small craft + craft for smalls

A small amount of crafting going on here - in the form of a hand carved stamp (stars in circles) ...


Once I locate my stamp pad, I'll show you how it worked out! I plan to stamp some natural linen tape that I found ages ago. In other news, my recently bought copy of Little Artists Handmade arrived in the post ...


Written by Carly Schwerdt, one half of the Umbrella Prints team, this brand new crafty book is great  - I love that there are great projects for kids AND mums/adults. Little Mister and I are going to enjoy this one together - first cab off the rank will be homemade stickers. I am looking forward to trying a few of the clever projects for myself too, especially this printed stool ...


I hope your week is as crafty as you would like it to be!

I can't wait to get my hands on that book! It looks fab, Carly is one clever cookie isn't she. So completely inspirational!
Please show your take on the stool project when you finish Nic, I know it'll be just gorgeous. x
