Dolly Donations

DollsI unfortunately can’t take credit for all these dolls. My friend Kris made four in the time it took me to make one! Her two are on the left and Poppet cried when I took the pink one away from her.

I recently stumbled across the incredible website “Dolly Donations”, which assists those who wish to make dolls for children in need. Continue reading

DIY Wall Decals

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!
