Scrapzville Swap for December!!

Well, today saw the majority of the minis being swapped for November!
Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou to everyone who participated, I'm really pleased with how it went.
I was debating doing one for December because everyone is so busy, but it seems the interest is there so this is the deal......
If your interested (new people extremely welcome!) then leave me a comment here with your blog address, on Tuesday morning, the 1st of December i will post the names in pairs. Its open to anyone in Ireland and Great Britain, the mini can be as small as 31/2" by 31/2" and a maximum of 6x6", and must contain at least 6 pages.
Because its a very busy month for everyone you will have until Womens Christmas- thats January 6th - to complete it and the theme is.... HO, HO, HO!! (what a surprise!)
Its been great fun, so please join in!
Well thats it for now,
Have a good weekend,
F xx

Camera Trouble!

Hi, i've been trying to do a video of the TWS swap for Louise.... and nothing has gone right!
First the camera kept cutting out, i can't find out how to take the timer off of it, then it looked fine on the camera but its really fuzzy on Youtube!
So, I'm going to meet Louise today (yeah!) and ask her if she would make a little video of it since i've done such a bad job. Of course if i hadn't left it untill the last minute i could have fixed it, but as usual there is NO TIME!!
I'll take photos instead.
Ok, getting ready for work now, hope all of the Craft Club are feeling festive!!
Bye xxxxxx

Scrapzville mini for Robyn part 1

Scrapzville Swap for Robyn part 2


I've been really busy trying to finish projects.... I'll post a video of Robyns mini that i finished last night. Louise's mini is half done, but i'm waiting for something special to arrive before that will be ready (hope its worth the wait!).
Yesterday i got an email from Roseanne in North Carolina, i'm swapping with her for the GGS swap. Because it is already the 19th of November i had started a mini for her already, its vintage using Lifes Journey papers. Very fortunately she said she likes old things!
So, i think i'm almost up to date, my knitting is still not finished, and we had a huge new delivery into the shop this week.... its all lovely and i want to knit things in it, but i'm being very restrained, no more new knitting! (untill these cardigans are finished!)
Have a good day, and if you're in Ireland don't go out without your wellies!!

So, i did get something done after all! This is a 16x20" canvas, painted with black acrylic paint. I got my fantastic plastic, some fibres and gold and silver deco metal, and threw it all onto it and this is what came out!

If only i'd get on with it!.....

Its Monday, its wet and windy and I'm at home.... I have so many half finished projects at the moment that i've given up counting them! Thanks to Cathy my knitting infatuation is back, but that is a good thing as i have not one but two unfinished cardigans on the go, and i have to knit something for my Dad's birthday in December.
I'm playing with Fantastic Plastic, which is really cool, and i have a blank canvas (literally!) ready to fill.
Thats not including the two minis I have to give this month.....
And am i doing any of it? No! i'm sitting here talking about it!!
Ho hum, i'm sure inspiration will kick in any minute now....
Hope your day is more productive then mine!

Die Swap.

Thanks to Ann, Cathy, Mary and Ann L who all braved the weather to come over on Thursday evening. We spent the evening cutting pieces of paper into strange shapes.... in otherwords, having great fun!
Robyn was missed, but since i have her in the mini swap i was able to get a head start without giving anything away!
Anyway, Ann, i wish you a very safe and enjoyable trip home to Florida, and we'll catch up when you're back.

Halloween Mini!

WOW!!!! for once i am speechless...(yes, i know that doesn;t happen often!) today i went to the post office to collect my mini from Samantha, i was waiting outside the school for Molly and Zac trying to tear open the box with my keys, but it was so well wrapped that i had to wait till i got home. Just as well i would have shamed myself with all the screaming!
Every page is more amazing then the last, I'll make a video and put it up soon, i don't know how to start describing it.
Samantha also sent LOTS of extra goodies, ribbons, papers and embellishments. and some really cool wooden bits ready to be painted.
So Thankyou Samantha, i just love it!!!!!
