My latest creation and my new toy and my newest xmas project

Hello Everyone,

Well the last couple of days the weather has been so warm and sunny, not exactly winter kind of weather which I love, but at least we have been able to do all those outside kind of chores you know the ones I hate mainly weed pulling lol....
Altered a little tin yesterday which is the only thing I have done craft wise all weekend have a few things on the go that I'm working on so will be able to show and tell those later in the week.....

I found this cute little silver trim the other day while I was shopping and I have used this to decorate the edges of the tin cover, and then have painted the tin bottom silver, and used my heat gun to create this paint effect....
Well I finally got my ipad the other day and I have been playing with my new toy ever since I got it, just found out there was the next season of the Tudors so have got that all on there now, it's such a handy item the only thing that should of come with it I think is headphones but that is my only complaint....
Now a friend of mine Tabitha is hosting a swap over at her blog back to school cigar box swap she is also having a giveaway as well if you follow her blog so why don't you go and check it out...

Okay I'm back I brought this Twiddleybitz winged shadow box last week from Scrap with V and this is what I have been working on this afternoon, now those who know me know that I want a shabby style christmas this year and my goal of making an ornament each week, so I have created a winged xmas tree topper to sit at the top of my christmas tree this year....

Your swap parcel is wrapped and 'almost' ready to send. I did my grocery shopping on line today and ordered all the 'edible goodies' within my groceries since leaving the house to go shopping still requires energy that piggie flu has robbed me of!
