Zoë and the art of Zentangles

We're big fans of Zentangles around here. From what we understand, it's sort of like doodling, only you don't do it when you're on the phone. You set aside a bit of quiet time, clear your mind and concentrate on building layers of pattern. You don't have to be able to draw, so what are you waiting for? Get those tangles down on paper!

I had a day off today

It's been sweeping through my circle of friends like an easily transmitted disease. Roisin was heavily afflicted when I first met her and symptoms were apparent and obvious. Zoëwas a carrier, but recently the symptoms have started to become more pronounced. Then it took Amy. She seemed to be weathering it well, until last Christmas, when she gave up fighting it altogether (I feel a bit bad about...

Washi Wednesday - Introducing Minty

After 8 years of love and devotion, my cream soft top Beetle and I have parted ways. Moving on is always hard, I loved that car and it really felt like a limb. But sadly, now that I'm only part time at my grown-up job and I've chosen a more nourishing use of the rest of my time, a new Beetle wasn't really an option.

But that's OK. That decision led me to Minty:

The colour was in no way chosen to...

 Here is a picture of some samples from one of our mini workshops for you:

Zoë's cute wool felt envelope gadget cases!
 
Only a few days to go! #craftpartyleam has basically taken over the shop and studio, parcels are arriving every morning and we're all taking homework projects away at the end of each day. 

We work better under pressure. With our Friday deadline approaching fast, there is no time...

The weekend is a blur.

We had so much fun this weekend! We had a lovely group of Hens in the studio, they were creating Embroidery Hoop Art under Zoë & Amy's expert tutelage. Check out our ever-growing pinterest board  for ideas if you fancy having a go at home, or come along to our next workshop if you would like some inspiration or guidance - as well as unfettered access to our stash of trims and scraps!


How are you...

We like shelves. (Also some Friday Finds)

Little sets of shelves are ace. You can fill them with your favourite bits and pieces. Mine have Gregory Peck on them, a marble, a doll from Retrouve, a caravan, a highland cow, an alabaster bird, a plate with a donkey on it, a wooden bird Amy bought me for my Birthday, a pretty felt doll that Zoë made for me, a Christmas present from Paul (those nesting owls are amazing, aren't they?), an old...

Friday Finds

Zoë & I love kitsch ceramic animals with big doe eyes. We have an excellent selection in the shop at the moment. Amy is enduring them rather well.

Washi Wednesday

For those of you who might have forgotten, it's Valentines day on Friday. Which means that Hallmark, Chaucer and retailers like us insist that you are duty bound to, at the very least, send your significant other a card.

If you have a bit of red Washi tape lying around, perhaps you could make a minimalist statement with a card not dissimilar to this one:


I have been advised by our Director of...

Washi Wednesday

Zoë made magnetic Washi book marks! I haven't photographed them very well, as my camera battery went flat before I was finished.


Here is the tutorial Zoë followed.
