Decorations and Labels

Our christmas visiting has already started and I have been busy decorating gifts. I bought a great Sizzix die and made lots of bows and home made tags.

Some I made in different colours...

And in some I used just one colour..

I stamped some kraft tags..

And coloured them in.  

I love decorating gifts and making them look special, I have so many more I have to do!

How are your christmas preparations going?

A Great Trip to the Doctors

And no I am not pregnant! He he :-) I had to pick up a prescription this week and whilst I was waiting, I saw some books sitting all unloved on the window sill. This being one of them.

It's an old hymn book, I can't see when it was published but it's old and a bit tatty but the pages inside are beautiful...

And distressed around the edges, it looks like it has had the Tim Holtz treatment!

I asked the receptionist if it was for sale and for a fair donation it was mine! 

I was looking to use the papers in some sort of mixed media art journalling, I am so excited to be going on this course with Dyan Reaveley from Art from the Heart in less than a month.  I also thought the papers could be used make great christmas decorations.

Trouble is the book has made it this far in tact and I love it as it is, I'm not sure I can bear to tear the pages out of it. What would you do with it?

Have a great bonfire weekend.
