A photo frame for Cheryle :) I know that her grandchildren are her pride and joy. And her story of her delivering her grandson in her living room floor bloth touched and tickled me. Haha.

So here's a frame with lotsa scrumptious embellies for you Cheryle, featuring your beloved grandchildren :) When you have a new photo taken with the new additions to the family, you can easily swap the photo! Merry Christmas!

12 Days of Christmas: A Gift for Joy

Joy gets 2 pressies too! The same Christmas tag that I gave Dionne, along with a bag charm. The cool thing about this charm (I feel), is that it was made from beads and charms that fell off the originals.

Let me explain. As you guys know, I have been participating in charm swaps. And each time I receive my package, I'll find that some beads and charms have fallen off the creations that the ladies sent. Well I don't know exactly where/which they fell off from, so I just set all these aside. And this charm, was made outta those stuff that fell off. I think the bulk of the main charm was made by Katie... or Sue... But I'm not sure! Will any of these talented ladies out there who's looking please come claim credit?!

I don't mean to be cheapskate!! But I thought it was a great way to recycle, plus I am stuck in the hospital with my baby so it's not like I have the time to buy new stuff! BUTTTT.... the cutie girl charm that is the centerpiece is new and handmade. And it's mighty cute right!!

12 Days of Christmas: A Gift for Dionne

Two gifts actually :) A Christmas tag and a bottle cap dragon! Isn't the dragon absolutely lovely?!! I didn't make the bottle cap dragon though, got it from a talented crafter on etsy, justJB.

Even the write up on the story of the dragonlet is cute!

"Such adorable creatures - bet you didn't know they made dragons this small, eh? At this size, it's difficult for a critter to make a home even out of branches and twigs - those are huge to an inch-high critter! So they make do with what they can scavenge.

This dragonlet has gone a step above its bottle-cap-nesting brethren and has tried to hide itself with scraps of trash. It has covered itself in various watch cogs and gears, and little metal plates, and even found a little watch winder to decorate itself with, in hopes you will look him over and think he is just some discarded refuse. He is so tiny, he is terribly nervous about humans!

He's hoping you will either look right past him, or give him a very safe place to call home!"

Take good care of him will ya Dionne! Merry Christmas!

Tash hasn't had a very good year. She has been down for a bit. Hopefully this card will cheer her up a bit. Making this card made me smile, so hopefully, by receiving it, she'll smile too! Merry Christmas and Happy 2012 Tash!

12 Days of Christmas: A Gift for Julie

A wall hanging for Julie :)

When I made a 12x12 LO for Dionne's birthday some time ago, I captioned it, "A present for a dear friend, happy birthday!" And Julie commented, "I would like to be your dear friend, and have a birthday!!! ;) Stunning, as always!!!!"

Well Julie, I kept that in mind :) You are a dear friend and you most certainly don't need to wait till your birthday! Merry Christmas Julie!

p/s: Joy is mega cute! Eating snow and all haha!

12 Days of Christmas

It's Christmas Eve! Are you done with your christmas shopping yet? I sure hope you are... Well, I'm not, haha. Cos well... my baby has been hospitalized, AGAIN. But some "good" came outta it. Well, I didn't have time to shop for presents, and there's really nothing much to do in hospital, so I MADE some presents instead! Yup, lotsa scrappy goodness!

So from tomorrow onwards, i'll be starting a "12 Days of Christmas" series. I'll be sharing a scrappy present a day, presents that I made for some of my girl friends (the guys get non-scrappy stuff, they will just get their present late) and also some minis that I made but didn't post previously. That's to make up for the lack of blogging recently haha. I've been lagging behind when it comes to blogging, but I've still been creating! So I'll now give you 12 projects in one sitting! Hehe.

Watch for the posts starting tomorrow!
