WOYWW #237 - One Week To Go...

Christmas is nearly upon us, so come join the fun at Julia's infamous blog hop.

I have been making purple decorations for my tree. First a beaded house, then a purple sheep then a bird. I even bought some more felt!




My craft group have been doing an ATC exchange for Christmas and these are my ATCs received so far.





The ATCs are sitting on a couple of Ikea wide framed mirrors which I intend to alter "one day".

I have also made a card for my uncle who shares his birthday with my son on Saturday! 91yrs and 15yrs respectively! I have made my son a card too but can't really share that yet...

The tree decorations look fabulous. I love all the atcs you have received they look so festive. The car you have used on the card looks very vintage I'm sure your uncle will love it. Thanks for sharing, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Tracy #41

The first thing I noticed on your desk was all those lovely colors of felt. Yummy. And being partial to purple to begin with I thought your ornaments would be cool. But they really are! So cute. Great job. Wishing you a joyful Christmas.

Hi BJ, your purple tree ornaments are brilliant! And the card for your uncle is perfect for a man of his mature years. Still trying to catch up with the ATCs - should be easier now that my room is looking more organised. Seasons greetings to you and yours, Elizabeth x #45

Very fitting to use purple on your tree, such a royal and ecclesiastical colour..and they're reallllllyy pretty too!! Aren't the ATCs lovely, somehow, they've all turned out the same colours, how useful for OCD purposes!!
