 Have been rather obsessed with the Tim Holtz Pocket Envelope die, and have made dozens of birthday cards ready for sending.  

Decided to do my Christmas cards this year using the same pocket envelope die, so have already made loads of these ready for Christmas.   Not sure that Christmas in May is a good idea, but they are done now, and can get on with my journaling.

 Hello, I've been away for a while, but now hopefully I am back and doing things again.  This is an Index card collection I am doing, one a day and hope to keep it going for 100 days, similar to the journal I did.
 These Index cards are for a swap for June, I love doing these, a great size to work with.
Now over to Julia's place to see what everyone has been creating recently.

 Hi Everyone,
On my desk this week is the automata that John and I have been making, although he has done all the clever stuff like making the Moon and the moving mechanism, and it is down to me to dress the figure and do all the painting.  
 Am working on the finishing touches to the eye, and hope to have this done and put in the eye socket of the Moon later today.  The eye then closes, the Moon's tongue sticks in and out, and the figure plays the mandolin and moves his head from side to side.
This will be my least favourite thing to do, painting the cloud.  ThisnkI will have to go for a stipple effect somehow.
I am so thrilled with this automata, as I have always wanted one but never seen one for sale, so we diceded to have a go and make one of our own.
Now over to Julia's place to see what everyone has been up to. Happy WOYWW

 Hello fellow crafters, have been away from WOYWW for a few weeks, but am now back in my craft room, and busily working.   In the background you can see the Advent Village I have just finished.  The idea was in this months Craft Stamper, and I loved making it much that I decided to make another one using the little Stampotique character stamps.

Three finished houses ready for the Stampotique village.

The first five houses for the Christmas Advent Village.   Now over to Julias place at stamping ground to see what everyone has been doing.  Happy WOYWW to everyone.

 Can't believe it's Wednesday again so soon, but the good news is that we can  pop over to Julia's place to see what everyone has been up to.
This week I have been working on some Tim Holtz style tags for a swap.  There will be 12 tags put together as a small book and used as a mini journal next year.  Just have to add string to the shaped end.  Several people are in the swap, so all our pages will be from different people.

 Finished my October Tim Holtz tags, so they are ready to be posted off.   Enjoyed this one.

 Even more tags!  Have been playing with an Andy Skinner stencil, and done three different takes on the face.
Another Andy Skinner stencil, I like his stencils, and think I will use this one a lot.
Well, that's what I have been doing in the craft room this week, now over to stamping.ground to see what you have been up to.   Happy WOYWW
