You know I go batty for all things Etsy! What better place to track down some one-of-a-kind goodies you're not going to find in the stores? It's also a fab little hub to meet creatives locally who are making some amazing products. Well, The Etsy Design Awards are here to celebrate such creative folk, so why not enter yourself or a friend to win some big prizes?
I'm not going to lie; I've dabbled in just about every craft know to man (and woman) over the years - but I never quite grasped how amazing these crafts were until I saw some of the things you could produce through knitting, sewing, stitching and crochet. Let's look at some of the images I've discovered from my fave new craft website. They will, seriously, make you want to craft immediately!
Creatives, you know by now that I'm in dire need of an intervention to deal with my increasing candle addiction. But if I may be afforded one last binge, like the contestant have on The Biggest Loser before they start their diet, I wish it to be with a Pigeon & Weasle candle. Primarily, the scent 'Red Frog', which as the title suggests, smells like the lollies of the same name. This is one candle making story with a difference - and it involves utilising recycled beer bottles. Genius!
You know I love supporting local creatives who are out there doing amazing things. So when I stumbled upon Nookroad, a website that not only showcases amazing handmade items that you can purchase, but explains the story and process behind them, I was onto creator Keren Moran to find out more about this inspiring endeavour.
