Only 16 more sleeps

Yikes! where has the time gone? I have to say that I have hardly done any Christmas shopping and only 8 Christmas cards so far!

Still I have made a new countdown thingame (obviously far more urgent than shopping).

This mini-blackboard is a child's toy which I found in a craft store. I've decorated it with the fabulous Eskimo Kisses from Basic Grey. I love the fact that everything is double-sided and there are lots of little patterns (perfect for those accessories).

Yet another snowman - I have to say my snowmen are very much inspired by the fabulous Linda Albrecht who is this month's Guest Designer at Ally Scraps. I've been following Linda's blog for ages - she creates such wonderful pieces she is a sparkle genius.

Unfortuately the light here is poor so you can't see all the sparkly glitter and glass bauble gems. They really are divine. The little dear is cut out of Dearly paper - I wish I had bought the chip stickers - the little girls and boys would have looked fabulous.

I made a clay birdie to sit on a branch. She is covered in ultra-fine glitter too.

It's hard to see the paper roses and berries but they've been touched by a little frost and snow too.

I hope that I've inspired to make something for Christmas too.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Love it Morag simply beautiful!! Love the snowman you have quite a theme going with these beautie's xxx

    I've got so many half finished presents about, I must get organised. Problem is I start checking out everyone's blogs instead of crafting!!!!
    I love what you've been making.

    Happy Crafting.
