VERY late christmas presents!!!

Well, there is a story here....

I bought these clocks a while back.... in the summer holidays, actually. I bought them with "altering" in mind...for christmas presies for my sister and my Mum. They have been sat in my craft room, waiting paitently all this time. Hubby kept reminding me I needed to do it.... and before I knew it, we were approaching christmas holidays and I had wrapped all our other gifts up!

As you may or may not know, we spent christmas in NEW YORK CITY this year!!!!!! (pics to come soon!) We got back on Monday, and were going round to my mum and dads for "christmas 2" today - so guess what I was up doing, till all hours last night?!?!?! Yes, ....these darn clocks!!!

I must admit. I am pleased with the way they came out, and my Mum and Dad and sister, all loved them! Phew! They were a little tricky at first, but once I had worked out a paper pattern, I used Pink petticoat papers to cover the clock, added a little liquid pearls and some teeny pearls on the larger flowers.
Here is Mums....




This one is for my Sister...I used funky fairies papers to make kaths, chalking the edges in green and adding a few green sparkly gems and a little liquid pearls here and there.....




So, I think it was well worth it....but I wish I had just bitten the bullet and got on with it earlier. My friend, Pam, thought I was really good for crafting the day I came back from NYC, but I reminded her that I was naughty leaving it this late, really! (The day before I was due to give them as presies!) Anyway - stress, over...will have to root through some of the photos we took while away, to show you what a fab christmas we had. xx
