I can't believe...

we are in November already, where has this year gone?

I have been so busy in the shop recently but this week has been really manic, I have orders coming out of everywhere. I had been so busy making stuff for Christmas that the other stock is starting to look a little thin in places so I have a few lines that need re-stocking.

I have 4 Craft fairs to attend between next weekend and the 15th of December along with 4 sessions of craft club per week and some extra dates for Christmas classes so I am pretty busy at the minute!!

So what have I been making, this for my new Grandson, Henley

For Henley
Then I had a go at this little Reindeer that my Son Stuart found for me, it was a little grubby but nothing a fresh coat of paint didnt sort out.


He is now filled with bags of Magic Reindeer food.

I also have a few piccy's of other stuff I have on sale in the shop and a few of the orders I have made

All colours available

Stocking Holder for Sophie

and for Jack

The Fireplace

Behind the till

I found these 6" plywood circles yesterday and turned them all into Christmas Puddings, the top is painted in Ivory and the bottom is Blackboard paint, I added the 'days 'till Christmas' with a white chalk marker and decorated with tops with some seasonal foliage, cones and berries

Well thats all for now, its off to work for me, another busy day. I am doing a class on Napkin decoupage this afternoon, some of my ladies are making decoupaged coasters and table mats for Christmas but they will have to tackle the crackle glaze first. Hopefully they will enjoy it and maybe we will have some photos later.
