AHHHH I'M A CLEVER TART!

I loved the heart shaped buttons I bought recently at a craft fair... and wanted more... so I made my own. They worked out costing me $1.16 each to make... compared to $4-5 each at the fair. SCORE. I made the green ones a bit thin... live and learn. I've not used this Sculpting/bake-it in the oven stuff before.

AND I know you are all just dying to see the finished Christmas Tree! So... there it is! No Cross or Angel on the top either! I went for a big bow! TOTALLY CHOICE. I'm really proud of my tree.

Today... well I shall try to do some of that weeding... and some sewing too.... and the spare bedroom needs tidying up AGAIN.. it is the 'dumping ground' in this house. *sigh*

ONWARD...

I went to Weight Watchers this morning... had a big gain. That's all I have to say about that. EXCEPT... at least I went?

End of Day: it's been a nice afternoon.. I sunbathed, then the kids and I visited my aunt.. pleasant evening too... time to sign off. nite nite.

  6. Nice tree! Are you sure you have finished? I can still see some green! It really does look good, though, and kudos on thinking of a bow instead of an angel or star. Very original and it really works!

    Nice buttons, too. That's a great idea! Imagine what else you can make....
