Go Ask Alice...

everything I sent.. ignore the books.. they are everywhere

Things I made for the Alice in Wonderland Craft Swap...aka how I'm a totally crap photographer and have no skills with image editors and blogger hates me

Ok perhaps things aren't quite that bad but blogger isn't liking me this morning and my photography skills appear to be greatly lacking... next time I will have Matt take photos for me. He can be easily bribed with baked goods and chocolate.

I did really enjoy crafting for the Alice Swap, I felt really inspired to craft and create and just doodle things in my journal and sketchbook. I was really happy with the needle book, the bookmark (made with Anna's fabulous Alice Tape) and the primitive style Cheshire cat in fact a friend of mine asked me to make her one as well so that's not too bad for my lack of sewing skills. :o)

My favourite character is the Cheshire Cat so yours in particular tickles me :D Have literally today just blogged my own bits that I sent a swapee from a different Alice swap. Loving all this fabby Alice gorgeousness that's around at the moment!

Have you seen the film? We went last weekend. OMG it was fantastic.

I LOVE the cheshire cat!

Carmen said...

It's definitely literature - you can swing that :P

You will LOVE the film. Be prepared to come away in love with the Mad Hatter. I am. Totally! *g* I had the bestest surprise as I didn't know Alan Rickman voiced a character and I have loved him for many years. That was a real squeal moment. Much to my OH's embarrassment! :D
