A chance to nosey around crafters crafting spaces in an ever increasing blog hop via Julia's stamping-ground! Pop in to see for yourself.
Today two huge Woo Hoos from me!
First, welcome to Anastasia who winged in whilst I was away. So lovely to come home to such a treasure and all thanks to Ann B for making her to join the ever increasing flock of angels hovering over my fireplace. Thanks so much Ann, she is so beautifully made and I love her!
I also came home to find that I was lucky enough to win the Letraset Blog Candy prize on Darcy's blog Art-and-Sole. Thanks to both for the much appreciated treat of a set of Metallic Markers.
If anyone in the swap has not received their angel from me, please let me know, as I sent 15 winging off together about 3 weeks ago so I am hoping they have all landed safely in their new homes.
Not my usual work desk this week and it was a week of joy not "work".
I still managed some crafty time whilst I was away and, with the able help of ten tiny 3 year old fingers to administer sticky tape, we made some candy cane sledges and chocolate wrap snowmen and penguins, (info for making these in last post), for her friends and kindergarten teachers. I must say that Pingu, below, did get his wobbly eyes once we found them.
It was fun to fill these tiny little hats with treats and put them up in time for Advent.
I made a set of them 2 years ago for each of my daughters to put up for my grandees so this is their third time out.
The lovely weather managed to change to snow, so pretty, but it didn't last long as the sun soon shone again. Pity the fate of the poor snowman that was left in the garden!
We managed to consume some of these ginormous sausages at the Christmas markets as well as a drop or two of gluehwein.
I also managed to take over this blanket I had almost finished and wove in all my loose ends whilst there.
Twiglet and some others amongst you will remember these VIP special bears (Baxter and his Brother and stand in)...now lovingly known as Baxi & Bro.
Baxi is waiting patiently for me to make him a new red jumper which can be seen in progress. Look how his green one has shrunk.
I enjoyed face painting to order and the request from the Boss here was for a red and pink lion..... Raaaaahhhhh! Nah! I know, this cute little lion just couldn't be ferocious!There were lots of lovely Christmassy things, to see and enjoy around the town, such as these animated tableaus, for children, with a story narrated for each one at the push of a button.
I've lots more photos to share over the next few days of this special visit and the best is that they will all be over here again very soon along with the Brighton Belles & Co.
