Winter is coming....
I'm reading; I have set myself a challenge. To read as many of the Game of Thrones series as I can be bothered to get through. I'm not sure how many there are, or how long (I'm a Kindle reader; I can't tell if it's a novella or a doorstop, just that I'm 25% through and so far that's OK) so that sounds like a challenge to follow on a dark, dark night!
So, Winter is Coming and I'm away with the Starks and the Lannisters and wondering how far I will go...
|This fantastic city is in Game of Thrones.... yes, it is. There is no way this is mushrooms growing in MY lawn! No, stop laughing there. Really, now, stop... stop it, I tell you....!!!|
There, I've said it. Don't care. I'm a Christmas Fairy and I love Christmas. And I'm a crafter so there will be a LOT of Christmas crafting happening around here. Starting with today's project. It's taking a long time, but I am making trees for my mantelpiece.
The plan is to make a small forest (three trees is a forest, right?) in red, cream and bottle green, decorated with buttons and in tuna tin bases filled with a pot of Polyfilla that I once bought and never used. At the moment I have one tree carcass looking like this;
and in need of some stuffing (is it upstairs or up in the craft attic? Can't remember!) and buttonista work. They were so quick and easy to do, I'm thinking about actually writing my first tutorial. Anybody interested? Just drop me a comment below and I'll get it done in the next two weeks!
