The end of summer.

After weeks of lack of creativity due to numerous problems I thought I should pull myself together and get my head around the fact that christmas is almost upon us and I have a craft fair to do in 5 weeks time with very few Christmas goodies ready.
I am loving the wonderful new Humphrey Christmas CD from Crafters Companion. I already had the Decoupage sheets and had spent nights putting them together so now comes the fun part..making goodies but where to start????

I didn't want to make just cards as i find people just wont pay for them when they can get a box of 50 for £4.00 so I needed to do something different. There was a wonderful link on the Crafters Companion Face book page showing a card with tea lights inside so i thought i would give that a go. The one shown is larger than the original so that it can be used as a card as well as a gift and I then made a matching gift bag for it to go into and here are the results...

Tuesday 13th

Well had one of those days and decided against card making today so gave the jewellery making a go and must say I am rather pleased with the results.

Beaders Companion had the instructions/ idea on there web site so took my inspiration from that and just had fun. The blues and browns are lovely and for those friends going to the Ann Conroy Convention on 24 th September will be pleased to hear that i will be wearing the full set!

Crafter's Companion Blog - News, Views and Inspiration: Humphrey blog badge

Crafter's Companion Blog - News, Views and Inspiration: Humphrey blog badge: You may have heard the whisperings that there's a new Humphrey's Corner collection launching...well, all these whisperings are true and we'...


Well September us upon us.....did I sleep through summer????

I have just entered my 1st ever blog challenge with Crafters companion and the image I had to use was the wonderful Humphrey. After I had made the card using the lovely Decoupage my wonderful hubby came home with the craft magazine with the free Humphrey stamp on, only to discover that it was the same image as the one I had used for the challenge. Could this be a sign?????

I have also been selected as Crafters Companions member of the month for chuffed and very surprised .

I am eagerly awaiting the launch of the christmas Humphrey CD set and stamps, he is just so that I can start playing.
