Remember this Post?

So, remember back to this post where I said I would make a little something special to the first 5 people who commented? Well, the projects are complete and all mailed out! 2 of my invisible friends have received their goods, so I thought I would post what I made for them. :)
As a side note, I have never altered anything in my life! What possessed me to do so for this little project is beyond me! I was just thinking that I wanted to do something more than a card.

This notebook was made for Heather. She is an amazing woman who not only has 7 children, but she is also a demo and Girl Scout Leader. (I am sure she does more, but I was exhausted after just typing that out!) At any rate, I thought she would like this notebook with Girl Scouts on the cover.



This notebook was made for Naomi. Naomi is not only in one of my blogger groups, but we chat on Facebook as well. She is an energetic person and talented crafter! I have also learned she has a fondness for coffee! Her notebook had to have a coffee theme. I know, this is difficult to admit, but I only have ONE coffee stamp, which is Christmas themed. I masked out the candy cane and hope I gave it more of an all season feel.



There are more projects to come, but I don't want to spoil the surprise for those that have not received their packages yet. :) Thanks for looking!

I was hoping you would post a pic of the adorable notebook you made me. It is super cute. I take it everywhere. I'm usually going "look at this cute notebook my friend made for me".

Nice job for someone that hasn't "altered" before. I love both books - especially the buttons on the coffee book - how they follow the circle.

Oh! Well, you know I LOVED mine! I can't make myself write in it, my DH made fun of me about that! It's just too pretty! The other one is great too! And my Pocky sticks are almost gone. Wonder if I can find more online??? My kids saw them yesterday, and I have had to share ever since...LOL.

Seven kids? Seven? And she doesn't borrow them, they're all hers? Wow. What a sweet gesture for you to make those notebooks. That one with the coffee cup and the little swirly and buttons, that rocks!
