Crafting in 2011

*crafting in 2011*
it was a funny old year for me craftwise
i just really lost my way
and had little enthusiasm for making things
i really loved this bag i made as part of the Tim Burton swap
i really struggled to get going on this swap
but in the end i loved what i made
i still have no idea if the recipient liked what i sent
at last contact, before the american summer break
the parcel had arrived but had not been opened
i am still yet to receive my swap parcel . . . . .
i made these for the Crafter...oo button swap
i must make some more . . . .
nom nom nom :)
i had a spark of inspiration in September
when i made a handful of these pendants
and finally in November my crafty sparkle came back
just in time for the festive season!
which led to me making kitschy wreathes and baubles covered in glitter!
in 2012 i'm hoping to carry on with the dolly dress making
that i started in 2011
i find the handstitching very relaxing and something i can pick up
whilst the kids are happy playing and put down quickly when all hell breaks loose!!!
hope all my readers have a very happy and crafty 2012
