monthly craft update

A reminder of Gina's challenge -make one item for Christmas every two weeks...
well have made 3 countdown to Christmas blackboards that was first shown on CC blog here I changed it from 'sleeps' to 'days'.
The blackboards were
bought from hobbycraft, and painted with some metalic paint I already had.

A few Thank you go to...
Gina for setting the challenge... to Caroline for a great project and... to Sue-bubbles for the buttons, (as I couldn't find any locally, she very kindly went through her foof-a-La ones she had and sent me some).



I've also started on the 52 questions, where you have to answer a question every week, this blog and challenge was found by Jackie on do-crafts, photos to follow tomorrow...

well I also combined the above challenge with CC Challenge - to dig out a kit that we've had for ages and put it together, so in light of that I'm using the smaller of the 2 pads that I bought off QVC last March 08 when they were at a special price, (set of 2 Flavia punchout pads with messages, borders, alphabets and papers Peaches and Pomegranates 585751).

I think I've done pretty well last month, lets hope I can continue in Feb...
