but for the purpose of this post ... the made is in handmade ... i do love to give handmade gifts for Christmas and all other gift giving celebrations
This is one of my favourite gifts that I made this year, for a dear friend who knits ... oh, and she is a bit of a witch ... the best kind of witch!
So this is the cover ... this is a little photo journal for my friend to record her knitted projects in ... I thought it would be cool for her to take pictures of her family and friends wearing the gifts she had knit for them.
Cast a spell ... this page contains a wand ... The tiny wand pocket has a tarot card image ....the create page is actually an envelope
A little close up of the wand ... I just could not get a good picture of it, but it was painted with a clear glimmer glam and it is shiny and sparkly without being glittery ... hand stamping the wand was fun!
One envelope contains enchantments (small knitting needles, a gift certificate and other goodies) and the envelope with charms does contain actual charms and necessities ...
I loved this toadstool digital image from Land of Enchantment (a very cool etsy shop for all of your digital needs) ... it serves as a title page to the journal.
Cast on ... just really means begin writing ... the pages are all 7Gypsies journal pages but i have added images to most of the pages ...
Cast off ... basically the end of the journal
A larger photo of the wand ... the end is tipped with many many layers of copper embossing powder and the tip is coated with iridescent embossing powder which changed the colour of the ink to a reddish looking glow ...
oh, and she made me a beautiful purple scarf knit with cotton/silk yarn (cuz my skin is kinda fussy) and she sewed cool little buttons on the corners ... yeah, she knows what i like!
I am joining Jenny Matlock and her alphabe-Thursday meme .... check it out, there's lots of good reading all about the letter M!
