Journal Page and charity project

Hi All. Hope your new year started off well and continues that way. We had a nice day yesterday as it was my birthday so we went for a special meal where I chose things I wouldn't normally choose at all. Thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts today

At Art Journal Journey I am the host this month and the theme Winter Wonderland has already attracted some wonderful Journal page ideas.

Today I have made a digital page with a quote from the beautiful Snow Queen fairy story. You can use any medium you like to make a page so long as it follows the rules. Hope you will join us.

At Moo Mania and More anything goes for their theme this time.

My daughter is one of the team of fund raisers for the Cat Protection League and every year I try to think up an idea that will sell at their Spring Fair. I have made tea bag holders in the past so adapted the pattern to make holders for lense cleaners. I designed a spectacles paper then printed it on card in various colours. The original pattern for the tea bag holder was from Pretty Pieces years ago but I have adapted it over the years. I can't even find the company now so can't add a link-sorry.

Have a really nice day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Great creations Chrissie to the start of the crafty year and love your project for the fair. I still intend donating to the nursing home when dad was with us, as they need money for equipment and raise a lot from the fairs...well done.xx

  2. Both of your creations are great. Love the beautiful journal page for Art Journal Journey, and of course, the spectacle wiper is great fun, a lovely idea as a fund raiser. Glad you enjoyed your special day yesterday, hugs, Valerie

  16. Happy new year Chrissie. Wonderful journal page. Your "everything goes" makes me laugh.

  17. It's nice to finally "meet" you, Chrissie. Looks like I'll be visiting your blog a LOT this month due to AJJ. That is a very clever project you created and nice of you to make them for the fund raiser.

  18. your journal page is magic! loving the other projects as well, very clever! xo

  19. Your glass cleaner kit is a wonderful idea for a fundraiser item, Chrissie. You are quite clever.

    Blessings and fun,
    Marianne xo

  20. Belated birthday wishes, Chrissie - I really ought to be able to remember that it's the first of the year! Glad to hear you pushed the boat out with your menu choices, and I hope it paid off.

    I love your Snow Queen page - those eyes are riveting. I can remember loving the name Kai when I first heard the story. I couldn't understand why the girl had to have such an ugly name (I think I thought Gerda sounded like a herd of cows), and the boy such a beautiful one. I've come to like Gerda now, and Kai remains one of my favourite names.

    Brilliant idea on the glass cleaner pockets!
