Rain, cold and windy

I have only put my nose out of the door to get to the dustbin...... not a day for venturing far!!I bought a new (2nd hand) set of drawers for my craft room yesterday and now I need to re-organize a little (well, a lot!) as I can't move around lol....... G_Plan for just £20,00, I know I can easily fill the drawers........

Today I am showing you some of the gifts I made as presents, I bought a gift bag and started to make things to fill it, it may not have cost a fortune but it was filled with my own work and lots of love................
I made the boxes and then filled them with false teeth, mice, and spiders, this came about as Jules had mice a few weeks ago and was frightened of them running in her mouth overnight! as if--- the way she snores lol

Next to go in with the kind permission of Dianne from on the cards blog was buscuits with freebie sentiments from TLC
The buscuit tins were from Tesco, braid added top and bottom, picture from Arthurs clip-art coloured and glittered



Next was flowers made from a fab tutorial by Lee craftyloops, she is soooo clever with flowers! Bit of organzie from local market and off I went...Thank you Lee



These were made with organzie and brads from stash

Next came some flowers made by taking apart a lei and adding net petals between layers with a hot glue gun..., it's not called a hot glue gun for nothing... I had no skin left on my fingers lol





After that came little handbag dies I have had for ages, I stamped and glittered them and then added chocolate coins and pc generated sentiment




Then I watched Kirsy Allsop on TV and thought the hearts she made were so pretty.....so.... I made a total of 16 hearts, stars and trees at 45 mins each ...phew, as I said, made with love...lol and each one had a jingle bell attached!



There was also a fairy on a glass bauble,


filled with hugs

Next came the perfect man, I PC generated the sentiment, used a labels die with cello bag and forgot to take an after version all wrapped up!

but guess who had to eat the rest of the gingerbreads and will be on a diet in the next few days!!! lol



and a few papers from my Tesco buy.

and of course, a Christmas card......
hope you enjoyed looking at my tat!!! lol... well, it's not mine now heheheheh

Hi Tilly,

You have been busy, they all look brilliant, I wont use a hot gun for that reason I hate the thing, I used to have one in my shop years ago and its in the box of stuff left over and thats where its staying.
I wish you and your family a Very Happy New Year.
Margaret

Tilly I can't believe how much tat yopu put together for us all, and as if that wasn't enough talent, you start with Glass blowing......how can I compete with that, you will have to do a tute for me, I was the lucky recipient of alot of these wonderful creations and the glass angel, which will hang on my tree for years to come, always with a fond memory of you, red faced and breathless....thats what I call friendship.xxxx
