I challenge you not to be mesmerised while watching these little demo videos by RRcherrypie!


We went to pick out our very first Christmas tree yesterday (photos as soon as I can put it up…) and I couldn’t resist getting an alpaca nanoblock!

It’s the cutest thing ever and was so much fun to put together, I’m very tempted to get more!

Nanoblock Australia, and the Japanese website.

Take a look at wood & wool stool’s photostream – my new favourite place to look at beautiful photos of lovely things.

I’ve been spending a fair amount of time each day looking at beautiful things on flickr. I’d love to be decorating, making pretty items, and gazing at teeny baby clothes but in reality I’m facing up to the prospect of packing for our move.

For a couple of hours this week I wrestled with culling my fibre, fabric, yarn, and art supplies – I gave away my printer (we’ll get a new one to share) and laminator (impulse purchase as an art student when I decided that laminated items are a necessity) – still to go is a lot of arty, designery magazines, stationery items, paper and the sorts of colourful bits and pieces I have become an expert in collecting over the past 30 or so years.

If we get everything not currently being used daily organised and packed up, there’ll be so much less to do later… that’s the theory anyway. At nearly 39 weeks my motivation to pack is not quite enough to actually get me moving. Wish me luck!

My new favourite group on Flickr is Making Everyday Beautiful, so many lovely photographs of beautiful crafts, food, scenery, flowers – it’s a nice way to spend some time just soaking up some beauty.
