This is the quilt my mom made for me recently, believe it or not it was the first one she ever made.



Every frog has it's own little heart shaped button eyes.
BTW, that is Alex standing behind it holding it up, he has gotten so tall.

I love the quilt - that is one thing I've never done!


Those cards are for my special little great-nephews

I'm obsessed with frogs and my mommy loves me.

Looking at all these beautiful things makes me want to create, I'll have to think about what to do.

Next up ...


The first one is a decoupage card, of Raymond Briggs "The Snowman", while the other is a recycled Christmas Card (a standard card which someone sent us last year), which I liked the sepia tones. The bronze embossed paper finishs it off.

Two fairly simple cards - the first has a "coat" of embossed paper, the other, seeming it was an embossed card, just needed a small embellishment on it

I am currently making some 'glitzy' Christmas cards. My local garden centre has some gorgeous Christmas ribbons, fairly wide (2.5 inches or just over 6cms), on special offer, two for the price of one and they have standardised the price of a roll (ten yards) to £6 even though some are priced at £10 and some at £6. I have also bought glitter paper/card, metallic card, glittered large snowflakes etc.

This one uses one of the large snowflakes.

I like them Jane.

Do you have your own embossing machine for your paper?

No, Sue. Me and Mum do buy some sometimes from craft shops, but I think you sent me that particular paper last year

Ok, we can't take credit for the advent calendars themselves, but we brightened them up with felt and ribbons. All ready to be stuffed with treats for two little somebodies

I am going to break the rules here, sorry mods! This is one card but I need to show two photos in order to show the card. It is for my cousin who lives here in Jersey, she is 'cat mad', she loves any cat, domestic or big cats. There are fourteen surfaces, all different, seven domestic and seven of big cats.

Needless to say it weighs a ton.
