I wanted to let you know about my favourite craft site CUT OUT AND KEEP - simply marvellous. It's like a crafty jumble sale, with a kaleidoscope of community-posted projects. They vary wildly in time and complexity from a 5 minute cake to furniture re-cons, and in skill level from basic nail-art to tailoring a burlesque outfit.
If, like me, you have a house full of bits and bobs, lots of make-up and a reasonably well stocked kitchen, it really does bring back the days of 'rainy day' junk modelling and going mad with the pritt stick.
|From nurturestore.co.uk ...seriously, it's better than what I could make.|
Right, let's check out some of my faves (click on the pics, unless- because my computer is cheeky- the link is actually the caption. Ah, you'll get through just give it a click):
|Marshmallow Village by Meaghan M- just TOO cute. And Edible. I am Perdzilla raaa!|
|Purple Bleached Pants (trousers, not knickers, fellow Brits) by Twizzy|
|Mint-choc-chip brownies by KMOM14...why wait for St. Patrick's Day?|
|Flying heart keyholder by Jet H...love!!|
|Audrey Kitching's heart hat- need I say more?|
|DIY Miu Miu Sparrow Shoes by Stacie G|
|T-Shirt Shrug by EVEnl - from drab to fab, I've made several for hols!|
|40s Turban (our of an old T-shirt!) by Judith L- so vintage, so classic, so this year, so make it!|
|Darling fascinator by... moi! (Yes, it was for part of my Bridal party).|
Marvellous stuff. Having said that, thankfully something decent has appeared on the box (BBC4 - The Baroque) so I shall be painting glasses whilst being suitably inspired!
