A couple of gifts


It seems everyone is losing followers on their blogs since they allegedly removed everyone who signed in from an account other than Google. Unfortunately some people who have signed in with Google seem to have been taken off blogs they follow too. Of course unless you can remember every blog you follow you won't know that so if my blog isn't on your reading list please check if you are still following me. So today I thought I would share a couple of gifts I made recently with you. The first is a 150mm plaque. I used a Hobby House Wee topper, Spelbinders dies, flowers from Wild Orchid and some ribbon from stash. I added a wooden butterfly coloured with a dark pink Wink of Stella pen.


These pen holders from the MDF Man have been very popular. I will definitely be stocking up on more when I go to Ally Pally in April. Hubby paints them and I covered the sides with paper and added lace, seam binding, flowers and pins. 

I am glad I scheduled my posts for the whole of January before I went on holiday. I plan to sort out my new craft stash, get some more ironing done and start crafting today.
