Christian Mini Pillow

This is what I've been doing this weekend. I do like making these biscornu, they are so effective and easy to make, much easier than they look. This small one is approx 4" across. I've put it on ebay with the option of choosing the colourway. Fingers crossed that I manage to sell some. They would be ideal stocking fillers for Christmas

The bible verse is "This is the day the LORD made, let us Rejoice and be glad Psalm 118:24"

My very first blog award

Many thanks to Trish at Time-to-Share for sending this lovely award
Before I list the five lucky ladies that I'm passing this award to I have to give three reasons why I'm special. A hard thing to do when you're the shy, retiring type of person but anyone who knows me will be falling about laughing at that remark hehe, so here goes
1. I'm special because I am a child of God
2. I'm special because I have a wonderful husband and two fabulous children who make me feel special for having them in my life
3. I'm special because through crafting I have made some very special friends, some I've met and others I haven't but I'm glad that I know each and every one of you
Now I have to choose five special ladies to pass this award on to

A Busy Time

Where have the last 12 days disappeared to?

Not the Saturday just gone but the one before my soldier boy came home from Afghanistan woohoo!! Between now and new year he'll be flitting backwards and forwards to us at home, his girlfriend in Ireland and back at base. January he goes back to Afghanistan :o(

Then last Tuesday hubby came home from work early after spending the morning in the A&E at the Royal in Liverpool. He had an accident in work which has kept him of work until yesterday. I wanted him to have more time off but couldn't persuade him to. He's come home so tired and very much in pain but won't admit that I was right and he needed more time at home.

Michael's girlfriend came over at the weekend and I gave her the notebook, below, that I had made for her using my Bind-it-All

It was Michael's birthday yesterday and this is the card that I had made for him. I was really pleased with the way the backing paper turned out. I used Tim Holzt's distress inks and stamps from Crafty Individuals. The tags are from a Making Cards special edition for men
