It's Friday xxx

It's Friday again!!!
Apparently the happiest day of the year... Did anyone feel happier today than they have in the rest of the last 6 months????

Chris decided she would tag me and I must show picture number 6 in my 6th album

This is one of my dads school attendance certificates he was awarded at school.... My dad never took a day off even when he didn't have any shoes to his feet.
... Sadly Dad is no longer with us, he passed away 10yrs ago, I still miss himloads .xx

Happy Father's day for Sunday to all those wonderful dads out there.

So what have we here...
I finally finished the sewing machine.... Firstly I coated it in Alcohol inks which I bought from Karen at Scrapz over HERE and then I decorated the machine with Lisa's Altered Art sewing images, I love her images, why not check them out by clicking on her button on the right.

The completed sewing machine is now A DOOR STOP.... lol.

And as promised another bracelet.

Have a great weekend love Chriss x

Happy Monday

Hello and a Happy Monday....
doesn't the week fly? before you know it we are a week closer to Christmas...oh, sorry about that...every year I say that the year went fast and I am convinced that 2009 has already gone faster than other years...Do you know it's only 5 more pay days to Christmas!!!

Over on the our ATC blog HERE we had a challenge to recycle an old Calendar here are my ATC's for the said challenge.

The backgrounds are all Cosmo Cricket's fab papers and the images are from the 2005 Ordinary Women Calendar.... I just adore those images.
...sooooo much fun.

The second picture of my mini sewing machine... (see post below) Hope to get it finished to post the completed project for Wednesday...why not pop back then and see another of my bracelets too.
Have a great week
Love Chriss x

Altered sewing machine

Hello I am back.... however, still not over my awful bout of flu I have gone through boxes of mansize tissues. I have sneezed, caught it, killed it and binned
Take a look at this cute as cute ATC the image is another of LAA isn't she lovely...I hear a song coming
I managed to make this before my mini sewing machine give up the ghost sounding in soooo much pain....
well I put the SM in the bin... took it out...put it back in the bin...and out again...

This is it before I started doing things to know me...come back in a couple of days and see it when it's finished,
Below are 2 bracelets I made when my puter was in hospital...the top one was sold last of my fave ones at that.

The one below is going to a craft fair at the end of June.

AAAACHOOO got to go and get myself to bed...I have read Fern Brittons book and am now halfway through Collen Nolans as I have been tucked up in bed most of the last 3 days...but have to get up to make my own chicken broth.
love Chriss x
