Here are some Baubles I made for family and friends for Christmas, ( that is to say I made the bead decorations on them, not the baubles themsleves, glass blowing isn`t in my skill set just yet ! LOL )
I bought two kits from the NEC in November of this year and have spent every spare minute I had when I wasn`t making Chrissy cards sewing the 1600 beads that each bauble takes !
The larger of the three and the gold one were made up out of the kits and the gold and red smaller one I made with the beads I had left over from the kits, plus some bell beads I`ve had for a while. The bead kits are from the spellbound bead company and they have a whole selection of beautiful jewellery kits, check out their website here
This is the "Swags and Tails " kit in Gold
This is the "Anatolia" kit in Red and Gold
This Swags and Tails one is made up of the beads I had left over from the kits plus the little glass bell shaped beads which are La Fourmi from Carole`s Crafts.
Now that Christmas is all but over with, I can get back to some card making. I have two cards to make for my best friends twins Alex and Charlotte, who have a birthday in early January who will be 7 years old, I don`t often get a chance to make children`s cards as most of my nieces and nephews are growing up so quickly !
Well I`d best get on with it as they`ve got to be made and posted out by wednesday,
bye for now and a Happy New Year to all my friends and followers xx
