New Website!

Welcome to my new website address and design…it’s probably long overdue!

I’ll be continuing to post craft tutorials, as before, plus I’m hoping to add a bit more content myself; mainly graphic designs and arty projects. I have a few ideas but it’ll take a little while for me to plan this (slightly) new direction for the blog.

Stay tuned, and thanks for visiting 🙂

Fun & Quirky Greetings Cards – UK

This business has been a looonnnng time in the making, but The Card Connoisseur is finally here!

I have started selling greetings cards (just in the UK at first) that feature original illustrations by me and are all printed on quality card. I’m really excited about concentrating on this business, and can’t wait to add more and more designs… as well as some handcrafted cards too later on.

Thanks to everyone who has a browse 🙂

DIY Miniature Bookbinding

I have been working on putting together this Skillshare class for a while now, and it’s finally finished 🙂
In the bite-size lessons, I will teach you exactly how to make a miniature hand-bound book.
Each book is finished with a smart leather cover, and measures only 1″ wide!
The mini books have stitching down the spine (rather than just glue) to make them extra durable, which means that they can be used to actually write little messages in. And, if you add an eyepin, you can turn it into a necklace pendant if you like.

Thanks to anyone who enrols!

Sad Day

I feel a bit weird about posting about someone dying – especially someone who I don’t actually know – but I’ve decided to make an exception in this case. That’s because, being a 90s kid, Robin Williams featured a lot in my childhood. 5 of my all-time favourite films (Dead Poet’s Society, Hook, Mrs Doubtfire, Jumanji and Aladdin) were as good as they were because of him. So I’m sad today, and feeling nostalgic.
Mr Williams was a total one-off who can’t ever be replaced. At least he will live on in a whole load of awesome films.
