Felt hair clips and a little purse

No time to papercraft at the moment so I made a set of hair clips and a little purse in a spare 10 mins.

Felt Kitty

Not in the mood to papercraft so thought I would make a little felt kitty pin cushion.. inspired by a kitty I saw on Pinterest!
Actually, I think it looks more like  mouse!!

Felt Flower Brooch

I felt like making a brooch!!
Haven't had a play with felt for ages.. thought I would use the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die to cut these lovely flower shapes and see how they would look as a brooch.  Great excuse to get all the sewing stuff out!

So here it is!

A tag!

Apart from a bit of knitting this has been a craft free zone!  So much going on at the moment I've not had a minute.. and when I have tried to craft my mojo's disappeared (not good!).  I have made one little tag though..

Another scarf!

Had no real crafty time recently. Lots going on!  But did manage to make another scarf whilst watching TV!

Been Knitting!

Got this amazing wool - it's a mix between a popcorn and an eyelash... and it's so soft - it's dreamy!

Started this scarf last night and finished it tonight.. 3 balls.. easy to knit! and sooooo luxurious!!

Tagging along!

There's no such thing as waste paper!  Just to prove it I've been using up some scraps to make Christmas tags!
Great fun to make!
Now what does today hold?  Not exactly sure yet.. but probably some prep for an 8th birthday party which is very close on the horizon!

Not a wedding, not a new home...

I really love it when a "different" kind of card pops up.. this was one.. the brief was "not a wedding, and not a new home..." well, I had the new home card in my head but wanted to play on it a bit.. so here we are with the message making the crazy paving path to the front door.. walking into a new life..

I realise something is missing.  So after taking the pic I added a little love heart between the two names.. sets it off perfectly!

More Christmas!

Well, I'm hooked on Tim Holtz, distressing and Frantage today!!  Brilliant fun!
Carrying on the theme of the card below I've made some more.. some the same (which I've not photo'd) and these two.. variations.  The christmas tree idea is inspired by a card made by Kath (see the give away offer below for a link).

Time for tea now!

'tis the season

All this chilly weather has got me in the christmas spirit!  So I thought I would have a play with things that I've bought recently but not had a great deal of time to play with yet.  And here it is.. using the gorgeous Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die.
Loads of lovely products used on this..

I think I'll go and have some lunch now.. more time this afternoon to play some more!

Fantastic Give Away!

Good morning everyone! It's a cold, fresh and bright, morning here in West Lothian!  I think its the start of having to scrape ice from the car!  Brrr!   Still, I can't complain.  I'm sat here in my lovely warm craft room - still lots of boxes and things to pack away but getting there slowly (no point in rushing these things!) 
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know about a fantastic give away on the lovely Kath's blog! Click here to pop on over and have a look - Kath's blog is full of gorgeous and inspiring creations! ... and here's what you could win!
