Guest designer on the Among The Gum Tree Blog





A little while ago I received an email from Jenny from http://gumtreedesigners.blogspot.com/
asking if I would liketo design a downloadable freebie for their Christmas countdown of gift ideas and off course I had to think about it......for about a nanno second,just while I was jumping up and down for joy and trying to collect myself so I could reply with some sort of coherancy LOL.

Of course I said YES and then quickly started to jot down ideas and hopefully I've come up with something you'll all enjoy making.If you'd like to see the design I've created just for you pop over to their blog at http://gumtreedesigners.blogspot.com/ this Monday the 15th November and download it and then come back and tell me what you think I'd really love some feedback on what you think and if you do get to make it for Christmas this year I'd love to see some photo's.
Oohhh forgot to say that I answered a few questions about my crafting journey so have a read and hopefully my photo won't break your computer screen LOL.

The photo's above are a couple of other designs I've had published in handmade magazine this year.The cushion is in the handmade issue Vol.27 No.11 & the christmas bag is in Handmade Vol.28 No.6 if you want to have a go at making them.

I also want to thank all the Gum Tree designers for giving me the chance to put myself out there in blogland and get my name more known through their generosity in letting me design a freebie for their blog.Thanks girls I really do appreciate it :) Barb.
