Christmas Craft Freebies For You

Calling any fellow crafters out there who might like some free printable designs to use.

My other website is a craft based blog and that is where I hang out most of the time now.

I’m pretty sure a lot of the people who used to visit here (back in the days when I was actually here myself!) are arty crafty types.

And I created the channel through the back of the pendant, where the stringing material goes through, by using another amazing technique involving a skinny, flexible birthday cake candle.

Oh yes – I have all the latest crafting gadgets in my craft room!
