Scrap Busting

Fabric scraps

I have a fabric scrap problem.  

'I still have 2 more boxes of scraps to go through. They seem to multiply all on their own! I think my 2016 resolution might be to be scrap free.'

Well, it's almost September 2016 and I have barely looked at sorting through fabric scraps.

Pallet & Crate Stack

I took this shot from our car as we drove past. Seeing all those pallets and wood crates probably just mean work for the fruit farmer but to me they looked beautiful. 

Pinbellish 44

Welcome to Pinbellish!

A Pinning Celebration


The first Pinbellish Pin Party was held on the 4th September 2015 and this months party will see us celebrating a year of pinning!

It's been fun filling up my Pinterest boards with all your awesome creations and I want to thank all of you for sharing them with us. I also want to thank my amazing co-hosts who have been fantastic at every turn.

This months Pinbellish is the final periodical pin party, instead we will be switching to a perpetual pin party. To Celebrate the new #Pinbellish format with us I would like to invite each of you to link not only the pins you would like shared and re-shared but also your Pinterest profile and your blog home page. HAPPY PINNING!

Crochet Butterfly Ribbon

Crochet Butterfly Ribbon

I had big plans for this crochet ribbon. It was going to be the cutest little garland for decorating the Christmas tree as part of my plans for a handmade Christmas.


 My netbook is refusing to play nice this week and I've lost patience with it. Instead I am bringing you some mobile phone shots. 

Painting The Entrance

Apricot wall paint. When was apricot paint fashionable? ughhh

It's #FinishItFriday where I admit to yet another project that needs to be completed.

A while ago (okay, a long while ago) I started painting our entrance. Our entrance/hallway which has 6 doors, high ceilings, furniture and a constant flow of stuff is not the easiest of places to paint.



After last weeks dilemma of not being able to improve the lovely in flight shots I downloaded the latest version of Digital Photo Professional (free RAW image editor for Canon DSLR owners). This week I've edited the raw images using DPP and I've also edited the JPG versions using Picasa.

Can you tell which is which?

Two Uses Tuesday 91

Announcement: Two Uses Tuesday 91 is a three week party! From August 1st through August 19th you can link up your crafts, DIYs, recipes and upcycles to one GIANT link up.

With the party being so long, there will be no last to link feature at party 92... BUT! Each host will be choosing 3 favorites to feature!!
In celebration of Sarah's birthday in August, she will be tweeting and pinning as many birthday related posts as she can. They just might be her feature picks too...
