Recycle Craft: How to make an Envelope with Printable Template

By

I’ve been making my own recycled envelopes for a long time, it’s great on so many levels. Firstly I never run out of envelopes!

But really my favorite reason is re-using lots of paper that would normally get thrown out,…

I’m not a yarn snob, but there is something so luxurious about working with beautifully spun pure merino wool that makes every other yarn experience pale in comparison.

Kids Craft: Colour Bleed Art

By

Some of the best creative notions come about from happy accidents, like today’s Kids Art Activity Project, Colour Bleed Art. Recently my youngest created a sweet little mermaid illustration with felt tip pens. She was disappointed however to find that her art had sustained water damage.
