Last Friday I went to spend the day with my aunt as we share the same birthday – although she is a couple of years older than me 😉

I know she loves my cards so I always try to give her a gift that includes some of my cards and then it came to me to make her a Book of Days.

This is a great gift idea to give family to keep track of all those important occasions and as its a perpetual calendar/diary then they dont need a new one every year – just new cards!

It may take a few seconds for the slideshow start.

I’ve made this one using the gorgeous Tea Party Designer Series Papers and I think you’ll agree it makes a lovely gift. My aunt also thought so and while there she passed the Book of Days around to show her guests and they all now want to make one so not only did I make the right gift for my aunt but I also booked a couple of classes while I was there!

If you would like to book in for a class to make your very own Book of Days or maybe you’d like to learn how to make one so you can make some more for gifts for Christmas as it is less than 14 weeks away so it would be good for you to start on your gifts now.  Email or ring me today to set the date for your Book of Days class.

We had a great day and I came home to a mailbox full of birthday cards and I’ll share them tomorrow with you.

I do have to share something with you though.

Usually I do my own gift shopping for the different occasions and my birthday was no different. Hubby had said to ‘arrange’ my gift as usual which I did – he buys so well for me!!


Well he did surprise me when he came home from work with these roses – arent they beautiful? and yes I still have them and they still look gorgeous!!


  1. Book looks great Leonie and I hope you had a great birthday! I also love the look of those beautiful flowers! See you tomorrow.

  2. Sincere (belated) b’day wishes Leonie. I love the book…it is a wonderful gift idea. I also LURVE the idea of arranging ur own b’day gifts!! Too Funny…looks like it’s more prevalent that I thought!!!
