Christmas 2010 makes - final!

I love making tags, and had more fun with them than with cards this year.

Christmas 2010 makes, ongoing...

It's time for Christmas cards. I need to learn to take good photo's!

Christmas 2010 makes... continued!

This was a little Christmas planning book that I made for myself, with pockets instead of pages so I will be able to use it again in the future!

Some Christmas 2010 makes...

I haven't posted photo's of my creations for ages, so please forgive me a little indulgence as I pop these up over the next few posts. All of these items were made in the run up to Christmas 2010 - my favourite time of year!

Reallllly sorry for the poor quality photo's - I promise that everything looked a million times better in the flesh ;)

I made Shaun a Tim Holtz inspired advent calandar for christmas, using gorgeous papers (I think My Minds Eye). It was fun to make and the pictures dont do it justice.

Pay it forward


I've just seen the fab post from Chris at Sketching Stamper who's running a PIF on her blog, and I decided to have a go too, regardless as to if I made it into her PIF or not!

So here it is (rules borrowed from Chris, thanks!): I promise to send something handmade to the first five people who comment on this post. But if you enter you must post this too, and offer something handmade to another five people that comment on your blog.

The rules are that it must be something handmade or homemade by you and it has to be sent to five other people during 2011, so we all have plenty of time :D!

If you'd like to join in the fun, then be among the first five to post a comment and something handmade or homemade will be coming your way at some point this year.

I promise I'll make it something good!

An extra new year resolution...

I've signed the pledge at Operation Nice - wont you too?

I will hold the door for people behind me. I will say "please" and "thank you." I will smile at strangers. I will compliment people. If I'm not sure whether I should greet someone with a handshake or hug, I will opt for the hug. If I see someone having trouble, I will offer help. I will try to perform at least one Random Act of Kindness a week. I will be grateful. I will not hold grudges. I will always do my best to be humble, empathetic, and honest. I will be mindful and considerate of the people around me. I will be kind to people, animals, and nature. All in all, I promise to be nicer!
