~ It's finally finished ... ~


... and just in the nick of time! Just long enough to fill the boxes ready for the first of December!


This embellishment was actually destined for our garland but I decided it would be perfect for my advent calendar and would actually tie it in to our Christmas decore very well. It was a piece I bought from Hobbycraft to add to our Marks and Spencer Garland. I think it was only 99p ... a bargain! I simply trimmed the wire stalk with my clippers and stuck it in place with some silicone glue.

This week has been so hectic! I had 2 lunch dates, a coffee morning, a day of shopping and my first Christmas meal of the season. I doubt next week will be any better as I need to get my homemade xmas pressies made and decorated.

Happy Crafting!

It's absolutely beautiful. I think I want one too even though I don't do Christmas. I'd better not show this to DD or she'll want a Chanukkah calendar
