I thought I would open a little shop using Felt.Co.NZ

Take a look around. Shipping costs are within NZ but if you are overseas message me and I can advise shipping costs!

Happy 2021!

I have been enjoying collaging little boxes (usually from the pantry) but now I had created a situation where they were starting to annoy me. Then this morning I thought, yes, I will collage an old box and put the little boxes in the box. And here is the result.

Starting with a picture of ‘the situation’…

Finding an old box…

The initial A4 and A3 paper I stuck on is one of my own designs using domain free images found on the internet.

Then I used some beautiful Michel Design Works serviettes to pull it all together

And here is the finished result…

And then I saw a bottle in my bathroom and thought, I wonder…

It’s still a bit wet so we will see what it looks like when it dries.

Quite a good start to the day I’d say!

Now what shall I do.

Take care ~ Jo x

I’ve been doing a bit of junk journalling, and using paper and collage. So yesterday, when my husband bought me some low carb Gin and Tonic and the box was so pretty I decided to collage it up…

So, take one gin and tonic carry box…

Now I just have to think about what I can put in it. I might modpodge the outside to strengthen it first though.

Hope this inspires you! ~ Jo x

I’m getting quite addicted to making these collaged window envelopes and little folders with secret pockets and places to write or tuck memories, poems, or special thoughts.

Send to someone in the post to make someone happy!

Or give as a special gift ~ tuck some money or a gift voucher into the pockets along with a special meaningful note. It’s more than just a card!

Or give to a friend to tuck into their Junk Journal.

Hi there!  I thought being in lockdown (in NZ) for the past two weeks I would have done way more creatively, but to be honest, I’ve been too busy, especially with work!  Anyway, a long Easter holiday weekend is perfect to have enough time to start to create.  So I just made this up as I went along…

Love your life ~ Freemotion sewing

I started by adding the red floral square and then picked up other pieces of fabric and it just emerged from there.

Window of opportunity … freemotion sewing

Maybe my next one will be bubbles … stay in your bubble!

So much fabric, so little time! I really enjoyed making this.  So many colours and patterns…

Just finished this little emboidery I started a few months ago.  One of those things you do on the side when you’ve got a few spare moments.  It’s something a little different for me because I didn’t use the sewing machine.  But I do love hand sewing.    The finished product is only 210mm x 200mm so quite dainty.

One of the things I like is that it isn’t perfect.  There are frayed edges and uneven stitches, which is not my natural way of doing things…. but I just love the finished look.
