Well, a slight gap between posts... life, eh?  Just gets in the way sometimes!  Lots has happened, lots of sleeping has taken place, lots of missing doing things has happened.  However it's not all bad - I must remember this!

I do have a project for the new challenge at Crafty Ribbons Challenges - little note book, to share with you today.  It started out like this:

a freebie from the Daffodil Appeal.  Hate getting mail shots from charities.  I know they don't do it for this reason, but it always makes me feel really guilty.  I thought if I changed the cover it would be better...

LOVE his bird paper.  The old me would have bought two or three sheets and then hoarded it, afraid to cut it up and nt nowing how to do it justice.  The new me cut it up!!

And added a little pocket inside.  I'm going to use the note book for lists of birds I see and invariably I pick things up too.  Maybe a feather or leaf.

I added some lace and 3mm satin, the cut off strip from the bottom of the 12 x 12 sheet, a few layers of tissue paper, and words cut from a book. 

As normal I used red backed tape, the super sticky stuff, to attach my ribbon.

 It runs all the round the back and ties at the side.

Thanks for stopping by - hope to see you at your blog soon!


  1. I know what you mean about charity mailings. I don't like to throw them away, but feel guilty using them.

    I think the notebook is perfect.

    Hope life goes a bit calmer for you hun.

  2. Your little book looks cute.I love all the crochet trims on it.
