the year of the animal

The new year is fast approaching. Have you purchased your new 2012 calendar yet?

Hmm. Get yourself sorted then.

We are lusting after this charming 2012 Die Cut Animal Calendar from Kate's Paperie. Retailing at $29.95USD, the calendar features both farm and woodland animals, with each animal holding two months per year.

They can also be easily folded into free-standing paper decorations when you're finished.

polly wally doodle...

Are you a a scribbler, a sketcher, or a day-dreaming doodler?

Yes? Then this is for you my dearies! The Doodle Duvet, by Stitch Designworks, is an oh so cuddly and snuggly blanket printed to look like a giant piece of notebook paper!

nows the time

Heres a nifty craft idea we wanted to share with you.
We made this offbeat clock using an old vinyl record we bought from the local vintage market for about $1AUD and a clock movement we bought off ebay for around $4AUD.

Using the hole already in the record we poked the clock movement through, put the hands back on and hey-presto, a little doozy of a clock for the mantelpiece.

Took 5 minutes ... Easy peasy!
