Hope you all had a great Christmas and happy new year!

Hello there, I am communicating to you via a smartphone! :D Unfortunately my laptop sounds like an angry helicopter, a few minutes after it is switched on, and heating up rather fast....this has been going on for awhile. So my new year resolution is to get that fan fixed!!! As it so happens I had nothing much to post about except for some 1:12 christmas crackers which I also wanted to write a tutorial about, alas it will have to be done out of season. The gift I was making for Pepper had to be scrapped due to a few mistakes I made, which I'll post about too.
 Hopefully with a happy outcome by then :) hmmmm so for now I wish you all a fantastic 2016! I'm just going to do a little experiment and see if I can get a picture of those crackers up......


Yay! It worked..I should mention I haven't had a mobile phone for many years. This is all very new to me...bit like being in the film Minority Report. I'm amazed at this technology!  takes a awhile to write something though...spell check is very, very persistent!

Hope you all had a super christmas, and big thanks to the ladies who sent me a link to the Christmas decoration boxes you made! Thoroughly enjoyed that and will link to your work once I'm back on the laptop for I do not have a clue how to do it right now :D

  1. I used to make miniature Christmas crackers, but it was tedious and frustrating. I'd REALLY like to see your technique, and I hope you DO write a tutorial...even if it is for Easter!

    1. These ones would take up an evening, the only slightly frustrating part is the rolling but you work up a little knack for it. Hopefully before easter :)

  9. Hi Sarah! I Love your Christmas Crackers! however, it must have driven you "crackers" to make them all so Absolutely Perfect, but hey.... "that's how you roll"! :D
    I know that these are tricky to do WELL, because I have TRIED to do make them myself and so I would LOVE to see how you did it.
    I only hope that your computer doesn't get too hot to handle.

    from your biggest fan

Hello Sarah, I saw your post http://amberatti.blogspot.ca/2013/12/happy-miniature-christmas.html, and would like to know if you would allow me to use some of the pics to make a page in the Minitreasures wiki advent calendar 2016. Here is a link to 2015 calendar http://minitreasures.pbworks.com/w/page/101217031/advent_calendar2016

  13. hi Sarah, so nice to 'see' you again! Very happy new year to you too, that it may be a better one! I LOVE your crackers, they're so perfect! I like them even better than many full sized ones. Hope you get that fan fixed, would be nice for you to be able to use your laptop again. Haha, I can only imagine how sci-fi it all must be if you haven't had a mobile phone a few years, so much has changed indeed! :D Enjoy!
