AIM FREE online mag and advent calendar

If you havent already visited the AIM site it is a treat that you are missing.  I am lucky enough to be an AIM member and i have also have articles of mine included.  This month they have also done an advent calander a door each day to open with a free mini project behind.  I was excited to find that my cross stitch Christmas angel was in door number 2.  So why dont you take a peek.

My Angel, the pattern to complete this is behind door number 2.  Sara x:o)

Snow days

For some of you the amount of snow is laughable but when you come from and area that snow is rare you can see why ours has caused excitement.

Most years we get a bit but usually not more than a couple of inches but this year it certainly came down and brought much of the UK to a standstill.  Here are some pictures of the snow and of Holly who absolutely loves it.  We have had more snow since the pictures and the weather people say more may be on its way.  The kids have been happy though as there has been no school.    Sara x :o)

Another welcome and and apology

Perhaps im the only one that didnt realize that if a follower does not have a profile picture then they go to the end of the followers list.  If like myself you only look at the new page then these lovely people get missed.  It was only when my figures went up and the pictures didnt match did i start searching.  So my apologies and a warm welcome to linda anema, cdhm org and Galina (hope that translation is correct).  Also i wish to welcome Strawberrymilk.  Hope you all enjoy your visits.  Sara x :o)

Part 2

So as i said lots of bits to come.  I just thought i would like to show you a little gift i recieved from a fellow AIM member.  Sue of Pastmastery Blog.  Sue put out a request for anyone who made 1.12th candy canes and i replied, the canes were to add a finishing touch to her whimsicals that Sue makes for charity.  These cute little figures are also beautifully scented.     Thankyou Sue x     This is Sue's picture and minie is below

holly & hat

At the moment we are preparing o go to the Whitby Goth weekend over Halloween and im madly making vampire, steampunk and goth clothing.  Thank goodness for charity shops for some of it.  Both my daughter and myself are having little top hats, that i am making and Charlotte thought it would be funny to put one on the dog.  I dont think the dog thought it was funny.  Take a look.  Sort of got revenge on Charlotte though as she had not long since crawlled out of bed when the picture was took.  lol.

Christmas garland & welcome

Hope you like this garland, crochet by me, it took a while but i think it was worth it.   The pattern I purchaced from buttercup miniatures, which is an excellent  site if you both like to make your own products as well as buy them already done.
When i put these on my site they will be by request only though due to them being time consuming and i would need to know the length of the individual fireplace.  they will be priced at £7.00 plus £1.00 p&p so if anyone would like one for Christmas i would need to start making a list.   Sara x:o)

I also have some welcomes to do, only 4 till my givaway.  
Welcome to Linda, Marie 75, Minnie Kitchen, Wrowsell and Patchmolly, hope you visit again.

I did everything it asked but i have only put one item on to try.  So hope fully it will work.  I have put on one of my masks.  My account seems to be called scalessara, not sure how to change it.  This is pic of the mask and i am adding a button from Etsy, i think this will ehlp you find it.

Welcome to Natalia and Nicole, you are welcome any time .  Sara x:o)

Look what i've got!!!!!

Had to show you my recent purchases one i got a week a go and the other this morning.  I've been part Christmas shopping with one of each of these items for myself the others for my daughter for Christmas.  Ive been waiting all day for her to go out as she was not at collage today to take the pictures. lol.

The first picture is of two beautiful pendents from Myrate, she is a fellow blogger that translates her amazing paintings into various forms of wearable items.

And the second set of pics will certainly make the miniaturists out there jealous, these beautiful hats are of course from Kat the Hat Lady.  The pink one is mine and the black/ goth style is for my daughter.  Kat has made this to order for me and i couldnt wait to open the box, thanks Kat

My photos really dont give any of the items justice.  Sara x:o)

This the second year that we have grown pumpkins on our allotment and we have been very pleased with the results.  Not as many athis year but still done well.  Some will be saved for Halloween and some for pumkin soup. Would be interested if anyone has other recipes, particularly pumpkin pie as this is not an item we eat in the UK.  Sara x :)

Noticed the crowns posted which are so sweet and it reminded me i have not shown any of you my mini tiaras.  The tiaras were the item that made me decide to set up as a little business and i feel are one of my signature peices.  So heres some pics, hope you like them.  These are all hand made using wire and tiny beads.  The pictures just show the basic design and colour.  I know have some with roses in but not taken any pics yet.
