Chrstmas Decorations

I have had a lovely day today and have spent most of it in my craft room pottering around doing this and that and finishing a few projects. So i have a lot to share with you today.

The three of us caught up a week or so ago to make a Labelcrew project here are some photos
Tracey's is on top and as Susan was the hostess she didn't get much time to make hers (to busy decorating a yummy pav) so the three pennants are hers and the blurry one on the bottom is mine.
I worked some more on mine at home, changing the ribbon and adding some buttons.

Cute cute cute.

here is what i played around with today and Andrew has just told me that i have a "glittery moustache"
oh well you get that, it is Christmas after all.
and here is another project from my Mouse Paper Scissors Give class and i am not giving this away

OK its meant to be an interchangeable theme where you just add a different photo but i wanted Christmas so even my backing is Christmas, i can always change the photo every Christmas.
Now here is a close up of the flowers as guess what i made these all by myself, so happy, they turned out really well, you just need a tea light candle and some polyester type slinky material, so just ignore the singe marks where i got a little close to the flame.

I think i need to distress the star a bit but otherwise i love it.

and tonight i may just do some hand stitching and try and get up to date with some of the stitch a longs i am involved in.

thanks for visiting

What gorgeous projects! I really love the paper flowers, they are stunning! I made some of those rosettes with the all folding just before Christmas, and I was really happy with them too. I love how you finished yours with the star and glitter. Have a happy and safe new year, I am already enjoying my holiday in Bali and we haven't even done anything yet! It is paradise here in the jungle! X
