Halloween, Notes and so Cute!

Hello friends
Happy Halloween!
Little pumpkin at the ready.
I have some sweets for the trick or treaters, I think I may have bought far too many...
oh what a shame if I have to finish them off!
I'm still on my 'Domestic Goddess' theme!  
This time I put together a note book.  
Such a pretty paper from Papermania's Happy Days collection. 
I used it to cover two pieces of chipboard, inked the edges and then inserted the 
binding with my Bind It All.
To decorate it is Nested Tea Cups and Donna's Alphas
I'm a big fan of making books - coming up in January I will have details of many classes featuring books.

Now on to something very cute.....
Kim mentioned the other day she was going to see her new puppy - here he is! 
Only 3 weeks old so not ready to leave his mummy just yet.
He is a Poodle/Labrador cross and currently nameless. 
Kim has decided to wait to name him, when his character develops. 
It is impossible not to look at the photos and feel all gooey inside! 
I've asked Kim to send further photos as and when she has them.
Perhaps we need a pet gallery!?

This Sunday I have the first of my Advent Frame workshops.  
Not only we will be creating the 25 boxes and decorating them but we will also be customising the 
frame with nice goodies too.  I've been dabbling with various ideas.   
There is one place left this Sunday (all later Advent Frame classes are fully booked).
Please drop me an email if you are interested.
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, the notebook is another lovely gift to make, your pumpkin is scary. I love your idea of a pet gallery, my two Lhasa Apsos are so cute. Looking forward to seeing the decoration on the Advent Frames as I have decorated mine as well.

Morning Christine, absolutely went all gooey looking at the photos of Kim's puppy. He is gorgeous, sooooo cute. Bet you can't wait to get him home Kim! Looking forward to seeing more pics of him as he grows up. I love the idea of a pet gallery too.
Another lovely project today. I do not have a bind it all but it looks like a good investment.
Have a lovely halloween everyone.

Morning Christine, Beautiful book today, I love the colours, I have the nested teacups dies and I love Donna's Alphas too, think they will be next on my list ha ha. I have The Cinch but haven't had it out of the box yet, will have to give your books a try.
Awwwwwwww, Kim's new puppy is absolutely gorgeous, I thought she was actually picking him up last weekend, but he's far to ickle to come home yet, he is absolutely scrummy.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Awww, such a sweet blog post all round Christine! The puppy is really cute and looks like he is going to enjoy his cuddles. I have a BIA but don't use it very much at all, perhaps I need to pull it out of the bag and have a play. Have a great day x

Morning Christine

Love the note book, you can never have enough note pads, I'm always making lists, especially as Christmas comes around. Thank you everyone for your comments on our little puppy. I'm trying to get organised for Christmas ahead of his arrival, as I know he's going to need lots of attention, not that I mind:-).

All the best

Morning Christine, Kim's puppy so cute and she's right not to name it until she gets to know it a bit. Lovely note book, im thinking i need the teacup dies now. Emma

Hello Christine, lovely project again today. I've been thinking about getting a binder to use for gift making but undecided between a BIA and The Cinch and also whether I'd use it enough to justify expense. Been looking out for ideas other than scrap booking which I don't do. Will look forward to seeing your posts in January.

Hi Christine,
Happy Halloween. Love the pumpkin.
The book and the advent calendar are superb.
Hope you get lots of trick or treat people, or you may be eating the spoils for some time.
Have a wonderfully spooky evening.
Lots of crafty spooktacular love. Jenny L.
