Another Story Uploaded

The Chronicles of Ishmanban: Book One: The Fire Stone. Click to read The First Chapter.  "The Dream Child." 
Okay!. This is my baby. After I'd finished The Secrets of Dragonsmoore waaay back, (hence my email)  I wanted to write another story where the hero had more powers, not just in the Fantasy World but in the Real World too... Now, I did type out loads of things about this story, but decided to just let you read it. There's bound to be smelling spelling mistakes and muddled words, but I hope there isn't! Family want me to add it to Ebook downloads on Amazon but I thought I'd try it out here first.
I'm very chuffed with the first chapter as I entered it into a TV Writers competition and it came in the top ten out of 46,000 entries! I'm also rather chuffed with the cover too, which I made using Paint.Net and 3D-Box Maker!! My first try!
I'm just doing a new freebie for you, sorry I couldn't get it done sooner, so much going on!  Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Wishing you a Very Happy New Year too!!

Sorry there's nothing on my Boxing Day craft room coz my camera's batteries are flat, so I thought you'd like to meet Brustle! (Tom took this picture on his phone yesterday) He's the last of Christmas Day's Brussel Sprouts! I gave him button brad eyes and my sis in law gave him bread sauce hair!!! (that might be a bit of samon or carrot for a mouth..).Yes, this is what was on our Christmas Day table! He is still with us today, only he's  and mean,  it's looking a lot greyer and his 'hair' has lost its fluffiness! Happy WOYWW everyone, will try to do a freebie to buy batteries!!
Happy Boxing Day!!!!

Last Minute Christmas Quirkyness!

Happy Sunday everyone, it'll soon be Christmas! Sooo, for this fortnights Quirky Craft Challenge, Caro has chosen...
 LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS as the theme. So really, it's anything crafty you may still be making last minute... for Christmas!! 
Here's what I've done... (You fibber!) Okay...I made the tags... (and had the idea)  and Emma, joint effort here, my very pregnant daughter, made the cookies!
The shortbread cookies have been cut into hearts, stars and Christmas trees, and covered with icing and chocolate. For the tags I've used some of Dustin Pike's Christmasy digi's. I printed out a few of the images that are already coloured, kept them the same size as they come, very small, so they just fit my die cuts nicely. If you don't eat them all up straight away, put them under the tree for any one you may have forgotten!
Come and join in, I bet there's loads of last minute Quirky Christmas craftiness going on everywhere!! Deb's Cake

WOYWW ! 12/12/12...bit spooky!

Morning everyone! It's WOYWW again, already...and I'm still trying to get round last weeks list! Sorry if I missed you, I will try harder this week...It's the twelfth of the twelfth...And!!! I've posted this post at midnight!!! So....I wonder what magical event will happen!?! I might tidy my craft room! No...Can't stay up late tonight...I only went to bed five minutes before it was time to get up, so I'm feeling a little knackered! This is what's happening this week... Two broken Christmas butterflies are waiting to be glued back together..(not together...just their wings, glued back to their bodies) and that ring, I thought I might stick some old Christmas dec's on it and glitter it up...I just know your worktops are so much better than this, so why not nip over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in!! Thank you for stopping by!!

Some Quirky Tags!

Argh! Where have I been? In a very dark place, but I got out! So! This post, which was typed out last week and has been completely rewritten! (apart from the odd 'and' and 'then' and the words, 'mojo' and naff) and has now become a reminder that Quirky Crafts  fortnightly Challenge still has a whole week to run, so there's plenty of time for you to make up some tags and play along with us! And you can use them on your Christmas pressies! (Yay!) I made some...but not fact, mojo missing and they turned out completely naff! But never mind, the world won't come to an end...well not yet! 
Here they are... I've used two digi's from our sponsor, Dustin Pike, who is offering a fabulous prize!  We also have another sponsor, Paper Pretties also offering a fabulous prize! I've used my own Snowy background on some of'll find free HERE, I've used Promarkers for the bear (Father Christmas was already coloured in) loads of glitter and...there was ribbon...but you can't see that here because I took the photo before I put them on. (oops!) The two fonts I've used are Heartbreaker and also from the same place...Janda Celebration Script That's it for now! If you want to see some really nice tags, pop over to Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog, or even go and 'like' them on Face Book! Catch you again very soon...promise not to drop you, although if you've been scuffing mince-pies...I  might!!

WOYWW... this week?

Welcome to What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. I'm home!! Yay! No wet dogs in sight! And this is what's on my workdesk this week! A bit of a mess. I used the flash, it's sooo dark (well it is midnight) I wasn't able to do my DT Tag while I was away... can't find the tags I was going to use but I found the ones you can see, but I am holding out, hoping to find the ones I wanted to use. Hoping to make them look fantastic, but don't hold your breath!! (That's a lot of 'holds!') Both my tag punches are too small, so I'll probably draw round the ones you see there and then cut them out. (I'm only three days late)Pop over to Julia's stamping ground and join in!! I'll be round ASAP, have an CT scan today, so that should be fun!

This Weeks Wednesday Digi CLOSED

Yay! I'm back from sitting on the dogs! Here's This weeks Wednesday Digi! I was going to do a dog, but a few of you emailed and said they liked the sledge they saw last week on my desk. That one was a bit wobbly. It's still a bit wobbly, but not as wobbly as it was! CLOSED!!
