What a crazy busy week!

It's been a crazy busy week for me and there's not been much time for crafting, but this weekend I hope that will all change *fingers crossed*.

Have you seen the 30 day crafting challenge over Crafter's Companion's Facebook Page and Instagram?

Today we are on day 4 and here is my #CCNOVCRAFTCHALLENGE photo.
My neat and tidy Spectrum Noir pens

Why not join in too? You could win a voucher to spend over at the Crafter's Companion Website. :-)

I'm also taking part in another crafting challenge;
A group of my paper cutting friends are taking part in a challenge that we call "The Twelve Days Of Christmas".
This has evolved from the secret Santa that we have all enjoyed over the past few years. We are paired up on Elfster, ask our elf anonymous questions to then find a suitable gift (£10 max), send and then make our unwrapping videos on Christmas Eve to share with the rest of the group. It has always been great fun, especially watching the unwrapping of gifts *exciting*.

Anyway, this year we have added a twist and more of a crafting challenge to our secret Santa:
12 months to make 12 handmade gifts for your elf.
It can be anything and any craft, the challenge is to learn and try out as many new crafts as we can.

It's been fun so far, with LIVE 'how to' demos on Facebook, lots of idea posts, heaps of encouragement and support. We're all learning new crafty skills, some of which haven't turned out as well as we would like, but at least we are all trying and a lot of love is going into our gifts, which is what really counts.

My elf doesn't have a clue as what I am making and probably has never seen my blog (well it is new), so I'm going to share a few of my makes and ideas here with you, along with some of my other crafty makes and DT samples.

I also need to have a think about my own personal Christmas card design to send out this year (if it ever happens). I have been totally rubbish with this over the past few years with so much going on in my life, but *fingers crossed*  I hope that I can manage to pull something out of the bag this year.

Lastly, before I sign off tonight, I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Sam Healey for saving my sanity after I totally failed to add my Design Team badges (blinkie links) to my side bar last night. Like they say "It's easy once you know how". I didn't have a clue and was looking and pasting links in totally the wrong place. I am now at peace with my blinkies so all is good :-)

Goodnight :-)
