Creativity, Children, Community Charity, Craft.....Collapse!

So why is it a month since I last blogged?

Overall, my health has undoubtedly been better this year than it has been for many years. I've thoroughly enjoyed building up my strength and being able to be more creative and social. However, a few weeks ago the good health spell ended after an intense infection and the MS reaction to it knocked me completely off my feet. This is why I had to pull out of the AEDM 2012 challenge and haven't been online. I'm still recovering but am much better than I was. Anyhow, I wanted to do a blog post to say hi and to show some photos of all the creative activities I was doing before I got too ill to do anything. Here goes a photo story..............

a few finished cards

My messy work space (aka kitchen table)

To be honest this was the tidy version - my family had to eat on trays in the living room for at least a week :-)

Piecing together my decoupage mandalas ready for card making

In between crafting for craft sale I was creating for my daughter's Birthday. As you can see my cat, Alfie, was very helpful!?

Another finished mandala card


and the matching mandala pendant



My daughter wanted me to make a Tatty Teddy Birthday cake

A gift for my friend's 11 year old mad-on-swimming daughter

I also made this charm bracelet for her. I found these cute swimmers on ebay and then created some beaded charms myself.

And I made matching earings
  
This gives you an idea of some of the creative activities I was busy with before the infection and MS got the better of me. Once I feel well enough I shall put some of my new designs in my etsy shop. Meanwhile, if there's anything you like especially let me know & if its not already in there I can try adding it into my etsy shop for you or sell to you direct using Paypal. Just be aware that I'm not checking my emails daily at the moment.

Christmas is coming and I hope with lots more (boring) rest I shall have enough creative cheer by then.

  • How are you finding the busy pre- holiday season? 
  • What have you been creating in November and December?

Wishing you all creative cheer during the festive season!!
