Odds and Ends.........

Hi, first want to tell you about some important stuff, Ali-Craft have a fantastic sale on at the moment as much as £6 off their Tim Holtz stamps, plus masks etc.  Of course I bought some bits it would be daft not to at these prices.  Am letting you know as not everyone is on Facebook and possibly might not know.

Have finished my Christmas Bricks..........the little grandchilden will be pleased to know as they love playing with this sort of thing.


Primed, Gesso, Acrylics, Pewter Liquid Leaf.  Modge Podge Matt and Gloss.  All the pictures are from the Crafty Individual Miniatures ' Christmas' paper stack.

I also made this pendant.............am certainly not good at jewellery makes, but this was simple......chuck watch parts and micra beads into the pendant then fill with Glossy Accents.  Easy Peasy, another gift completed.


The weekend before last we travelled down to see our latest grand-daughter Evaine, she is such a little honey.  Here is a snapshot of us and the expression on her face says it all..............lol


In case you are wondering, I'm the one with the saggy boobs................and looking totally windswept....

Thank you for dropping by and hope I haven't bored you to death.  Have a great weekend.  We are celebrating our Wedding Anniversary on Saturday by a trip to the Pantomime............yep we know how to live it up.  Take care, hugs Annette x

Lovely photos of your new granddaughter, and beautiful vintage Christmas bricks, Annette - what a wonderful gift idea. I love the pendant too - it looks just great.

Thanks (I think) for the heads-up about the sale too... I'm a non-FBer, so wouldn't have known - but that might have been safer too!!
Happy Anniversary!
