Sweets for my Sweet...

I love this jar!

I painted the lid with white paint then stuck all kinds of lovely stuff on it.

There's dried rose petals and buds, buttons, paper flowers, pearl embellishments and more buttons...

...and the jar is filled with love heart sweets.

Mini Notebooks

After a long break, back to crafting!

Here are 3 mini notebooks I made, borrowing the idea from my son, who has made several for himself.

I have used my usual embellishments, ribbons and some scraps of vintage lace.
I even ragged each page edge on the larger of the oblong books but resorted to shaped scissors for the other two.

I doubt they'll ever get written in but I may use them as mini photo albums when I finally get around to transferring my old photos to the computer!
