New year, new stationery!

I always have to have a new note pad to start a new year. It feels like the pages of last years book are so previous. So this year I decided to go for two new notebooks. One for all my new classes and one for all the instructions for mini books and techniques I have scribbled down and spread over several books. Time to get organised! So I'll spend my evenings writing with love that only a new notebook can bring. I couldn't resist the matching pencil case, stationery set & colouring pencils in a tin. All half price in Sainburys.

Also, am I promised myself, I've been trying to finish off projects. I've had a kit which I put together aaaaages ago from when we all visited the Natural History Museum in London. It's made of Buzz and Bloom Dinosaur mini book, Basic Grey Archaic pad and rub ons, and this dino ribbon..

So when I went for a crafty day at my lovely friend Dawnie's I took this kit. I only actually managed to paint the book though. Jo on the other hand was the only one to finish anything.

In other news Marion was fab on QVC on Friday. She is off to CHA this week to find amazingly lush stash for the shop. Also Jimmy Cliff has self confirmed for Glastonbury this year. This makes me very happy! - posted with love and bugs from Bugphone, my iPhone.

Love that stationary, I have a thing for that too :-) The dinosaur mini book looks good, I can't wait to see it finished! See you tomorrow! Tracey xx

I've started doing mini books this year too, I didn't realise you could get kits though, have been making all mine from scratch!

You always make such beautiful looking things, am in awe. Also quite worried about what on earth I'm going to do for your 'pay it forward' gift, talk about intimidating!!!!
