I found a use for my newly acquired books. They are weighing down my home-made envelope while the glue sets.
The paper is actually very thin card that was in the centre of a wrapping paper tube. I kept it and it has come in handy. It kept curling up (and I wasn't going to give up and use different paper), hence the need for the books.
While making a last minute card I upturned my 'bit' tin and stars burst forth all over the floor. I've been picking them up for the last 5 minutes but I think I might give up and get out the hoover.
I'll save the planet another way by making this card an everlasting one which will go back and forth until one of us gives up and doesn't send it back.
I am linking my Advent Garland to KC's Court this year for a really Advent Bloggy Christmas.
PS A very warm welcome to my new follower. We don't always play hidey-peep with crocheted snowmen!
