the aftermath of an open house! I invited some friends round for a joint "Christmas shopping Open House", one jewellery designer, one card designer, one bead artist, and me......... After panicking no-one would come there was a houseful, and I couldn't get chance to take any photos during, so these are the after party shots.
once neat piles......
a few less bags!
but no less brooches, 3 orders for different ages though
lots of washing up
and some goodies for me! 2 mice for the stockings - sugar mice are traditional, these are more tooth kind!
a scary snake with a pipe cleaner inside so he's bendy!
and two sparkly dragonflies, which may or may not find their way into the Christmas present box.....
oh and that last piece of chocolate cake just got eaten!
