The Christmas Nail poem

Oh my, I stumbled across this Christmas Nail poem and idea and just had to make some up!


Why make just one when you can make 20 right!
They are fiddly to do but worth it - it has such meaning and the power of that one nail is awesome!

Thanks for looking,

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

It's getting harder to find clean non chipped Charger Plates in the stores lately.
These are ones I bought last year - I was lucky enough to see them on the first day on their shelf, so was able to get good ones! had I known how difficult it would be this year I would have bought more.

Merry Christmas Charger Plate 2015

OMG, I LOVE this charger plate.

I love everything about it - the colour, the design, it's just so different and one of a kind!


And it's mine! Yes, this is my Christmas decor this year.
How cute is the lolly as the pom-pom!
It won't go with my frame I made last year. but that's ok, it had it's day last year!

This plate really is way, way nicer in real life.
I'm sorry I only bought the 2 plates when I saw them because I went back to get some more and nothing! But I have 2 gorgeous plates now and I am happy with that.

Thanks for looking,

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

There is Always Something to be Thankful For.

On this day, Remembrance day, we truly do have something to be Thankful for.
The fact that we live in a country that gives us choice, a voice and opportunities no matter what our race, gender or religion. Now that is something to be thankful for.

I made this Charger Plate as a reminder.


I must say that is plate looks sooooooo much nicer in real life!
