or 9 should that be??
Yes they're back! the theme for November inchies swaps was wintertime/christmas time and here's my offering.
I have recently been introduced to Moo cards and miniature atc's, so when I've finished some I'll blog those too....
I don't know where this year has gone! it doesn't seem possible that its nearly Christmas again - and yet again, I haven't started my cards yet which means a mad rush and putting the finishing touches to the family ones on Christmas Eve!! lolxx

I love art deco and especially Clarice Cliffe. The colours, the patterns, just so lovely...... so when posed with what theme to choose for a 4cm2 challenge what else??? must say it did start the "what's the difference between art deco and art nouveau?" debate.
So, here are my attempts. Each square is based on a Clarice Cliffe Bizzare pattern copied from one of my books - well, I say copied, shall we say with my drawing abilities, lightly based!! lolxx TFL

In my intro I said that I like to try most crafts, so here are a few of my first attempts at scrapping. I must admit to being overwhelmed by the size - I never quite seem to get it right. I have met some lovely scrapping buddies thro' my attendance of the Papermaze crops - although I will say that, apart from my first visit, I have never finished a page!! back me up girlies! lolxx
If you knew my Sian you'd know what a tomboy she is! so a page for the shoes was a must, as well as journalling the purchasing of them, which was a real laugh! poor ol' Sian!!
My Josh is the one with the ball in the two action shots.
And last but not least my precious Ty!

I enjoy forum challenges, making me think outside my usual comfort zone and trying something different. A recent challenge was to make some charms - having never attempted this before it took several attempts before anything looked even remotely passable! There are beads threated onto the wire which isn't that clear in the picture - I must say that, not normally a patient person!, they took ages and would often flick off the end getting buried in the depths of the kitchen!! I was definately going to be the winner in this instance tho!! lol
A forum friend recently obtained some little watchmakers tins, courtesy of Katy's Corner she then organised a swap to send the altered little tins to a swap buddy. Here is my attempt. I'm afraid that the photography isn't that good, but, I leave that sort of thing to other members of the family - as you can see here, My Look at Nature.
