Happy Christmas to all my lovely friends and family.

We hope that, at sooner rather than later, 2021 will be getting
back to normal, as we know it.

This was one of my projects for the Craft Fairs I never did.

I  will spend my spare time playing with my Needle Felting.

I already have 2 orders. One for a Hare and one for a fox!!
I really need a bit more practice first.

So please take care, stay safe and stay at home if you can.

Big hugs.

Two Of A Kind!

Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post..
Also, I have picked a name for my Hare!!
I couldn't decide, so I put all the names in a pot
and pulled one out , which is
His name was from Pauline at Cotnob Cards.
He does look more boyish I think. So thank you Pauline.
Two of my favourite cards I made this year.
.A little bit fiddly but worth it!!

They have been sent out to friends or family..

 The Flowers I made with Hobbycraft Glitter Card.
Thankfully no loose glitter.

Well not long to go now to the big day.
 A quiet one for us and we haven't really 
got presents under the tree. either.
I have already had mine last wee.k!!
So I bought Hubby a little something. well for both of us!!

A bit lost at the moment, as to what to do next!!
I have a problem, as I find it difficult to sit on my hands!!

A strange era we are living in.
Must look forward to next year getting back to normal.
Just hope the idiots who think it's just a bout of flu,
think again and stay home.. 
Wishful thinking I know!!.  I spoke to one last week!!
I can't put on here, what I really thought of this person.
but did tell them what I thought of them!!!
Made me feel a bit better but just went straight
over their head.!! As they didn't have a brain, there
was nothing to stop it!!

Right off to find something to do!!
Stay safe and well,
Big hugs,

A New Craft For Me!!!

I have wanted to have a go at Needle Felting for a while.
I started with a mouse and husband said it looked more
like a rat!!! 
So I left it for a few days and decided to try making a Hare. 
I have a clay one, that was a gift from a friend. 
So I used it as an idea.

This was the final result, after a few finishing touches,
along with a few stabbings of a finger!!

It's far from perfect but better than I hoped,
for a first attempt.
I now need a name, male or female for it.
So if you pop in, could you leave a name in your comment!!

I am not completely happy with the ears but 
I can see what I need to do next time.

I think this is going to be a new, addictive craft for me!!!
At least it's a 'tidy desk' craft and a clean one too, which is
great for me. I can be a bit messy if I am on a roll!!!

Thank you for finding the time to leave a message on my last post.
I love to read them and they are treasured, especially
in the climate we are going through at the moment.

We think my sister's Alzheimer's is more advanced than we perhaps thought.
It's harder for my Sister, who lives close to the 'Home'.
She has been her rock and her carer for some time.
I just wish I could be there. Not that we could get in the home.

Thanks for popping in and would love your feedback on my Hare.
Don't forget to add a name. Can't wait for them!!
Stay safe.
Big Hugs.

Favourite Christmas Quickies!!

I love blue and white cards for Christmas.
The card background is actually white!!
Why do camera's change colours?!!!

Spot the difference!!! 
I love making pretty, yet simple cards.
The Deer are from a die set I bought last Christmas.
I think it was on Amazon.
The trees are a very old stamp and I used
Broken China Distress Ink.  

I have posted all my cards and even got my tree and 
decs all done!! It certainly gives me a lift.

I really can't wait for the end of this year.
I have had so many sad happenings within my family
and friends. It's just one thing after another.

Thank you for your lovely messages on my last post
and they are all read and appreciated. 

Big hugs.

A Red & White Christmas.

Thank you for popping into my blog.
Sorry I haven't been around every day but been a bit tied up.

This is a quick post with one of my cards ready to be posted.
I will be doing that tomorrow.

The Poinsettia. is die cut with a set of dies I have had for years,
and I used some red glitter card from Hobbycraft. 
The sentiment was also die cut with the red glitter card,
and dropped shadow onto a piece of white pearl card.

I used a snowflake die to cut the aperture.
The backing paper is just from my stash.

Well it's 1. am and I want an early night for a change.

Hope you are all keeping safe and well and looking
forward to Wednesday here, as we will be able to go out again!!

Thanks for popping in and you know I treasure you comments.

Big hugs,

It's Christmas!! Well Nearly!!

I have just finished making my Christmas cards.
Along with 3 Birthdays cards.
I won't post the Christmas ones until the first
 week in December.

A word of warning!!
Don't post anything 1st class, expecting it to arrive
the following day. I posted a small box to my sister,.
and I also asked it to be signed for at the other end..
I posted it on Monday and it finally arrived on Friday!!

I was annoyed and concerned, that it had been lost,
So I had not only paid a lot more for the service that
wasn't working, I don't think I should have even been 
offered it!!

I love this little LOTV snowman and friends stamp. It comes out every year and coloured with Copics. 
The trees were cut from
Glitter card from Hobbycraft, I bought the Merry Christmas die on line. 

I think I am going to spend some lockdown hours, on my family scrapbook.
 I thought, for a bit of fun, I will make a small scrapbook,
with the photos of my different hairstyles I have had, from a child to now!! 
As I have been a hairdresser for 58 years
(and still cut my own hair and my husbands,) I have 
had some weird and hilarious styles through 
the 60's to the 90's!!

I have quite a lot of my items, I usually take to the Craft Fairs to sell, are now on Facebook in 
Marketplace and 3 other groups.
I am just trying to get some money for the Charity Care 
Homes I fund raise for.

Thank you for the lovely messages you left on my last post.
They were all read and appreciated. 
Stay safe in this awful time we find ourselves in.
Big hugs,

Blue and White

Thank you for your lovely messages on my last post.

This is one of my quick cards and using my favourite colours.

I made the Poinsettia with a card pack I bought in Hobbycraft. 
It's got a glitter effect and die cuts beautifully. 
I must admit I bought a pack of all the colours I liked!!
Well you just have too!!

I have also been putting some more of my makes
onto the Marketplace on Facebook.
They are also on 3 other groups sites.
I am trying to get some money for the 2 Charity
Care Homes I support. I do so miss the Craft Fairs.

I am on a roll of getting all my Christmas cards made.
Just over 40 of them and 4 birthday cards too. 

I hope to get them finished in a couple of days. 
Stay safe and well.

Big hugs,

Robin friends.

Thank you for your lovely messages on my last post.

Much appreciated and read each one!!

I have used the Robin stamps from Hobby Art for this card.

There are 3 different Robins but I only had space for 2.

I coloured them with Copics Pens. I fussy cut

 the hats and used Pinflair Snow-It glue and glitter

on the hats.

I had made 60 Christmas cards for the Care Home

that I fund raise for but I had to keep this one for myself!!

I delivered the cards there on Friday and they were very 

pleased to have them.

That is why I haven't been blogging more often lately.

Making 60 cards in a few weeks was going some!!

I can now start making my cards.

I am doing all my running around for the next 3 days!!

Then I will make the use of lockdown and get on with 

my cards. I have a few Birthday cards to make too.

Thanks for popping into my blog and always love 

to read your messages.

Stay safe in lockdown and just hope that everyone

will do the right thing for 4 weeks. 

Big hugs,

Merry Mauve!

Thank you for all your lovely messages on my last post.
You are all so kind.
As an update, my sister seems to be settling into the home,
She said to one of the carers that she really liked it there,
but won't be staying there for ever!! Bless!!

So this is one of my cards that I really enjoyed making.
I have had the stamp for a few years but only used it a couple of times.
I decided to use different colours for the baubles, just for a change.

I used an old Go Kreate Frilly 10 die, for the mat.
The text banner die, I bought online. 

The backing paper I have had for many years,
The front bauble I stamped twice and 3D it, to give it a  bit 
more shape. I used Copics to colour the image.

I then covered the baubles and the berries with Glossy Accents.

So it was a simple card to make and quite quick too.

Guess what? As I am in my sitting room, with my lap top 
on my lap, the rain is hammering down!! Now there's a change!!
I thought, when we moved here, nearly 5 years ago, partly because
this is supposed to be the driest area in the country!!
Where is the wettest? Answers on a postcard!! If not, on my post!!Lol!!

If this weather doesn't change soon, my feet will change into webbed  feet!!

I have put a few things I am selling, on my Facebook page and also onto
 Facebook Marketplace. A friend also asked if I would like to put them on
her Facebook group, Suffolk and Norfolk Crafters. 
So I am hoping that I could get some money, for the Charities I support. 

Back to my desk now, to finish my last 6 cards I have to make and then
I can take them to the Care Home I supply.  That will be 60 cards for them!! 

I have made a few for me but no where enough. Keeps the grey matter working!

Thank you again, for you lovely messages. 
They are all read and appreciated and very uplifting.

So please stay safe and well.
Big hugs,

Christmas Soon - Really!!!

I have finally  found a bit of time to actually do a post!!

First, I must welcome Di as a new follower. Hope you 
will enjoy what you see on my little blog.

I have been making Christmas cards to take to the Care Home
I fund raise for. I have so far made 42 but a few more to make yet!!

This is the one I have just finished.
It looks a bit bluer than it is!! The card is actually white
but the light was very poor this afternoon when I finished it.

We have had a very stressful and sad few weeks. 
My eldest sister has Alzheimer's and for her safety,
it was time for her to be looked after in a Care Home.

It was very hard for my other sister, who has helped and 
cared for her, for a long time now. 
She has been so kind to her and has to drive for 
around an hour, to get to her. 

It was very difficult to find a home but one was eventually 
found. The best thing was,, it was in walking distance 
from where my sister lives.
So she will be able to see her more often. and no more long drive. 
Enough to say, that it turned out to be a hell of a trip 
for my carer sister, to drive her to the home!!
I just wished I could have been there to help her. 
As I live over 200 miles away from there and 
the problem with the Covid-19, we wouldn't be able to.

We are sure she will settle in soon.
Alzheimer's is such a horrible illness and our mother had it too.

Thank you for taking time to stop by my blog and I 
appreciate all the lovely messages you leave me.
Stay safe and well.
Big hugs,

Home Sweet Home!!

Another heart and my favourite colour!!

A simple Clay Rose with Clay leaves I made. 
Also a few small flowers from Hobbycraft. 

The background was of course my crackle paint job!

The sentiment is a die, multi cut to make it a bit stronger.
Along with wooden bits from my stash. 
I am finding things that I have had for years and forgotten I had them!! 

Hope you are all home, safe from this awful weather.
Plenty of big trees down on the local news.
At least I don't have to water the garden!!

We are back to having central heating on!!
Crazy, when a few days ago we were baking in the sun!!

Stay safe and don't go buying hundreds of Loo Rolls!!!!
Didn't get that last time, so why them again?!!!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog
and leaving your lovely comments.

Have a lovely weekend and stay safe.

Big hugs,

A Swinging Fairy With Friends!!

This is my Swinging Fairy!! 
I made her with Air Dry Clay, also the Toadstools,
Snail and Caterpillar are the same clay

Sadly you cannot see her wings, as I made them with
a pretty sparkly Organza fabric.

I used felting wool for her hair, which I made into ringlets.
That's the hairdresser in me!!
Her swing I made with Balsa wood.

The circle is a wooden embroidery ring, 
covered with ribbon.

Getting used to this new format. Can't find the 
spelling check button yet!!

Hope it is sunny where you are. We are having
another sunny warm day and looks like 
not so windy, as the last few days.

Thank you for your lovely comments and
for taking the time to visit my blog.

Have a lovely weekend  and stay safe.

The Blues !!

I am pleased to say that my mojo has come back and
hope that it is here to stay!! Yipeeeeee!!

All I needed was a reason/purpose to make things.
Having got the Craft Market bookings, was all I needed.

If they all will be still happening, nobody knows.
However, all the time I think they will, is mentally 
important to me. 

So here is another MDF heart, made from my heart!! 
(Cheesy I know)!!

I had a lovely walk with a friend last Tuesday, through the 
local Marshes. 
We walked for just over 4 miles, with a coffee and a Sandwich
half way round! The weather was perfect and just warm enough
to enjoy it and not many people on the same route.

It's a shame that we cannot have the freedom, we have been
given the last few weeks.

It has been spoilt, by the people not conforming to the 
safety measures that were important to us all.

I saw 3 girls being interviewed on the TV, at a party.
They were asked why they were not conforming 
to the numbers that were allowed at a gathering.

Their reply really shocked me, which was
'We can't be bothered with all that. We want to have fun
and enjoy ourselves!!!'

I still cannot believe, that they have no cares for
their friends and families, getting ill and dying.

Well I have had my rant!! What do you think?

Enjoy the sun and stay safe.

Big hugs,

A Red Heart!!

Trying to get some different items made for the Craft Market next month.

I have used a Lili Of the Valley paper as the background.
The flowers are from Hobbycraft .

A simple make, just added a line of Gold Embossing 
powder to the edge of the heart, to finish it off.

Also added the sentiment, using an old stamp and 
Gold Embossing powder.

I just wish I had made things in all the spare time I had!!

Never mind, I didn't know there would be the chance 
of selling any of my items!!

So looking forward to the first one!!

Thanks for your lovely comments on my last post.

Big hugs,
