About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Christmas Tree

I've only had this blank MDF Tree for a year..... I decided I needed to get on and decorate it as we are spending Christmas in our caravan and I wanted this to be our Christmas Tree. I drilled some holes through the tree which now house little Christmas lights powered by battery. Ideal for the caravan.
I painted the tree using Claudine Helmuth paints and then cut the baubles and holly leaves from some Christmas paper.
The blank tree was purchased from Art From The Heart in Harrogate. I have another tree, different design, which I may get done before next Christmas, lol
