Tiny Wet Felted Bowls

Tiny Wet Felt Bowls 1
Tiny Wet Felt Bowls 2

How do you store/organise your jewellery? For ever-growing collections of accessories and craft materials and trinkets, I made these tiny bowls as prototypes; I still haven’t decided if I should make more of them in the same size, or make in different sizes. Maybe I should make them into ones like Matryoshka…? But if I think about it, I actually have a lot of bowls, in different sizes and materials, to the point that l could call them a ‘collection’. Damn… I know, I cannot NOT collect things…

Anthropologie Knockoff Ribbon Necklace

Ever since Anthropologie opened its first London store in 2009, it has been giving me a great deal of pleasure and torment. Why? Because their products are truly inspiring, and also very expensive (well, for me, anyway). But then I discovered this brilliant blog yesterday, Flamingo Toes, where Bev the blog owner introduces lots of Anthropologie knockoffs with thorough how-to tutorials. After I found out that she has done a tutorial on my favourite necklace, there was no stopping for me. Read More

After writing the beaded bracelet tutorial yesterday, I got hooked on making more bracelets; I experimented using lots of different materials and the one I liked the most was incorporating lace with beads. The skill needed for the bracelet is exactly the same as yesterday’s, so again it’ll only take 5 to 10 minutes to make one. Hope you’ll enjoy the tutorial! Read More

Catcher in the Rye

Catcher in the Rye 1

Yeah, right, sorry about the title, because today’s post has nothing to do with the greatest story of all time. So, why the title? My hubby and I went to Rye, a beautiful town in East Sussex for a day trip, and I caught a cold there… And I just couldn’t help it. Sorry (and I mean it)! Anyway, if you are not too mad with me, I’d like to share some of the photos I’ve taken there. Read More

Don’t panic if the lines get wonky or smudged, as you can cover it up by adding thin lines with a liner or putting rhinestones. Read More
