More colourfulness please!

Once again, sorry for being so quiet! I have too much to do! ;)

Anyway, here's a quick look at some of my favourite blog posts from recent days (or weeks - as the case may be!)



I loved Miss Mustard Seed's Tissue Paper pom-poms - I'm in two minds about making strings and strings of them and filling the ceiling in our spare room with their colourfulness.

I saw a photograph this morning of a teen girl's bedroom, and it was so colourful and young, and I feel like I need to bring some of that brightness into my home!

Besides, the spare room is so bland...wonder if Shaun will mind too much!

The link above will take you to the tutorial.

Then this ring has my insides swirling at its prettiness. It seems I'm attracted to anything feminine and pretty lately - look out world! - and this is so perfect. I was going through all my jewellery over the weekend, of which I have *way* too much and wear *way* too little of.

Anyway, the ring is being given away by the lovely Luscious Lockets, so enter the competition now!

I love crafts, and there's nothing I love more than a folk craft. Here 'i do' it yourself shows you how to make papel picado, where designs are cut out of tissue paper and suspended.

Another possibility for my spare room's ceiling? Perhaps I should do them both! What say you?

Finally, something fun needs to be thrown into my mix!


Geeks are Sexy challenged readers to sculpt something...well, geeky, obviously...into fruit. The photo is one of the results. Click here for more.

They actually look a little disgusting; I suppose it's because they've sat for a while. And to think there are children out there who've never tasted a banana at all.

Oh, the spoilt lives we lead!
