I felt it was time! Please continue to post your thrilling work in here, instead of the other thread which was a bit long. Thanks all.

Here is one I made yesterday using papers printed off a new CD set I received earlier in the week, it has some glorious papers on it. One I made a couple of days ago has been sent already without being scanned as my scanner was playing up.

Great card, Sue!

I'm pleased with my day. I started it by finishing another mini album - this time with photos taken in Paris.

Then a friend called round and showed me how to insert a zip. I had a go and ended up making a little make-up bag.

After that there was no stopping me and I finally had a go at making one of those pencil rolls that you see doing the rounds of the blogs online. I am delighted to have managed to complete something that doesn't look too bad, even if I say so myself.

I filled it with watercolour pencils and a koi brush, and intend giving it to my daughter as a christmas present.



Other shots of the roll and the other stuff I made can be seen on my blog, here.

A few years ago, I made two "handbags" on plastic canvas and with teeny tiny seed beads, one for myself and one for a good friend. Well i have been keeping my fingers busy, as you can see! Four of the handbags are for good friends while the other four are for myself

Yes, ren, a longer version woks great for knitting needles. (I have one for my bamboo needles, which I bought oh, 15-20 years ago, when the idea was new and novel).

Jane, they are fantastic! I can't imagine ever doing anything so fiddly as making bead-bags! Well done girl!

I've just made four cards tonight, all the same. They are about .5cm deep as there is a pocket inside in which I placed some stamped images which I am exchanging on another forum.

They're quite simple, but I quite like them.



Here's (sort of) what it looks like inside.

And to complete the series, a milk-carton-style box, which I will fill with sweets and small treats for my nieces big sisters. No jealousy that way

Wow! Everybody has been very busy with creating wonderful things.

Admiring all these awesome products gets me in the mood for crafting. Thank you! - I've been missing that feeling for quite a while

Yes indeed. This kit is called "Eskimo Kisses", not very PC, but certainly cute.

Thanks for confirming that. I ordered the BG Eskimo Kisses range last week and it should be delivered tomorrow. I thought that was from the range. It really is cute, isn't it?

Looking forward to seeing some cards from you soon, Denni

Here's something I've been dying to do for some years now!


A masquerade mask on Plastic canvas embroidered with rainbow coloured cottens and feathers. It is supposed to have a knitting needle/stick at the side with ribbons twirled around it - but thats a work in progress!
Tomorrow I will start showing some of my christmas tree decorations

Here is the first batch of embroideries. If you look really carefully you we see the Teddy is embroidered with Elliot, and Santa, to the left of it, has William. I wonder who they could be for?

Here's a box I made following a (live) online tutorial tonight. I intend using it to store some of my swapped stamped images in.

Love the box, and I'm in awe of the needlework. Patience like that I don't have!

For a change, here's a layout that I did a while ago at a scrapbooking weekend retreat. We were given a diagram and challenged to do a layout following it. I was happy with this for the simple reason that I made use of paper I already had, and photos from a file started for a course (all about organising one's photos) that I took last spring. Only thing I bought was the lettering. Didn't win anything, but didn't expect to
