Itchy Fingers

I set aside time today to sort out mail and clear a pile of papers that have been languishing on our dining table ever since the busy period at work kicked in.

After clearing out the necessary, I sat there and started folding up scrap A4 sized papers that were printed on one side, pulled out an old magazine, and made myself a notebook:

It is a very simple one, and I could have added more papers (I didn't have any more on hand), so I saved nicer magazine papers for future less-makeshift projects. Still, it was fun, and I'm pretty pleased with the results! This one will probably be placed at our home telephone niche for scribbling notes with.

How do you think people will feel about receiving handmade, upcycled Christmas gifts?

i'd love to receive handmade gifts. there're nothing in the shops that i want to be gifted from the friends. gifts from the heart are the best. this one is practical too!

Handmade gifts require more time and effort...why won't anyone appreciate them?

imp: Me too! Because they're either personalised or really unique. You won't be able to find the same. Also the thought that went into it makes it special.

lms: Someone told me "el cheapo"! Heh. It was a joke, but then it made me wonder if some people might really think that!! =P
