Altered Items

Well, the Christmas Fair didnt go as planned :o( but at least Im selling my stuff, slowly but it's going, like every Christmas :o)

This year Im planning on taking a break just before and after Christmas from all the mayhem ! I am not even making x-mas biccies, after nearly 20 years or making them every year ! I'll bake some cakes instead, quicker (non christmas batter though!). I really need a break from crafting, I want to spend those days with my family & friends...and already have some activities lined up.

For the Teachers this year, they're not getting a fully handmade present, only the outside will be handmade LOL !. And this is it:

A friend asked me if I could Alter some notebooks for her to give as presents:

I have to admit that Altered Art is my number one Favourite...dunno why, but to see the final product gives me great satisfaction ! (more than cardmaking !)

Getting ready for the Christmas Fair !

Hi there !! it was my hubbie's B-day in October, so I had to put together a card for him, I was quite busy, so I came up with this:

Well, Im glad to say that I'm finally looking forward to Sunday's Charity Christmas Fair! Im still not finished, but I'm getting there. Besides some "all ocassions" cards, I also made x-mas cards, fridge magnet calendars where you add your own photo, altered diaries, altered notes mini books and some layouts in canvas, here are some samples:

Im sending this one to my parents for X-mas, along with the fridge calendar with the photo

Hope to do well :o)

If you still haven't started X-mas shopping, come for a bit or retail therapy ! this Sunday 15th of November, from 10 am to 5 pm at ALSAA, Swords Road, Dublin.
We are a group of mothers that run different bussiness, a lot of these are of handmade crafts !!
