...getting back to 'normal'

Firstly, thank you all so much for all the kind words of support. Last week was horrid and receiving emails, comments and tweets of support has been really, really lovely.

Thank you, thank you, thank you :)

Secondly, what to do in a crisis, sew of course!!

This 'notebook texta roll rap thingy' is a present for Miss 5 friend for his 6th birthday

Party was on Saturday, I made it last night

In my defence, I didn't get the invitation until 4pm on Friday

My pattern, been tweaking and tweaking since Christmas, think I nearly have it right

Thinking of selling them, with the handmade notebooks, what do you think? What do you think people be happy to spend on something like this? Mmmm don't know, being thinking and talking about it since Christmas...xox

Oh I like the male theme fabrics you have used! Great idea. not sure about price etc Sorry.

I love these and I think you have tweaked the pattern perfectly - looks absolutely beautiful!

I just read this awesome post on finding your right price, here is the link to the free PDF:

Hope that helps you determine the price. You know how much work you put into it and must feel good and rewarded by how much people will pay you for it.

I gave Pieter a handmade covered notebook thingy for his birthday a few years ago and would love to do the same again. Of course would also love one for me to do some journaling and stuff... sounds great!

Hope the sewing helped you to feel better!

Heaps of love xxx
