Christmas Presents

It is such a wonderful time of year. I have been rather busy with many projects in the making as presents, and dealing with family life problems etc etc

Today I can share a special gift I made for a beautiful woman, who for many years has assisted one of my daughters with taking charge of her four young children when needed. I knew this woman, loved shabby chic, through her many posts I had seen popping onto my screen in social media.

Firstly I painted the shoe to help as a base for adhering all the lace. Initial layer was an all over lace, Next step became various pieces of different laces that I have collected through second hand stalls, flea markets on travels and cut out pieces and adhered to the shoe. I have used flat back Pearls to cover the eyelets for lacing and also covered the heel in the same flat back Pearls. After I finished layering various laces, I then filled the inside up with stuffing, adhered some felt over the top and added some hat pins as decoration.

I had no idea how this boot would look when finished, I had no plan, I just retrieved the box of laces and let my fingers and glue do the work.

The present has been given, I asked her to open, but what I didn't expect were the tears that flowed. This woman fell in love and was exactly the perfect gift to have given her.

New Arrivals and Restocks

There has been lots happening in the USA of late with lots of companies selling out to American Crafts. Bazzill Basic Paper Company is one of those companies, a sad time but we have all been assured that American Crafts will still be providing these cardstocks. Some of the cardstock is unavailable with the changes happening but I can say we now have black (Raven) and white cardstock back instock.

Many of you will also be aware that Brother have released a machine Scan N Cut. Yes, I love the machine. We can now scan in our stamped work, photos etc and then cut them out. It is also great for cutting of fabric, thicker cardstock and of course paper. I have cut vinyl, magnetic attachments and wood veneer.  Now this machine does use consumables eg, blades, mats, pens. I will be stocking these in the near future, just about to send my order through. For anyone cutting fabric I would suggest using some Aleene's Tack It Over and Over Glue on your fabric before cutting. This is now available.

Shabby Chic Treasures have arrived from Prima Marketing Inc, more coming soon.
