breaking the rules

 New kit from Jagged Touch studio  Jubilicious Jamboree... it is so bold and bright  and fun  I wanted to push the rules a bit .

the twelve days of christmas

 Here are my twelve parcels ready to go to Jo Anne .... for the MAMA twelve day of christmas swap 

and  here they are...... The first six fabulous gifts  .. 

Day one: This beautiful little jar with a tiny christmas tree inside.

 Day Two:  sweet smelling pillow
 Day three: beautiful tags 
 Day four:  An stunning angel 
 Day five : A lavender candle,  it smells so nice 

Day six:  Vintage Metal thread  it kind of mind blowing to think it's that old.  

 Six more days of fabulous treats to come over the next six days   Thank you JoAnne

More days 
 Day seven ... yummy 
 Day eight ... beautiful handmade Shabby chic star
 Day Nine yule time hanger
 Day Ten  wow  what can i say ...  A Santa Charlotte reel doll 

Day Eleven  More yum!  chocolate covered spoon 
 Day twelve  A beautiful tart tin ornament


 When Kim  and  I  saw these  faerie shrines at retro cafe Art gallery we both fell in love with them  and  quickly decided we had to do a swap together  ... We were going to do a halloween one but you know what it's like sometimes time just gets away from you so we decide to make christmas one instead.   The top one is my test one 
I used a matchbox to make the niche a bit deeper... plenty of room to put in a mini christmas tree 
  This is the one I sent to Kim  and this is the beauty she send back. Miss Kim is the queen of paint ... she layers it so well ...
 Don't you just LOVE her  I have her hanging on my tree 
Thank you Kim for swapping with me

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

beautiful  frosty elements and papers from ItkUpiLLi  they cant help put be images of sugarplum faeries and  frosty nights in your head 

available here for a short while
