Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Christmas is officially over and done with.

This is the very last thing I intend to show you from Christmas 2013.  

These candles have been put up in our house for more years than I care to remember.  Originally, they were normal straight candles, bought just to look good in the holder.  We did this for several years and put them away after the festive season was over.

They were always stored in the same place and laid flat.  One year, we were a little late putting the decorations up.  The candles came out and we just fell about, they had turned into twisty crooked candles.  We did not have time to buy more to replace them, so they were plonked into the holder and put out, just as a giggle.

My twisted candles became a real talking point, so we carried on using them every year after that.  Each year, the twist is different, so you never know what you will find when the decs come out.  Perhaps, one day they will come out dead straight again .........

That is it for Christmas 2013.  I shall start again for 2014 on 25th January, joining in with Rudolph Day at Sarn's blog, http://stampingforpleasure.blogspot.co.uk/
