Missed handmade monday last week as I'd spent a lot of time sorting out my new website, so no time for any new craftings. However, I'm back on the crafting again now.
This week, I've completed one of my day zero project tasks: make a Christmas decoration every year. 2011 is now complete, although I'm not sure whether it needs a drop/charm in the centre.
This reminds me of a gyroscope (?sp?). Large beaded circle, with another smaller one inside which can move around. My tree is themed purple & silver, so I've used gorgeous purple miracle beads and silver stardust beads. It's got a coil loop at the top so will hang it off some organza ribbon I think. Am pretty pleased with my first decoration, although have got a few more ideas for different craft techniques for my next ones to make.
Have also started on some makes for secret santas, and other ideas I've thought about, but need to get them finished before I upload them, so maybe next week.
