 Lisa from That Craft Place gave me this  Box to alter, firstly I painted it in cream then added a gold bronze colour and then rubbed it down a bit to try to get the effect of age.

WOYWW 133, Christmas sorted !!!! Well almost x

 This is a little dickens mice scene that I knitted over a year ago for my Grandson, so it has pride of place beside the tree, this pattern is from Alan Dart, hope you enjoy

 Stamping my brown paper for Christmas presents, this year I was rushed for time  working full-time gets in the way of crafting as I am sure you will all agree x  Below is a Nativity scene which I knitted many years ago, also used a Alan Dart pattern

 Lots of tags for presents on my workdesk, below wrapping up the goodies, well some of them still a few to go, these tags were made by using my gingerbread man die by Tim Holtz

 The Christmas tree very laden with allsorts, a lot of memories on this tree goodies made by my daughters when they were young
 The little tag on the tree say's  "Sit long- Talk much- Laugh often x x 
 Some holly from my Garden with some candycane's etc  to cheer up the kitchen
 Stocking's waiting to be filled, my daughters are grown women now, but still very young at heart and love their stockings at Christmas, These are the stocking they had as children so they around 25 years old, they have been mended a couple ot times since then x x
Of course this is the reason for it all, A very Merry Christmas to you all and a happy new year xxxx, Lots of Hugs May x x x x  x x x x x x x x
