I saw this wonderful piñata cake on domestic sluttery a little while back. As the husband is a sweet fanatic, I just had to try and make it! I went for half the quantities they did, as, actually, there weren’t going to be that many cake eaters – this was mainly to see my husbands […]

The Craft Fantastic have not one but two stalls at this! One selling delicious cakes, chocolates and cookies and the other selling a whole heap of paper goodies. It’s all for a good cause so if you’re around Northampton August 31st then please stop by and see us. Spread the word people 🙂
On a day trip to Amalfi from Positano, we walked out of the town and up the hill to the paper mill museum. If you’re interested in paper, paper making, books etc. then it’s well worth it. I was in my element! Paper making equipment and presses dating back hundreds of years. I even got […]
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 […]
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.
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: […]
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.
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.
Finished my prototype holiday checklist/notebook! It has titles for destination and date, plus sections with space to write what you want- divided into essentials, toiletries, accessories, clothes and miscellaneous. Then there are a few blank pages for general holiday notes: This one I’ve done for myself, as a tester, but I will do proper ones […]
Join us this July 14th for a day of fun in (hopefully sunny) Flore! The Craft Fantastic will be there with a fabulous range of notebooks, sketchbooks, journals, gift tags and origami mobiles. Go check out the website to see what’s going on.
