At last I have started some of my crafting for Christmas. For the altered container challenge on Crafty Place I have transformed an old box into an advent box for my boys. Now I have to fill it...

coaster calendars

I had a lovely day with Tams and Maddison today. Tams very kindly brought me some beer mats and calendars. I made a couple after she had gone - I am addicted! they look lovely and are so quick and easy to make!


Luke is having some friends round on Saturday evening for a movie night for his birthday so I have decorated some notebooks to go in the party bags with a pen, pencil, rubber and sweets.

tri fold card

at last I have made my trifold card for Melissa in the Crafty Place swap. I have had so many problems making this card and mine was fairly simple! I cut it wrong, I found it really hard to find papers i liked (note to self: need more papers!) then I cut them wrong. I had so many attempts! Anyway I hope Melissa likes it...

my first wallet

I made my first wallet the other day to send some stamped images in. I was quite pleased that I managed to make it! Although looking at the photo the ribbon isn't too straight!
