Ewe'l Log & Blog Candy

Just a bit of fun as a Stocking Filler for Christmas
The gold roll is a 12 x 12 scrapbook paper cut in half then rolled into a cylinder and glued in place. the Ewe is made with a flower punch for hair and feet a tear drop punch for ears or a heart cut in half would do, the face is the Stampin Up Oval cut in half and the body is a Nestabilities circle, googly eyes and black cord for the legs.


This is what is inside my Ewe'l Log.

Linen Tea Towels from All Tea Towels did I mention I love these, they remind me of home when I was young.

Form-Ewe-La-One, I got a few of these in the hopes that Chris will help with the washing up as he is an avid fan.



This one just cracks me up, check out those cuties hanging on the washing line.


Al over at All Tea towels has given me 5 Tea Towels to give away (Ooooo Stocking Fillers)

All you have to do is head over there find your favourite design and come back and tell me which one it is.

I will then draw 5 people via Random Generator on Wednesday 25th November to receive their favourite.

First to comment..Yay! Those sheep tea towels are too cute. What a huge range of designs available it was very hard to choose one. I am going for the Oak Leaves and Acorns....love that colour green.

Regina said...

oh, that are fun Tea Towels! My favorite is with the sheeps.
Greetings Regina

Kimbo said...

I can't believe there are so many to choose from. The nostalgia ones are great but then I was torn between the Owls and Fashion Victim. SO I'm going for one of the ones you've shown - Hand Wash Only - so appropriate. Thanks for letting us know about these wonderful products. Kim x

I can't go past the Typhoo Tea one, it brings so many memories back of when I was growing up in Yorks, I have been in Australia now for 29yrs but still remember the Typhoo tea, in fact I still have a shopping bad advertising it........love Jenni

Louise said...

Aren't they fab, just had a lovely time looking at all the designs, so hard to pick a favourite but loved the nostalgia ones, especially the Ladybird book - Dip in & Washing up, I used to love those Ladybird books & had the Dip in one!

Great candy, and loved your fun Ewe'l Log to hold it in!

Suzanne said...

Too many to choose, lol. I think I would choose the lab one as labs are my fav animals or maybe it would be the collie one as they are next fav, lol. If I was to chose a christmas one it would have to be santa sleeping...or maybe the snowman family. Ha, told you I couldn't decide.
Thanks for the chance to win

Karin F. said...

I went & looked. First I thought my favorite was the "dip in"....but then I saw the "Autumn Linen" and then there's the Seasons Bleatings...oh and the Christmas Cat & Dog...but there was also the "I didn't touch the Tree Cat". And now I can't make up my mind ....so I guess that lets me out.
hugs Karin
P.S. I love your blog.

Sam said...

hmm, it's a toss up between the naughty cat under the tree and the Twelve Days of Christmas!!

My favourite has to be "I'm slimming tomorrow" as its a permenant phrase heard in my house when I am caught out breaking yet another diet lol

Mad Mary said...

It's very difficult to pick a favourite but as i am a cat lover i just love the "I'm Slimming Tomorrow" I have put on a lot of weight this year and this one just made me giggle.

Claire said...

Hi Jak - I couldn't resist the "only one of us can look good at a time, it's me or the house" chortle. Usually neither! Or maybe the "no puffin smoking" one (just like puffins). I love a lot of them and although I live in Australia am seriously considering sending a couple of these to friends in the UK (who couldn't love a tea towel like this for Chrissie?). Enjoyed your y'ewl log - wonder if I can adapt this for puffins?

Myrna said...

Hi Jak,
The little black cat and lemons reminds me of my own little black cat.
Love your blog
Myrna

trish said...

Hi Jak,
Your log is a smashing idea- it looks so good. I had a lovely time going through the tea towels and to my surprise I found out it's only approx 15 miles from where I live- small world and all that!! Hard to choose a favourite, probably the form-ewe-la-one which I would give to my daughter-in-law as she's besotted with it, or the gorgeous Rennie MacIntosh design for myself!
Hugs,
Trish

Anne said...

Hi Jak, I bookmarked the site when you mentioned it the last time as the towels are lush. My fav is the Mackintosh Lilac or the Robertsons Golly. Choices, choices. Hugs x

Anonymous said...

Anne Marie said...

Love the wrapping idea too Jak!!

mgcreative said...

hmm..i think the berry jam is my fave :)
thx for the chance :)

Cheri Howard said...

OMGoodness! Too cute! I love the Hens towel - my mom is gaga over chickens, so this would be a little giftie for her stocking!

Craftie Annie said...

Dear Jak
Brill as ever, a great idea for christmas pressies! The only problem is so many to choose from. After serious searching my favourite has to be the Hand Wash Only one... it just oozes fun! Many thanks again not least for the wrapping idea!
Love and hugs

Hi Jak,
What a fantastic selection they have. My favourite has to be the cat with the caption "I'll Diet tomorrow"
I start with good intentions in the morning but one of the girls i work with makes fantastic cup cakes and keeps bringing them in for us to sample. No willpower me. So carry on as normal and vow to myself "I'll diet tomoroow!!!!!"
Luv
Karen xx
