Spending my Monday relaxing after the madness that was the run up to Sunday's Crafty Market.
I was like the thing that couldn't stop. Clipping some paper here, sewing a banner there, a bake of fimo in the oven, glue gun heating up in the corner (which I accidentally left on after leaving for the market, Yikes!)
It was a good market, loving the new 12-5pm time, just makes the days that bit more condensed.
But yes after all that it's nice to have a slow day (or evening at least). And what do I browse online during these periods of lackadaisical lounging, you ask?
Well I'll tell you. It all depends on the mood so I'll break it into catagories but here are a few of my go-to-guys and gals for creative titalation:
There are many truly spectacular sites you may already know about such as Doe-C-Doe
But for a nice smattering of styles I love to browse the Guest posts of the Sew, Mama, Sew August Hand Sewing month. Look how pretty:
Paper craft and printables:
Again I shan't confine myself to just the one. I don't do a whole lotta paper craft.. yet but I love to allow a sense of awe to wash over me as I look at some of the beautiful and generously provided printables and projects on the likes of How about Orange and A Fanciful Twist, I mean check this out:
The Good Life and Eco living
Gotta be Sallygardens Smallholdings and it's Irish based so it's more relevant for me.
I also enjoy Our One Block Diet from Sunset great stuff altogether. Would that we got the weather for these kinda outdoor feasts!
I love me a good chair make-over, don't you? My favorite website for all these shenanigans has absolutely got be Centsational Girl. I love her knack for taking truly thrifty finds and creating sheer class. You've just gotta check out what these stairs looked like before she did her thing:
Fashion and Clothing
I've never found a blog that gives me all I need in this department, I'm sure there's one out there I just haven't found it yet. Craftster is the business in this department.
Big Dreams of the Great outdoors
One day I shall have a garden fit for a hedge dwelling little hippy-at-heart like me but until then Sunset has something for all outdoor areas from balconies to big open spaces.
And always worth a look is One Pretty Thing. Such a brilliant collection of tutorials and projects. Its simply a mecca.
