It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas #9

Last night i came home to find some festive snowflakes decorating one bedroom doorframe!

Had it snowed inside?

Were we in the midst of a blizzard?

Had Santa come early?

Was Jack Frost visiting?


Georgia and Piper had made these out of normal A4 scraps. By tracing a CD to get a circle template, they then cut around it. Fold the circle into quarters and cut random shapes from the folded circle. Unfold and voila! A beautiful snowflake.

Georgia's tips -
1. To get more intricate designs you can fold it smaller than quarters.

2. Vary circle sizes for added effect. Use dinner plates or side plates to trace for guidance.

3. use very thin fishing line or mono poly clear thread to hang your snowflakes. You can barely see the thread and it really looks like they are hanging in space or snowing!

Colour Challenge - Trish

Hi Amanda
Here's my very late take on your wonderful colour challenge. The only yellow
I have used had been in the photo and I included a smidge of black. I'm
really happy with how the Kraft came up. Thanks girls.
Trish S

WOW Trish. Love how you have just used the yellow in the photo - it really packs a punch and draws you in.

You are the queen of kraft scrunching and love love love how it looks here!! And fabulous splats! Great use of the hessian for a masculine embellishment. Awesome stuff.

Retreat payment reminder ...

the due date for payment was yesterday ... either a deposit or full payment.
