I have been getting the teachers x-mas pressies ready. I altered & personalised these lovely wooden suitcases and diaries. Will put diaries inside, a box of handmade cards and a small handcream.
Every year I also like to alter a diary for myself, for 2008 I made this one:
Used Love Elsie papers and I thought it was the prettiest I've ever owned. But today I altered my 2009 one and now I like it better !!!
I used the left overs from Anita's class, which are Prima Papers I think. I even did a bit of crochet. Used my new "Sparkle" mod podge,the bling cant be seen on the pic, but it's gorgeous !!
I had told my crafty friends that this year I wanted to bring my Birthday a month forward. We have a Birthday club and I really wanted to have my B-day cards separate from the X-mas cards. I have recieved 10 so far and believe it or not, something sooo small has made a huge difference in my attitude towards B-day being so close to x-mas. I feel more positive about the festive season this year, and actually looking forward.
These are the master pieces:
THANK YOU MUAHHH !!
