Washi Wednesday

I'm a bit too tired to type anything cohesive, so here are some pretty butterfly shapes Zoë cut out of some card covered with washi. Aren't they pretty?

Butterflies are attracted to buttons don't you know...

Washi Wednesday

Ha! You thought I'd forgotten, didn't you? It might be the eleventh hour, but it's still Wednesday. I've just returned home from Kayal, where we were out celebrating my Mum's Birthday. I shan't say which one it was, but it was a significant landmark. Kayal is amazing, if you haven't been, you should go. I had a scrummy fish thing that was baked in a palm leaf or something. And the breads... Oh,...

Washi Wednesday

Can you smell it in the air? It's that time of year again. The supermarkets dedicate entire aisles to it. I find myself being drawn to window displays full of it. Coins burn holes in my pockets until they have been spent on it. Mmmm...Stationery.

This week, we have covered natural pencils in Washi tape, so now they are pretty. All ready to be packed in to my pencil case, ready for school. Or my...

Washi Wednesday. It's all about the sticks.

It's Wednesday! The weeks are flying by aren't they? We're hurtling towards the C-Word at an epic pace.

This week's Washi Wednesday was proposed by Zoë, who saw it here (with a handy tutorial), and executed by me at Knit & Natter last night. I'll be honest, there is always natter, but the knitting doesn't necessarily materialise.

Washi pick-up-sticks.

We headed up the street to check out our friend...

Washi bunting! Hurrah. And Chocolate Beetroot cake made by my Mum. Might sound weird, but tastes delicious.

Apparently, Badminton racquets flake black stuff all over your hands. Or at least the inexpensive ones do. The racquet pictured below has been given a face lift by covering the flaking handle in Washi. Problem solved.

For the love of Washi, is it Wednesday already?

We have a new thing! We have boxes for storing your Washi in. Look how pretty they are, all lined up and ready to use. They also stack, and you can label them. One for every colour? Season? Project? Joy.

Washi Wednesday

This week I watched jumbo lolly sticks (or tongue depressors) soak in water for three days, so I could bend them around a shampoo bottle (slowly), tie them in place with some wool and spend a day watching them dry. I lost momentum at this point, so Amy wrapped this one in rainbow stripes of Washi tape and Zoë modeled the result. Team effort.

Washi Wednesday

This week's Washi Wednesday follows on from last week quite nicely. If you are a bit clumsy with a craft knife, why not let your wounds heal in style?

 Washi covered plasters!

Our new delivery of washi finally arrived last week. Our parcel was supposed to be here a couple of months ago, but our supplier unfortunately didn't note my new delivery address and posted it to the old one. Which is such a...

Washi Wednesday!

Ok. So here's the thing I was working on last week and failed to complete! I got some magnetic strip, covered it in Washi and trimmed the edges in to either torn-looking edges or sharp flag-style edges. They work a treat on my boring notice board!

 Baby, I'm your man.

Washi Wednesday

I spent this afternoon making something cool for Washi Wednesday, really I did. It involved a craft knife and a cutting mat. I mounted something on a wall, cleaned something, found some pretty things (and pretty boys) to go with it. I grabbed my camera, got it in focus and pressed the button. Only to find my memory card is still at the shop. I'm sorry Washi lovers, I just couldn't be bothered to...

You thought I'd forgotten, didn't you?


Amy has covered one of our light switches in washi! Oh, the joy. We've been joined in our washi-worship today by Kiara over at Bakery Cakery. It's catching.

We also got a mention over on the Crafty Magazine blog today - click here to read what they've said about the Etsy Craft Party we organised with Zoë at Sew Make Believe and Lara from Sewsmith. Thanks...
