Handmake Christmas 2011 Jmack style

I have a very special place in my heart for a wonderful crafty friend I met 3 1/2 years ago. I met Janet, along with many other fantastic new mum's, at our local early childhood centre when our first bubs were born. I really struggled with those first few months of parenting and so I did not get along to any of the lunches or social gatherings outside of the early childhood centre. Then Lachie ended up in hospital at 10 weeks old needing emergency surgery (he had an abscess in a lymph node in his groin) so I really fell off the radar. Finally 5 months later I had finally sorted out a lot of associated problems with the little guy! I was finally ready to get out and socialise but I felt that too much time had passed and that it was too late for me to become involved in the Parent's group that had established from the Early Childhood meetings. Hmmm... what to do?!?!? That very week I received an email from Janet telling me that I was still very welcome to come to any of the gatherings if I ever wanted to and she even gave me the details of the gathering that week. Well I jumped at the opportunity and have not looked back! I am so thankful to Janet for the quick email she sent me that day! :)

Anyway... blah blah blah... not only is Janet a great person but she is also a fellow crafter and I wanted to put up some of the stuff that she is doing at the moment. She is aiming to Handmake Christmas 2011 and has some really great ideas.

So... here are some pics...

Her desk with some of her craft purchases. She's got a scrapbook album, wooden bangles, cards, frames, beads etc etc

I love this card. Butterflies are always a winner!

Handbag card! Too cute!!

Chrissy presents

Janet is sending these cards to the troops overseas so that they have cards to send to love ones back home. What an awesome thing to do!

This necklace is awesome! It's a bit hard to tell but the beads are a mix of aqua, copper and red. Hot!!

I'm loving this one!!
Good job Jmack!! You're on fire!! :)

Thats all for now,
