I felt it needed something else. Less is more is not a concept i use often.
Bye for now x

Above and below is my christmas tag. I made some cover buttons for Rebecca to use on her own craft projects.
Frankincense - Something sensory
Meet Xiao Hou zi - little Monkey. She was not happy about having her photo taken, as you can see.
Frankincense needed to be sensory, so she jingles and jangles when you shake her!
Gold - Something sparkly
Gold was a tricky one for me. It had to sparkle (obviously) but I just wasn't sure how to portray it.
I wanted something that wasn't just christmassy, and could be used all year round.
My final idea was a diary and address book with just a little sparkle.
Diary An autumn (or fall for non british folks) tree with gold heart leaves
A little gold heart bookmark (opened on my birthday just so you know hint hint hee hee)
Silver Heart flowers, I think you can just about see them...
Myrhh - a gift for your 'swapee'
Well Myrhh...um, well i forgot to take photos. Wow, i amaze myself at how dopey I am sometimes.
But it was a wreath, made from fabric flowers. This was the one that caused me nightmares...i just hope it made it okay to Rebecca without falling apart. I will ask her to send me photos!
Well, it's late and I must get ready for the oncoming week of work *stamps feet and has a tantrum*, until my next post, toodle looo x

But here's another sneak peak...
Silly me also forgot to take a photo of the last gift as I was in such a rush to send it.
There is a reason I am blonde.
Ta ta for now x
