Another of those fairy things for my Grandma

My granny loves her fairies. She keeps buying them always asking me to craft things for her using them. This is fairy #9 so far O__o, I still have 3 left and I am really hoping she'll at least buy some different ones next time, just to get some variation into this.

I used genuine moss and small branches for this one. I wanted to give it this "real" touch. I actually liked it a lot when I was done with it, it was the first of all the fairy project I might have been persuaded to keep for myself LOL. Probably not.

I gave it to her on my mother's birthday as a late Easter gift, since I couldn't visit on Easter. And she gave me yet another thing to do for her. At least this time without any fairies. It never gets boring when my family is involved.

And it was also the neighbour's birthday

Is your head spinning already with all these birthdays? LOL
It seems I only craft for birthdays at the moment, but I still have pictures of non birthday present crafting I did those last few weeks, don't worry.

So, this is the surprise tin I did for our neighbour at Liebenscheid (that's where my parents live). He is my mother's best friend and I thought I'd do a little surprise for him. I put only some tea in it, so nothing big or anything. I tried to make the tin not too girly, but interesting enough for his little daughter who'll keep it as a pencil tin and therefore not really mature *gg*

She loved it, and he loved his tea ;o)

It was my mother's birthday...

And that was her present ^___^
The card is already older and once again from my stash, but this one was very high up on my favourite list and I knew I either wanted to keep it or give it someone very special. And who is more special than my mum?
In the tin was her "real" present, a ring she wanted to have for months now, but never bought. I was a little sad that my Magnolia Spring Kit arrived the day after I finished the tin, a little princess would have been just perfect for it :o)
And the last thing I gave her was this tealight holder. It was originally just plain grey wood and fake stone and I decided to pimp it a little.

She loved her presents, so this was great success ^_____^

Birthday Present #5

Actually it's already #6, but I didn't craft anything for #5 and used a card from my stash, so nothing to show for that one.

This one was for a bunny and roses lover, obviously ;o)

The glass can either be used as a tea light holder, it will shine very lovely, or as a pencil holder for example. I'd use it as a tea light holder though.
The little box is supposed to be a jewelery box and I finally used one of my Magnolia mini stamps! (finally after 6 months)
Also, no new card for this one, I used one from my stash again.

Magnolia Spring Kit Spring 2010 - Picture

This is so amazingly cute. I really hoped it would be either the Fairytale or the Pirate Collection *happy dance*.

Magnolia Spring Kit Spring 2010

I just received my stamp kit. OH MY GOD! It's from the Fairytale Collection. I'm so happy about that ^____^

I'll show a picture later today.
