As a child I ALWAYS wanted personalised items, but back then you could pretty much only buy premade items. They never had unusual names so my sisters and I always missed out. Not that I wished for a second that I had an ordinary name! I think I'm making up for it now with lots of personalised stuff for Tassy! I wanted to show you these great necklaces I ordered from etsy. They are handmade and they look it. And I love that. :) I just love them.

I've created a few layouts this week for upcoming classes at workshops@home, but unfortunately no scrapping I can share at the moment. I do have a lamp however! I bought the lamp base and a striped shade from Kmart for a bargain, ripped off the striped cover and replaced it with this gorgeous paper. Tassy LOVES it and so do I!

Yvette I was always looking for personalised things as a child too... I could never find anything with my name on it!! Funny you should share your necklaces today as I was just looking at these in a jewellery shop the other day thinking how lovely it would be to get Madi and I one too! :) I love them.

Your lamp look fantastic!!!! You're so clever...I love the paper you've used! It looks lovely in Tassy's room!

Thanks so much for posting about the necklace Yvette. My daughter Marnie has been wanting one of these for ages but I didn't really know where to get one from that had to specially make the name. I ordered and it was delivered within 2 weeks and she is rapt with it :-0
