:: 52 Hellos: Week 08 (+ Bonus Soup!)

Hello! Hi! Hope you are well! I am running a little bit late with #52hellos this week, so sorry for that. I’ve been keeping myself a bit too busy and doing a bit too much this week. I’m slowing down over the weekend, cancelling plans and resting and trying to recharge and feel restored. Today’s agenda has pretty much been watching

:: Another Finished Blankie

  I know. I call blankets ‘blankies’. Yes, it’s a bit juvenile, but ‘blankie’ is much more about how a blanket is and feels than ‘blanket’ could ever be. This blanket is speedy and stripe-y. It’s the Speedy Stripe and people have been making these for ever and a day. To crochet this, I just chained A HUGE AMOUNT of stitches and

:: Win An Advance Copy Of ‘Craft For The Soul’

  Hi gang! Are you well? I am well. I’ve been doing some early morning crochet/coffee drinking/Brothers & Sisters watching. It’s a good way to start the day, a bit like getting in some ‘day off’ before the work day starts, if that makes any sense! I wanted to let you know that my next round of eCourses has been

:: Five Random Things

  Do you want to play Five Random Things? I am sure you do! It’s quite fun to mine the depths of your you-ness and come ups with a few weird/interesting facts to share. Like, what could be better than that? (Except watching Family Feud with a cup of tea and a bit of crochet in your lap?!) Here are

:: Win A My Abuelo’s Mexican Feast Prize Pack

  Some people know how to make really beautiful books and Daniella Germain is one of those kinds of people. You might remember that she wrote a book called My Abuela’s Mexican Feast a couple of years ago? Well this book is the follow-up. Her first book (a tribute to her grandmother) was super great, so I was excited to

:: Beautiful Brush Script Fonts To Download

Hullo! I love finding cute fonts. It seems like everyone is using these gorgeous brush script fonts at the moment, the kind that look like they were painted by hand. Perhaps you’d like to use them too and didn’t quite know where to find them? Well I know and I am keen to share! These ones are a few of

:: 52 Hellos : Week 07

  It’s Friday! Yay! I’ve tucked my work away for a while to read some cute letters that arrived for #52hellos this week and watch my favourite movie. This week’s hello is from my cute friend Betsy. Naw. I met Betsy in Bali on the Big Hearted Business Creative Retreat, but she’s also in the choir with my aunty so

:: Slow Down Rewards

  Let’s talk about this… I’m making a granny square blanket. I’m actually doing it pretty quickly, but it’s a repetitive task and ‘quickly’ means it’ll be done in a month or so. I LOVE doing things that take a bit of time. I understand, though, that not everyone is like me. Some people just can not be bothered to

:: Taking Stock: February

Hullo there. How are things with you? Things are good with me, I’ve been doing some fun stuff and feeling the year gather momentum. Can you believe that we’ll be into March in a couple of weeks? I totally CAN NOT. I thought I’d write a taking stock post, before February whizzes by.  There’s almost nothing better than slowing down

I am certain that her writing is as neat as mine!!! It’s the hand of a creative genius, don’t you think? In Linda’s envelope I found: A yellow, lined tale about a mama hummingbird
