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 Wednesday

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

Washi Wednesday

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...

Washi Wednesday

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...

Washi Wednesday

This week's Washi Wednesday is from Zoë. We have already had washi-covered pegs, but this time we've gone miniature! The pegs Zoë used have a teeny magnetic strip on the back, so can attach mini notes or labels to appropriate metal surfaces, like say fridges or cake tins. Mmmm....cake....

Well I don't know what she's on about, all these pegs look massive to me Beryl.

Washi Wednesday

Greetings Washi lovers! I've borrowed a picture from a fabulous Belgian blogger this week (well, I assume it's fabulous, I can't understand a word of it, but the pictures are amazing!):

How cool does that look? 6 million mega-fonzies, maybe even 7.

Julie also has an inspiring Etsy shop - I especially like her hand printed zip up pouches and cloud...

Washi Wednesday

One for stationery lovers! I saw these over at 'How About Orange' - a necklace made from paperclips and washi tape. So this afternoon I set about making my own, which Zoë kindly modeled for me:


Maybe we can make some of these at our craft party on 20th June? Have you booked your ticket yet?
