Owls, earrings and little ATC sized books...


Went for a great Sunday morning bike ride with my sons this morning and we saw a lovely handcarved owl in the woods.



I decided to make a little ATC notebook with all the papers I tend to hoard. The black decoration is made with my bikes old inner tube cut out with my cuttlebug...so always look for the arty potential in everything as sometimes you will be surprised!!


Made some nice little delicate earrings too..have added a pair in my Etsy shop..so quite a productive day.....
