WOYWW - Something to See, Hurrah!!!

Hi everybody... Last post for me before crimble and last showing of my disreputable desk!!! Curtesy of the madame de desques, Julia de Dunnit, Le Stamping Ground de blogue... opps, got a tad oo la la then, eh!!?? So eyes down for a look see at what I am doing, and a winning SSSS tag made into a card - it really did look like a Victorian invention for something or other!!! tee hee...

 So here we are... still as untidy and dishevelled as ever but full of goody goodness - beads galore for making pressies - some for my lovely daughter and some for Freddie's sisters and niece in Gran Canaria!!!! YAY and thrice... I have a place (if blo-dy expensive) for mum to go whilst the fragrant Freddie and I get away for relative visiting and some sunshine in just a few days after crimble!!! Ah, dear readers, I REALLY need that sun and a rest from all the havoc since we got back from Egypt in September...

 There are some beautiful colours ready to use, and some super silver fillers too. I have earrings and necklaces, as well as bracelets to make, so I should have a whale of a time with them!! It's the sort of thing I can do sitting watching tv, or in mum's room.

 I have even found a watch in the same genre for the wonderful daughter... might get myself one too, after crimble... The green beads are for her, as she already has a bracelet in greens. she was very disappointed on Thursday, that she still can't drive, as one break is mending nicely, but the bone that pierced the skin is not showing any sign of healing yet, and her ligaments are still shot to pieces!! She did weep a little in frustration and shear fed-up-ness at being stuck indoors and loosing her independence!!! Poor love...

 The blues are very pretty too - I have my eye on them!!! Ok.. on to that card, made from the TIO and SSSS tag a couple of weeks ago... I too some of the elements apart and then made an easel card...

 I LOVE this stamp... what a fabulous face...

 The flying clock always makes me smile... The chap this is for has just been 67, so my idea was time flying...

 The "buttons here are the waste from the cogs. I love the texture...

And here is the whole thing, with that huge cog - it's so spectacular. I wish they did more this size and texture. So much to see and so mysterious... I realy like the finished thing - interesting to use the same elements but make them look so different...

So there you have my little offering for now. I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and a Happy New Year. I also hope that 2012 brings us ALL much better luck, health and prosperity. I know a lot of you have had a torrid time like us, so here's hoping all is more tranquil nest year...
Love and Light
Frankie

PS... HURRAH it's now the shortest day!!!!!!! so we can all begin to look forward to the summer!!! Merry Yule everyone!!!!!

Hey there. Your bracelets will be big hits, I'm sure. I like the watch idea and may be making one for myself and a friend (next year Christmas present). Yep, I start early, mostly because then I don't have a large expense at once.

The card looks so cool. I just love all the elements you've put together.

I hope you daughter continues to heal up nicely.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

What a great selection of beads and such a beautiful card. :) Merry Christmas!

Julia Dunnit said...

I know you can't say the money doesn't matter, but the price is worth paying, you both need a proper break, hope this works out perfectly. Am loving the beads, a watch would be a great way to wear lovely beads for no better reason! wishing you a happy restful Christmas, and to your poor frustrated daughter, I wish quick calcium and patience, I do understand, had a full arm plaster for 26 weeks some years ago...it's easy to get depressed about it.

Hello Frankie, just popping in late to say I've really enjoyed visiting your blog, and admiring your handiwork throughout the year. It's been fun getting to know you, virtually that is :) Busy desk, and I can quite see why - the jewellery is gorgeous and the card is absolutely fabulous. I can see why you are looking forward to a relaxing holiday in the sun but in the meantime I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Elizabeth x #46

okienurse said...

Awesome card Frankie! I am so envious of all the gorgeous beads and is that a bag of sweets on your desk? Thanks for sharing. I am really late getting around to all the blogs this week but hey it happened before and it will probably happen again. Hope you and your family have a Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas this year!
