Hi my name is Heather I have been making my own cards for about 5yrs now mainly for family and friends but have since progressed into taking orders. I have 2 grown up children both left home now I love watching create and craft for inspiration I also make my own jewellery and bag charms and knit albeit not very well lol I am willing to give almost anything a try x even though ive been on here for a couple of years now im still not very good at the technical stuff so if things disappear dont be surprised lol x

well not done much crafting lol as friday and saturday I babysat for my friends adorable 3 yr old twins Alfie and Hannah but did do some embossing and gilding today.
a good friend bought me some heart shaped decorations for my birthday and ive been trying to decide how to decorate them also I got some heart shapes and coasters from Event City  earlier in the year so decided today was the day to get them done.
I think I might put some pictures on the coasters and then clear embossing powder on top to protect them they look a bit plain as they are.







and here is the reason I havent done much crafting since thursday lol

crafting

Been busy today adapting a template off Fabulous Giftware by Katy Sue designs.
The box is fab but wasnt the right size for what I wanted and I thought maybe it could be made bigger so decided to try and I managed to enlarge it x
the original is the patterned one (6 sided)
the larger one is 8 sided and I used A3 card to make it





I have filled it with her xmas present of a lovely bright pink pig all in one hat/scarf/gloves as she loves Peppa Pig x

advent calender

Now it is safely in her hands I can share photos of the (crafters companion) advent calender I made for a very special friend I used Sara Davies pattern but decorated with Tatty Ted instead of The Snowman (Claire would have still have loved it as the Snowman but prefers Tatty)
She loved it and it made her smile even though she had had a terrible day x





each little drawer has some sweeties in and the big box on top has extras in x
I was really pleased with the way it turned out and will be making more xxx
