Christmas Decs and more Blocks

I can't remember if I mentioned it before or not but I bought some blank mdf/wooden Christmas tree decs, which I wanted to paint ...well I have made a start but then somehow the decoupaged blocks took over and are still at the fore front of my making at the moment but I thought I would show you how far I have come with the tree decs, though I can't sell any yet as I haven't really had the time to paint any :(

These are only painted on the front side as I'm not too sure what to do about the other side, mainly of the Santa head, Snowman and Teddy which I am thinking of either painting in a plain colour and writing some Christmassy words or painting as a back view hmmm decisions 

I think these will be more for next Christmas rather than this one, lol as I still have lots of blanks to decorate as in Stars..Snowflakes..Heatrs..Cats..Stockings..Birds..Apples.. Trees etc etc

I've decorated 2 more sets of Blocks, this time with childrens names on, Amelia is one set and Cody her brother is the second and they were such fun to do.

Now I'm off to watch Piers Morgan interviewing James Corden
Byeeeeee :)

Don't you just love 'em

These were delivered today, my latest win on Ebay and I just love them and at just £3.70 they make me smile even more lol... Mr & Mrs Claus

....aren't they just adorable...this is the Ebay photo a little blurry but I think you can get the gist of them,  They are 15" tall, made out of wood/fabric with springy moving parts and I want to hang them all year that sad?

Blocks Blocks and even more Blocks

Earlier in the summer I decorated some blocks for the Ist time for a swap I was involved in....

From this 1st attempt I had a few orders one being from the oh so talented Lalabibaby who wanted me to decorate some for her craft table with her business name I went one step further and copied loads of her photos from Facebook Blog etc and covered the remaining 45 sides, whereby creating a mini portfolio of her beautiful work...

I then had a couple more orders one from a lady who likes reds and the other from someone who wanted pinks....

Reds first....

Now for pinks..

I now have orders for a christening present....
I did think of perhaps personalising them and I suppose I could add photographs too if wanted...think the skys the limit with these little blocks. lol..£2 per block + p&p
I really enjoy doing them too which always helps haha!!
