WOYWW - 77 a mini surprise giveaway

Good morning lovely people.  Have you had a good week? Ours has been a mixed bag, it is all going well with Timothy in his cot converted to bed form, we put him there and he stays although yesterday he 'need truck' this thing is nearly half as big as him, so I snuck it back out once he was a sleep.  On the downside someone threw a full bottle of Groschl through our kitchen window smashing it, (we are a ffirst floor flat so unlikely to be random) we were out, with friends babysitting, so that was a crap end to the evening. Anyway enough rambling thank you for all your lovely comments last week, the papers are this years and last years Imaginesce, polar expressions (2009) and Christmas Cottage (2010). So here's the thing - Julia, I do have a finished book to show you but after some thought I decided to go a stage further.  I will show you shortly the finished minibook - then later this week I will post the tutorial I have written to make your own.interlocking accordion mini. It will be my first tutorial and if you leave me a comment then I'll enter your name into a draw to win the very mini you see below (winner announced in 2 Wednesdays on Dec 8th in WOYWW 79). What's WOYWW where have you been all this time, there is a link on the right head on over and start the journey of a lifetime..........
Enough procrastinating without further ado...............




I used the same idea to produce a holder for some pockets to make a year planner for one of my lucky relatives :)

So if you want the christmas book check back tomorrow night onwards and leave a comment for a chance to have it all to yourself.  Happy Wedneday

They are gorgeous books - love the pocket one, that would be fab for a gardener with little seed packets in. Or recipe cards for the cook in your life. Ooh yes, hurry up with that tutorial ;)

Sorry to read about the Grolsch through the window - some people are just complete... well, you can finish that sentence off. We have the same with lorries reversing into our house to reach the titchy steel fabricators behind us, they have to go down a tiny cobbled alleyway at the side of us. 9 years we have lived here - not one apology just a rather unnatractive crack in our living room wall and a gobful of abuse the one time I went out to get the drivers details to pass onto our landlord. *mutter, mutter*

What a great project... I look forward to the tutorial! Sorry to hear about the window. It's such a shock but a terrible problem clearing glass well enough when there are children around.

That's a fantastic year planner - can I be a long-lost relative of yours?

Looking forward to the tutorial; I'd really like to have a go at one of those.

Glad no one was hurt when your window was broken; that must have been such a shock.

At such a busy time - that's a very generous give away Wonmble! Am horrified about your window - what a shock. What a bunch of .......ers.

Mrs A. said...

Hello,

The project looks terrific. Hope you don't have any more window incidents.
Hope the rest of your week is good.

Doone said...

yep but I do believe in Karma - one day throwing that bottle will cause him (her?) harm, not that that helps you when you are distressed by the violence

Fab books! Some people are just too much, glad that no one got hurt, but it's distressing enough in itself.
