Back again after leaving the snippet playground gates open for a whole two weeks .. .. and what a busy two weeks they have been.
Lots of "happy couples" to meet up with and lots of wedding and Christmas work .. .. plus of course the family "label day" last Sunday LOL!! What fun that was (as always). Strange how it always falls on X-Factor Final Day .. .. .. even though we don't plan it that way!!
Then today is hubby's birthday .. . thank you for all his birthday wishes. I have passed them all on and he says "thank you"!!!
So just a couple of snippet makes this week .. .. it seemed weird not going into the Christmas stamp box:
Time now to call the register of all the lovely playmates who kept me company over the last two weeks:
Irene got off to a good start and shared three lovely makes that you can find here
Then along came Jackie
who share a vast array of inspration that she had made to take to a school fayre. I hope that she sold them all and didn't have to bring them home again!!
called by the playground next with a card that carries a really gorgeous image that would be suitable for so many different type of cards .. .. male and female.
The next playmate to arrive was Sylvia
who shared the most gorgeous tree .. .. along with an extra special heart!!! I don't think I have ever managed to share a heart this red and sparkly ever!!! Love it!!! Sylvia sounds mega organised for Christmas so perhaps this is an early Valentine make?!?!? LOL!!
called by next with a fantastic idea for a gift or money holder for hanging on the Christmas tree. Great use of snippets and a fantastic sentiment stamp too. There might just be time to make a few of these ahead of next week!!
was the next playmate to visit the playground carrying a lovely array of Christmas tags/labels for her presents. I am pleased to say that label day in the House of Hearts definitely reduced the snippet collection .. .. so much so that the little drawers actually close now!! Woo hoo!! Sandra put lovely ribbons on her labels .. .. we just put cord on ours .. .. I think ribbon will be making an appearance next year as Sandra's look lovely.
A very organised Elizabeth
called by with lovely snippet makes next (though Elizabeth doesn't feel organised compared to me she certainly is because when these lovely creations made an appearance my tree was still in the roof space!!). Elizabeth used some of her snippets for making tree decorations .. .. very clever!! So as Elizabeth's decorations were ready she decorated her tree. But then later in the week Elizabeth called by again with even more decorations
(one of them being a special button laden one). If there hasn't been serious snippet reduction in Elizabeth's craft space then there is no hope for any of us!!
So, from an organised Elizabeth to a very hyperactive Hazel
.. .. who managed to make 40 Christmas cards (don't worry she hasn't share them all !!! Though it would have been nice). I am sure Hazel's snippet mountain must have reduced considerably after a mammoth crafting session like this!!
is the last one on my register this week with a lovely Christmas card that is just perfect for a young lady. I think I can remember having legs that long once!! I was definitely that skinny once!! What on earth happened?!?!?!? LOL!!!
I have added Mr Linky below .. .. but I am not really expecting anyone to have time to take part .. .. it is here "just in case" someone gets the snippet urge. There are far too many Christmas preparations happening in everyone's house and home I am sure.
The gates will close on Friday 23rd ahead of the Christmas celebrations and I will call the register then (if anyone had time to turn up) LOL!!!
Of course my year of snippet use is nearly complete and it is nearly time to reveal exactly how many snippets I still have in my collection .. .. and then my playground gates will be closing. My year will be complete.
But this has caused a little bit of upset in the playground and one particular playmate was so distraught that I have said I will hand the playground keys over to her. So snippets will continue!!! But who is taking the keys off me? You will have to wait and see LOL!!!
Have a great week everyone.
Hubby has requested his favourite meal of Spag Bol, Garlic Bread and Red Wine for this evening so I am off to get cracking with that now .. .. and then hopefully I will have time for a blog catch up tonight. I am mega behind!!!
PLAYGROUND GATES CLOSE FOR CHRISTMAS
