My wedding book (thankyou x)

Some wonderful friends and fellow crafters collaborated and made a page each to be bound together to make a wonderful treasure. A wedding book .. each page has come along with a matching ATC ( As they know how much I love My ATCs .. :-)

the individual pages are mostly on the blogs of the ladies who made them .. so I wanted just to show the finished product next to the top half of my outfit so they could see how well the colour has matched .. and from one photo I showed AGES ago ..

So I have made a Canvas for her and hope my son can give me a lift in the car to go see her and take it to her. I miss her very much if I dont see her on a monday ..... Sigh!

Fathers day Card(Wednesday Stamper)

I made this for mike to take to his dad today .(It was a bit last minute)... along with the altered address book below which I made a while back.
Under the flap is a little quote of gratitude as mikes dad adopted him and his brothers and has been wonderful father to them..
He is going to be a great father in law too :-)

Card Image removed for publishing

The card and the tag below this post were made from papers given to me by the lovely Kaz. (thank you Kaz x)

Tag Swap

I have joined a monthly tag swap and this months theme was vintage couples. I am a little concerned that this is not actually very vintage looking (although the couple are) so I may try another ..

Still I am happy with the tag whatever it gets used for in the end.

Blog Neglect

I have not put a single thing in here for ages.. But what with exams, written homework and the wedding plans, I dont have much time right now.
I do get some crafting done but nothing blog worthy and at the moment its mostly wedding favours and Name tag things for the table to help with the seeting plans.. What are the called?? place name tags ??
feel free to give me the answer lol.. cos when ever I talk about them to anyone I am having to use the term...
.... "you know these name tag things for the table for the seating plan"... its long winded. :-D

Just a few days after the wedding I have my Partners 16 year old moving in with us so I am also busy sorting out his room which means packing up and shiffting all the rooms round and My son has still not packed his stuff (he is 25) he keeps saying "chil mum there is plenty time :-S . errm 4 weeks is not long really ...

Anyway I hope that at the end of July when all the big busy stuff is over, I will get back to crafting (although minus a craft room by then) and get posting things on my blog.

The wedding is 3 weeks today Woo hoo :-)

Domino Book

well a full sized domino 4cmx2cm book this time.. much easier than the little one. This is for a friend at college who's Birthday is next week :-)

2.8cm x 1.4cm Domino Book

I found some of those miniature dominoes in my local craft shop so I bought a few and decided to try and make a concertina style book with them after being inspired by someone Else's blog yesterday (Fatma's Place). Oh my it was fiddly getting my fingers round it. 3cm is not very big it turns out :-) and only 1cm wide.. I love it now its done though.

Another Tag book

Well yes its another Tag Book. College term is coming to an end and the group we share our evening sessions with have asked me to make something for their day time tutor as a summer holiday farewell and thank you gift. I have done a tag book ( I do hope they like it ok ) and stuck to the vacation/holidays/travel theme for it. Please click on the images to enlarge and see the full details.

Black luxury. An altered bottle for Art Daily Cafe

  The theme over on Art Daily Cafe this month is “Black luxury” so I have altered this big bottle using mostly black gesso and jet jewel pa...
