Where's my tree?

So I have spent most of the day looking for the Xmas box which has all the decorations and tree we'll I have found a bag a treasured baubles but the tree no! Tinsel no! Xmas banner no! Lights no! I have a feeling I have mistakenly threw them out during my move!!!!!! Just picture a look or horror and that is me right now!
But I made a couple of stockings 


These were kits I got from Wilkos in the  sale in January very quick and simple!
Right off tree hunting again wish me luck! Happy crafting

Felt bauble decorations

I've been sewing again!
Here are my two bauble felt tree decorations. I am making my own this year I gave away are the plastic ones in my new year spring clean and set myself the task if making my own why? Did I do this well in January it sounded doable well now it seems like a mountain to climb! But I will get as many as I can done even if I'm sewing Xmas eve and hangin them on the tree as I go!


I am thinking of using Xmas dies to cut the felt as it might make it quicker will let you know how that goes.
Hope you are all warm and crafting away

Any idea on names?

So it's dark wet an windy in Cornwall today so made a shaker card to get me moving about lol this is holiday Anya too cute I used glitter gell pens to colour her in for a change and put Martha Stewart glitter stars inside the circle shaker I had forgotten how much fun shaker cards were lol I used a shaped card from my stash and embossed it using crafters companion elegance 6x6 folder wrapped some stampin Up real red grosgrain ribbon around and also made a bow and stuck a couple of green gems on too! Finished it using some peel offs I found in the bottom of my craft tote! Don't know how long they have been there lol
