Mini note pads...

Happy Sunday sweet friends ...
Not a lot to report ... I am feeling much better and I am so grateful for your well wishes .. I know my problem is often stress related and there are some ongoing family issues that tear at my heart ... but as my sweet dear Aunt often reminds me "... no one said life would be easy..."
 It helps to know you guys are there and creating things ... keeping my hands and mind busy is a great healer ... 
I have been practising using those pliers I told you about ... there sure is a knack of using them and so far I have made a few dangly charms ... they are far from perfect ... but practice makes perfect right? Anyway I thought I'd share some of the sticky note holders I told you about in my last post ... I just can't stop making these ... 



I am waiting on some clasps I have ordered for the charms ... then each book will have a different "dangly ... thingy" ... 


and a look at the inside


There is a table sale at the local church in September to raise funds for the restoration of the bell tower ... I am thinking of going along and selling these books along with my cards and things ... what do you think? ... I do make to order for friends and the like but I'm a little shy of sitting there selling my own things ... am I crazy or what? 
 Before I leave you ... I want to say a Big Thank You ... to Jeanneke ... one very talented lady for sure ...
who sent me these handmade yo yo's


Aren't they just the sweetest! ... I know I will put these to good use ... Thank you Jeanneke ... such a very kind gesture ...

Have a wonderful Sunday my friends 
Blessings

LOVE your pretty little notebooks. The sweet charms on the side just make it perfect. Did I tell you that I used to bead before I got into card making? My mom and MIL also love to bead.
Glad you are feeling better. Sounds like you have a bit of stress. Did you read the quote on the graphic at CR84FN? I actually said a little something about that on my post last night. :)
Hugs~

What a therapy crafting is! I love how you are adding beads etc to your work - I have been thinking about making jewelry these last days, I wonder how difficult is really is.

Stella said...

I will never ever get tired of your notebooks; these are F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!! I aint a surprise when I tell you that I just LOVE the blue one.....But the others made me sigh too :)
I know what you mean with selling your own creations. But everything you create turns out gorgeous and I think you're selling your whole "stash" in the blink of an eye!

Love the y'-yo's sent by Jeanneke; enjoy your goodies!
XXXXX

I just love your sticky note holders. That is such a great idea. Thanks for the tip!

Sylvia said...

Your little notebooks are beautiful and fun, Ros!Love all the beads and things. Go sell at the church, it is for a good cause and you will get to visit with people you don't always see. I do understand what you are saying about sitting there. I once had a lady in Scotland tell me I must be desperate to be selling my things! I had to laugh to myself because I was enjoying every minute of being there. Glad you are better today. Hugs!
