Cute figures by magicbeanbuyer

Oh gosh, it has been a while since my latest post here. I was so very busy with my photography I ended up forgetting other pleasures. So sorry for that! I still keep an eye on all the Flick groups I manage and let me start the summer craft blogging with something really cute. Check out below.

Look what I saw from the group pool!

These cute Mr & Mrs are so nice I am very tempted to make original wedding suppliers list.  Created by magicbeanbuyer from the USA and she delivers worldwide! She sells her handmade items on Etsy.com

Recycling paper tutorial

I wrote on my handmade blog a simple paper make tutorial which I put together with my 6 yr old son who took the photographs and did some of the shredding.

The process is simple and once you’ve done the moulding, you have a choice of pressing your paper dry, couching or to leave it on your mould to dry. You can also use the rolling pin to make your paper smooth.

Anyway, check the links below for the materials and instructions. I ‘ve added several other papermaking instructions for you to choose from. I hope you enjoy this simple activity.

cute pincushion by kup kup

Photography is taking it’s own life and I am now between my two favourite crafts, busy working to keep up to both.  Although I’ve started late on April’s crafty blogging, here is one cool pincushion that is both useful and delightful to the eye, beautifully handcrafted by kup kup land.
