Sometimes Things Don't Finish As Planned

For part of my mum's birthday present, I started to decorate an accordion book with black and white pics of my kids taken when they were born, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 9 months. Unfortunately, the first lot of ribbon I placed on each side on the middle photo, did not like folding up and as I was unable to peel the double sided tape back up, I put some other ribbon over the top of the glue. I had to cut the pages from the accordian book and here is the final result. Sorry for the ordinary pics. Just as we were about to leave to go and have tea with mum for her birthday I realised I hadn't taken any pics of my creation yet. So here it is, one side for Logan and one for Ky.

Merry Christmas From My Daughter

Trying Out Some Of My Hodgepodge Hardware

One of the new advantages of my little boy being placed on a special diet, is these small formula tins which are a great size for decorating. I have made this one up for my sister who's nickname is Mit for her to put on her office desk for scissors, pens etc. She is also a book nut so I have made her a matching bookmark. The back side has "bookmark" stamped on it. I used my first 2 pieces of Hodgepodge Hardware on this little project.

I've just come back to edit this initial posting as I have now made a matching post it note holder. This is a very easy little project courtesy of Keesh. Here is the link to her easy to follow instructions.
