Last Minute Christmas Projects

Do you have all your planning and preparation for Christmas done? Got time for a home decor project before the big day? Here are some fun suggestions for you:

1. Make a Curled Paper Wreath or Paper Cone Wreath for an inside door or wall. Putting these babies outside might not be a good idea!

2. Christmas Stars. Use these as wall or window decorations/

3. Make some Decorative Candles to round out a display you have already set up, or as table decorations or last minute gifts.

4. Make some adhesive free Paper Chains. You can make these any length you like. Make them long enough to wrap around your tree or be strewn across a doorway or to decorate a wall. Children might like to join you in making paper chains too.

Whatever you are doing this week, have a great time, make some memories and don't forget to take some photos to scrap in the New Year.

Merry Christmas!

2018 Cards for Troops - one month to go!

Hi everyone!

We have received another lovely package of cards from Barbara O, who has already sent us some wonderful cards for our Troops this year. Thank you, Barbara!

These are the last few weeks for gathering cards for 2018. But don't stop maling if you are inspired! After the cut off date, we will keep any cards received for the 2019 cards for Troops drive.

Thank you again to all the generous people who make Cards for our Troops. My heart is full because of you, and our Troops are going to be blessed.

Good News! We have 700+ Cards for the Troops So Far!

Today my friend Kim sent me 76 photos of the cards you generous people have sent to go towards the collection we will send to the Troops in October. Thank you all so very much!

I have emailed Julie, Colleen and Anita to let them know their cards have arrived safely.

I will send a thank you to those of you who gave me your addresses for mailing. That means Michelle and her Mother-In-Law, Barbara, Patricia, Margaret and Di will be hearing from me by snail mail as I will post something to you by the end of this week.

I am also going to update the Cards for Troops page this week with a few photos and a list of the names of those who have sent cards for the Drive so far.

Thank you all for your understanding to date. I would normally have acknowledged receipt of your cards, but there has been illness and a death in my family and I am still dealing with the aftermath of that. I am hoping to be back home in my own house by the end of September and business at PaperCraftCentral will resume as normal from there.

In the meantime, when I get a few spare moments with my craft supplies, I am making Christmas cards for the Troops. There is still time to make more before October, right?

Thank you again, everyone. You are amazing and very much appreciated.

Paper Twists August Issue

The August Issue of Paper Twists is going to be delayed, if not cancelled. I do apologise. My dear Mother passed away and I am struggling to process all of what that means as well as complete practical tasks that must be done for her now.

Crafting can be a solace at times like this and I am hoping to find time to create soon. I look forward to that peace.

I will be back in time for the September issue of Paper Twists.

In the meantime, if you have not yet subscribed to my monthly newsletter, I invite you to do so this month.

Keep on crafting, friends.
