Happy Christmas Eve!
I don't have a card to share today but I do have a project to share.
But before all the crafty stuff I have something much more important, to my family anyway, to share.
If you've been following my blog you'll know that on Thanksgiving week we were "hit for 6" as they say in England (it's a Cricket term" when my husband lost his job. It was completely unexpected and being just a month before Christmas we weren't sure what the New Year would bring.
But we carried on "business as usual" as much as we could, vowing to make Christmas as happy (and normal) as possible for our 3 children.
Well on Sunday we got a glimmer that something may happen and on Tuesday Andy started his new job!!!! We got our Christmas Miracle!!!
I know many of you have sent me good wishes and have been thinking and praying for us over the last month and I want to send out a huge THANK YOU to each and everyone one of you, your kind messages have meant the world to all of us.
And to the special Angel who helped with gifts, you know who you are, I Thank You from the bottom of my heart. So many people who we only know through the internet who care:)
To make this finish on another high note I want to share a little gift I made for my Mum yesterday (don't worry she won't see my blog today).
This was a totally "from scratch" gift down to an impromptu photo shoot.
I'd had the fabulous SEI paper for a while but this was the perfect project.
The photos aren't the best, they are straight from my craft table as you'll see.
I colored the flowers first with a Copic and then added gold paint on top. The pearls were changed from white to gold/cream with my Copic too.
I'd had these letters for years (yes years) and I think they were perfect for this project. I know she'll love it when she finds it under the tree tomorrow.
Have a Wonderful Christmas and again Thank You for all the thoughts and prayers, they worked and for that I'll be eternally grateful.
