Another blog hop !!

Welcome to another Twiddleybitz blog hop !!! My second.....ever. If you started at the beginning with the lovely Anne-Marie you would have seen how clever and talented the Twiddleybitz DT are !!!! Well it's my turn now....and although I don't have a tutorial for you...I do have some Fantastic OTP Twiddleybitz to show you. The first is an oldie, but a goodie !!!! I think it has so many different uses. How about a Christmas treat train ???? There are Twiddleybitz pieces all over this thing !!!! And LOADS AND LOADS of glitter !!This next piece was made up of leftover pieces of Twiddleybitz....because I sooooo.... wanted to make a wishing well....I would like to make another...maybe Mr Twiddleybitz could be talked into making we could ALL do a wishing well.....What do you think????
Ok....and last, but not least......Mr and Mrs Twiddleybitz gave me a new product to play with.....I believe they will be available in January. A High Tea Party Set....The cupcake stand, the Menu, the invitations and the single cake stand......I really enjoyed decorating this. I used some beautiful pink/lemon/white paper.....think it was Doodlebug Designs. Some pearls...(lots of pearls!) Painted the base white...covered the three sections in and bottom. Added some Prima flowers...different sizes per layer...then added some more beautiful Prima to the base. it also comes with the cutest little teapot/cups embellishments....and cupcakes !!!
My 6YO daughter has put an order in, for one of her own!!!!

Now dont forget to leave a comment, at every blog you visit....there are prizes, up for grabs....I believe the lovely Rachel Walsh is next on this blog hop.....So hop on over....and see what goodies Rachel has to show you. all of you.....Have a Very Twiddley Christmas !!!!

My Poor neglected Cricut...

I have decided, after much thought, to sell my very neglected Cricut. So if anyone lives in Perth, and wants to buy, a hardly used (could count on two hands the times it's been used) Cricut Expression, with 5 cartridges (2 not used) and a Deep Cut blade. I have very little space to scrap, and use the end of dining table as my "space". So in order to use the Cricut, the kids need to be in bed, dishes done, so that the kitchen bench is clear for me to use it. It is also kept in my room, in a cupboard, all on its lonesome. It is a fantastic machine...but I just do not have the room for it.
The cartridges I have are: Accent Essentials, Plantin Schoolbook, Home Accents, Joys of the Season and Home Decor. As I said.....It's hardly been used....I am asking $650.00 for the lot.
If anyone is interested leave me a comment or email me....

Xmas Table Centrepiece

This is the NEW Twiddleybitz Xmas tree centrepiece. I really love doing Christmas decorations....and this one is easy....and looks great !!! I collect tiny, wee boxes for just this reason. I used some of the small Smartie boxes the kids throw out when they've eaten the Smarties. Some of the small boxes are just chipboard squares, glued together. They look great when they are wrapped, and tied with ribbon. The tree itself was sprayed with TWDLYBTZ colorsprays, and then some glitterspray. The cube was covered with Christmas PP, and decorated with photos of my family. It will look great on the table, on Christmas Day !!!
I have also been working with some NEW TWDLYBTZ, but have been sworn to secrecy !!! But I do have some other "stuff", to show you....but it's still on the camera !!! So I will be back....sooner, than later.....I hope x x x
