Secret message egg

In the spirit of the season, here’s my latest tutorial up on Polka Dot Bride. Again, it’s wedding-oriented but of course you can put any kind of message inside.

Do you have any plans for the Easter long weekend? We’ll be in Hawaii so this will be the extent of my Easter crafts this year. You can find more fun ideas over on my Easter Pinterest board.

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.

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.

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!

Dressing up in his wedding suit at ten in the morning when he’s on holidays – the things The Man does for me!

These watch parts came inside a vintage tin that we bought in an Austrian antique shop. I knew they would come in handy for something and here’s the result.

Homemade lemon curd favours

So here’s the reason why I had a batch of homemade lemon curd sitting in my fridge last week! It’s a lovely hostess gift or wedding favour, especially if you have your own lemon tree (or know someone who does).

If you want to keep it all to yourself, you can pop it into readymade meringue or tart cases for an easy dessert or even just slather it onto a thick slice of fresh bread and top with quark cheese, cream cheese or cream.

Head over to Polka Dot Bride for the recipe plus the cute tag for you to print.
