Here's what I'm up to....

Ebay stamps - cheap n cheerful tags!

Recycled tags. Twine rocks!!!

30 cards ahoy!

Thought it would be a good idea to make some cards for the Nursery Fete so I could use up some of the Brenda Pinnick Xmas Crafters Kit I bought over 2 years ago. This was a massive box of stuff that had minibooks/cards/scrapbooking - you name it - it had the lot (apart from some stamps!!!) and although I've used it over and over again, next time you open the box, it looks like it's hardly been touched. So, I put it to good use and invested in a few stamps (go ebay!) and hey presto, for a minimal outlay I've made 30 cards and recycled some old Christmas cards from last year to make 60 tags and then I had to justify the ebay stamps so 48 handmade tags later we are all ready to go. Phew!!! Hope they sell!!! I especially love doing the recycled card tags, it gets me in the Christmas spirit and is turning into a bit of a tradition chez Strachan. I even have the girls in on the act now - Sadie causes more havoc than anything else but she's funny and keeps us all amused with her craziness!!!
Next stop - pressie shopping!
Love J

busy busy...

After the flurry of activity that was hallowe'en it's back to the old Christmas tags and card making. I'm going to take some piccies soon of my very untidy table and let you see what I'm doing. The nursery cake and craft morning takes place nearer the end of the month so I really must get cracking. I have set myself some goals and I hate to let myself down so enough of this time wasting/procrastination, I'm off to do some work...
Have creative fun my crafty friends!!!

Jack Skellington alive in Dundee!!! Hahaha!!!!

We had lots of fun dookin' for apples, pumpkin carving (nice one Leon!!!!) and trick or treating. Imagine my surprise/horror though when I thought I'd nip in to Tesco on Sunday - yes actually Hallowe'een - The Day, to top up on treats for visitors, only to find that The World of Tesco had totally washed their hands of Hallowe'en and were slap bang into the hard sell of Christmas complete with huge wallopin' decorated tree at the entrance!!! Bah humbug anyone? Hmmmmm....
