Issue 2 of the online magazine “Hazed” is out now and I’m quite excited.
This little mag is the beginning of some big and beautiful things. With a focus on New Zealand small businesses, Hazel from “Hazel Loves Design” began Hazed in order to promote our burgeoning indie design community. I can just see this gem on the shelves right next to Peppermint and Mollie Makes some day. Continue reading
I think I like bunting. Maybe even … REALLY like it. Continue reading
16 pairs of jeans and lots of fabric scraps = an heirloom quilt for Poppets first birthday! Continue reading
I’m one of those annoying customers that wants the wonder product that doesn’t exist. The shoes that you can wear to a wedding, but are also suitable for jogging, housework and picnics. The hairstyle that looks good now and also 6 months later when you haven’t had time for another trim. Or the windows computer that doesn’t crash (and then tell you off for not shutting down your computer properly. What’s with that?!).
Versatility is wonderful and yesterday I rediscovered the benefits of owning a deskpad. That’s right. That boring piece of office stationery that goes relatively unnoticed by many. Continue reading
Who would’ve thought you could decorate a nursery using napkins? Up until recently, certainly not me. In fact, I would’ve pictured something tacky, flimsy and just outright laughable.
I’m proud to say that I think this project is far from that. But if you can’t bear the thought of using something so outrageous on your walls, you could use tissue paper just as effectively.
I love the texture and feminine touch it adds to the room. We definitely needed a girly touch in there.

I love blog surfing. It starts with finding a great blog that I peruse for an hour or so, before I get distracted by their exciting looking blog roll and I spend another few hours scrolling through all those blogs too.
A wonderful time waster but it’s so inspiring! There are so many talented people out there.
It was one such expedition that I found “How About Orange” and her wall decal post. At first it seemed quite astounding that you could iron stiffened fabric onto a wall. I mean, how did someone even discover that? Was it by accident? Yet, I’m loving the idea. How cute would an elephant shape or child’s name on a nursery wall look, cut from your favourite fabric. It’s genius!
It won’t damage your walls, removes easily and means you don’t have to spend big $$’s on fancy store bought decals.
Check out her post here for more inspiration and a full tutorial. I haven’t tried it yet but it has quickly made it onto my to-do-list! Not to mention the blog has become a new fav of mine too. Thanks Jessica!
Why not turn your fabric scraps into works of art? Continue reading
