CraftBlogClub Secret Santa

Crafty Secret Santas are always a bit nerve wracking because you worry that what you do won't be liked by the person you're making for. Also, it is always at such a busy time of the year there is the added pressure of fitting it in alongside the other makes you need to do. Regardless of that, I do enjoy them and hadn't done one for a while so I signed up for the CraftBlogClub one.


When my swap partner came through it was none other than Fiona of Fizzy Jane Makes herself!!!!! Oh no, panic! I wanted to find something to do that would both match her and reflect me so I did some snooping on social media to find out a bit about Fiona. I found a person who likes words so I opted for a covered notebook - the colour scheme would be the 'me' element.




I wanted to use some Fimo 'drops' I'd made.  I loved the flame colours and thought they'd make a nice detail on the notebook so I connected them to some vintage neclace pieces and a bookmark ribbon. 




The cover itself is reversable so hopefully one of the colour schemes will suit (fingers crossed). Here is the result.

  




When my gift arrived I was so excited, but was good and put it under the tree to open on Christmas Day. I received a beautiful heart hanging.  It is very delicately painted and lovely. The words are so inspiring and I keep repeating them to myself in moments of doubt, so thank you Fiona for the gift.  I have it hung in my office/craftroom window so the light shines through the words.
