12 Months of Pinterest

OMG I can't believe we have completed a whole year of pinterest makes!
Our new years resolution for 2015 was to make one thing from pinterest each month and blog about it.
it could be anything at all. This only feels like a couple of months ago but no, its December all ready.
So here is my last pin of the year....
Grumpy looking old woman!
what do you think? I'm so pleased with this cowl because i'm not a knitter so it was a real challenge. I really don't like a circular needle LOL its the first time ive ever seen one never mind used one!

spot the mistake.
Yep I went wrong. I don't know how to pick up stitches if I drop them or have to undo some so when I go wrong I have to undo the whole lot and start all over again. hmmm I did this three times.
you can see my mistake in the photo but I didn't notice it till I was a good few rows past it and I didn't have the will to  start again so ive left the mistake. lets call it character!

second one is work in progress.
I was so pleased with it that I popped out and bought a ball of brown wool to make another one.
I'm going to add these to a family members Christmas present. I hope they like them as much as I do.
I'm going to make myself one but can't decide what colour combo to choose.
What colours do you like together? I'd love it if you could leave a comment telling me what colours to use next.
Please pop over to Margaret's blog to see what she has made for December and also Carollyn's blog. these too ladies have soooo much more talent than me and I'm sure you will love their December projects.
We are going to start this all over again with a pin each month so if you would like to join us just drop me a line. It can be anything you want.... knitting, crochet, gardening, cards, papercrafts, glass painting, cooking..... even a housework cleaning tip. (yeah right) I don't think you will find any of those on my blog LOL
thanks for stopping by and thank you for any comments you might like to leave. I'd love to hear from you, even if its just saying hello so I know you stopped for a visit.

All Wrapped Up!

Oh boy I'm so late this week with my DT card for Creative Inspirations....
Sorry guys!
I had it ready of course, I was just late blogging my end but I'm here now....
I've used sugar Nellie's Raven stamp from Funky Kits.
she is All Wrapped Up in her winter coat, hat and scarf to keep the cold out!
I love this stamp.
I coloured her with copic markers and added some snow writer.
the tree's are Impression Obsession die cuts with the snow add to the branches. I was so pleased with how they turned out.
I really liked the image so decided to keep the card plain and simple.
Our theme this week is All Wrapped Up and I'm looking forward to seeing how you interpret that.
will it be pressies wrapped up?
