A FEW GIFTS I MADE..

Hello my Lovelies, thanks so much for leaving some love, it truly helps, you Ladies are THE BEST...
They let Deb go home for Christmas day to spend it with her children, Tonniece, Shelia and I spent Christmas day together, tons of laughs and great food, it was a great day.
Now on to my gifts,I made old brooches into steam punk ones..



 Tonniece had given me a brooch, I used this for my base, the tiny man was a pair of earrings she also gave me...



                                                           This is from the back...



I knew Tonniece probably wouldn't ware it so I made a holder for her to put it in her craft room..




                                               This is what I gathered for Sues brooch.



I love my third hand to it really helps to hold things.. E600 is what you heed to make these it will hold anything and I used it a lot on this brooch..


The back...

I made a special tag for my lovely friend \sheila. The base is from the back of a picture frame, my DS Sandy sent me a few alcohol inks so I used them on some glossy paper, she also sent me the snowflake behind, After I inked it then stamped it with Sheila's favorite stamp.


I inked up a piece of water color paper with Tim's red inks then stamped one of my favorite quotes.
I added 2 buttons with red thread and inked up some seam binding to match... 




Thanks for visiting my nest, I'm sorry I haven't been around, I will visit as soon as I can, I hope you all have a Happy New year, lots of love and (((( BIG HUGS ))))
                                             
                                                              NAMASTE !!!!

Wow! Dianne, those brooches are so unusual and whimsical! They are like something out of a fantasy! They are truly wondrous Magpie creations - lots of sparkle and imagination! I love the colours on your tag too and I'm a huge fan of images of Paris too. I'm so glad your Christmas day was full of joy and fun with lovely friends. Sending healing wishes to your dear sister. xxxx

WOW, hun, your steampunk creations are just fantastic!!! (Have you read any of the Steampunk books by Cherie Priest? The first is 'Boneshaker.' She mixes Steampunk, Zombies and Seattle and she's totally brilliant!)

Sending strong thoughts and prayers to you and your sister. I pray that the chemo will ZAP those cancer cells!

With love and prayers for a positive and happy outcome for Deb in 2015.

much love, Mags B x

Sorry I missed this at the time (Norovirus over Christmas - not nice), but I've been thinking of you a lot. Wishing you love and strength.

Wanted to say a huge thank you for the lovely card - and greetings from Cestina too. I've failed again to do any home-made cards, but there'll be an e-card on its way out soon... I'm just not sure I have a working email address for you. I'll have a look...
Love and hugs,
