Sentiment Hearts

Good morning - well it's morning here in the UK!!!  Surprisingly the sun is out today after several days of wet and windy weather so I may even venture out later!  I really don't like it when the weather starts to get cold, Winter is my least favourite season!  I am dreading the snow and ice, I tend to stay at home when that comes as I'm always worried about falling over.  Good thing that I can always find plenty to keep me occupied!

I've been making some more of my sentiment hearts - not sure if I've posted about these before but they are quite popular!

Here are the latest ones

All available to buy for £4.00 each plus postage over on my Bumble Bee's Craft Den Facebook page.  Pop on over and have a look, you will find them in the album entitled 'Hearts'.  Lots of other different ones there too that can be made up to order.  As well as UK addresses, I can also post to the US and Canada.

Thanks for stopping by!

Yo Yo Christmas Trees

I saw these cute little fabric Christmas trees over on Pinterest and thought I'd make a few to take to the Christmas Market with me!!  They are made from fabric yo yos.  I used this tutorial to make mine, it's very easy to follow!

I used a broomstick cut up for the base instead of cotton reels - I could not bear to part with any of my wooden cotton reels I'm afraid!!!

Flannel Reindeers Christmas 2013

Brrr the weather is really turning chilly in the UK.  Winter is definitely on it's way!! 

Well the flannels reindeers are still very popular and have been featured in lots of places.  I have made a batch of them for a local Christmas market that I will be doing at the end of November.  Luckily, I still had some brown flannels (face cloths) as they are not in Wilkinsons this year!  I used red pipe cleaners as I already had some of these in my stash as well!

Here is this year's reindeer

I made some cute labels using kraft card and I used my reindeer quick kutz die to make some little reindeer heads to stick onto the labels.

I only made 9 reindeers as I didn't have anymore of the cloths in brown but it is enough to take to the Christmas market!!

Don't forget if you would like to have a go at making these yourself, there is a tutorial on my blog to show you how!
