Back to school supplies

Back to school supplies

It’s on the horizon - there’s a new term coming! September is such a energetic month and I still remember that slightly giddy feeling from when I was a kid at getting everything ready for the next school year - new shoes, new pencil case and, most excitingly, new supplies for inside that pencil case!  Whilst I may not be going back through the school gates next month (well, not as a pupil anyway) I do still get that back to school feeling so here are some tips for getting ready whether you're a parent or a big-kid and yes,...

Planner and Bullet Journal Spreads with Stamps

It’s no secret if you’ve been following me on social media or get my newsletters that I love a bit of planning, specifically in my Bullet Journal.  What I love about Bullet Journaling is how versatile it is and how, depending on what’s going on between work, home, kids etc, I can tailor it to support me however I need at that time.  What I have found though is that there are some key tools I use week in week out in my layout no matter what I’m focusing on and it’ll come as no surprise that some of those...

Stamping on Fabric

Stamping on to fabric produces a really great effect and is a great way of adding a personal touch and a bit of detail to something that might otherwise seem plain.  It’s also a lot of fun to do. But what sort of things can you make? The possibilities are endless but here’s a few ideas: Tableware – you could brighten up a table cloth, linen placemats, napkins or even make some napkin rings. (At for Christmas you could even make reuseable crackers!) Wrapping paper – inspired by the Japanese Furoshiki, reuseable fabric wrapping paper is becoming increasingly popular. Summer...
