Little lantern: Designed for ARTChix

I had a little square glass Tea-light candle holder and decided to jazz it up a bit, using the little wooden houses and acetate images Helga, of ARTChix, sent to me this week.

If you dont have a glass holder then you can get little battery operated fake tea-lights for safety. You can find the little houses HERE and the images HERE.

Craft Barn Design Piece 4: Katzelkraft.

Well here is my last Design team piece as "Octobers" guest designer for the Craft Barn. Its a TANDO printers tray frame altered to look like an Egyptian artefact collection. It is also a Calender to match the ongoing theme over there. For more information on how it was made and a list of products used, please visit the Craft Barn blog. :)

Thank you again to The Craft Barn, for inviting me over there for the month. it was a great pleasure.

Please do pop over to the Craft Barn Blog for details on materials used etc.

In Fond Memory:

A dear Craft friend has died. A woman who was an upfront,down to earth, decent and warm hearted friend. Met in a craft forum 7 years ago and known originally to me only as Lazy Kay.
she dabbled in lots of crafting styles from paper craft,wool, baking, floral.... everything always made with great thought.
She had mad net surfing skills and would find us almost any item we had been searching for. makes me smile to think of it. the "links" expert.

Funeral is on the 18th. How I wish there were not so many miles between us.

Dearest Kath. you will be missed.
