But, I do have a few little snippets of what I've been up to in the crafting arena recently. I've been getting very busy with my screen printing kit, my sewing machine, and on ebay (200 used Christmas postage stamps for £2 - win!)
Here's a few of the craft projects I've been working on for Christmas.
Gifts for family and friends:
|Padded place mats and coasters for my nan! Fabric from Hobbycraft|
|Hand printed 'doggy bag' for my mum|
|Cute mini gift idea for secret santa or to take to parties|
And guess what? I've even finished my wrapping! I like to have a wrapping theme each year - and this year I chose posted parcels. I found 200 used Christmas stamps on ebay for £2 (my first ebay win - I was beyond excited). They arrived on paper, so I trimmed around the edges with patterned scissors and glued them to my pressies wrapped in brown paper.
Then I stamped over them with French rubber postage stamps and got out the old baker's twine again.
What do you think?!
After all this crafting, I think I deserve a break, don't you?!
Oh go on then...
