Christmas Day Crackers

This year I was responsible for making the christmas crackers. 
I took on a theme of cartoon-styled paper cut motifs on individually decorated papers. No two were the same!
Each cracker contained a snapper, chocolate, a balloon, a scratch card, a joke, and lots of stamped stars which went everywhere!

Here's how I wrap…

Individualised wrapping on Christmas presents this year. I particularly enjoyed decorating the wrapping paper myself.

Craft Night!

My friend came round and we had a fantastic craft night together! She made birthday cards with letter stamps and paper collages, and I made this patterned heart cutout card as a sympathy card for friends (a couple) at a very sad time. It felt very nourishing to share this evening with a friend.

Mum's birthday 2015

Mum's surprise birthday treat was a trip to Coronation Street. Using the cobbles as inspiration, I made her card based on this pattern: 

I also wanted to make a necklace based on a design we had seen in a high street store. 

I'm really pleased with how it turned out!

10k run fundraising for Anthony Nolan

I signed up to be a stem cell donor for Anthony Nolan. 
It costs them £100 to register a new donor. So I made an effort to get a little of that back for them by doing a bake sale at work and doing Run Norwich 10k. I raised £37, which is some way towards recovering their costs. I'm not finished yet though…!
