Christmas Pudding Mints

Christmas Pudding Mint Tree Decorations
I wish I could say this was my idea, but it’s not …it came from a brilliant crafter, who has an equally brilliant blog -  Never would I have thought of Christmas puddings when making decorated Elizabeth Shaw mints with my Stampin’Up punches.  So thank you Karen for such an inspired idea.

My Festive Phone

Since it’s December I’ve decided to change the charms on my phone ….!!  How sad am I?

I’ve used phone charm lariats from Hobbycraft to attach them.  The jingle bells are from a pack of small bells from Paperchase, wonder how long it will take for them to get on my nerves?
Christmas Phone Charms
The snowman was from a pack of small Christmas tree decorations.  They cost far too much in Wolverhampton’s House of Fraser but I have been eyeing them up for ages and finally my patience was rewarded when they were reduced to half price ……

And my phone will keep lovely and warm in it’s new sock!  I didn’t make, it was a present from the PE Lady at work (not to be mistaken for the PE Lady’s Mum).  I love it!  She gave me the pattern, so if I have any requests I’ll add it to a post.
