Paper adventures on the Amalfi coast

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 […]

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: […]

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.

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 […]
