Handmade Monday 87

Hello and welcome to another Handmade Monday.

This week I've finished off a few things for magazines...

there's a painted papier mache/fabric handbag moneybox winging its way to Craftseller



as well as a set of boxes made using some free craft-themed papers they'll be giving away free with the magazine (I love the cotton reel paper, don't you?):



and I finished off a mail organiser for Sewing World - this envelope pocket is just a tiny part of it:



You know, writing this blog post has made me realise why this week has felt so busy! 

In case you missed it, you can find out here about my book giveaway as part of the Make and Craft Blog Tour.  I'm really, really pleased with this book - there's some really excellent advice and information within its pages for anyone who sells crafts.

OK, it's time for Handmade Monday!

I wonder if you have more hours in your day than the rest of us??!
I love the moneybox bag and the boxes are adorable, love the buttons.

Wendy said...

Tickled Pink: no, I wish I did!! I have a daughter who doesn't need much sleep (she's grown up now) and I wish I was like her in that respect!
