Hello wednesday - Christmas heart

Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday  "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!

As we were loading the van on Saturday for our show in Paris (starts today) I remembered that there was no point in taking one of the props.  We were sold out of most of the key elements, as I took it out of the yellow prop box Rachie came to the van with another crate of stock, and saw me removing it.  No way was she going to tell me to make another one!! She still feels bad about the cushion accident.

But I had got all the buttons ready to take home, this is what I came up with......................... may recall I made a red and white one last December, you can see it here.  This time I went for a fresh lime and red colour way, the lime gives it a zingy look I think.  I must admit I did chicken out at using scissors to cut the backs of the buttons off.  A customer had previously told me she used nail clippers, they worked even better then scissors.

I love the way the Let it snow button finishes off the base of the heart. The little pearls are from a packet from the front of a magazine, I keep all those bits, normally for the little guys to craft with.  I have removed ALL the Christmas buttons from the website, I could not decide how much stock to take to Paris, so I took the lot!!  They will go back on early next week, but if you would like any of the buttons here, then a quick email to rachie at and she will reserve them for you.

I do hope Bev, Rachie and the rest of the Crafty Team are looking after you all well.  I pre wrote this post on Sunday as I knew there would be no way I would have time to do it from Paris.  Not even taking a computer this time!

Tony and I will be back in the office on Tuesday, do hope you all have a fab week.

Wish us luck!
