So I’ve finally finished the handmade bookmark for my son. Yay! He was really pleased with it and is already enjoying using it.
Here’s what it looks like now that it’s finished:
I suggested that he choose his own ribbon and he chose one that had ‘with love’ printed on it I decided to laminate it in the hopes that it would last a bit longer and not get bent and broken too quickly but my son assures me that he knows how much work I put into it and that he will look after it. I won’t hold it against him if he can’t though as it will give me an excuse to make another one for him!

In the lead up to Christmas my sister-in-law kindly asked me to make her some custom greeting cards to send to friends and family. I was so grateful and relieved. Relieved I guess because it meant that she was happy with the ones I did for her the year before
She said she didn’t mind if I produced the same designs but I thought I’d do some that were similar and some that were a bit different. What I liked most about this order was using decorative papers, colours that were not strictly traditional and using a lot of collaged elements. There were five designs with three cards of each design – fifteen cards in all. Here they are:
She was pleased when she received them so good result! I hope whoever she sent them to, like them too
