Well, I am trying to stay relaxed and calm - BUT the usual pre-Xmas panic is starting to set in. I have a long list of craft projects to complete and post off, but I can see the end of that now, and lots will be in the post tomorrow. Xmas cards - I will sit down tonight and write out all the ones I have made already and then assess the state of my list. I will then buy some from a charity shop tomorrow, and then I don't need to worry about finding time to make the rest. Four parcels arrived with the postman and a courier today; only 2 more parcels expected. Next year, I think I will either just give vouchers or buy everything from one store.
We ordered my new computer yesterday, and it should be with us within 10 working days. It has Windows 8 and a big screen, so will be fab for my digital crafting and blogging.
I bravely decided to take part in Jozarty's Angel Swap. I received 2 wonderful angels - one from Jo and one from Donna www.adonnathing.com. My attempts to create something angelic ended up with these -
I was already late making them and my grander ideas involving different materials and my sewing machine had to be put to one side for another day. I simply cut out 'angel' shapes from card and then stuck on pieces of Xmas paper, and then trimmed the edges. Ric-rac was used for the hanging loops. I sprayed silver glitter on both sides. The wings were cut from acetate, which already had a design printed on it. I named them Sraosha (Angel that sets the world in motion) and Purah (Angel of forgetfulness).
