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

  • I made heart ones out of cardboard a while back and I still love them: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chunkychooky/4387862427/in/set-72157623473315325/
    yours are lovely. x

  • 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 !

  • 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!

    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!

  • hi, this has been something ive been working on too!! except..how do you cut out all the circles? do you have a circle cutter or something? like someone else mentioned, ive used nana's old songbooks before to cut out and make pretty angel hangings with.

  • Hello Sweet Cathie..
    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

  • I know what you mean by bunting obsession….i just love it. i love buying the fabric and hanging the bunting in fun places around the house depending on the mood/theme of what we are up to…

  • The bunting is darn cute, my friend. You capture your works gorgeously always!

  • 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!!!
