Ok, so it's early (and in fact, a lot earlier than I'd usually plan), but I want to do as handmade as possible this Christmas. So that means starting now.
Have made a couple of lovely pretty beaded bookmarks for gifts (hopefully the recipients won't see this blog entry!). These are the first ones I've tried but I'm really happy with them, and so am planning a couple of others for people I know who are partial to good books.
This week I've also been sorting out the photos of my baby that I had printed out. They're all in an album...I was intending to scrapbook them, but there's so many and it would take too long to do one page let alone 60, that I've just put the photos in the album and have journalled, doodled and decorated around them. It's not something I've really done before, but I'm enjoying it, and I can keep things quite simple. I may add some different papers in, as well as some bits of stamping and embellishments, just do it post sticking in the photos. They're all photo cornered, so it's quite easy to scrapbook each once I've a bit more time.
Anyway, feel free to look back to Handmade Monday and see what everyone else has been up to.
