Happy New Year for 2013 ...

I hope you all had a good Christmas and that you are ready to start the New Year ... feeling refreshed and raring to get summer crafting.

I hope we have some good weather this year as we sure do need it after all the rain we have had.

Did Santa bring you what you wanted? I got some lovely things and some more crafting "Goodies" too ... which will be featured pages on the website in the coming months.

One of the projects I added just before the break was to show you how to decorate these beautiful female shapes.

My "Film Crew" was up his ladder getting these in video and they have been so well accepted. I have had lots of emails about them.

And all the girls in my family, big and small, want me to make one for them.

They are beautiful to give as gifts to all your girly friends and so easy to do.

The video will show you how to get the look and you can use your favorite stamps and some tissues, or tissue paper.

It is a really effective technique that can be used on any item that you would like to alter.

Use your imagination and think outside the box.

You will be amazed at what you can come up with.

Miniature Dress Forms

But to continue the theme I decided that they needed Hats and so that was the subject for the next video to be added to the tutorials.

Dress Form Hats

These are so pretty and the pink one is ... mine! all mine! coz I can't bear to part with it... and it is much better in real life.
