Father and Mother Christmas

Here they are together.
I was pleased with the results.
Her glasses were made from the plastic coated wire that holds a toy in place in the box. The lenses, from the clear plastic window of the box. These would normally be thrown away, so it's a good idea to recycle these bits. With all the presents being opened soon, there will be tons of things you can save to help with lots of different crafts.

Mother Christmas

I have just recently made Mother Christmas. She looks a bit snooty. Perhaps she doesn't like Santa staying out all night. lol.

Father Christmas.

I have been making cloth dolls for about two years on and off.
I made Santa while staying with my sister-in- law, Suze, in Oct.

Halloween Party.

Here is a pic of some of my grandchildren dressed in their Halloween costumes. We had a little party for my grandson's second birthday, which is on the 2nd of November and we combined the two events. We finished off the evening with some fireworks and all had a great time. Guess who had to do all the cleaning up though. LOL.

My first Twinches

Here is a picture of the first twinchies that I made, Twinchies are 2" square, and are very similar to Atc's just made on a smaller scale.

A Few of my Atc's

Here are a few of my collaged atc's that I have traded in the past, the African mask atc has an embossed strip on the right hand side, I just love making these small works of art !

A bit about me !

Its a brand new day and this is my brand new blog, I am feeling quiet excited about this new venture, My name is Jen and I live with my husband near Heathrow airport on the outskirts of London, I have a family of grown up children and 18 grandchildren, so life can be very hectic sometimes but hopefully I will be able to keep up to date with my blog.

I started making fabric and paper crafts about 2 years ago after a visit to my sister in law, who has been making items for many years now, she encouraged me to try making fabric postcards and Atc's for trading with other people, this then got completely out of hand as I have not stopped since, and now make many other items including cloth dolls, paper dolls, quilties, tag books, button fairies, altered tins, and altered kilt pins to name just a few, I still regularly make and trade my Atc's with my sister in law and in some yahoo groups that I belong to
