Crafting Mojo

Yesterday I had the pleasure of Fee's youngest daughter for company. We had our crafting mojo happening and made altered tags, canvas art and even managed a few scrapbook pages. Here's the tags I made...




Thanks for the company Miss A, I enjoyed being creative with you. I'm sure Fee will show some of Miss A's work on her blog.

Talking about the lovely Fee, here's the xmas pressie she made for me
The chocolates vanished quickly and the pretty doily now sits proudly on my bedside table. The thread will come in handy on a future project and the babushka pencil case holds my treasured pens. Thank-you Fee!!

Only a few more days left of my annual leave, the new craft room is coming along slowly, took us three days to strip the wallpaper and the walls need replastering now. I've managed to read 3 books during the holidays, have done a little stitching but the next few days I plan to do more so I better get to it!
Catcha Later!

She had a wonderful time and is well and truly paper craft hooked. She thinks the world of you too and thinks your one in a million - But I already knew that LOL. Thanks for giving her a lovely day. Hugs - Fee XX

Hi Jo
How nice to spend some time with a youngster crafting, would love to see what she made. The doily looks really pretty and the chocolates looked even prettier!
Good luck finishing your craft room!

Hi Jo, so good to hear you have had a nice break and that you have been spoilt. I am back from holidays and having a much needed stop in Perth. I am back at work and hopefully I can get a blog up (been naughty but have found it so hard). I love looking at your site, I get inspiration and so excited when you see what people are up to. The fire must have been very scary, we've had the big fire in Margaret River late last year, it was so devasting. Stay safe, happy holidaying and good luck for the New Year xxx Meg

I love your babushka pencil case. I need to get one of those. I have pencils all over my sewing room.

Happy stitching,

Awesome tags Jo. Good to hear that the younger generation are willing to forgo electronic entertainment.
Gorgeous gifts too.
Hmmmm striping, plastering, painting. That all sounds very familiar.

Hi! I came here via the universal craft blog directory. Love your tags and quilt. I had to go back to work this week too. How dare work interfere with our crafty projects ;)
