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.
My first cinemagraph effort! And yes that is a solar-powered waving Queen, why do you ask? 🙂
If you would like to learn how to make your own GIF file like the one above – where only one small part of the image is moving – then check out my tutorial here. Have fun!

I’ve written a short page here where I talk about 3D printing; what it is, what I think about it and what it could mean for the future of crafts and manufacturing. It’s pretty exciting I think and in 20 years it could have changed the world!
I’ve had my account for a while but I’ve only just got stuck into using Pinterest properly and frequently….so basically this is a shameless plug to try and get you to follow me (if you want)!

Following on from my suitcase relining project, I’ve put together this list of tutorials on how to revamp old suitcases and trunks or re-purpose them into awesome items such as speakers, tables and pet beds! I hope you find some inspiring ideas 🙂
I’d been on the lookout for a vintage suitcase for a while and then I spotted one at a carboot sale and nabbed it for £5 – yay! This page shows how I lined it with a lovely soft fleece fabric, and I’ve also written instructions on how to line it with paper, plus included ideas for other luggage revamps. Enjoy!

In preparation for Christmas gift giving, I’ve made some budget based gift guides, plus lots of gift guides for other occasions. I’ve included a wide range of price points whilst trying to only pick those products with very high ratings on Amazon. I’ve also tried to be a bit creative and think outside the box so the choices aren’t the same as always:)
I hope you find them useful!
And here are a few which are aimed at certain hobbies or other special occasions:
