Buy my fabrics! (please)

Just FYI, I am starting to sell some of my designs over on Spoonflower. I was going to keep them to myself but I felt I could use a little bit of commission money, so it may take a while but I plan to grow my selection. There are more in the pipeline I just […]

Button giveaway

I have this box of buttons. What I call boring buttons- browns and black and whites and standard looking things, but useful nevertheless. The box is 4 inches square and 2.5 inches deep and it’s pretty much full.   Do you want it? If so you have a week (so until midday GMT on Friday 23rd March […]

A sneaky peek of my new room and a couple more for the Pinterest Challenge

I’ve decided that recipes I’d pinned on Pinterest count towards the challenge, but I felt that if I did two of them, that would make it count more! So yesterday I made cheese and spring onion beer bread- dead simple, no kneading, no rising, no fuss! Here’s the recipe. I also made salted caramels, taking […]

Last minute 2011 makes

So whilst the carpet fitters were in putting down the new carpet you can see in these photos(!) I was crammed in the conservatory with the crying dog […]

We’re very excited about this, because not only should it drive more traffic our way, but also it should help us raise revenues for hosting, advertising and even […]

Crafteroo Magazine

This week I’ve been relearning the Adobe Suite and have been working on the soon-to-be-launched Crafteroo magazine, available digitally through Etsy and Folksy shops of forum members plus the Crafteroo forum itself from 1st October. Just in case you might be interested in advertising, the rates are cheap for the first issue (which will cost […]
