Hello there I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I am away so I am blogging from my IPad and won't be long, but I wanted to show you a few things I have been busy with.
I have done some more felting, this time slippers and a wearable neck piece called lariat. I am enjoying felting and it helped me a lot on my quest to make as many Christmas presents as I can this year.

And just because this is a paper crafting blog I am also sharing one of the Convention makes n takes.

I loved this card and the first day after getting back home from Paris I made 36 of these to send to my downline that couldn't attend. It uses the beautiful set Creative Elements and a colour combo of Old Olive, Island Indigo and Early Espresso. I love the crimped area. Can I just point out that this was Joannes Gelnar card and she kindly allowed me to take a picture of it and offered to hold it for me outside to get a good shot of it, thank you Joanne. I did finish all my projects at Convention and will share the rest soon, I do have tons of stuff I have been making just don't seem to have two minutes to myself these days.
And when you re busy you need quick meals. I made the easiest and quickest mackerel pate in the Thermomix the other day. It took me 3 seconds once I added all the ingredients to the bowl, even though I had my machine nearly 4 months I am still amazed by it.

Can I just say if you like fish you will find this hard to resist, it is my favourite spread.

Wow! I am truly in awe and inspired Mon. The lanyard, the shawl and shoes are breathtaking - so elegant and sophisticated x

WOW for someone thats just started felting, you've certainly jumped in at the deep end with your projects! I've done some felting - wet and needle felting - but never attempted anyting on a bigger scale (though I'm inteding on trying to make a felted bag). 500 felted objects is an amazing eye candy (no instructions) book of things that have been achieved.

Wow!!! Your blog looks beautiful, and your work is amazing! I thought the card looked wonderful, and then I scrolled down and saw the mackerel pate and my mouth is really watering now!!! You are multi talented!!! :)

For someone brought up on fuzzy Felt, I am still amazed by the power of felting. Loving it!

Love those felted clogs, Monica! Where did you find the pattern or instructions? I've felted my knitting Bedford, bit nothing like those!
