Treat Yourself for Under £5 (including postage)

Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while will know there are a few topics I like to come back to regularly and this is one of them - cheap handmade goodies to treat yourself.  As I see it, when you buy a little handmade something you make yourself happy (because everyone loves buying stuff), you make the seller happy (because we really love it when we sell stuff) and you don't have to feel guilty because it only cost a couple of pounds.  It's a win-win-win situation!
