Well it is coming up that time of year. Argggg some would say, and to be honest, when the first Christmas craft displays started showing themselves in the local shops in late August I had to immediately text everyone I knew to demonstrate my disgust at how early Christmas had started...However!!!!! I have decided there is too little time, when now in October, I have far too much to do! I declared this year there would be 'NO MORE' Handmade Christmas cards for anyone and so far all the card making items are still safely stashed away in their respective boxes. Don't let me fool you though, there is Christmas everywhere in my craft room!
This year I am branching out into giving crafty parties and workshops. After my very successful demo to the lovely WI from Dorchester I now have a party and another workshop booked. As Christmas is nearing the theme for these will be ..... (wait for it).....CHRISTMAS (surprised?).
Here are some of my creations, I will be making them into kits to buy so you can make them yourself or if your local you could always book a party and you and your friends can make some while having a glass of wine and friendly banter.
Here we have two handbag boxes, lidded box, exploding box and a treat pocket.
Here is a close up of the treat pocket. An easy little craft which can be used for teacher gifts, friend gifts, tree decorations or even advent calendars.
This is the exploding Box close up. Once the lid is removed the sides fall down to reveal a card and 3D Christmas tree.
Here are some of the creations the ladies at my last party created! We had a wonderful time and I was so impressed at all those creative juices flowing around!
Everyone got the chance to make a Handbag box with card and a treat pouch. There was also time for some tea and cake and a raffle! What a wonderful afternoon. Thank you ladies.
