I can now blog about a Christmas gift I made. This little pin inspired me to make a tea pot holder. I love how these rectangular folded ironed pieces create a Somerset Star. I had bought this gorgeous linen material during a holiday in Taiwan. It has little lemons and oranges. So I chose a […]
Just a quick short post to my blog family, thank you for your company this year. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas. May it be joyful and peaceful and safe. Enjoy! Loving putting this T-shirt this festive season on my little man…..
I won a Christmas stocking kit a few years back. A felt kit with super clear instructions and pre-punched holes, so super duper easy. Always wanting a challenge and trying new [and usually difficult] crafts it took me a while to get into it. Plus my little man was too young to ‘get’ Christmas but […]
I’d made a handful of gingerbread houses a few years back but remembered it as hard stressful work. Nice results but rolling the dough was tiring and stressful because you weren’t sure if your construction efforts were going to ‘hold’.

My best friend and her gorgeous daughter [who happens to be our Goddaughter] celebrate birthdays within 2 weeks of each other. So to complete their gifts I made these cards. I used fundamentals accents. The accents are self adhesive foiled and layered chipboard accents. They are simple in design but look stylish don’t you think?
Sunday just gone my mum and I took part in the ‘grano markets’. We took our owls, my cards, photo albums and softies/felties and set up our stall. I made bunting and signage from vintage book pages. We displayed our wares in wine boxes filled with corks and my dad who has been taking fruit […]
Well I was pleasantly surprised to open my mail yesterday to find I had received 2 certificates and a monetary prize. A few weeks ago I collected my submissions for the Fisher Ghost Craft Exhibition but the organiser did not say anything to me so I assumed that I had not won. What do they […]
