The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 276 - Note book.

Tomorrow is the last day of school before our 6 week break, and I have everyone home today with a couple of sick kids. A lot of Christmas movies have been watched and now we have Chrissy songs blaring too.

The gorgeous bath bombs I made last week for Juliet's teacher did not fare well in the 42 degree heat so they ended up going a bit warped and look a bit sad. I couldn't bring myself to make the same thing twice so today I made her something else.

A notebook and fabric cover with green patchwork.



She is also getting some of this delicious Christmas bark (melted white chocolate and crushed candy canes).

I also re-did mum's family tree and I'm much happier with it. The leaves were too dominant in the last one.

Hope you are all well and not as exhausted as I feel.


  1. I'm sorry you have sick children, and hope they get better quickly...and also hope you get some rest!!

    It's sad about the bath bombs not doing well, but, OTOH, look at that gorgous notebook cover!!! Teacher will be able to use that much, much longer than the bombs.


  2. Thanks Joyce. My baby girl will have completed her first year of school in less than an hour. How the year has flown once again.
