Creative Christmas Planner

Hello There!
I hope you have had a good week. Mine has been busy, busy, busy. I've been working away getting something special organised for you.... but before I reveal all, let me explain a wee thing....
The main reason I started blogging & also the reason this blog is called "Listen to the birds sing" is because I have been so inspired by the creativity of you all out there & I guess this is my way of, in some small way, giving back. Although I have only been blogging for a couple of months now, I really want to help encourage & inspire you all in your creative efforts. With Christmas starting to approach & all the wonderful creativity out there I thought this would be a perfect time to do this......

So, without further ado, let me introduce you to: Creative Christmas For the next couple of months I will be posting tutorials for printables, sewing & cooking projects for the festive season. Now I know that there are lots of tutorials out there... but the focus of these will be different... I want to show you how to be wonderfully creative with MAXIMUM LOVE, but MINIMAL COST.... What do you think? I'd love for you to be part of Creative Christmas so if you have a tutorial or project that you think would be good to share, I'd love for you to email me & I'll be happy to post it. I've also created a button over there on the right hand side for you to grab if you would like to share the festive spirit....
To get the ball rolling, here is the first Creative Christmas project: A Scrappy Christmas Planner... all you need is scraps of fabric, wadding, card & ribbons
To view or download & print the tutorial, just click here on: Scrappy Christmas Planner Tutorial
I hope you enjoy it!
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to email me
Do call back in a day or two to see some fantastic printables you can download to put into your planner
Hope you all have a lovely weekend & get a chance to listen to the birds sing!
Take Care

  13. I am curious to find out what blog system you are working with?
    I'm having some minor security problems with my latest site and I'd like to
    find something more safeguarded. Do you have any recommendations?

  14. J'utilise personnellement (a temps perdu!) ces liens sympas: -/
    Je pense que les films que vous pouvez telecharger gratuitement sur ces websites, le sont legalement; la preuve en est que,
    lorsque vous voulez telecharger un film qui
    entre dans la categorie des "telechargements non legaux", un message l''affiche,
    et il vous est impossible de telecharger ce movie!!!
