Altered Diary

Hello...
Are you one of those people who tend to get diaries given to you for gifts? I don't know why ... but I always seem to get a few... and between you and me ... I never use them ... Unlike my Mum who would write in her diary everyday ... 
I try to keep a note of all I need to do etc., on my computer and on those big wall calendars ...
Well, last year my sweet SIL gave me a lovely diary from M&S ... it is so pretty that I didn't want to throw it away ... so I altered it ... I should have photographed it first I know ... 

I took the 'innards' out and cut the bottom half off ... that part had the year on ... 


This is the actual cover ... all I added to this was the trim 
I made a little box base to fit and put in some dividers and Voila!


Now I have a little sewing kit ...


All I needed to add was some paper, lace a pretty doily and some ribbon to hold it shut
Cute huh? 

I also got some happy mail yesterday - a birthday present from my lovely friend Kirsty ... 


Look how lovely this is wrapped! And inside is her beautiful card and this cute little purse



Beautiful!


And the sweetest kitty! Surrounded by tiny little butterflies ...

Thank You Kirsty!

And I can tell you that I saw a consultant last night about my swollen sore foot ... He seems to think I do have a fracture even though it does not show on the x ray ... so I am having an MRI scan next week ... Yipee! Finally something is getting done .. I wont have any results until the 15th Feb ... but I've waited 4 months now so I think I can cope for another 2 weeks ... 
Now I have to get my project for Thursday club organised ... I can't let them down ... sore foot or not!

Have a wonderful day
