It has been a long time since I've been around hasn't it? It wasn't really intended that way; just a combination of new job, full time hours; trying to work with the dreaded lurgy too and Christmas planning left very little time for crafting other than a little bit which I couldn't share until after Christmas. So, today I had finally a moment to myself and wandered myself off down to the studio for a little sorting out time.......oh how I had missed it.
I didn't have much time today so I was just clearing the decks ready but I thought I could share a couple of bits with you from my pre Christmas crafting. I didn't have time to make my crackers from scratch this year so had to content myself with tarting up some store bought ones. I wrapped each cracker with mesh and ribbon before adding a chipboard sled which I had coloured with Distress Ink (Gathered Twigs) and embossed with Faded Ivory Frantage powder.
I hope that you all had a good Christmas too. I had a lovely time, Both my daughters were home and I had 2 days off in a row; a real treat let me tell you LOL. I was spoiled with a delightful and quirky pile of gifts from the family. They know me so well. Loving my new Instamatic camera and all the other treats.
Take care everyone.
