Christmas Card buffet

About 10 days ago I attended a great class facilitated by Nic Howard at NZ Scrapbook. The focus was on Prima products with an all you can crEATe buffet of flowers, gems, ribbons and lace. So much fun. And I also got to play with Glimmermists and that was more dirty-fingered creative fun (adding colour to my hands on top of the tie dyes in the previous post!)

The best thing was the class gave you plenty of time and scope to try out new products and your own colour schemes. I made a total of 12 cards.. will try and scan the rest to share

Revisiting the 70's

We had so much fun a few days ago with my teenage son and his best friend... we created some cool tie dyed T shirts and singlets. We are going to do more! but this was our first effort. Wow! so much more worthwhile to be dying with decent Procion fibre reative dyes rather than the pallid Dylon dyes I had to make do with in the 70's.

As it was our first tryout I told the boys they could choose just two colours and they chose orange and black. The single t shirt is a baby size that I made for my newest niece or nephew due in February 2009!

I think we will be doing a lot more of this in the New year
