As you can see it is quite a decent size, I put it beside my cuppa so you can get a good idea but you could make different sizes and its a good way to use up odd bit of paper. I got the instructions from another blog here but it was basically cut three strips of paper 27cm, three at 24cm then one at 5cm. You just twist them into a figure eight shape and glue, then layer them up, just loop the last one. I stitched through the middle of the pile of mine to make it secure. it was very quick and you could do them multicoloured or out of fabric. Thank you Thrifty Magpie for that idea.
I've started my resolutions already as I never see the need to wait for new year to make positive changes, had a good walk with my dogs and started this weeks book it's one I had on my wish list and bought for myself ( it couldn't be ordered from the library or I would have). It's called Unstoppable by Nick Vujicic, such an amazing person, I am half way through it already (oh lovely holidays!).
If you want to find out more about Nick you can do so here, there are also videos of him surfing (yes surfing! that cover photo is real.) with Bethany Hamilton who lost her arm to a shark in 2003 another inspirational person. If you haven't seen the film Soul Surfer I suggest you watch it, but you will probably cry ( I did).
There are some amazing people out there doing incredible things, try and remember that when the evening news shows you all negative stuff that's happening.
