Merry Christmas.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.
I hope you all have an amazing time with your Family and friends!
My son come home today and this is what he bought for me.He said "Ma as soon as I saw this I knew you would love it."

Yes it is a Christmas wreath made entirley with sweeties in wrappers.With a few gold baubles and some red berries and a Father Christmas that lights up. A lady who lives in Cyprus, by the name of Koulla made it, and I think it is so sweet.
That is it, for now, going to pop my pork into the oven, and tomorrow I will tackle that bird.
Remember, be good!

It is almost Christmas!

Hi there my dear Friends.
Or should I say ho ho ho?
I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy festive season, and to also show you what I made out of a tiny pine-cone the night before my daughter gave birth to my beautiful Grand-son!

I was extremely distracted, but nevertheless this is the result a tiny pine -elf....I saw the idea on facebook..I used a bit of batting wrapped in a scrap left from the baby's new swaddling blankets for the face,I embroidered the eyes and mouth (had no patience to get the eyes the same!  So he looks like he is winking!)
The hat is made of felt decorated with twine and Stickles...a little bell is on the tip. And ,the scarf is a strip of paper, (I am a paper addict after all!)decorated with spots of Stickles.
May the spirit of Christ shine in your hearts.
God Bless.

Tag 9 and Tag 11 (2011)

Good Evening Scrapbooking Pals.
I spent the evening yestreday making Tag 9 and Tag 11...and I have just completed Tag will have to wait till tomorrow for that as I want to photograph it in the daylight
Anyway I  loved the technique that was used for Tag 9, as I say in the video,my whole point of doing these tags was to experience new techniques,so I improvised with what I have on hand, as a result my tags are not the same as Tims'
Tag 9
Tag 11
Tag 11 was fun to make and it was the first time that I used Glossy paper,and I loved the result,you should try it.Oh yes the little leaves are shrink plastic that was covered with UTEE and heated with the heat gun...they look like mother of pearl.
Here is the video too.
Keep well,
Love Zeffy.

Hi there...
I wonder if anybody will read this...if you are all as busy as I am  then you are all frantically rushing around getting stuff done.
Here are  3 more tags...please note Miss Snowie was Tag 4....not 5 as I said!
 For more details check video at the end of this post...My voice goes all funny again and dissapears for a while....
Tag 5...loved this one!!
Tag 6
Tag 7
Here is my video.
 It wish you all a very good week-end....
This is the 10th full moon of my daughters' pregnancy...and as my good old Gran used to say "A woman needs to see 10 full moons before she gives birth" So we are waiting....

Tag 4 (2011)Miss Snowie

This is my take on Tims' tag.
I drew and cut out my snowman out of grunge board,painted "her"  decided she is a she...after decorating het hat!
the only colour distress that that I had that would suit this tag was"Dusty Concord" ...remember I also do not have "Picket Fence"
So I resorted to putting some acrylic paint diluted in a little water on my mat....a swipe of Broken China Distress ink and some Dusty Concorde distress stain....I sprayed my Tag with some homemade "glimmer mist" made out of Antique linen re-inker....I was happy with the result......I also stamped my snowflake with Dusty how they turn should try it....unfortunately my swirl was inked with white chalk ink......boring!!!

As you can see I used my Scrollwork  on the edge die...and I used grunge board numbers..I will tell you what I did to my poor numbers when I do a video...lets just say they were "Processed!"
Tag No 5 is looking good...of course I do not have reflections I made a plan....again.
Keep crafting......craftiness required for these tags!!

Shimelles' Journal you Christmas...doing that this year...
12 days of Christmas Photography class.....doing that too....No time for links today...
And Miss Arts Papercrafting Take 2 doing that too...the following L.O. was inspired byNicole Nowosad's 10 miute doing a L.O. in 10 minutes! Impossible!!! So I gave myself half an hour.This is the result.
Sassafras paper masked and misted then stamped...Bo Bunny"Welcome Home" paper (how appropriate!) torn and inked ,Petaloo flowers and packaging.
So Gals have a good month...hope to get back to you again today with more goodies..
