A Snowflake is Winter's Butterfly plus winner of my Candy

Good evening everyone, hope you are well! Sorry I have been a little quiet, have been trying to make some really different gifts and things using ribbon and trying to also get my Christmas cards started-eek! ;-) Here is one of my Christmas cards. I stamped the Snowflakes and Visible image greeting onto smooth white cardstock and heat embossed with White glittery embossing powder and then coloured this with Tim Holtz distress inks which I then sprayed water onto for little flakes. I used my favourite Bo Bunny Snowfall papers from last year as my base.

I have drawn my Candy winner from random.org and the winner is Maureen-can you please contact me on the email in my sidebar please lovely? I will be back with some more candy soon!

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
