Lovely Links

I really enjoy visiting new blogs and discovering new things to make, and with Christmas not too far away it's always good to get some inspiration.  I thought I would share with you a few tutorials that I've bookmarked recently.

●Some plant markers using oven bake clay.  I really like this idea and so much nicer than the plastic plant marker you get when you buy the plant.
●These food covers are not only pretty but practical and much more environmentally friendly than using plastic food wrap.
●If you have fabric scraps lying around, these patchwork coasters are a great way of using them up.
●I think these ribbon bangles are a great gift idea for girls.
●Stationery is favourite of mine and this handmade notebook would make a sweet gift for a teacher who always has notes to write.

I hope these links have inspired you or given you some handmade gift ideas

  4. Catherine, thank you so much for sharing these wonderful links. There are some great ideas I'd like to try for myself there, especially the plant markers. Do you know on my to do list for today is listed 'buy Etsy herb markers' but after seeing this link, I think I might hold off and try making my own first :) Thanks for also introducing me to a few new blogs too. Enjoy your afternoon x
