Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Evidence that I have actually been busy.....

Here are a few bits and pieces that I have made as Christmas pressies for people, for obvious reasons I haven't been able to upload them before!
Firstly Box number 25 of the Advent Calendar, which couldn't be opened until the keys were obtained from an altered keyring which was in Box number 24 but I think there was some severe cheating going on, cos this seemed to have opened on Christmas eve......
Anyway, it's made of silver clay and silver wire and silver beads. I think it looks a bit better in real life, think I need a lesson in photography!

Wine Boxes seem to be the Christmas gift of the year if you look at Heidi's and Katherine's blogs, fortunately we don't share too many friends LOL. But here is the one I made for some very dear friends called Chris and Len, hence the CL at the top...... geddit?? cl ... wine??? Well I thought it was clever LOL

Then finally a couple of 'book' clocks, I found these neat 'book' boxes a while ago and decided to turn them into clocks. These are both much the same but taken at slightly different angles.

And finally, my favourite picture of Christmas 2008, my lovely, lovely non techno (bah humbug computer games, buy them a board game) Daddy, thoroughly enjoying playing on the kids new Wii.....
