Christmas Tag


Scrapbookerry

I made this tag yesterday out of a selection of new products that I have never really used before. I was sent them in my design team pack and I have to admit they really pushed my comfort zone.

I am not a massive alcohol ink user, I love what people do with them, but have never really been sure what to do with them myself. So it was a challenge. However after a bit of research and watching a few videos, I thought that I could have a good go.

Domestic GOddesque

Breast Cancer Ribbon Biscuits


Domestic GOddesque

I spent a couple of hours with a big blob of sugar paste last week so that I can bring you these biscuits. Not one of them is the same size though: I’m not Holly Bell. And what better time than during National Baking Week? Two birds, one stone- that’s my kind of maths.

So, first you will need a batch of your favourite biscuits. I tried an all butter recipe, but I wasn’t all that impressed and tend to favour the biscuit recipe in The Biscuiteers book. Who wouldn’t? Anyhow, make your biscuits and cut out circles, then bake and leave to cool.

Here come the Girls

Pumpkin Teapot


Here come the Girls

Whilst carving pumpkins I had a brilliant What?Wednesday idea. If you haven’t heard of What?Wednesday it is the funny link up from the brilliant Mammasaurus where you think of ideas to publicize your blog. I was thinking of all those little children and parents looking at the pumpkins as they came to my house. Haha! A captive audience.

So here it is my spooktastic pumpkin tea set all ready for Halloween. I had to make a tea pot because of the shape of the pumpkin and because of my Tuesday tea and sympathy link up. I also really like tea.

Flanders Field poppies


momstown arts and crafts

Young children learn about Remembrance Day at school – and maybe even earlier, if we teach them about it at home or at preschool. You can start by making momstown’s Flanders Field craft – with poppies that are easy to make, and could be a way to start to explain a bit about the history of our country.

What you need:

Popsicle sticks
Construction paper
Glue
Scissors
Green playdough
Green marker

Start by colouring your popsicle stick green (with marker). Then cut out two circles – a large red one and a smaller black one.

Glue them on to the popsicle stick.

Glue two plain white popsicle sticks together for crosses.

Green playdough makes the field. Insert the poppies and playdough into the field.

Wooden Christmas tree


the gingerbread house

I’ve seen lots of variations of wooden Christmas trees using driftwood so every time we were at the seaside I would scour the beach for suitable pieces. After months of looking and not finding I gave up and decided small branches from the local woods would do just as well!
