With this goal in mind, I had been racking my brain for gift ideas for the children's school teachers. I wanted to do something other than chocolates, or wine, or teacher coffee mugs, which is what I usually resort to because of my lack of organisation. NOT THIS YEAR!!!
The very talented Tracey (check out her blog http://alusciousjourney.blogspot.com) has come up with a brilliant idea! She made a beautiful card set as a gift for her daughters teacher, using the MM 5th Avenue Journaling Book. I saw these in real life the other day, and couldn't help but think to myself..."what a marvellous idea", AND "I have got a few journaling books in my stash", AND "what a great way to use up some stuff!" So, with her permission, I set about creating my own :)
As much as I would have liked to copy hers (they are stunning), I thought I had better put my own spin on them...
Kids are back at school today, so I am hoping to get into a bit of stitching...if I can ignore the housework for a while :)
