House warming gift.

I have new neighbors and I thought I would make the a draft excluder as a nice house warming gift, the building we live in has alot of annoying drafts  I have two of them in my flat and I really do benefit from them I need to make one for the living room window as the curtains don't quite get rid of this one draft i have coming in!  I also made one for my wonderful neighbor @Nevilina_3 !!!

Ignore my messy floor, Craft Central is busy at the moment,  but I love the fabric i chose its 36 inches length ways and 7 inches wide  took me 20 minuets to make!

Hand made Christmas

So I have been crafting away like mad so I'm up to date with the very few weeks we have till Christmas, so far I have made some Bunting (and had some requests because people love it)  and some cute little Christmas trees, and now I have been asked to make an Angel so I'm going to have a mooch on the web and see if  I can make one, I don't know why I doubt myself, serves me right for saying I will defiantly make something without knowing if I can, without it looking like a 3 year old made it.

So here is the bunting took me aprox 4-5 hours to make 51 inches long (130cm)  I used Divine Twine from pur-ple which is currently my favorite ebay store (she sells really lovely buttons too go check her out) this was my first time at making bunting and I was really pleased with the result and im am going to make lots more with different fabrics and styles (:

I was going to make bunting out of these Christmas Trees but i prefer them as hanging decorations and with the beads and sequins i think the tree lights will refect off them beautifully and they will sparkle like jewels, Oh also the bunting is a substitute for tinsel I am not a fan of tinsel so i think it will look better (:  I have cross Stitched some gifts too so those wont be uploaded till after xmas, (trees are also a gift for someone and decorations for me :P)

So now i am ultra prepared all my material is cut and ready for me to stitch Merry Christmas Everyone, happy Crafting (:

Betty Boop inscense burner

I hand paint each one. The incense stick drops its hot ashes into the bottle, making it safer and less messy to burn. The bottles are portable so you can move them to any room in the house. They can be made in colors to match your decor, themed with your favorite character, team, driver, band etc.  To use, simply wedge the non-incense end of the stick into the provided key ring.  I attach these to each bottle with decorative beaded hemp. The hole I drill at the base of each one allows the air to flow, keeping the incense lit.  The smoke will escape the bottle into the air while the ash will stay neatly inside the bottle.

My Chincoteague

Another of my original paintings.  This one is called "My Chincoteague."  I used acrylic paint. It is painted on a piece of  plywood. I examine the wood prior to painting and see a picture in the grain. Then I follow the grain of the wood to bring my vision to life.  I hope you enjoy it :)

I hand paint each one. The incense stick drops its hot ashes into the bottle, making it safer and less messy to burn. The bottles are portable so you can move them to any room in the house. They can be made in colors to match your decor, themed with your favorite character, team, driver, band etc.  To use, simply wedge the non-incense end of the stick into the provided key ring.  I attach these to each bottle with decorative beaded hemp. Now the smoldering stick will be suspended, tip down, from the key ring at the top of the bottle.  The hole I drill at the base of each one allows the air to flow, keeping the incense lit.  The smoke will escape the bottle into the air while the ash will stay neatly inside the bottle.  This particular bottle was an order for a "girly-girl" who loves to shop.  Happy to report that she loved it!

Set My Heart on Fire

This necklace is made up of some fantastic 10mm Fire Agates, inter-spaced with white freshwater pearls and faceted carnelian beads. It closes with a 14k gold-filled toggle clasp.
I originally made it as a present for my mum, who when I gave it to her said she 'prefers blues' (which is funny, as most of her clothes are warm colours!).

Birthday Craft Book

This is a hound bound little booklet - using needle and thread, old printer paper, biros and sellotape.  The cover was made using a hand drawn 'wallpaper' design mounted on a recycled Christmas card!  The 'title' piece is just too layers of card - the blue and the text-piece layered on top of one another.  It's really easy and fun to make!  RECYCLE AND REUSE!! :-)
