Wednesday 20th November


I have spent the entire day making seven tote bags to pack all of the handmade gifts into, & then clearing up afterward!


A new design set for you this afternoon, with a twist. With these images I cut them from their original background & sat them prettily onto a layered panel, but otherwise the same format of four images each with a matching backing paper.

Nipped along to the High Street earlier as I needed the post office. Had a wonder while I was there & found some half wooden orbs in the Works that will be great for gnome noses! 


Anyhow, craft knives at the ready for this mirrored decoupage quad topper sheet, or you could simply skip the final intricate layer?


Finished off the bigger gnome yesterday - & totally love him - plus made another little one using macrame yarn - hard work!

I finally got out the sewing machine today, but only to have a play at making a larger gnome!


He turned out quite nice but as I use a styrofoam cone for the body & subsequently went on to fill his feet & legs with rice, he won't sit on the shelf. So I will unpick his bottom & replace the cone with rice, which will resolve that problem!


In an effort to clear out more files I have uploaded this decoupage as well as a matching background from the Chinese watercolour flowers file today, & I have the final pair to upload for you later in the week.

Sunday 17th November


Apart from the usual bonus sheet which I always upload alongside the newsletter on Sunday mornings, I have got into the habit of publishing a bunch of stuff directly to the pages on site then too, so watch out for those as you browse.


I have chosen this light cube template for this afternoons upload. It was designed to be used in conjunction with an electronic tea light, hence the windows in four aspects of the cube, but nothing preventing you from using it as a gift box for regular or scented tea light candles.

The final sheet from this set of six floral cameo decoupages for you this afternoon.


Been sorting out all of my bead supplies & obviously found some I had forgotten all about, so it will be more beading projects in the evenings next week!

Friday 15th November


Although I didn't actually design them specifically for the little Christmas bauble earrings I made, they fit inside these cute little triangular tent boxes beautifully.


But I am pretty sure that you will have tons of ideas about filling them, & you could even attach a string & hang them from the tree I guess? Or create an advent calendar perhaps?

Thursday 14th November


It seems ages since I did any paper crafting so I settled down for a few hours today. Not sure if I like either, though do prefer the greyish one?


Internet is seriously sluggish again this afternoon so I am off to upload the pictures before it crashes!


The next in this series of these vintage fashion decoupage duo's for you today.
