Craft Storage – DIY Of Course ;)

April 6, 2014

I’m holding a new craft class this month.

Something I have a distinct passion for . . . . cool storage ideas.
Best yet – it’s DIY, so you can alter and adjust them to suit your own needs.

I LOVE having the ability and opportunity
to modify something to make it perfect for my place.

So cool!

I’ll post some pictures of my own choice as soon as I have finished :)

Other Blogger: Graphic’s Fairy

March 25, 2014

For a number of years – at least three – I have been a fan of the Graphics Fairy blog.

A massive fan!

Karen (aka The Graphics Fairy) is INCREDIBLY generous with her
digital work and image editing.

I’ve used one of her images here.

Do you think I put it to good use?

Today I just had to share one of her latest blog posts:
10 DIY Pillow Ideas“.
So absolutely cool!

Do you love these designs as much as I do?

Aren’t they amazing?

How would you use one of Karen’s designs
to create a designer cushion?

I’d love to see a photo if you give it a try :)

Black Stamp Pads – the Absolute BEST Review

January 26, 2014

.

Stacey Dunning from Block Head Stampers,
wrote this amazingly helpful post
comparing various specialist** stamp pads.

Originally,
I came across it on the Jellybeans FB page

I then created a printable Table
so as to keep handy when I ordered any stamp pads
OR
when I did a particular project
that required a special ink.

I’ve already found it so helpful.

Onya,
Stacey

Font Fetish – I Love the Look of Letters

January 6, 2014

I have always loved Fonts.

Being a calligrapher from a young age (11+)
how could I not be in love
with the lines, and swirls and connections of different fonts.

It’s so cool.

So imagine my delight
upon stumbling across
a Periodic Table of Fonts.

Oh Em Gee

Colouring In For the Holidays

December 30, 2013

A few parents here and there,
find school holidays a real survival challenge.

Especially the six week long, Christmas/Summer holidays
we have down here in Oz.

But I remember my Mum loved having us home for the holidays.

We were on the opposite end of ‘wealthy’ on the economic scale,
however we always had SO much fun.

I have such fond memories of
* playing with paper dolls (hours and hours)
* playing schools, shops and Mums & Dads
* mucking around outside
* and colouring in.

Man,
I really loved colouring in.
Still do – big time!

Recently,
I decided that I wanted to make a poster for my 2014 ‘Word’,
which is actually two words . . .
“Dream BIG”.

After quite a few drafts,
I finally made a copy that I would be happy to colour in.

And here it is
for you to print off
and perhaps colour in yourself,
or share it with some ‘short people’ that you know would enjoy it.

And if you do,
please, PLEASE
send me a photo,
via the comments section,
of your completed awesomeness.

Christmas Holiday Classes – Are Back!

December 25, 2013

I have had a LOT of requests
to run classes these School Holidays.

After a year away from this particular spotlight,
I was unsure if I could still do it.

And then I realised
– I missed it.

Badly!

So here is the timetable
& photos
to help you visualise what each class is about.

Christmas Holidays 2014 – Craft Class Timetable

NB
The timetable is mainly for CHILDREN,
however,
I am eager to cater for adults at any other given timeslot
including the weekends or evenings
when a tipple or two would be socially acceptable!!!!

Stamped Polymer Clay – I Couldn’t Stop!

July 29, 2013

As I already had the clay laying around
’cause I needed an excuse
I decided to make a just few more
stamped polymer clay images.

.

.

I even used some un-stamped ‘scraps’ to finish of a drop pendant design.

Put a link in the comments
so that we can all see your imagination at work.
