I have my cousin and her beautiful 6 month old wee boy staying with me at the moment, and one of his recent achievements is sitting up all by himself. Inevitably, with our polished ceramic tiles, that does tend to end in the occasional face-plant into the cushions that are strategically placed around him. Then I saw this fantastic bubble quilt over at Awaiting Ada and immediately sent it to my cousin to check out. This looks like a fabulous solution to the face-plant problem, and with the addition of a bit of non-slip material on the bottom, would be a great item in the “take baby anywhere & he’ll be comfortable” arsenal!
We were planning a bit of a craft day which we have, of course, run out of time for. But maybe next time she comes to stay . . .
This is just about the oldest item on my to-do list – I love this style. Whether it be these definitions for labels, or for a cushion cover, or even just on a canvas on the wall. So I was super excited to come across The Painted Hive and Kristine’s fabulous tutorial complete with free printables to create these gorgeous labels for yourself. Now if anyone has seen any more words/definitions around I’d love to know about it – I’d like to get a little collection going then hit a few projects all at once!
I saw some coloured light switch plates in our local hardware store the other day and couldn’t believe the price of them! And that was just for plain covers – not even patterned! However not too long ago this tutorial fell into my inbox, and I knew that it would be so cool to have a go at these. Read More
I’ve been hoarding toilet rolls since I came across this on Pinterest and I don’t have enough yet to start this project but I definitely have some ideas about taking it a step or two further by poking the “wall end” of the plug through a hole in the back of the box, and creating a kind of charging station. That’s the theory anyway – although I think that the heat from charging may not mix well with the cardboard of the toilet paper rolls so it may just be a single-purpose storage facility after all.
