Early Bird Christmas Crafting

I have joined Judith with Early Bird Christmas Crafting. I am a bit late joining but better late than never. July is making presents for the home and I have a few things on the table part way through. Judith has lots of inspirational ideas on her blog to get our creativeness going, well worth a visit.
My journal and my basket, trimmed with Tilda Christmas ribbon, ready to record and hold the gifts that I am making for Christmas.

Here is the journal cover up close. It was wing pattern, meaning that I winged it! The fabric I used is an older one, ummmm Masion de Noel by 3 Sisters for Moda. Loved it, it was so pretty.... The red ribbon set it off nicely.

A close up of the Tilda ribbon, this was part of Chookyblue's SSCS present that I recieved from Gudron two Christmas's ago. I have been reluctant to use it, it is so pretty. However it is just wound around the basket handle so it can be used again easily!

PS Having trouble getting other pages to open today so the links I intend to put in may not be in my post yet.

That is a great idea making a journal of presents you make. I really should keep track. I have started taking pictures but many things I have made I have no record at all. Thanks for the inspiration!

What a terrific journal, such pretty fabric, really amazing for 'winging' it.

I'm glad you have decided to join in with your Christmas preparations too. Your journal and basket look fantastic. I wonder what goodies will be going in there?
