Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...


Salt dough ho ho ho

Not sure what has happened but suddenly (after a brief hiatus) 
my chrimbly crafting mojo has kicked in. 
I say 'brief' but I suspect it has been at least three or four years 
I have felt as if wading against the incoming tide through every December. 
Today I am making salt dough decorations. The oven is full of stars, fir trees and stockings gently drying. Later today when they have cooled I will paint and varnish them.
 I can not believe the pleasure I got from the making and baking of this (big) kid friendly craft.
But now I am back finishing off my stock for the final Christmas fayre of the year. 
So there are drift wood santas waiting for a final coat of paint on the back half of them, 
little wooden tree decorations waiting to be bagged up. 
Hand printed wrapping paper waiting for a final drift of festive stamps being added - 
it is a bit like Santa's grotto in here today! 

 Don't forget tomorrow will be 'Five on Friday - Gratitude', 
I'll add the link up button at the bottom of my post - 
till then - have a lovely Thursday!


  1. Hooray for getting in the mood!!!!

    "Good King Wenceslas looked out
    On the feast of Stephen,
    When the snow lay round about
    Deep and crisp and even."
