Christmas Card 2012

This year I made a Christmas tree costume from Felt & - voila! 

Freddy makes a great prop!

Bonne Noel!

Enough, mum!

Oh, and! Freddy is now 9 months....

DIY Christmas Favors - the leftovers

With my leftover baubles I made a 1st Christmas ornament for the Newlyweds.

And baubles for the babies in my Mothers Group, all of Freddy's lil mates..

And of course, lil Archie.
Coincidentally he was wearing the same suit the day it arrived for him..

Christmas Baubles

Much to my delight I just did a little job painting Christmas Baubles for a PR Company's top clients. 

What a delight this would be to do for a living! 

Well. seasonal sure.. but crafting at home & BEING PAID = too good to be true! 

Freddy played on the floor whilst I painted.  The only downside- our family has been covered in glitter for the last couple of weeks. Including LPs in the office! hehe.

So the baubles come from Riot Art & Craft, and are filled with various beads, sequins & pearls. 

These are truly the most versatile decortation, I could think of so many ways to use them!
(In particular as wedding bonboneirie.. I had a vision of light blue painted sticks as table centrepieces, with these hanging down. One for each guest...sweet! Oh well, bit late for us!)

Here's some trials.
