Picture My Week – Xmas crafts , camera shopping, and evenings by the fire November 21, 2013 by portugalholidayguide Leave a comment The weather has suddenly got much cooler , so it’s time for winter clothes and roaring log fires so I need to prepare lots of starter wood and pine cones I have moved my work tables together , so I can work nearer to the fire. the other half of the room looks so empty ! This week I was asked if I wanted to take part in a Xmas artisan exhibition in Gois I was eager to take part , and found a simple idea for a jewellery display stand , which I adapted with a friends help they were made in no time . So I am now working like crazy to get everything finished by Sunday ! The exhibition starts on Monday , which is also the day I am off on my holidays. I managed to fit in my weekly craft class. so I have a few xmasy things to pack in my case the camera I dropped last week will cost too much to fix so I have been shopping for a camera this week. I have found one I like online , so hopefully I can have it waiting for me when I arrive in England for my holiday I received an award for my craftingin Portugal blog this week . Thanks to Deborah at Container Chronicles. It was a lovely surprise . Advertisements Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
