craft flat lays

My house is like an ADHD craft bomb site at the moment.

I've got mere days before I'm no longer on holidays and free to play so I'm playing hard while I can.

I did NOT set these shots up they are actually all on various surfaces in a room that shows you the stuff I'm up to.


These are tiny clippings of flowers from verges near my home. I'm testing out their hardiness and use for tiny buttoneires for an event I'm running.

I've been breaking my hand doing calligraphy for name badges for this same event. Because it's for wedding industry people I'm a little wary of my writing attempt looking amateur but I think it'll have to do! The plan is to adhere those tiny bouquets to these name badges somehow...

I'm now obsessed with succulents and the apparent ease at which they are to grow! So I've gently snapped off all the leaves of all the succulents I have at home and am drying them out so I can then set them up for self-generation. It's like growing money really because of course I've fantasised about having a nusery of these cuties!

And then there is crochet. Sure it's a granny hobby to some and maybe I'm ruining my future retirement activity but I wanted to remember how to do it so I'm back in the rhythm and got it happening. I'm building a colourful blanket of granny squares right in time for summer at this rate. Ha!

As I'm pretty idea-mad, I'm planning to combine all my ideas to create little crochet cosys for tiny succulent pot plants with a hand calligraphied name. of course!

Honestly I don't know if I have time for work when there's so much play to be had.
