stocking fillers

After a couple of weeks travelling, I must say it's been nice to just sit down and make something. Yesterday, I started making some stocking fillers for friends and family using a stamp I carved for the handprinted fabric swap. Some little recycled notebooks got stamped in christmassy red and white ink ...


I always have a notebook like this in my bag and next to my bed for writing things down or drawing, so I love giving them to others to encourage them to do the same. You just never know when you might need to record that amazing idea!
