7 days to Christmas

18 Dec

With the last weekend of shopping until the big Day, how about these recycled notepads as a stocking filler gift, or even to use yourself to jot down those last minute bits and bobs you still need to buy.  Just as useful all year round too for shopping lists, doodles, song lyrics, poems…

Find a selection on my Folksy SHOP.  If you would like a special one making up with a different message, let me know and I will see what I can do…

I’ve been sewing and stamping

NEW CREATIONS

Getting ready for the double event weekend thats just gone, I was manically sewing new ‘felt bib’ necklaces – using reclaimed felt for their backings, and vintage/reclaimed buttons to embelish, finished with co-ordinating new ribbon. They are a new experiment for me – what do you think?

I also want to expand my stationery range, so have sourced some simple, cute little notepads (made from recycled paper/card of course) which I’ve then embellished with tags (also recycled), and then hand stamped little messages onto them.  Simple but effective.

I’m also developing a ‘basic’ range of cards which are simpler to make and don’t have inserts (unlike my other cards), so will be that bit more affordable – I will update my Folksy shop, so keep checking to see the new designs…
