Fun fun fun

LOL im haveing so much fun makeing christmas things at the moment,
now most of you have probably already done this, but incase your like me and hadent thought about it,this wee box is a recycled chrisse card,how cool is that.
All you do is get an old used card, cut it in half down the crease,the front will become the top and the back will become the bottom of the box, crease 1 inch in from edge of card on all 4 sides ,to make the courner folds see picture above .
To make the bottom do the same as above but make it a tiny bit smaller,
not to much or your lid will be losse. Have fun :)

Christmas goodie bags

That Christmas felling is starting to kick in at last, i have been busy making goodie bags, the one above is my all time favourite,each year
i buy abut 20 of these cute mini kit bags from the $2 shop, they cost
$1 each, then i decorate them (im loving the bells i got this year) and
add treats, I send these overseas ,and to a few special friends here
in New Zealand, I add things like NZ made products for over seas such as
some of our delicious moisturisers, Rotourua mud soap,kiwi fruit face cream etc, for my NZ friends i add things i either know they like for eg:
I have done one with lip gloss and nail polishes in it and another has
a voucher and lose chockys in it. They are easy to post or deliver and theres no limit as to what gos in them,also were shearing a little bit of Kiwi with the rest of the world .
Hope your all in joying this super weather we have today. TFL
Edited: I have just reloaded this post as the last one had a link to a porn site :( grrr I think i will have to use the moderate posts thing from now on as it takes ages to re post and if anyone has left me a nice post that gets deleted to .

ATC Christmas card

I did a class at SBS, i loved the idea of a ATC on a card so went for a play.
This is my first attempt at ATC and can see a lot of cool uses for these apart from trading. TFL

The Sketchbook Retreat was awesome, when i say survivor its because i didn't sleep allot lol Cherie and i stayed up till around 3am Friday night and then up about 8am , Saturday night we ended upalmost doing an al-nighter Here we were in a big hall just the 2 of us having the time of our life,I haven't laughed so much in ages I think we have the same silly sense of humour anyway we finallythought we best get some sleep about 5.30 ish am.Fay and Nicks classes were great,especially loved Nicks as the papers were right up my ally, The foodwas delicious the people were great . Oh Saturday night Halloween party (dress up) was cool, lots ofus dressed for the night and lots of photos were taken,our very own Kelly made us all tomb stones for theback of our chairs and made EVERY one a little Halloween bag with a chocky in it thanks Kelly your the bomb all her hard work urned our group a prize pack.I will be doing a few layouts with some of the photos over the next week you might find some interesting tit bits on them i have one nearly ready to load thanks to Lisa's nifty little photo printerso it will be up tonight I'm hoping, might have to have a we nap first.Megan did an outstanding job setting this all up and i will defiantly be in for the next one
