Lately...



Lately I have had a slight obsession with bunting and dreaming about different ways to use it, then I stumbled upon paper garlands and now I think I may have a new one.

I read this and laughed because I was in the process of getting my new obsession started.

I think most of us have a certain something we become obsessed with, what's your thing?

Happy Friday friends

At the moment, lino cut printing. Haven't done it since HSC Art (many, many, many years ago haha) but I really love it! I paint and draw so its something dear to my heart. I have been carving out designs and I plan to print some in the next few weeks when time permits. I'm excited! Will post the results on my blog too so watch out for it!

parties! which gives such a scope for including things like bunting among many other things! i've changed my mind about the next craft night at lou's - i want to make paper garlands with you instead!

I made one of these last winter from various recycled papers (sorry it seems I'm not allowed to paste the link in this post) & old music sheets... they're so fun to make and yours is particularly pretty with very well-chosen colors !

Sonia said...

They are delightful! I'm sooo making one.

What a cute project ~ very crafty!

Sometimes I get into a really good book and become obsessed with reading it until the end. Oh my poor boys have had to eat many a burnt supper... :)

Have a Happy weekend Cathie!

Well I completely understand the bunting obsession!
Mmmmm..lately though it would have to be making scented linen fresheners for gifts...I get to used up snippets of fabric, and they smell divine!

This is totally the way I live my life...I go crazy for this or that, eating, sleeping, breathing, the passion de jour...until some thing else tickles my fancy. I love your cheery bunting...so fun...smile on...Rosie

Hello Cathie!
Can't wait to catch up on all the good stuff you have going on here! I adore those circle buntings, I have them stretched all across my yard, I found them on free Pretty Things For You, and Libbie and I made some up for Annie's birthday. Then I had another party, up they go in my front yard, and I am hosting a wedding reception, so I am in the process of making more, I can't seem to get enough of that bunting!

Love how yours turned out with the different patterns and colors. You are the BEST!!!
Kate
