Christmas Recycling

Just a super quick post today.
I hope you are all organised with your Christmas preparations....
Am I ???? ........Erm...No!!!!
Hence why I'm not here much ATM

Our weekly challenge this week over at Riddersholm is to recycle something for Christmas.

Here I recycled logs or should I say rescued them from the fire. 
I white washed them with chalk paint and decorated with Riddersholm A Christmas Story

While I'm on the subject of logs, here's some my hubby rescued!
Hee Hee  cute hey!
I think he needs a few more mince pies though!

Bye for now


A Christmas Star

Today is the start of another weekly challenge over at the Riddersholm blog and this weeks challenge is
 **** Stars*****

Ive been so very short of crafty time this last week that yesterday I was in a panic thinking what could I make  quickly!!  Then I remembered the Pop Up Star Book I made a couple of years ago.
I also have a tutorial  I made for this HERE

Honestly this star is so quick and easy it took me literally half an hour.


Rusty Bells and Seam Binding is from the Ribbon Girls Shop

Have a great week

Magnolia DT Christmas Blog Hop Number 2

 Welcome to the Magnolia DT Christmas Blog Hop Number 2.
All you have to do to be in for winning a prize from Magnolia Sweden is to hop along each blog and leave a comment on each one..simples.
So go grab yourself a cuppa and take a pew, Im sure you wont be disappointed with what the girls have made and hopefully they will put you in the Christmas mood.

If you are here you are at the beginning.
For my project I made something Ive had in mind for a while, using an old paperback book.
I kept seeing these on Pinterest and couldn't wait to give it a go. Very easy too.
For the cards Ive used Tilda With Apple Wreath and Tilda With Trumpet from Waiting For Christmas Collection coloured in Sepia using Distress Ink Walnut Stain.

I found it quite therapeutic making this tree. It does advise to use a 200 page book. Here I used a 300 page, which took lots of folding, but the result was a very full tree.

Seam Binding, Rusty bells, Cheesecloth and the gorgeous Diamante Star are all from the Ribbon Girl Shop.
The wooden stars are from Live and Love Crafts
here is the order of the hop
Debbie (ME) you are here

Thankyou so much for hopping by.
