An alternative to recycling

I have so much craft stuff! It is hard to keep my tiny work room organised but I do like to be organised so I love new storage ideas but I like my storage to be pretty! I have found a really cheap and colourful way of organising my pens, pencils, paintbrushes, knitting needles and crochet hooks and also to make a little vase for a posy on my desk.
It is so straight forward it
hardly needs explaining but here goes.. get an old tin can (the ones with the easy open tops are best as no sharp edges) wash and dry thoroughly. Select a pretty piece of oilcloth (approx 20cm x 10.5cm). Using a glue gun secure one of the short sides down, wrap oilcloth around tin and glue in place. You're done. Then make another, and another.. it's addictive! Nx

Viva office

I'm nosey! I love seeing other people's workrooms and studios. Here is my own office/refuge/place for hoarded things and treasures..

Viva decks out Lovebox Festival

Those of you who attended Lovebox Festival in London on 18-19th July will probably have seen our oilcloth and papel picado banners on show.. We supplied a lovely mix of oilcloths for table decking (emerald green hibiscus, yellow hibiscus, red strawberry, aqua rose and light blue mums) as well as over 90 metres of banners!
