It was the cover that caught my eye… #15

I was lost in Forbidden Planet, searching for a new comic book. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted, but boy did I know it when I saw it! Pink, skulls, eye patch, roller skates and guns? Yes please! I haven’t actually read Carpe Diem, which is what this cover’s taken from (there are three […]

Wearable mini journal

This is my favourite mini so far! A book necklace and a wearable journal. I love the elastic holding it together. I will definitely be making more but this one is MINE.

Flore Family Fun Day

Some pictures from our last craft stall. This was a great event, well organised and tons of fun! Best sellers for us were the origami crane mobiles which went down a treat- I think because we had the gazebo to hang them from so people could actually see them properly! Ever the attentive stall holders: […]

It was the cover that caught my eye… #14

Picked up a great little paperback copy of ‘War Of The Worlds’ at lunch! I love the illustration on the cover – and the font! Everything, in fact. This particular edition is from 1967. I found the image here, a fabulous page dedicated to War Of The Worlds covers dating back from 1898.

Mini notebook – for necklace/key ring etc.

Made some new mini notebooks this weekend. The insides are sketchbook paper, while the covers are upcycled from a pair of old boots. They’re tied with a thin ribbon and have a metal loop attached so they can be fastened to a necklace or key ring etc.

It has titles for destination and date, plus sections with space to write what you want- divided into essentials, toiletries, accessories, clothes and miscellaneous.

Lunchtime Lusting- travel stationery sets

It’s a mere two weeks before I will be jetting off on a family holiday to Positano, Italy, for some much needed rest and relaxation. Of course I will be taking a notebook and pen/pencil with me, but sometimes it just doesn’t cut it to simply have a couple of items loose in the bottom […]

Button Book – first attempt

A while back I did a post on ‘things with buttons’ and featured this teeny little button book: So cute! And such a great idea. I’ve been wanting to make my own for quite some time now and I finally got round to it. The idea I had for it is taken from something I’ve […]
