zero supplies crafting.

Well.. as I cant really get into crafting with all my stash until my housing situation has been resolved, but i dont like the lack of "making", I have been making up for it with making home made mincemeat (again cus I used up and gave away all the last lot) and home made mincepies with home made rough puff pastry (or is it ruff puff?) , making a christmas ham etc etc and the other day i sat quietly with a tray on my lap and made a few paperback book trees... all i needed was a glue stick and some old paperbacks. I saw these made last christmas on a cooking show the "Hairy Bikers" were doing. but there are tutorials online too if you didnt see that show. I think the tutorials recommend having a craft knife but i just ripped the books apart a bit randomly and hoped for the best.

I also added some glamour dust glitter to the trees to make them look frosty but it didint show up with the camera... so to make up for that failing, i went a little over the top with adobe photoshop effects lol. kept me out of trouble for a wee while.


  1. Creation with Calories - might have to go shopping for larger clothes as you store all that stash internally. May the house-hunt bear fruit speedily.

  2. Oh, never seen these before, very clever!!
    Hope you'll get your house situation sorted soon!!


Happy Halloween...

well it’s been another fun filled season of Halloween and autumn/fall projects, but, for the purposes of retail design teams, I’m moving on ...
