Cheery Hand Made Gifts Ideas


Botanical Tea Mixed Media Notice Board - Graphic 45
I hope you didn't get flooded out over the weekend with all the rain we've had here in the UK. Its just non stop and is causing so much damage to so many.

on a cheerier note Graphic 45 are sharing some of the design teams spring inspired hand made gifts over on there blog today.  There's an amazing bird house and tutorial by Denise and more of my really reasonable and easy to make note board decorated in papers from the new Botanical Tea Collection.  There's also a new blog contest to take part in to.  Click here to go over to their  blog. 



I had a lovely mail this weekend from Julie all the way down under in New Zealand and lots of photos of her craft group minus one, who'd been making my French Country Folio Album.  Here they are having loads of fun.  Love your albums everyone and a huge HELLO from me to you all too xx








 I'm off over to Pink Tulip on Thursday for our layout day so if you're coming along,  see you there with your sharp scissors for a little bit of fussy cutting lol :-) 

Thanks for calling by today, and catch up again soon :-) x

    1. Morning Patricia, lovely to hear from you. Hope its sunny in your part of the country. Nice change from rain here this morn. Am running seriously behind on the getting up front, totally distracted with the development of a new Couture Album :-) Loved the pics of Julie and her group and had to share them. Am always totally amazed by the interest around the world in the albums I make. I receive the most amazing e mails every week from crafters all over the globe too. They're very touching. Enjoy today and catch up again soon xx
