Where else I've been Wintering

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities Blog Event)

I have been preparing lots for this weekend (as you've probably guessed), but I've had a few other winter projects to complete for elsewhere too, and this hour I thought I'd share them with you!

I'm sorry to those who are regular readers and might have seen some of these before, but I shall start with something you're unlikely to have seen (I haven't told you about it, but you may have heard of it elsewhere!)...

Snowed In Magazine:


Ashley Pahl's free online Snowed In Magazine is full of extremely lovely seasonal delights, including crafts and recipes. It also features a pendant by me! It's completely different to the other pendants I've shown this weekend, you'll have to go and check out the magazine if you want to see it!

Speaking of magazines, I was also in the Christmas special of the Popular Crafts magazine (sadly the last ever issue of Popular Crafts) with this mini-album:



It documents our Christmas decorations. Sorry you can't see this magazine online, it's only available in UK stores I believe, but I did blog about our Christmas decorations as my 10 things on the 10th post last December - you can see it here. 

Finally, in case you missed them, I featured in two wintry posts on the SJ Crafts Blog this week. One was all about me, and how I'm Inspired by Winter, which is here, and the other was the latest SJ Crafts challenge, on the theme of Christmas, which is here and features this layout by me:


Please check all them out if you haven't seen them already!

Be Inspired:
  • Create a mini book which could be used as a decoration, to document your winter or Christmas
  • Put a giant gold bow onto a project
  • Find something in a magazine to use as inspiration for a winter-related activity

Don't forget that a comment on this post, or on any of my posts from this weekend, will count as an entry into the Grand Giveaway {NOW CLOSED} - but only if you've registered your interest in winning that here!

I'll be back at 5pm! (I hope!) x
