Merry Christmas Everyone and ...

welcome to the Twiddleybitz blog hop...... nearly there just a few more of our wonderful talented designers after me :)Haven't there been some fantastic Layouts and projects completed :) Love them all - stole a few idea's and inspiration and wish I had known those angels Rach prior to me starting my handmade items!!

:) Tiff - you have been a wonderful asset to Twiddleybitz - you have had such a difficult year and through it all have always remained upbeat and happy and keeping us organised so Thankyou!!!!!

Twiddleybitz has come a long way since it first started up - I have been lucky enough to be involved right from the start!! Just about 3 years to the day lol!!! Nic and Andrew always always listen to all our suggestions and continually throw things at us to keep us on our toes and see what we come up with. More often than not they lead the industry in their ORIGINAL designs such as the opening gates and floating frames and only just this week have had another fantastic release of goodies :) Think High Tea and invitations along with fairies and pirates - and of course with a TBZ release without some stunning OTP projects.....and with these in mind I have created some teachers presents to say thankyou!! I don't mind spending a little bit of time creating the teacher presents at the end of the year - They spend a lot of time with the girls and deserve to be thanked :)

Isn't that cupcake inviting!!! Guess what it is a soap lol!!!! As I mentioned Perth stores were invited to a sneak peak and class on the Twiddleybitz latest release on this Monday just gone so here is a little looksey at what will be hitting the stores in the next few weeks!!!

Gingerbread house is designed so that the roof will lift off and you can fill it with lollies :) yummm wouldn't last long in my house - needs a lock on it!

The single cupcake stand (which as the clever Mel C has done - turned it into a candle stand!) is simply covered with paper glued together and voila!! TBZ were even so clever as to make new borders that it perfectly around the top edge of the stand!!!!

And these treasure chest are really really easy to put together!

Hope you enjoyed the projects - leave a post at the end of this message and I will draw a winner out of a hat on Monday 20th (after my mad week ahead) and will post out some TBZ goodies to someone (yes world wide but don't expect it before christmas lol :)

Next stop along our hop is the wonderful Jen Hodge

Merry Christmas everyone - I hope you have a wonderful time over Christmas and the New Year - stay safe - have a drink for me and I Hope Santa spoils you all :)

PS - Just finished off another teachers presents - modpodge was still too wet to adhere anything else too so it had to wait till now :) Another of these fun treasure chests :)

AND - if you have time - why don't you pop into Smudge and Sparkle tomorrow where I am teaching a stunning easel and church OTP.... Starts as soon as I get there tomorrow morning whilst the kiddies are at school and this is what you take home (or nearly will!)

Love your work Mel thanks for sharing. I didn't realize there was a hop going on ... So guess what I'm going to be doing the rest of the arvo hop hop hop I go!!

Gina B said...

Fantastic work, I think I ned to be a teacher if thats what they are getting. I love them all but had to take a second look at the gingerbread house, I wasnt sure if the house was TBZ or just the decorations. The house is TBZ isnt it? If so i'll have to get my hands on one of those. Merry Christmas and I hope the fat man brings you lots of goodies.

Rachel said...

Awesome work Mel, love it all! Your teachers sure get spoilt!

And Gina, the gingerbread house is definitely Twiddleybitz!

Mel, I hope you & your family have a wonderful Christmas. xx

Oh Mel, what a stunning array of beautiful and inspiraing projects as usual, you are so very clever when it comes to OTP and leave me looking silly I'm afraid as I'm just not that great at them. And we at Twiddleybitz feel just as lucky to have you as part of our dedicated team honey. You rock always and are an awesome lady as well, thankyou so much for your kind words. Merry Christmas to you and yours honey, Tiff :):):)
