Catch up after half term

Last week was half term, my daughter just started back today. We did a fair few craft projects getting ready for Christmas.

We made soap and bath bombs in mini cupcake moulds - chocolate scented to match the lipbalms. I'll make some boxes to put them in and DD can decorate and give to our family.

DD has been invited to a few birthday parties. For the one little girl we made a memory wire bracelet - I'm a convert after the one I made for my Mum and invested in a few supplies from Sanctuary Beads on eBay. She made the pinky one and I made the other two for family.

She also made all the Christmas cards for her classmates.

I've had a good craft week too. I won my first candy :D

A beautiful selection fromSamuel Taylors. It had some lovely things that I haven't played with before. Haven't had the time to play with it - just looking and stroking :) I'm hoping to have a day to play next week.

Today was my craft club we played with resist techniques and distress inks.

I'd like to enter this one in the latest MSE challenge.

I bought Do Crafts Creativity magazine and I am on page 78 with a card I made for the competition

Lastly added to my stash with these quilling dies - great fun.

Phew - long post! Should have restored order and be back to normal by next week.
