Card Crazy and Crafternoon Teas

I am determined this year to be better prepared for Christmas. I decided to give cards as gifts for a few people this year, so this meant having them made and sent, ready for them to use as Christmas greeting cards. This last week was devoted to card making. I went crazy and spent almost every spare moment making cards. I was also very happy that I used only paper and card which I already had. Some are in traditional colours and others are just using leftover bits and pieces.

Having sworn that I would not take up yet another creative interest, I started some life drawing classes last month - only of course, to help me improve my doll making. Tonight will be the fourth week of a six week course and I am really enjoying it. Ann, my teacher is great and  has classes for beginners and the more experienced. Look on  Facebook the drawing room . These are some of my drawings from last week's lessons.
And, I almost forgot - Happy Halloween to blog friends particularly in the northern hemisphere. Having said that, Halloween seems to becoming more popular here is Australia. My grandchildren had a party - complete with costumes, spooky party games and a ghostly pinata. Alas I forgot to take my camera Perhaps some photos next week from the family.  

Reminder about my Summer "Crafternoon Teas" on Sundays - happening soon. A crafternoon tea is an afternoon where like minded people get together to create and enjoy a scrumptious afternoon tea. The first is on 14 Novermber, and it will be one of the Felt Fun Days... learning new ways with plastic templates. Contact me is you're interested.
