Here are a few more stick pins Ive been making. I will be including some of these in the 6 blog candies I am giving away, so if you havent got your name down and you were one of my 301 original followers, get your name down on the Candy post before the 20th January 2012.
Sadly the camera doesnt bring out the detail on some of the beautiful beads, but they still look pretty. These ones are a little more dainty and elegant I feel than the more flamboyant ones in the previous stickpin post. I think these would be more suited to cards and altered items like pretty boxes and jewellery boxes.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Ours is still going on. We are off to my In-laws today for some tasty nosh and a bit of craic and then to my parents tomorrow for even more food and craic! I'll end up as stuffed as the Turkey on Christmas day!! I love going to family events, should it be with my lot or Scrubby's lot, I always have great craic. So the pavlova is in the oven doing its thing....hopefully it will carry on doing its thing and not collapse on me! Though I havent had one yet thats collapsed......but there is a first time for everything.
Anyway, here are the stickpins.
That is it for now my friends. I hope you are all hitting the sales and getting loads of great crafty bargains. If you find any great deals.....dont forget to let me know, lol.
Ohhhh before you go.....look......perfect Pavlova straight from the oven. There is no cream on it yet, obviously. But its massive! You probably cant tell from the photo but its at least 2 1/2 - 3 inches thick!! Yummy. It'll be gorgeous smothered in fluffy fresh whipped cream....hmmmmmm.......scrummy!
|That is one thick Pavlova!! It'll look massive once the cream is on it!|
Thats my lot for today. Hope you all have a wonderful day, whatever you get up too. And if you are out and about visiting, be safe on the roads. I dont know about where you all are, but Northern Ireland is kicking up a storm out there. The wind is very......windy!!
