WOYWW 277

It has taken me a few weeks after the holidays to get organised enough to participate in WOYWW (- to join in visit Julia HERE).  For once I was too busy to do any crafting on holiday and it was really too hot anyhow. We had a fantastic time, despite all the alarming reports on the media.

I have been trying out some new stash today and also preparing a few ideas for a class on Christmas gifts, boxes and tags next Friday.  The wee curvy box thing has been die cut from thick vellum, stamped with snowflakes and pricked - it contains a battery operated tea light and I think I may make a few for our Christmas craft fair.  The paper pack is in my favourite colours - aqua, teal and lime green, so I may have to save some just to look at!!

  1. That box is beautiful, Bernice. Glad you had such a special holiday - the photo of Jerusalem and the wailing wall are great.

  5. Lovely photos of Jerusalem! Is that where you went on holiday? Lucky you. I was there in 1968 but it's probably changed alot since then.
    Great Christmas gifts! That's given me some ideas. I recognise that die. I have it too, so I will be playing with that soon.
    Thank you for letting me peep over your shoulder.

  7. Happy WOYWW, your tea box light holder is gorgeous, so is the card you are working on! Has everyone been abroad apart from me I wonder?

  13. So nice to see some pictures of Jerusalem! I'll never forget visiting, and praying at the Western Wall... Your desk looks great, and that paper so pretty. Your little illuminated box is gorgeous, and very unusual. I am sure those would sell like hot cakes at any Christmas fair.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
