Claudia's Best of 2016

Servus, hi and salut!

I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones and are looking forward to some relaxed and peaceful holidays!

I joined this fab DT this year in May after guesting in March (which I enjoyed so much) and I have been enjoying to be on such a talented and relaxed team, to work with the wonderfully inspiring Calico Craft Parts, to have lovely Louise as our DT coordinator (taking great care of us all) and to have a wonderful boss like Helen ever since!

So my first pick for my personal Top 3 among my DT makes for 2016 may come as no surprise - it's the "Forest Love - Part Two" make I did as guest designer - and which made me realize how much the Calico Craft Parts spark my imagination and inspire me to create.

My second pick is the project I had the most fun doing - "Pigs in Space!". Being a great fan of the Muppets Show and especially their "Pigs in Space" series with First Mate Miss Piggy and Captain Hogthrob facing many perils in outer space I enjoyed creating this particular project very much!

And my last and third pick is the "Looking Inside the Box is Looking Outside?" deep sea tunnel box. My son and I are both great lovers of all seep sea life and watch every documentary there is (especially the fab BBC ones) - so making this box was a must - especially as the Calico Craft Parts used with it are utterly fab! And maybe one day my son will be the little diver you can spot to the left....who knows? 

Thank you very much for stopping by today and revisiting these makes with me! I wish you all a happy and creative 2017 and we will meet each other here again in two weeks with the new year already in full swing! ;)

Hugs and happy crafting!
