Joshua's christingle!

Today was Joshua's school christingle! We took bags of oranges in for them to make their christingles with at school and Joshua could tell me what all the parts of the christingle meant. Christingle is one of my favourite christmas events. I love that everyone comes together to celebrate and we all sing together and light our candles. The smell in our church is amazing once they are all lit! It's a real family event too and has become tradition for his Nana (my husbands mother) to join us in celebrating too. I hope you enjoys the pics!

Bath bombs!

I was so excited about the CCBox 6 kit that I had to make it straight away! It was super easy to do and smells great! I wrapped it up in layers of pink tissue paper and used the white wool from the box to secure it. Then added a pink flower embellishment to finish! Perfect little extra gifts for christmas!

Pom-Pom book mark

My little boy loved this! He is a very keen reader so I decided to make him a book mark. I used the wool from CCBOX 6 to make the Pom-Pom and some Christmas cards stock to compliment the white snow ball like Pom-Pom. I love how it's turned out!

Joshua sending out Christmas wishes!

I love how creative my little boy is and this year he wanted to write all his Christmas cards himself! No so little any more!

Wisbech Christmas Fair!

Today was my towns Christmas fair. It was a lovely day and great to see the whole town coming together getting into the Christmas spirit! There were lots of stalls full of Christmas gifts and Christmas food! Children from some of our towns schools sang Christmas carols. We saw santa, a clown and made friends with two men on stilts! There were bands and music playing all day and my little Summer-Rose even had a dance! The best part of the day for myself were the reindeer! We even got to feed them and it made the whole day even more Christmassy! I hope you enjoy the pictures. What does your town do for Christmas?

CCBOX 6....Ice Ice Baby!

It's that time again and I have received my crafty creatives box 6 and the theme is Icy! It couldn't be more perfect for the time of year an was exactly what I needed this month to finish off my Christmas crafting!

Its hard to believe i have been receiving this wonderful box for six months! I don't know how Claire and Isobel do it but every month the boxes are getting better and better and the kit in this box is definitely my favourite so far! I'd like to just say a huge thank you to them both and wish them a very happy christmas and look forward to what the new year will bring to our boxes!

So... What's in the box???

•Art card - this months art card is by Eleanor Carter (
• CC Kit - make a bath bomb! I am do excited about this! And who knew it was so easy to do! I have so many ideas for this kit and how to put my own twist on it!
• Sheet of snowflake stickers - perfect! I am a bit of a peel-off hoarder so my eyes lit up when I saw these!
• Two glass drop pendants
• Bag of icy glass beads - these are beautiful! And I love the reflective glass snowflakes!
• Small bag of paillettes - I really love these although not sure what I am going to do with them yet???
• Strand of fluorite gemstones - and I have to say a very generous strand! These are so pretty and a natural mineral!
• Two glass hearts in an organza bag - loving that they came in a little organza bag I shall use this in some crafty way too!
• Ball of furry white wool - I have just bought a pom-pom maker so this is just what I need!
• 20m spool of shirring elastic - I use so much of this in my crafting it really is a craft essential!
• Choker wire - I've not used one of these before and I think I shall make a Christmas present with it!

We also received three crafty creatives badges which are super cute! A lovely thank you from the Crafty Creative team!

I have already started making lots of lovely things from this box and I shall blog them all soon!
