[lots of creating...]

I'm now on a roll with the creating of stuff.... Quite a bit of orders for Xmas / commissioned works, so i've been kept pretty busy. My days are pretty much running around trying to get our house organised with the build (yup, we're still hoping we can move in before the New Year.. Fingers crossed!) and the nights and weekends are spent working on these crafting projects. Weather has been pretty dismal these last few days, so I've managed to catch some sun this morning and took pics of all the work done so far! :)
Just completed this mini album for a good friend and client. Love the Kaiser wooden album, I used lots of OA papers and stickers to embellish the album.
It was great that the album has a few sections, so i split up the process photos of the renovation works into the different stages (good thing I know all about reno works!) lol...
It was interesting to have a peek into somebody else's house being completed (yes, it is a sad occupational hazard)
Also left quite a lot of tags and journalling spots for her to write her thoughts against the corresponding pictures.
I love the little tag of the 2 love birds with their nest - very apt!!

The next commissioned piece is for a daughter's graduation..... I altered an old MM glitter shape box.. i love the scalloped clear window, so left that part bare, but did a little AC rubon to give it some colour.
The album inside is a self made accordion album, but it was quite flat, so to take up the height of the box, I tied a crochet flower onto a chipboard fleur, with a little bit of yarn..
The accordion album with some inside pages....
I wanted to keep the pages simple..
Hope she likes it!!!

Lastly, i've been also making lots of Xmas cards with the OA papers and stickers.....
I also found a local supplier of Glassine Paper, and i loved how my handmade glassine envelops look!! :)
Just simple stickers and rubons....
"Merry Christmas" stamp is my favorite from October Afternoon
Papers are the old range of OA papers (i think from last xmas?) but are pretty timeless.
Okay! I've more pics of my HKG album (maya rd + OA) which i will post in the next post!

Have a great weekend.....
