Kindness Day – 13th November 2010

This week I was overwhelmed by the kindness of one of my followers – Marc (he’ll hate me for writing this, but tuff mate!!!). He posted a message in my “chat box” one day last week saying that  he’d like to send me a copy of Tim Holtz’s Compendium of Curiosities, a book that I  have “lusted” over for ages, he also said he might add a few other bits to his parcel.  Well, the parcel arrived on Thursday and it made me cry …… that’s all I’ll say, because I’m filling up again now as I type this,  but “Thank You Marc” ……….

Crafty Christmas Toothbrush

Remember earlier in the year when I bought these toothbrushes for 10p from Asda?

Well, this is what I have come up with using my “Sharpies” permanent pens for Christmas 2010 …..  I did post the first toothbrush I decorated a while back, it was flowery with tiny gems stuck in the centre of each flower, however, I road tested it while I was on holiday and the “Sharpies” didn’t hold out quite as well as I had hoped, so I have applied a couple of  thin layers of clear varnish to this one, which I hope will endure the vigour's of the Festive Season!

I know it’s sad and I should have better things to do ….. but what the heck ……. I am going to make a couple more and put them in two Monkey's Christmas Tut!

Bulldog Clips for Mini Calendars

A couple of people have been asking where they can get mini bulldog clips for calendars etc., last year I bought mine from this e-bay seller - and received excellent service.

He has them in yellow and pink and they cost £3.50 for 144 plus £2.24 P & P.
