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,...

Book club update

Sorry! I posted on Facebook the winner of the battle of the books, but I completely forgot to update the blog.
The winner was Blind Faith by Ben Elton.

I read City of Bones anyway, because I'm becoming a young adult fiction fan, and can highly recommend it. It's actually been released as a film recently, Zoë and I popped to see it on Friday. It wasn't half bad, but read the book first if you can.

We'...

Why can't every weekend be a bank holiday?

I've had a fun few days!

On Wednesday night, Fiona taught a fabulous workshop on Styling your Crafts. Zoë attended along with 5 other lovely crafty & creative people, wanting to learn more about photographing their products to sell online. Everyone had such lovely goodies to photograph! Liz, our friendly neighbourhood vintage ice cream van driver, also came along to learn a bit about photographing...

Friday Finds

I've been at Denise's Hens' do this evening. We had great fun, I got to turn Charlotte in to a swan with toilet paper.

This week's Friday find is from Zoë - she found these gorgeous Rosti Danish egg cups, which are now for sale in the shop:


They're really tactile and stack beautifully.

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.

ManE is home!

Much to Gladys and Beryl's delight, ManE has returned from his long stay in the U S of A. We've been  enjoying pictures of  ManE's adventures over on his Knitted Man blog. Judging by the delicious looking food he helped Zoë and Paul eat, we're surprised he can still fit in his knitted jumper!

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...

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...

July's Book Club choices

No, we're not kidding. 

I have a message about Book Club from Zoë:
The first rule of Book Club: You do not talk about Book Club.

Not really, I made that up. Here it is:

Our next book club choice is up to you! We have narrowed it down to two contrasting options: Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy or The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Please leave us a comment on this blog post or on our Fac...

Wow. Just wow.

Thank you all, so, so much! All 75+ people (we lost count), that came to our Etsy craft party and made it fabulous.

We ate, drank and crafted. We carved rubber stamps, made cardboard owls, sewed felt brooches, made macrame bracelets, drilled and glued key rings, made washi tape jewellery, knitted, nattered and generally had a ball!



Thank you Amy, for working your socks off for two days straight, to...

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?
