Gifts for Friends

Good morning,

As you may have already read previously on my blog, each year I like to make at least one batch of Christmas presents, (scroll down to see my festive fudge bags) but I did want to make one special present for a dear friend of mine who I met through her fabulous blog, she also happens to be one of my fellow DT members at Simply Stampin' too. Her name is Ruth and you can check out her amazing blog by clicking here, I have received so many wonderful gifts throughout the year, that I wanted to make her something that no one else would have. So I decided to cover a notebook for her.

Every crafter needs to make notes and jot down websites they have seen something inspiring on, so I thought it would make a useful gift! The colours are much brighter IRL, this photo was taken at night before I rushed off to the post office to make sure she got it well before the big day, I'm sure that I'm safe posting it now.

Why not decorate one for yourself? xx

Kelly, I absolutely LOVE my notebook, thank you ever so much for making it just for me! So much thought, time and effort went into making it and I truly appreciate it. I really love how you made a butterfly trail with the rhinestones. It was the perfect gift - practical yet beautiful - and it made me feel so special!

I must confess I haven't written in it yet - I have it out near my desk and I just keep admiring it LOL! However, I will use it as it will be so much better than my present system of scribbling things on Post It notes or scraps of paper and then losing them!
Thanks so much hun! Ruth x
