This may seem odd but I have never actually owned a Christmas tree before this year or had one in my house over the holiday period as I rarely have people over – it’s just been easier for me to visit everyone else.
This year though I wanted to bring Christmas home, and also bring the homemade into Christmas.
As I’ve mentioned before, I do love a good book. I have however noticed recently that I appear to have been collecting them a lot, but not reading them at a pace to match.
Having recently cancelled my TV subscription I decided that it would be a good time to start catching up on those unread works.
This thought of reading always gives me an idea to make a bookmark. On looking through my photographic archives recently I discovered some photos of a book mark that I made using stamps and inks so I thought that I would share this little make with you today.
I was having a play with my paper bead roller the other week and thought that making little Christmas tree decorations from hand rolled paper beads would be a nice change from the usual round baubles so I set to work plotting and playing again.
Here in this post is an overview of how I made them and what they ended up like.
