It was a blog post on the awesome Rock ‘n’ Roll Bride (yes, I still look at it, even though I am married) that brought the marvels of Anissa Lee to my attention.

Kirstie’s back, hurrah! I have missed having a weekly craft show to watch, I really have. I loved Kirsty’s Homemade Home. Ooh, and, Kirsty’s Homemade Christmas.

After having a clear out recently and discovering rather a large stash (who knows why) of paper shopping bags, I decided that rather than put them into the recycling bin, I would fashion them into […]
