Post It Note Ideas

Was looking at things to do with post it notes and I remeber seeing these somewhere a while back so I`m not taking the credit.
The little pads I`ve covered in card, imbellished and made a pen holder
I must remember to use different card next time as this card is showing signs of wear and tear already.
Mary over on MSE has made some with beer mats and bulldog clips so I`m going to try that next.

Knitted Scarf

I made this in no time at all, its so easy to make its a scarf in a ball, and using number 8 needles, cast on 5 stitches and knit a row, purl a row. It was so easy and I`m just a learner, I`ll soon be making more for christmas and even one for myself I think. Its so soft and the colours are beautiful

Heres a card for a man whos 50 and is into cricket. Using flippin decoupage, find mens cards very difficult to make at the best of times, but it turned out ok

Swarm of Bees

Last weekend I seen something I`ve never seen before, a swarm of bees developed out side our home, my partner walked out into it and abruptly came in and shut all the windows. I dont know if you can see it from this picure but it was frightening at the time.
You can just make out the dots below the tree, there was 100`s of them
