Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

A fowl stocking filler.

Back to the stocking fillers with one for the grown ups again. I'm really enjoying dreaming up these naughty ideas. I think this is the outcome of going to a strict all girls school,lol.

 These little bags began with a trawl of Google images where i found the turkey. You can get it HERE. I downloaded it to Picasa and added the text. These projects aren't really in need of great colouring efforts, in fact if you're short of time there's plenty of turkey clip art available already coloured in. My recipients aren't likely to actually use the stuffing mix so i bought Tesco basics at 15p for enough for 2 bags. I made 8 bags for the bargain price of 60p!
Here's a close up. The bags are the ones i use for my 6"x4" cards. I haven't made a 6"x4" card for ages as i'm much more comfortable with square ones for some reason. I can't wait to start dishing these out, child as i am,lol. The local butcher is getting one along with the chef from the local pub. The rest will go to friends  and family.
 Off to work now , see you soon.    Di.xx
