It's Beginning To Look Alot Like Christmas...

Well almost.....
Last year i kinda got caught in the rush and had so many last minte orders and things to do, so i have made an executive decision to be more prepared this year.
Plus i just loooove Christmas.I love creating things with a Christmas theme, decorating my home and i looove giving prezzies. Ok i love receiving prezzies too but isnt there just something so magical about the look on someones face when they unwrap a gift that you know they will love to bits! It gives me such a warm,mushy and squishy feeling inside :) C'mon you all know that feeling.

So i have some sweet new creations that i am toying with at the moment and lots more buzzing around in my head (hmm could be whats causing the migraines). Its just finding the time to do them all. Not enough hours in the day is there.

Here are some of my creations from last year that i sold on Ebay and privately also. I will be making and taking orders for them again this year.

Cute Polka Dot Reindeer. I will have variations of them this year including ones with fabric :)

Fabric wrapped Candy Canes. I still have mine hanging on a Candlelabra in the Dining Room. They were so popular, they look really pretty on the Christmas Tree

Faux Bon Bons for your table setting, made with the prettiest fabrics and adorned with trims. These were a real hit also.

Faux Gift Boxes wrapped in pretty fabrics and trims ready to hang on the tree! Mine are still on my window ledge.

There will be plenty of Faux Lollie's/Candy's too and in some cute Christmas colours!

I think that will all help keep me busy dont you?

Now, here are some pics of the Cotton N Candy Swap i sent to the cheeky and sweet Dolly @ From My Cherry Heart. I had to pinch Miss Dollys pics for this because i forgot to take some b4 i sent her parcel !
I will post pics of my goodies when they arrive. Mmmm cant wait...candy.... :)

OK hope you enjoyed the pretty pics today. I best be off and get to work creating and painting!No time like the present right?
Hugs Always,
Shann xo

I just love all the things you make. Sooooo beautiful. Now I wish I would have done your swap. I just couldn't get my creative thinking going before....The gifts you gave Dolly are perfect. You would think of those "sweet" things.

I love all your creations they are so sweet.. I especially love your polka dot reindeer. It is so fun seeing other people decorate for Christmas in pinks and greens. I am looking to get started on my Christmas creating also. That way I can enjoy the season a little more.

She just adores her sisters 2 little darlings and will make a great Mum.Going into the delivery with her is soo.. special. I went in with Melanie(my other daughter) for her 1st baby too. It was just wonderful.
Have a great weekend.
