... and Wool Against Weapons (finished pieces!)

You may remember that back in May we mentioned that we were taking part in Wool against Weapons by dusting off our knitting needles! Well, thanks to some fantastic friends we've been able to contribute a 5 metre peace scarf to this great cause!

Tip, Tools & Techniques - Makeup Brush Cleaner

Hello! Here's our regular feature where we share tips, tools & techniques that have caught our eye, things we have Pinned, and things we have tried. These are probably not going to change your life(!) but might make it a bit easier...

I do clean my makeup brushes occasionally but nowhere near often enough, and even then it's a bit of a half hearted swish around in soapy water! So, in an attempt to make myself feel virtuous, I decided to give this homemade makeup brush cleaner from Passion for Savings a go. Turns out it's really quick and easy!!

... and a Card Box Tutorial

We are lucky enough to be able to share another great guest post. We love how Jenny from Jennysis Crafts describes herself as a 'craftaholic'! She definitely puts that to good use with this tutorial on how to make a card box! 
Hi crafty people! I’m Jenny and just love to craft, I make all sorts and run a range of workshops so I can share my passion. I started blogging free tutorials and ideas recently at Jennysis Crafts and I want to encourage everyone to craft, no matter their experience. I run all sorts of workshops and teach all abilities and really wanted to offer these tutorials for anyone to reference. I stock all the materials I use in my shop so if you particularly like the papers or tools I use then you can buy them all in one place. Well enough about me, let’s get on with the crafting!

Tips, Tools & Techniques - Patina Pennies

Hello! Here's our regular feature where we share tips, tools & techniques that have caught our eye, things we have Pinned, and things we have tried. These are probably not going to change your life(!) but might make it a bit easier...
Patina is "a thin layer that forms on the surface of stone; copper, bronze and similar metals (tarnish produced by oxidation or other chemical processes)". It is also a great technique to give pennies a pretty colour!!
