One Thousand Posts!
I do have another reason for this historic 1000th post. I want to show you what I received for Christmas from one of my many crafty friends. Val is a Paper Person. She does all kinds of interesting stuff with paper - origami, making miniature books, book binding, and anything else you can think of. I have a box labelled "Val's Creations" with all the gorgeous items she has given me since we became friends. I used to have them scattered around the house on display, but they started to get dusty, and I didn't want them to become damaged, so I have stored them in this box for safe keeping. But not forgotten!
I won't need to put this year's Xmas gift in the box though because it is already in a dust proof container! Well, not dustproof, but easily cleaned without risk of damage. It is an ordinary jam jar filled with extraordinary surprises. The label attached is jam jar sized.
And inside, a collection of the cutest miniature books and origami puzzles you could ever see - all hand made by Val!
