No sew.

The other day I was visiting an Art exhibition, that also had numerous craft stalls as well.
However being a bit frugal,  I came out empty handed as most things were quite over priced.
A lot of the items were sewing based on a grand scale.
Today I had a bit of 'me' time and delved into my material scraps box.

 I was not thinking big, more notelets.
Nor did I think get the sewing machine out, just the trusty tube of glue.
So this is my first 3 ,  my idea is to make boxes to hold an assortment of notelets  to give as gifts.

I would like to say 'Hello' to my new followers and thank you for for following me on my crafty journey.
Thank you for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.
