What a wonderful Christmas (apart from us both being sick-me bronchitis my OH stinking cold)-the CB Forum Secret Santa gift was torn open to reveal some lovely gifts. I love the ribbons and the brads and I havent even seen the covered chip board letters before-I cannot wait to try them out on my scrapbook.
I got some many nice pressies, but am too busy using them-so I will post some piccies later.
Happy christmas everone

I'm liking the shaky beaded trees (even if i do say so myself).
This is a set I made for my sister-in-law's birthday. Its ear-rings, bracelet and a handbag charm with Haematite beads. I made the box with my crafters companion which really speeds things up.
Lil Pidge (back to my nest to snuffle and cough in a pathetic way!)
Also in a moment of what can only be described as total muppetry I decided that the event journal I spent some months making for my mums combined Christmas/Birthday pressie was not good enough and decided to make a new one! What the hell I was thinking I don't know-by the end of the project I was wishing I just bought her the new Enya CD! The idea is that there are 12 double pages, one for each month, and each month has key birthdays/anniversaries detailed with lots of space to keep adding more. On the opposite page is an envelope containg some handmade cards ready for the appropriate event-all ready in one easy folder.
Well, I did say it was a mammoth task!
I think that's enough for a bit-I need to take some more anti-biotics and have a bit of a lie down (I had no idea that bronchitis took it out of you so much-this sucks!).
