Modern gingerbread house pattern from Oh Happy Day.


217/365 Woven sweatshirt. I saw this tutorial on the Forge awhile ago and I’ve been wanting to try it for awhile. I used a $3 sweatshirt from Savers and I must say it looks a lot better than when I bought it!

216/365 Delicious breakfast! This is a bit silly but I’m really terrible at poaching eggs and this one actually turned out perfectly.

I’m back, everybody! Sorry for the extended hiatus, but travelling and attempting to post proved to be too much. I’ve got plenty of sandcastles and friendship bracelets and other little crafts from the past month to post, but for now I’m just going to start with today’s project and then try to catch up from there. I’ll be backdating my entries so keep an eye out for that stuff! So, coming to you live from Melbourne is project #214.
214/365 Paper birdhouse. I’ve been in Melbourne for almost three weeks now and I’m doing my best to make it feel like home. After a whirlwind trip up the east coast of Australia and then to the Red Centre, it’s nice to stay put. This little birdhouse seemed symbolic of that. I got the template from Nicole Headey and used some fancy paper. It seemed a little boring so I added a little watercolour to the pattern on the roof to spruce it up a bit.

170/365 Bottle necklace. I have been operating on little to no internet for the past few weeks since I’ve been travelling in Australia, so there is a major backlog of posts! But in order to keep things a little current, I’m going to post a few here and there and then catch up on the older dates once I’m settled in Melbourne. This necklace was made in Byron Bay, NSW. I filled the bottle with the beautiful sand of Byron, added a silver feather, and strung it on some pink waxed thread. A great souvenir from an absolutely beautiful place.


151/365 another beaded double-wrap charm bracelet. The other one was a gift, but I had to have one for me too! The beads make the most satisfying clacking when you shake them…
