The Fat Controller....

Hello fellow crafters and welcome to my crafting corner! I hope you are all well and enjoyed the bank holiday weekend. Now before anyone gets excited and thinks I'm promoting a new diet aid, let me introduce you all to what was going to be the groom topper for my wedding cake. *Drum roll please* "Ladies and Gentlemen, woo woo productions is proud to present 'the Fat Controller' from the popular children's television programme, "Thomas the Tank Engine and friends" or if you squint the amazing Bertie Bassett much loved licquorice figure."

This "lovely" quilled figure was my first attempt at quilling a 3D character but somehow I ended up with the Fat Controller and not the handsome groom I was hoping for... Still that's marriage for you ;o) ( joking I adore my lovely Chris)

Well this is just a very quick blog for now.... If you can bear the sight of my second attempt then I'll post it later.  Stay crafty everyone. Big hugs Sarah aka woo woo girl xxx

plodding along....

Hello crafters and welcome to my crafting corner! I'm still without my own lappy so apologies for the lack of photos to go with this blog. Not done a great deal crafting wise apart from making 30 or so Wedding Invitations and writing them. I also knocked up a quick card for my nephew's birthday next week but totally forgot to take any photos. I've also do a sample Order of Service but not the inserts as I need to find out what needs to go in it. The final thing I've made is a silver exploding box which only has two layers to it which is fine as I'm planning on making a 3D quilled cat in it to give to my mum on my wedding day, I'm making Chris's mum a gold one with a cute 3D quilled mouse in its centre. I know it's traditional to give the mothers flowers but firstly I need to the cost of the wedding as low as possible and secondly flowers are lovely but they quickly fade and then get thrown away, I'm hoping that the exploding boxes will be a keepsake for our mums. Hopefully by the time I get round to making them - and here I must stress that I've never made a 3D quilled anything so they may turn out to be total pants  - I shall hopefully have my own laptop back so will be able to upload photos or not if they are hideously misformed lol. Still I've always liked a crafting challenge and I've certainly set myself one with my wedding! I'm also hoping to make 3D bride and groom cake toppers.

Oh just remembered! I had a pleasant surprise the other day, I was flicking through "Papercraft Essentials" magazine and suddenly spotted my name on one of the pages and when I looked carefully I found to my delight that a card I'd sent in to a comp months ago was featured in the Readers' Gallery *big happy smile*. I should be getting a prize and possibly a free copy of the mag so I'll keep you all posted.

Well that's about all my news for now. Hope all are well and ever if you have any questions, comments etc leave them below. Happy Crafting! Big hugs Sarah aka woo woo girl xxxxx
