Last of my commissions

Yey....have finished my final Christmas commission.
It's a large (12") round box painted in a gorgeous deep velvet purple & covered in a lace tulle.
I made some shabby muslin & lace flowers with some lovely purple  wired ribbon for the top & added the clock face, eiffel tower, key & metal butterfly. (all of which have been painted, embossed, & gilded)
I was very tempted to add more but stopped myself. I have to remember it's for someone else....& less is more
All I have to make now are a few gift card wallets & I am done with my crafting until after Christmas.
Happy days!

This is what happens when I get bored!

Well Christmas is well & truly closing in & I have yet to finish my Christmas shopping.
I have been stuck in the house all day today & out of sheer boredom I made this wreath.
Apologies for the awful picture quality, no sooner had I finished it my mum had put it up!
I bought a couple of polystyrene wreath rings the other day for a £1 & had a roll of tulle so thought why not.
It was fun to make....may do a red one next, might get some large poinsettias.
I have also managed to finish off some Christmas projects that I am giving as presents....will post pics tomorrow.
All in all I have had a productive crafty day. Time to go & wash off all the glitter & get cracking with dinner.
Until next time....catch ya later special Llama's
