My First Creative Space

Today was the day for me to take the plunge and give sharing my creative space with everyone a go, I really enjoy seeing all the creativity that people are up to. What you can see is scrapbooking paper, modge podge, a zutter cutter album cover and some rings. When you add it all up it means I am eagerly making a lockable diary for my god daughter's up and coming birthday. I was told she wanted a lockable diary and rather than buy it I was inspired by Mel to create my own. She likes fun colours and I plan on covering the album, putting in some ruled paper and using a couple of jumbo eyelets for the lock. I hope she likes it.
My other pictures show the little bibs that I made for my lovely friends newborn baby. I found this great pattern over here at Chickpea Sewing. It was fun to make and the fabric was a bit of a win, finding Micheal Miller fabric for $12 a metre at my local fabric store was pretty good.

And last but not least here is what I will end up giving to the new baby and their family a decorated tin bucket with a newspaper, some little socks, two bibs and also the tag album I made earlier. Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you all again soon.
