Martini Glasses - Christmas Candles

Christmas Candles

We are going to my Mom for Christmas and I decided to make some Christmas Candles for the dining room table - candle lit Christmas Dinner.  I had these 2 martini glasses and I asked Winnie @ Crafty Corner to please turn them into gel candles for me. I then added some bling, gold studs and a snow flake to each of them. 

Well now I've started something!!! I love collecting all sorts of wine glasses, cherry glasses, champagne glasses, glasses and some more glasses. Yet I don't drink? So I have decided that all these glasses are going to be turned into gel candles. Perfect for Mothers Day, birthday gifts etc.

Christmas Card - Paper Flower Tutorial

PP F XMAS

This Christmas card is for the Day-Mother.
I found a paper flower tutorial @ Imagine, Create, Inspire - BLOG and
decided to try it out. I just love these paper flowers and I'm so
pleased that I found this tutorial.

Well I hope you pop over for the tutorial and try it out!!!!





NOT AN ADVENT CALENDAR

J Box

This weekend I went Christmas shopping and decided to buy Shanice quite a lot of jewelry. When I went home I had a look at her jewelry boxes to make sure she is going to have enough space for all the new goodies, but she will never have enough space.

That's when I decided I need to make her something for all her junk jewelry. So the advent calendar has become a jewelry box goody for her bedroom wall. I used the "Stanley the cat collection" again, as it matches her cat bed linen. 

She can hang her chains in the middle were I added hooks and she has loads of drawer space for everything else. I really hope she like is!!



Personalized Wooden Hanger - Christmas Gift

P Hanger

I have been scrapping in the evenings to get all my Christmas gifts done. This is something new, a personalized wooden hanger for the girls.

All I did was give it a coat of paint, add 3 hooks, ribbon, brads & bling. They are now on my on-line shop and are only R58 each.

I'm sure Shanice is going to love it!! I'd love to know what you think?

Now I need something for the boys?
