who wants to play???

I'm here making a very tall mad hatters top hat for Zac..... Pictures to follow!
I should be finishing some reports for work, but its Halloween! (nuff said!)
anyhoo, I just thought I'd ask if anyone wants to play "swap the mini" this month?
I was thinking that December will just be sooooo busy for everyone, so why don't we swap something festive in November and then we can take December off?
Leave me a comment, I'll gather up the names on Sunday 7th and post the list then.
so, i'd better get back to this hat, apparently teaspoons need to be sewn to his jacket too- at very nearly 14 he can tackle that bit himself!
Actually he could probably make the hat too, but then what fun would that be for me??!

Surely not!!!

Its October, the Halloween decorations aren't even up yet (they are down from the attic though, so maybe today?) and I find myself making a christmas album!
But I'm making it for a good cause, so its ok.
My junior school friend Heidi, whom I haven't seen for very close to 30 years (eek!) has a daughter who goes to the same village school that we went to. Through the wonders of Facebook, she has asked past pupils to donate something to the christmas fair raffle..... So thats what i'm doing!
I'm making it fairly simple with lots of photo space using the K&CO Yuletide collection from the Crafty Alley . I swore I wasn't buying anymore paper..... but you know how these things happen... ( Isn't that right Ann??!)
When its finished I'll put up some more photos.
Have a lovely day,

Saturday Stuff.

Hello, I just wanted to show you the beautiful album I got from Christa in this months swap.
There are some really pretty things inside, i'll show you more of it in a video soon. Thanks Christa, I love it!!

Zac is doing a graffiti art course at the moment and since his room needed decorating anyway, he's practising his art. Those spikes at the bottom are the crown on the statue of liberty!! I'll have to make him stop soon, no amount of open windows will get rid of the smell of spray paint!
( he's wearing a mask for the spraying bit)

If you live anywhere near me and would like a pumpkin for Halloween lanterns then please buy one of Zacs!! He grew these from seed in my Dads greenhouse, planted them out and harvested them - prehaps he's the next Richard Branson!!
