Off the Page with some Christmas Pressies.

I don't know if you are like me, but I really like giving more than I do receiving. I love to give presents that are useful, not expensive and personal and preferably made by me. Past Christmas gifts have been a lovely plate of home made slices and biscuits. Plants that I have propogated and put in a pot and fancied up with paper and ribbon. Hand towel embroidered etc. This year my presents will be square tissue boxes. The ideas for them are limitless. I found a Teddy Bear paper that was just right for a friend who is Teddy Bear mad. Birds , flowers, stamped images etc will adorn the many that I will be making for my friends this year along with some very snazzy book marks. So if you are a freind that usually get a little gift from me at Christmas you will be able to have a sneak preview.

Contact me if you would like to come to a workshop to learn to make some great card and gifts.You can send me your email address if you like and I will advise you when the next few workshops will be. Easy Peasy.

Just a bit of Glitz.

In my stash drawers I found some interesting things to add to some cards. Here are a couple I have made using some of it. You can always find something interesting in my craft drawers. I think the years of being a florist has something to do with that. Can't wait now to see what else I have hiding away. Interesting trinkets make interesting cards.
