New for 2016

Good afternoon all and thanks for looking in today. Hope you are well and enjoying your Sunday. I had a wonderful time yesterday and was very lucky , to spend the afternoon and evening crafting, chatting ( and yes there was chocolate ) and laughing with really good friends,,,Thanks ladies....

I have been thrilled by all the lovely comments, emails and phone calls that I have had about my Pyrography, and I am so pleased that I have inspired so many of you to buy a tool or just use the one that you purchased years ago...and is still in its box.... Oh dear ...what are us crafters like !!!!!

So today I am going to share some of my new designs with you....I am always looking for new ways of using Pyrography...so one of my new items for this year is personalised gift boxes for bottles....wine etc...

Now these can be for Birthdays, New Home, Congratulatios or how about Weddings....

Maybe with a bottle of Whisky in for the best man....

Or Valentine's Day with your own special message ....so many possibilities ...

I have used my Clarity stamps for the above boxes and the only difficulty I had was to narrow down my choice of stamps....I have so may favourites..

I do hope you like these...just something a bit different....

Now do you remember the other day when I said that Adam had gone to Bali on holiday....well he sent me a photo of his hand crafted elephant.....

That's my boy....

I am off now to finish some paperwork before walking Tess and Eric...

Enjoy the rest of your day....

Much love

Jo. xxx

    I forgot to email about a brush etc, (sorry). It's Claires' birthday on Friday so we are off for a week-end treat to see her. Dear SIL made us some real wood coasters for Xmas. Beautifully carved and polished Lime wood (it has a lovely natural smell)
    Keep well & see you soon x
