I still had a few bits n bobs to finish off, and did that today, I beaded the hanger, placed a beaded dangley bit from the denim pocket (bottom right).

A Laugh is a Smile that Bursts

I made some post it note holders in my shed today ..

postit5

I made two different kinds, the first one has space for a mini gel pen, I don’t have any yet, so I used a micron pen until I get some..

postit4

The second type is an easel post it holder, you can decorate these as elaborate as you wish, I kept my two simple …

postit2

I used a wooden frame and painted it white and framed it onto a nice wee saying

postit3

I love the sentiment on this one…. A Laugh is a Smile that bursts

That’s me for the night 🙂 as always, thanks for popping round
