Yes, I am aware of how far away Christmas is. But if there are potential craft fairs to be done at the end of November, these things need thinking about now. I’ve made a few origami crane mobiles now and have got the hang of them. Whilst thinking of things to make for the Christmas […]

Weekly Inspiration- Matisse cut outs

At the end of the week it’s my husband’s uncle’s 80th birthday (is there such thing as an uncle in-law??) and so I have been commissioned to make a special card. It’s been decided that a ‘cut-out’ style card is what’s to be made and I was reminded of my book on Matisse ’gouaches découpés’ – […]
