PAY IT FORWARD 2011!!!!!

I have seen this posted on several blogs on the internet:

"I promise to send an original creation to the 1st 5 people who leave a comment here.  They must, in turn, post this, and send something they make to the 1st 5 people who comment on their status."

The rules are:

1.  It must be handmade by you

2.  It must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011

Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!

Now, I think that this is a brilliant idea and I have already signed up.  If you would like to receive one of my creations (and it will be an original, not anything that is for sale in my Etsy shop), please feel welcome to join in.  Somehow, I feel that the spirit of this operation demands something a bit more involved than just sending a hand made card or an ATC!  Sorry to sound narky but it is Monday morning after all!   Also, I intend to have my creations made and shipped by the end of March 2011 God willing...

So please join in and share your lovely crafty makes with the world!

Aideen's Giveaways/Blog Candy

Hi Crafty Folks,

Just to let you know that Aideen, the master of minis/mini albums has some giveaways/blog candy on her blog including some of her Mum's crochet flowers so pop over here  enter, and check out her incredible mini albums.
I'm not posting much myself because of ongoing dental problems-my gob is going to have to be totally rebuilt and if it wasnt for crafty stuff to distract me from the pain...I would be a public nuisance!
All the best

RED + February Challenge at By the Cute and Girly Challenge Blog

Morning folks!  Its the 1st day of February and here on the northside of Dublin the sun is shining and there is a hint of Spring in the air.  Its also time for a new challenge at By the Cute and Girly.  This month the challenge is hosted by the gorgeous Ayelet and she has chosen "Red and one other Colour" as the month's theme.  Now I know you're thinking Valetine's Day but it doesn't have to be a lovey dovey make - just dig out some red crafty bits and combine them with one other colour.  All types of crafts (Baking/Cardmaking/Scrapbooking/Jewellery/Tags/Knitting/Crochet etc, etc) are invited - you can get the full details here - and see all the DT's red + makes, especially Lisa's Gingerbread Couple  and how they spent Valentine's Day.

Great prizes on offer from
                                      Simon Says Stamp
                                      Joanna Sheen
                                      Little Snippets

I choose red + chocolate brown for my makes.  The card uses a digi image from the StampFairy:  "Love"  paper is by Bo Bunny.

An altered biscuit tin left over after Christmas.  I used Websters Pages Garden Gala,the most beautiful papers I've ever come across, available  from here, and my own Little Snippets butterflies.  I made up some red net roses, added some pearly swirls from Prima  and finally some trimmings I inherited from my mother (a great woman for altering things or "getting at something" as she called it).  I punched two holes in the top of the tin and strung beads on wire through them for a handle.

 Have a great day and cheer yourselves up with a touch of red!
