Natty Notebooks

I've been holed up in my craft room lately and yesterday I was busy transforming some Poundland notebooks for the forthcoming village craft fair.

Bought like this, 10 for £1........

 

they now look like this and I'm linking them to Lakota's Ta Dah Tuesday.



I also made a chocolate fudge cake as I've had visitors today and I'm pleased to say it went down very well.



I've got a quiet evening ahead with more crafting and 'Strictly'.
 Hope you're having a good weekend. x

Notebooks are wonderful Fiona.
A great buy too and now they are all "Done up" you can pop a good asking price on them.
I forgot to let you have a list of the stuff I sell, but I have been so busy it went out of my mind.
I make Reindeer food (which is only weetabix crushed and glitter added, all put in a cello bag with a label on ) they always go down well.
Hope you have a good time and sell well.

Your notebooks look fab in their new covers Fiona. So pretty and beautifully embellished.
The cake looks really yummy too (my hubby's fave!)
Have a great weekend too.

Those notebooks look fantastic - I particularly like the polka-dot ones in the top row. And that chocolate fudge cake - yum, I could just eat a piece of that right now!!

What a great makeover on those Poundland notebooks, they look really pretty and classy.
And your chocolate fudge cake looks far superior to my effort (I had to bake an extra layer to rescue it as the first two were a bit flat and overcooked...)
We went out for tea tonight so will be catching up on Strictly later! xxxx

Wow the notebooks and the cake look lovely. I'm disappointed though that there are no no new postings of charity shop buys - lol. I look forward to seeing what you have purchased for a few pence/pounds.

Have a lovely weekend.

So pretty, you never guess they had such a utilitarian start in life!

Those notebooks are totally inspired, what a classy end to a humble Poundland piece! x

Your notebooks look so pretty all together like that Fiona! I'm sure they'll go down a storm. That's a very tasty-looking chocolate fudge cake too. Have a lovely evening! Vicky x
