Christmas card crazy crafting

Christmas card crazy crafting

I have eventually managed to pull myself free from the gigantic amount of ”stuff” I have out on my table, working away for hours every day like a little elf, in the midst of card, felt, beads, cotton scraps, pom-poms, buttons and sequins, whilst I have been making Christmas cards. As ever I like to be a bit different when making things and cards are no exception, normally cards are not my thing, but at Christmas I do have a go, in my own way!

This is the second batch of cards I have made, just when I thought I would be ready for the craft fairs coming up at this time of year, My mum asked if she could take some to show people at the flats where she lives. I asked which ones she wanted to take and her reply was,

” Well as you don’t need then for a few weeks I might as well take them all in the box you’re storing them in, a couple of people might want to buy one, you never know!”

So off my Mum toddled with my 40 or so cards, I thought I might be lucky and sell one or two, but didn’t hold my breath as I was tidying my table for the next creative moment. Later that day, my Mum phoned and said

”You better make a few more cards!” When I asked if she had sold a few, her reply was ”No! I’ve sold them ALL!!”

Needless to say I stopped tidying my table and set to again for this batch. Just in case anyone might be interested I have put a couple of packs on My Etsy shop

as well as hiding the others from my Mum!

Below is a small selection of some of the Christmas cards and decorations I have been craftily creating 🙂
