Crafty stuff!

I've spent the last few weeks creating and making things for the school (where I worked as a TA for 27 years) Christmas Fair. I go back weekly now as a volunteer to help with art classes (of course!) These are a few of the projects I've been working on.

These are candy cane mice - made with foam, goggle eyes and pom pom noses and of course candy canes. An idea I adapted from one I found here
also ideas from here

These  are  2 absolutely brilliant blogs!
Chewy lollies - pink and flowery for the girls and green for the boys       
Friendship bracelets - keep one and give one to your best friend! 
Froggy bookmarks
Lovely flowery pencils

Elizabeth Shaw Mints made into flowers
And finally, cupcakes made using Sizzix diecut wrappers and filled with socks, hats, gloves,beanie hats and face cloths
I won't be at the Christmas Fair so I hope they all sell well and make lots of money for the school!!

December 7th!!!

2 birthdays and 1 anniversary to make cards for on December 7th  - so here they are!                                                                                  
The cupcake card is for Libbie - obviously! She makes such gorgeous cakes for everyone else I thought that I'd make her one - even though she can't eat it! She's on her 'wedding' diet anyway! The card was cut out on the Cricut.

This card is for a friend I worked with for over 20 years. Quite appropriate for an ex-music teacher                

                                              And finally .................... an anniversary card for my cousin and his wife who're celebrating 25 years of married bliss!
I'm loving this 3D flower die. Flowers are made with handmade paper and the tips of petals are tinted with inks. Ivy leaves are Nellie Snellen dies.
