Hi! Just a quick post, have a happy, safe Festivus. Thanks for reading, dropping in, commenting and lurking. Love you all. xo (.)(.)
I'm on holidays. Totally. Two weeks. Bloody awesome. I'm going to craft just for crafting/gifting sake, not for sale. A nice feeling.
This year my festive baking is cookies in a jar minus the nuts, as per Bakerella, cherry and cinnamon biscotti from Donna Hay Dec/Jan issue and cinnamon roasted almonds from Instructables. That cute deer graphic on the packaging below I pinched from Eat, Drink, Chic.
For the humbugs below I used butchers paper and Japanese Washi Masking Tape to decorate. These were our "crackers" for our work lunch. They had balloons, poppers, hats, chocolates and other small gifties in them. Always a hit with the crew, a small business of 7 people so thankfully pretty quick to put together.
Well I have made some stuff but no photos yet. So instead here's a list of tutorials/ideas from 2009 that I want to remember or try someday. Most of these have posted over at whipup this year. So, in no particular order:
Cluster of glee (the name of this one tickles me!)
Photos used in mosaic sourced from each of the links above.
Hi! Crafting is stalled but you know I have the usual GRAND holiday plans to sew a bucket load of quilt tops and make inroads to a bunch of other crafty goodness. I've already dobbed myself in to sew napkins and a table runner for Christmas lunch. Yeah I know, I can hear you all coughing *bullshit* behind your hands. If I get one quilt top done, I'll be a happy lady.
In the meantime, can I distract you with a dark, blurry video of Teddy's pre-walk performance? No? Too bad.
Back soon with, fingers cross, crafting content.
Hi! Counting down to the festive holiday, I don't know about you guys but I am looking forward to a break.
I've just posted a garland tutorial over at whipup, there are 6 templates to choose from and information on how to make your own festive garland like the one below.
Have a great Friday!
