.doilies everywhere. June 25, 2011
I’m a bit of a fan of doilies, but I don’t actually have any adorning my tabletops or benches. I prefer them used in various creative ways, and have found a few lovely ideas on Made It - I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed finding them:

.book-love. May 13, 2011
I adore books. When I was a girl, my best friend and I were happiest when we were hanging out at each other’s houses reading. My Dad had an every-growing collection of classics and modern literature which I still love to look through when visiting Mum. Many of his favourites are still on the bookshelf in the lounge room because they simply became part of the decor. I admit to buying books which I may never get around to reading but still love – and always hope that one day, I’ll get to read them all. I struggle to write inscriptions in books because it feels like defacing them, although I have forced myself a few times! I have books that I read over and over – mainly the Bible, and also the Narnia Chronicles, I Am The Cheese, The Secret Garden, The Little Prince and The Shack. I am partial to vintage books, and although I love the idea of using them in craft projects, I can never bring myself to actually cut them up or re-purpose them.
I know you don’t have to buy an actual book any more to read amazing stories. You can carry them all on your iPad or your Kindle and travel the world with thousands of books at your fingertips. But there is still something very reassuring about picking up a great book, turning its pages and reading a fantastic story.
I like these book-inspired items on Made It and thought you might too. (Even if I couldn’t bring myself to drawing on them or punching shapes out of them, I still really like these items!)

.long time no post. March 25, 2010
Well, 12 days have gone by since I last added to my blog. Just want to say thanks to all of you who have been checking in on me. Yes, we have all been a bit unwell (still have one sick little person) & we also celebrated a 4th birthday as well. So all round, have simply not been able to sit & enjoy the luxury of a creative post.
But today, I finally get to return & enjoy a bit of craft-love. I’ve been inspired by Made It sellers and have found some lovely pics that I enjoyed, so thought you might also.
Tomorrow, when the sun is hopefully out, I can take some pics of some things I’ve been working on & post them for you.
So til then, enjoy the images below!
