Hello campers :)

Hello campers I'm here again trying my best to blog, still not as straight forward  as I would like it to be,but because I have written a list of what to do nextI am getting better, apart from when I can't read my own writing. Leanne sat next to me again tutting now and then as if to say have you not remembered that bit. Anyway this is another of the Christmas samples belonging to the Christmas class of  19th Nov, repeated 26th Nov, using some of the Molly Bloom stamps, of which this is one of them. I've used traditional colours red and green in both the samples shown (with spotted as the theme), but I'm also using black spotted paper and a penguin stamp.

If anyone is interested I have a class on Sat. Dec. 3rd where I have made a Christmas wallhanging and a Christmas cracker using a diecut cracker. There is plenty of stamping cutting and glueing.

I have always loved making Christmas decorations and try to make something every year that is different for my sisters.As you know my sister Susan is a crafter too and comes along to the classes, so it is sometimes hard to make something for her, using papers etc.that she hasn't seen before.(We are often out and about on our travels, via the craft shops looking for new crafting goodies.) Susan always has an advantage, as at this time of year she goes off to America to see her son and his family, so gets to look at the craft shops over there. My other sister Joanne although not a crafter is an excellent baker.(Some of you will have tasted her cakes when we had the open evenings at the shop).
 So here's hoping that Susan doesn't see the blog and I can make her a wallhanging similar, perhaps using different colours and that Joanne doesn't go on the blog and I can give her the cracker. Hope you like them, let me know via an email if you want to come along and make.

Better close now as Stephens in charge of dinner,not may I add something he does often, and at the moment he has hurt his foot, which seem to stop his hands working, but who am I to complain, he is making an effort. Hope the chicken tastes as good as it smells....

To be continued......

Happy crafting all.
