I'm finally back at my pc after days and days away so I've been able to see all the lovely craft streams in my rss feeder, here are a few of my favourite finds - please try one out and let me know how you get on...
1. National Handwriting Day Ok it was last week - 23rd Jan, but I was in London and anyway I'm on a mission this year to write people more letters on lovely paper and in home made envelopes. So far the lucky recipients are loving a cheery bit of mail amongst their junk and bills. So I suggest you do your bit too as a belated national handwriting day gesture, go on, you might like it.
2. Valentine's Day - which I haven't missed (yet). My cards are normally ribbon based in some way or another, but I might try one of these this year - they're so adorable (and a bit less girly for hubby!) So here's a lovely robot based pdf template for you.
3. For no reason at all other than it's just beautiful, make an origami star vase. Not sure it'll hold much water but I bet it looks fab full of buttons, badges, pens, ribbon or whatever you have too much of in your house.
4. A little not-so-light reading - bare with me... this one came through from the makers of marvellous Etsy so I know its going to be interesting, an interview with Naomi Klein of No Logo fame. I've not read it yet so take your chances but Etsy don't usually get it wrong.
Happy happy days.
