OK, OK, I know it isn't nearly Christmas but it's not that far off and I know someone not far from me (my sister) who is champing at the bit to get her Christmas tree set up and decorated.
A very foggy start to today and although I had hoped this meant a a sunny day, it wasn't. Fog always makes things sound so still and quiet - or perhaps it clogs up my ears and mists my glasses. The moisture fog creates can look lovely - it collects on spider's webs, branches, and makes some things look really pretty.
I took part in two Christmas fairs this week - one at a school which was very good. The second one was at a local village hall which was a little disappointing, very quiet for everyone involved, but gave me a great opportunity to make some news cards. I love startling, strong designs and as I had with me some black, silver and dark red glitter card I made the following cards which are my contribution to this week's Handmade Monday blog post:
I hope you like them - I love glitter card and red, black and silver are so stunning. I have one more to add, but need to tweak it a little so will post it later in the week.
One final pic is not card-related, but I couldn't resist including it in this week's post - while we were packing for our recent holiday, we left a suitcase on the floor of the lounge. Daisy, followed quickly by Jazz, decided it was a new comfy place to sleep - the caption for the pic (not a very good one) I feel is 'Don't worry Daisy, if we keep our eyes closed they won't see us and we can go on holiday with them'.
A very busy week ahead - three events so lots of new stock needed, plus sorting out and re-stocking my wall at Bourne Mill and I want to get to the WI Market on Thursday morning to hopefully sell my cards in the future, as I missed it last week. Don't forget to check out my Where Am I section and if you are able to come along to any of the events I am taking part in, it would be great to see you.
Have a good week and don't forget to visit the other blogs taking part in Handmade Monday.
