A few projects I have been working on

I love Christmas, I love making Christmas things, so today I thought I would start by showing you a few of my projects I have made for this Christmas.

Firstly I did a printers tray as a gift. Using a Twiddleybitz printers tray as a base,  I made this little project, called In our home.
This is my 2nd printers tray project, using a Twiddleybitz printers tray, and lots and lots of little trinkets I found. 

  That's all for today.  I will have a few more projects up on the blog as we count down to Christmas.

Newsletter update for November

Hi all,
It has been a crazy few weeks, with the website being built, ugh....photographs taken (that part is okay) however time consuming, a couple of amazing classes, Christmas cards, and a gate book.
I have also been designing my new range with the help of my daughter, and just started designing a 2nd new range, so that is awesome. My labels have arrived so some of the product has been packaged, just awaiting the next lot of product to get here. I cleaned my studio. it is to hard to be creative in a mess that's for sure.

I hope you have joined us on face book, 1st prize has been given away, and I will be offering another prize up soon, so if you haven't joined yet, please do so.
