  1. Who Gives A Crap Bamboo Toilet Paper

    A blog about using the bog...

    Hello my colour loving friends! Just to warn you, this post is a little different to my usual topics and definitely far less colourful. But that's OK, because sometimes things are just black and white.

    Our planet is heading for a climate catastrophe and collectively we need to do everything we can to be as environmentally conscious as possible. Making large scale changes to our lifestyle can feel overwhelming, but if everyone started off by committing to one small change, we’d be well on our way to crafting a brighter future!

    The first small change I'd like to introduce you to happens in the smallest room in the house...

    I wonder whether I can encourage you to switch to recycled toilet paper?

  2.  Find A Rainbow Favourite Finds

    A FEW OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS…

    I haven’t done a favourite finds round-up for ages, so I thought I’d create a post that collects together all of the colourful things that have caught my eye over the last few months. And as 3rd April is National Find a Rainbow Day, instead of restricting myself to one theme or topic I thought it would be fun to give myself free rein to share anything and everything - so long as it was colourful!

    Because we all know that #lifeisbetterincolour

    So here’s some of the beautiful and brilliant things that have been brightening up my world. 

  3. How to build a Stag Beetle

    Back at the beginning of 2019 I wrote a blog post that set out my '19 for 2019' - a superlist covering nineteen intentions that I wanted to mindfully work towards over the course of the year. Pretty close to the top of the list was my hope to spend more time crafting for fun.

    I'm pleased to report that I'm making steady progress - I've made some rainbow beads from this set of FIMO* , I'm (still) very slowly stitching my Stichsperation custom quote cross stitch kit, and I'm drawing along with the Critical Role Pub Draw series - but today I thought I'd share a craft project I have actually managed to complete!

    Today I am proud to present my magnificent Assembli 3D Paper Stag Beetle Sculpture
