Where I Stand {this week}

          Happy Sunday! It’s been a busy old week, though today is looking promising for some down time to sit & cross-stitch & sew. Fun stuf I’ve found wandering barefoot around the internet this week:  This guide to branding your social media is really handy! Please excuse me while I fall down a rabbit hole of photos & editing. An interesting read on

       Over on Instagram, I’ve been hosting a week-long photo a day challenge called #mybarefootweek – these photos represent the six days I’ve completed so far. It’s been fun, and I’ve loved seeing where everyone’s bare feet have taken them this week.  I’ve also been wandering around the internet and found some fun stuff: A fabulous article on urban homesteading featured on Finch

  {creativity requires the courage to let go of certainty – from my 100 days project on Instagram}  I am a weird mix of perfectionist & laid back. I will let minor errors slip through on a project, in the the spirit of “done is better than perfect”, but too many, or the wrong kind, and I will twitch until it’s fixed. New hobbies can

                     It’s been a good week this week. Beetle had a cold, and sick baby snuggles have taken over my crafting time for a good chunk of the week, but I still managed to get a bit of stuff done – most notably February’s project life, the cover of my blog planner (pages to come this week), and two

Project Life :: February

I sat in front of my computer a couple of weeks back, coffee in hand, baby in bed, steeling myself for the task of culling, editing & uploading February’s photos. Much to my surprise, I only ended up chosing 15 to tell the story of our month – a big change on January’s 100+. I think there are multiple factors that caused such a massive

  Another week done – I can’t believe we are coming up to the last full week of March! This week I’ve slowly been hitting my stride again after a flat weekend last week, and am having so much fun in the studio. So. Many. Ideas.  Other fun stuff I’ve found as my bare feet took me around the interwebs this week: These cute

 No links this week – I’m blogging from my phone with not one but two snuggly unwell boys. In perfect timing, it was cool enough to call Quilt Season open. I’ve made cards and fidget toys, I’ve worked on some bags & made a travel clutch. I have inspiration & mojo coming out my ears, but for today, I’m resting with my babes &

Snug as a bug in a tea cozy {commission}

I know, I know. It’s all I seem to blog at the minute. But this is the last commission I haven’t shared with you yet. This was super fun. A lovely friend in Canada shared a picture of her new mugs. But poor little mugs had heard about Canadian winters, it seems, and came prepared – they wore little cabled mug jumpers. Or sweaters, to

Project Life 2015

LWD-9510-001

2014 was a bit of a muddle in terms of Project Life & what I was doing. I switched from weekly print-at-home to in-theory weelky print-at-Harvey Norman which mergeed into fortnightly or even monthly “oh crap I’m so far behind”. I also started the year with the Honey edition & all it’s co-ordinating bits, & ended the year mixing in some Studio Calico kits.
