Plaques & Christmas Decorations

Phew, what a busy time everyone is having, but we crafters wouldn't have it any other way would we?
I thought I'd show you a few of the commissioned plaques I've been busy with......

Commissioned Plaques

 and some more Christmas Decorations......

Wooden Christmas Decorations

You may have already seen some of these over on my facebook page. My favourite is the Robin, do you have a favourite Tree Decoration that you use every year?

I've linked this post to Wendy's Handmade Monday over at Handmade Harbour, I do hope you can pop over as this is the last Handmade Monday of 2012, the next one will be in January 2013.

I'm sure I'll be posting again before Christmas but in case any of you are having a break from the blogging  I'd like to send you my best wishes for the festive season.

Spider or Spiderman

It's not long now till the Big Day.

Are you organised? 
                                    Have you done all your shopping? 
or are you like me and left everything until the last minute. 
Do you know what you are getting for everyone?       I don't.

Our grandson, after a visit to an Exotic Pets Show, wants a spider... I don't think I'll be getting him one of those!

WARNING...... Don't look at the next photo if you have an aversion to the eight legged hairy crawly things

That Hairy Thing called A Spider

I told you not to look, now get up off the floor and stop screaming.....

If a spider is not on the menu agenda then maybe a million legged creepy crawly thingy......

That Creepy Crawly Giant Millipede

Mmmm I don't think so. I think he should stick with his cute cuddly bunny Mr Fudge

The Cutie Mr Fudge

or maybe just admire his hero...... So what will it be, a spider or a Spiderman?


So, however your arrangements are coming along I hope all your decisions are easy ones

Take care

Handmade Monday

Hi folks, I wasn't here for last weeks Handmade Monday... like lots of you I've been extremely busy, after all there is something special going on and it's a busy time of year,  but unlike lots of you I haven't organised my time very well, it's got nothing to do with my husband having a few day's off work.... honestly. 

I've been doing lots of  cutting, sanding, painting and crafting, mostly personalised items, most of which I can't show you. Something to do with Christmas I think!

But I can show you lots of Fairy Doors being prepared in the Picto household,


Fairy Doors being prepared

anyone who knows me knows that I love painting Fairy Doors and this week I had one of the nicest pieces of feedback on my facebook page....

Facebook feedback
It's lovely to know that something I made is giving so much enjoyment but I believe that the magic is in the children.

I'm off to do a wizz around the blogs over at Handmade Harbour, it may take a while... it may even take me all week but I will get there.
