In my creative space

I've been busy creating a gift for my garden loving friend.  When I first saw these spoons ages ago on Cathie's blog I made a mental note to give them a try one day.  So when I picked up this bunch of cutlery at an op shop the other week I knew they would make the perfect markers.  I found this tutorial helpful when making the markers if you wanted to give them a try for yourself.  My tip would be to put an old towel under the spoon when stamping the spoon, it helped to keep the spoon from slipping and just go slowly those letters are only small and move a lot too.
The finished spoons all wrapped up in twine with some seed packets.

For my creative inspiration pop by here to have a look
