Calling Creative BookCrossers

I've managed to get hold of a space for a BookCrossing Xmas Tree at my local Community Christmas Tree Festival. Loads of local businesses and organisations will be decorating trees to advertise what they do. Since BookCrossing is such a part of my life, I felt it was important it had a place in the community as well.
The festival is raising funds for the Oxford Night Shelter, so its all in a good cause.

I need your help though. To do this I need to have enough decorations related to BookCrossing or Christmas to fill a tree. I'm going to make some myself, but I wondered whether anyone would be willing to send me something to add, so that it really can be full without me collapsing from exhausted.

We will be setting up on Friday 9th December, so there's not long to go.
If you're able to help in any way please leave contact details in the comments (also the place to ask any questions you may have).
Thanks very much.

Craft Stall Number 2

So, my last craft stall went down pretty well with at least 2/3 of people buying something from me (apologies for the lack of pictures, some were taken but they haven't made their way to my computer yet), so I've booked up to do another table later this month. The pressure is on this time as I've had to put down some money for my table, so I'm hoping it goes even better than last time.

For sale will be homemade soaps and bubble bath in various scents and homemade magnetic bookmarks, as well as hand-crafted and photo cards, and a small selection of magnets. I shall also bring along a list of everything I can make and am willing to take orders.

The stall will be part of the Rush Common Pre-School Christmas Fete at All Saints Methodist Church (Abingdon, England) on the 26th November.
Doors open at 10am and will be open for two hours until 12pm.

It would be great to see you there. If you make it do let me know that you're a reader of my blog.
