Christmas Decorations

These are my wooden Gingerbread Men. The photo does not do the little guy justice. He is very cute. I personalise these with a name or greeting. I have even been known to add hairstyles to them.

New this year are these Gingerbread Cookies. Good enough to eat.

Some more cookies in the shape of little houses. Ideal for those little gifts for neighbours, or for a couple in their new home.

This is a large Christmas tree, about 10", which again can be customised as a family tree. I am trying to give more options than the simple country heart shape. I also have a wreath and a snowflake. I hope you all like them.

A Birthday Card for Emma

This is the birthday card which I made for my niece Emma. She is 19 today. The papers are Coredinations and K & Company. The image peeking out from behind is a stamp I got from Dimension Fourth of a mouse with a cupcake. The 'E' is Grunge board letter inked in versacolour Raspberry and embossed with Tim Holtz Distress Embossing powder in Tea dye. Various trims, lace and ribbon from the stash.

The rub-on on the inside is also K & Company, from the Que Sera range.

These are the 'Family Tree' wooden hearts which I made for craft fairs last year. They were 22cm in size which left lots of room for the the larger families, but which slightly dwarfed the smaller families. I am doing them again this year, but have decided to go smaller and have them at 11.5cm instead. I think this will give a better overall look. I have been beavering away madly in preparation for all of the upcoming shows.
My gingerbread men have grown this year from 10cm to 15cm! I will post a photo of them soon.
I have as any of you blog watchers will know, I have become a little bit obsessed with bird houses.

I have now made some Christmas ones. Some are snowy white and others are decoupaged sweet pictures and sugared. I love them.
