Away so long...

Wow, I didn't realise I had been gone quite so long. A two week camping trip, the busyness of returning from a 2 week break and then a horrible cold/flu/something or other that I am still trying to shake off two weeks later. Suddenly it is almost halloween and so I have settled down to making some christmas decorations, obviously.

A trip to Hobbycraft for some foam pads and DST and I found myself coming home with one polystyrene cone, one polystyrene ring and a pack of 30 Fab Foam snowflakes. And without the DST - doh!
So far I have a tree covered in punched circles of DCWV papers from the Christmas Wishes stack and decorated with Papermania Sparkling Trims held on with sequins and pins. I just need to paint the aerosol cap trunk which I'll do as soon as I find where I put my gold paint!

An almost completed wreath made from curled strips from an ancient Papemania Paper Pack inspired by this one on the Bo Bunny blog by Juliana Michaels (oh to be able to justify making a wreath from such scrummy papers).

Right now, because my brain is feeling fuzzy and I can't manage anything more taxing, I am adding glitter glue to the Fab Foam snowflakes. Hopefully they'll look pretty hanging in my windows come Christmas time.

Finally, a bit of cuteness from our camping trip...
