Hello and welcome to Magpieheaven! I'm sharing what's on my washing machine top with you this morning, but if you're in any doubt why I might be doing this, then hotfoot, or hotclick it over to the wondrous Julia's Stamping Ground HERE! You'll find 'deskers' from all over the world ready to reveal all - all that's on and around their work-places, that is! And you might just make some new friends too. Recently I bought a little notebook from a London gallery. I have a weakness for notebooks and I like to have an attractive one to carry around in my handbag - you see lovely quotes and beautiful things in the most unlikely places and I know I'll never remember unless I jot them down. This one had such a lovely cover, an early Picasso painting of a harlequin. However, within days all I had was a collection of loose pages; a piece of cardboard and what turned out to be no more than a postcard used as a front cover! I thought, would it be so very hard to do better than that? There are lots of Youtube tutorials on making books, and Monique over at Morgan le Fae's Trinkets makes some absolutely gorgeous ones of all shapes and sizes. I've been wanting to challenge myself to do this for ages so I'm now taking the plunge - and I have to say I'm loving it!
Our Creative Corner where I've entered it for the 'Forgotten Things' challenge. Thank you so very much those of you who have said such lovely things about it: it has a special significance to me.
