Handmade Monday 146

It's time for Handmade Monday again - hello!  If you're new here, click the link to find out more.

This week has passed in a bit of a blur for me, mostly a painting blur!  This time of year I turn into a one-woman factory, churning out personalised gifts!  Santa's elves have nothing on me!

But I did shoe-horn in a bit of card making time.  Valentine's cards, no less, for Craftseller magazine.  It feels odd to be so wrapped up in Christmas orders one minute and making Valentine's cards the next!

I got my sewing machine out for this one!

I'm keeping it short and sweet this week so I can get back to the sweatshop.  Well, it's actually more like a fridge than a sweatshop until the logburner kicks in, but you get the idea, I'm sure.

It's your turn now - what's been happening in your world?

It's a really busy time, it's funny that we all know that Christmas is coming but lots of people leave things till the last moment, me included :)
I'm not sure I'll get a post done for this weeks HM, if I don't I'll try and pop around to as many as I can :)

I love hearts and they feature in most of my drawings usually as a pair.

I hear ya! -- It's just Me, my *STASH* and the DUSTBUNNIES down in The CRAFT-CAVE [aka my 55F Basement-Bedroom] just finishing up Stuff for THE FAMILY... I'm done with the CRAFT-SHOWS for *this* Season, but already "planning" for NEXT Year's *possible* STUFF! -- Meanwhile, I'm also still waiting for a Postcard from THE ELVES... They never did say *where* They were going... Although, the gaudy "ALOHA"-Shirts They were last seen in, could be a *CLUE*..?!

must be so strange thinking about Christmas and Valentines at the same time! Really like your hearts design x

Trying to keep up with orders at this time of year is really hard and thinking (and making) about future events makes it even tougher. Love the hearts. Hope you have a good week.

I still haven't got into the crafter's habit of thinking one celebration ahead. Valentine's Day. Really!
