Hi there, how's it going?
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Santa was good to you!
Apologies for not being around here much this last week but the crafting cupboard has been closed while I took a few days off.......I say this this, which really means I worked Christmas Eve, had Christmas day with the family and was back in on Boxing Day......the joys of working retail!
In between everything I feel as though I've been baking constantly.......4 dozen Christmas cookies, 3 dozen mince pies, 2 dozen chocolate eclairs, 1 tiramisu, a platter of chocolate dipped strawberries etc.etc. and a partridge in a pear tree!
Of course I feel blessed to have the luxury of enjoying all these things so no complaints here.......just not much time for crafting! This now means of course that I'm late with this weeks post for..........
Oh well, can't have everything!
It's Rosanne's turn to host this weeks challenge and she'd like to see anything Christmas.
I have a cute little project to share with you today as Santa was really good to me.......I must have been a very good girl this year because my long awaited gift arrived in the mail last week, courtesy of my hubby........my very own Silhouette Cameo!
Anyone that knows me is aware of how much I wanted (needed!) this thing, so it's probably a good form of self preservation on my hubby's part, cause he longer has to hear the pining, whining and general nagging!
Anyhow, at this point I'm not too sure what I'm doing with it but I thought I'd have a little play.......an experiment of sorts for this weeks project, so here goes:
I feel as though I've cheated which of course I have, because other than a little glue and the slightest effort, the machine did most of the work! I also now realize that it's not really Christmassy - more Wintery but......too late!
I added a little vellum behind the windows for effect and a touch of ribbon to the top, so I think it's pretty cute especially if you add a battery tea-light in there (if only I had one!).
That's about all for now, so head on over to the Little Red Wagon blog where you can check out even more Christmassy creations, just in case you haven't seen enough this season(lol).
I'll be back whenever I can steal a few more minutes of time, so till then have a wonderful weekend,
