Current Obsesion: Pressing Flowers

So earlier this year I got it into my head that I wanted to collect flowers, press them and make resin jewellery with them. Results on the resin jewellery were mixed but more on that later because today is all about flower pressing!

You need:

  • Flowers
  • Baking paper
  • Heavy books

Creative Market!

So if you follow me on social media you will probably know that I recently crossed off something from my life goals list: opening an art shop again!

Changing Seasons

Well I couldn’t find my shots from Christmas/Billy Idol Day… so this week will be all about Melbourne’s different seasons.

Most of you guys are overseas and I get a lot of questions about the seasons here. Probably because I talk about them like they are exciting… which they are to me because I grew up in North Queensland which only has 2 seasons: hot and slightly less hot. Growing up there, seasons were something you saw on American tv and I don’t think I really saw trees dropping their leaves until a few years ago!

Melbourne has 4 really distinct seasons.

Winter – June, July and August.

Winter is quite cold, I don’t think it’s gotten to below 0C while I’ve been here but the highs are usually between 8-12C but the wind chill is lower.

DIY Comfy Crochet Hook

After the amigurumi project I posted about earlier in the week, I was on the hunt to find a way to make using a thin crochet hook more comfortable for long periods of time. You can buy fancy special hooks which have thicker grips etc but I didn’t want to just throw out all the hooks I already had…

Amigurumi Dog

Morning! Another week, another busy day. I’m dreading the rest of February and March at the moment because it’s going to be so busy :( I have an Easter mini break to look forward to though so that’s something!

Almost all of the crafts I’ve been doing lately have been yarn related. I’m falling further and further into the world of yarn and every time I try one thing I want to try another harder step.

So amigurumi!

Sailor Moon Halloween Outfit

I had to get up at 4:30am this morning for a conference skype so I don’t think I’m quite running on all cylinders today… Ahaha Halloween photos… next week we’ll have Christmas!

I think you can guess who I was for last Halloween… I had 2 costumes, this version was my half arsed one which I pulled out of my closet:

Jacket: Angelic Pretty
Skirt: Supre
Scarf: Tie shop
