Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I live in a bungalow in a sheltered housing complex which has flats on the site too, and we are having a Christmas Bazzar in December so I am busy thinking, and making things ready for it.
I found this tutorial on U Tube HERE
for making pipe cleaner candy cane tree ornaments.
Now I couldn't find the right size beads she used, in my area so I went with smaller children's ones.
Hope you think they look alright.

I love the red , and green ones, but couldn't find more of those colour beads.
One green one I did put 2 beads in between which worked quite well.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

We are gluttons for punishment! Thanks Jenny. Love and hugs Christine xx

These are beautiful Jenny so colourful and different.

I know the shop called TIGER sells little bags of beads quite reasonable.

Good luck with the bazaar.

These are great Jenny. I'm always looking for things to do with my little Granddaughter and I'm sure these could be adapted a little for her to make some with me. She's only three and she loves crafting and has dozens of pipe cleaners, so these look like a great idea, thank you for the inspiration. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
