Eggshell mosaic....... I finished the packet of breakfast cereal yesterday morning so I put the empty box near the back door to take out to the recycle bin........ it didn't get that far as I had a couple of dark eggshells drying on my windowsill which I had intended to add to my eggshell stash.... Everyone has an eggshell stash don't they???   Hmm, as usual tis just me then I guess..... Anyway, before I go off on a tangent and start telling you about the gorgeous apple,raisin and fudge scone I had yesterday I will tell you about this little bit of junk art.   I cut two rectangles from the cereal box and glued them together to make the card a little stronger.  Then I cut two butterflies from a bit more of the box.  This is a craft that really does cost nothing more than a bit of glue and a lot of patience. I will go back and fill some of the more noticeable space with more shell when I have a minute today.

Here is the Inro so far.  It needs several coats of mod Podge and a couple of coats of clear varnish before I move on to the next stage. But I am really pleased with how it is turning out

Yesterday my friend Anona challenged me to make an Inro (google it).  This morning I found a little plastic bottle, a couple of red envelopes and made a start. This is a picture of inro drying.  I will decorate it once it is fully dry.  I have put a step by step with photo's on my blog if you fancy giving it a try

I am using up some of the plastic flowers and shapes that I cut from a variety of plastic bottles

I spent a little time yesterday beading around my bread clay brooch.  The end result is really pretty and to think it is nothing more than stale bread, a piece of cardboard and a handful of beads. I have sewn a brooch back onto this one but you could just as easily sew a small safety pin.

I have been making cabochons with stale bread today......... well doesn't everyone?Huh?   :-) :-)  Well not really cabochons as they clearly aren't gemstones but I intend to bead around them to make into brooches.  they feel like porcelain..

It is mincepie season and what better way to hide the evidence than to turn the little foil dishes into leaves. I am looking out for a really sturdy branch and then I plan to wire them to the branch and stick in a pot in my conservatory. Oh! and no, I didnt eat all these. It was my carving club Christmas get together last night. Someone had said that I was collecting the foil dishes (I wasnt actually). I ended up with a whole pile of them. I hadnt even thought of a project for them at that point :-)

I have been wrapping chocolate bars this morning.  I only meant to make three but got carried away.  I have been using all the tiny bits of wrapping paper that are too small for presents. Most of the embellishments have been die cut or punched from old Christmas cards or envelopes.

Well don't say I didn't warn you  :-)  The first picture shows the view into the conservatory through the sitting room window,  the second is my kitchen,  (I wallpapered the cupboard doors in the summer) we swap all the cups, tea towels, teapot and tea cosy for the Christmassy ones.  The third shows the dining table complete with the sants hat chair covers that i made on Monday..... Like I said, we love Christmas.... The hand towels and toilet rolls in both bathrooms have a Christmas theme too.  :-)  We don't have a real tree these days as we like to decorate early in December and real trees just wouldn't last.
