Oh joyous day printable sparkler tags

No doubt I’m currently snorkelling with turtles by the time you read this (yes, totally rubbing it in).

Meanwhile, here is a cute free printable to make your 50c packet of sparklers befit your special celebration. It’s over on Polka Dot Bride for you today.

See you when I get back!

Paper rosette buttonhole

Hello, happy Thursday! Here is my latest post for Polka Dot Bride, a lovely paper rosette buttonhole for your man.

For those of us not planning a wedding, you can use the same technique to make adorable party decorations.

Atypical Type A DIY paper pinwheel

Hello friends! So the move went well on the weekend, thanks to our families’ help. I’d unpacked all of the essentials by the end of Sunday and since then I’ve been busy painting my office.

I’ll have some progress shots for you soon. In the meantime here is a sweet tutorial I did for Polka Dot Bride.

geometric clay place card holder by Atypical Type A

 

I had SUCH a good time working on this shoot so I’m pleased to present the final DIY from the day.

You can find all the instructions for the geometric clay place card holders over on Polka Dot Bride.

They’d work really nicely as little photo holders too, don’t you think?

Akimbo-Facet-table-number-title

It is going to be another stinking hot weekend here in Adelaide. Hence, perfect to be spending doing some craft under the airconditioner.

I made these table numbers for Polka Dot Bride. You can use the same technique to make all kinds of art – like ‘love’ or a heart as a Valentine’s Day gift perhaps?

Check out the project details here.

Here’s a fun little DIY to finish off the week. Find the details over on Polka Dot Bride.

Happy Thanksgiving to my lovely American readers! My folks are in the US at the moment spending the holiday with my brother and sister-in-law and meeting my new baby nephew – I’m so jealous! Even though we don’t celebrate it here, it’s a lovely reminder to count my blessings.

Hot chocolate jar homemade gift with free printable label

My latest project is up on Polka Dot Bride.

It was designed as a sweet wedding favour, but without the wedding-specific label it would make a great idea for homemade Christmas gifts.

Check out the full post!

P.S. Don’t forget about the free blog event I’m speaking at tonight at Woodcroft Library! Meet some likeminded people and ask some local lifestyle bloggers about why they blog and the future of the industry. Hope to see you there!

peg escort cards

Gosh, I have missed blogging! I’ve had computer issues (as in, I didn’t have a computer because it died) and then we went on holiday. I am still catching up on work which means I’ve had little time for blog projects, but I have some good stuff on the horizon. I’ve just signed up for another of Holly Becker’s classes so hopefully that will help motivate me back into the blogging swing of things.

In the meantime, here is my latest tutorial for Polka Dot Bride. You could adapt it for everyday life by gluing magnets to the back and instead of table numbers, stamping filing notes (e.g. ‘To pay’ or ‘To file’) or days of the week (to plan your meals).

You can find the full tutorial here.
