Yes, I have been quite crafty this Christmas and not in a devious way. When you don't have much money to spend at Christmas you have to start thinking about other ways to give gifts, so this year I made them all, and a couple for myself.
The first picture is actually a mirror I decorated for the bathroom. I found the mirror at the recycling plant and bought it for a couple of quid. It was quite a nice wooden mirror in the first place, but I had the urge to get creative and as it had hardly cost me anything I gave it a go - not too bad and the colours go well with the bathroom decor.

The mosaic items below is a new thing for me. I have never attempted to mosaic before. The first one was quite hard to do because of the shapes. The other two below that are my third and forth attempts at mosaic (the first attempt isn't good enough for a photo!) I think I got better at it as I went. The blue one for my uncle was the last one I did - everything is a lot straighter.
