ITS A SLEIGH - for want of a better title hahaha

Helloooooo!!!!!  I have been off in Christmas mode again with my next project!  As soon as I saw this I new I had to have one to play with :D


Its a gorgeous Christmas Sleigh from the Tando Creative Christmas 2010 range!  To get an idea of size it measures 9inches long.  It comes flat packed & is very easy to put together.  Here I have painted it with antique white acrylic (the runners are old gold) and embossed gold snowflakes onto it.  I know it looks fairly plain but it won't when its filled with goodies hahaha!  mmm...chocolates.....nuts.....mini pressies!!!  I have also sewn a little 'blanket' in some Christmasy fabric & added some lovely gold beaded braid to the ends.


If you fancy one of these take a look over HERE for stockists both in the UK & the US now!!!!

Thank you for popping over....Love & HUGS XXX

Wow, this is gorgeous. Years ago, I decorated with nothing but sleds. Wish I'd known about this product when I was decorating with them. You turned this into one lovely creation. That blanket you added is the perfect touch, adding just a tiny bit of color.

I just had to stop by and tell you how much I appreciated your warm and heartfelt comment on my blog today. I am very grateful for your thoughts. Hearing about your friend who was so lucky to have chosen Sept 10 to visit WTC put a real chill up my spine. Thank you again.

Oh you are kind to Santa making him that fabulous rug to keep his legs warm! He'll be the talk of Lapland in his new model sleigh!
I'm sure he'll fill it with extra special shiny goodies for you this year!!
