  I’ve been seeing a load of circular cushions popping up on blogs and decor sites lately. Are they the new cool?? I hope so – I like them!

Make a giant papier mâché Easter egg cup

I’m all about the fancy craft techniques. Some of my favourite DIY projects have been quite complex, such as my leather and tweed travel documents holder, or my tweed patchwork cushion.

DIY Easter decorations: make a nest from rope

Is anyone else noticing that the slightly smaller seasons like Easter and Halloween seem to be getting bigger and bigger each year? They’re fast approaching Christmas-scale proportions! Take Easter for example: the other day, I actually saw Easter greetings cards…! What’s happening to the world?! Now, I don’t think I’m quite ready for Easter greetings cards just yet, but one thing I can get on board with is DIY Easter decorations. After all, Easter is typically a time when families…
