Guest post – Bugs and Fishes

Happy holidays everyone! I hope you’re recovering gracefully from the Christmas period. I know my waste-line has suffered drastically, but it makes for an even better New Years resolution.

A week ago my seasonal switch plates featured on Laura Howard’s lovely blog, Bugs and Fishes. I just haven’t gotten around to posting about it since crazy Christmas festivities and gorging on everything in my path has been getting in the way.

I recently picked up Laura’s completely adorable felt crafting book. It’s full of the cutest felting projects that will keep you entertained all year. I would strongly suggest nabbing this little treasure.

Well, have you recovered from the piggery of Christmas?

Lovely mention – Irish House and Home

I’m still completely bowled over to have been asked to do a write up for House and Home. And for it to appear on their site. Which is somewhere I creep regularly.

This is my first mention here in Ireland, and I’m excited to see where this can will take me. The publicity my blog has received to date hasn’t felt 100% real, since it was mentioned in far-away lands (not that I’m not obscenely appreciative), but now there’s a chance that someone I know or am related to might actually see my tutorial on an Irish site – kind of extremely surreal.

My tutorial can now be found on the Irish House and Home online How-To section. Here is a direct link to the tutorial on their site. A big thanks to Jimmy who was a pleasure to work along side, and who was painfully patient in my scrambling attempts to put together better images for the site. This pretty much made my November.

p.s. See current profile picture. 

Lovely mention – Design*Sponge

This one was and still is pretty surreal. My dust covers on Design*Sponge. A big holla to Kate at Design*Sponge who was a pleasure to work with, and so down to earth. 
And on a side note, I went into Easons the other day to pick up the widely raved about new Design*Sponge book, and was told it was not yet published. Insert blank crazed stare. I explained to said teller that it in fact was released, but got told it wouldn’t be released until mid October … facepalm. 
Below is a cute video I found this morning staring Grace Bonney, the creator of Design*Sponge, talking about how the site and book came to be. I want this life. A girl can dream.
