enter any of your beautiful cards you have made.

I am now going to finish making mine.

I have just completed selling at 22 Craft Fairs

In November I did 7 in 4 weeks!!
I wonder why I am shattered!! All these 6am starts
in the mornings might have something to do with it!!

So I wish all my lovely blog friends a


Thank you for taking some of your precious time,

A Nutty Angel....Or Two or Three!!

A very quick post today.
I was at a Christmas Craft Fair yesterday, in 
The John Grant School in Caister. 

It was only 4 hours but I came home with 
2 of my big storage boxes totally empty!!!

So a big thank you to Lyn, who with her team, put 
on an amazing day.

All the items below were just a few of the small
things that went.

This is my Nutty Angels decoration.
It is a real nut that I have had for years.
I have one myself but wanted to decorate this one,
in a better way than I have mine. So made the clay angels.
I then added the greenery and ribbons.

This is my Snowball Bauble!!
Made and sold loads of them. The leaves I cut from felt.
Just got 2 left.

This hanger I sold at the last Craft Fair.

I made loads of these baubles.
This was a medium size. Made with 80 pieces
of fabric and double that of sequin pins.
The big ones had over 120
pieces of fabric and over 240 pins!!!

Then added cones, berries, leaves and ribbons.

This is a small one and this was sold but have 3 small ones left.

I only have 2 small and I large Snow Family scenes left.

I am now going back to my desk to finish making 
a couple of unicorn boxes and a Unicorn plaque.
I make the Unicorns with clay.
They all flew away today!!

Then I have to paint a watercolour picture of the sea and a beach,
on a plaque. Sold out of them today!

Thank you for finding time to pop in and leave me a message.
It is so busy for us crafters at this time of year.

Big hugs,
