white calligraphy on kraft

Just a bit of eye candy for you.

Opt for something different by using a white calligraphy pen rather than a black one. I think the look is very elegant, and these images seem to have a lovely vintage feel to them.
Oh how one wishes for a steady hand!

kraft gift wrapping with natural elements

Here's a few beautiful, quick and easy gift wrapping ideas recently spotted on pintrest.

As always, my favourite trusty kraft wrap is teamed up with natural elements. Have a wander around your home, and you'll be sure to find something to attach to your gift to make it unique.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

wrapping kit gift box

You haven't seen much action here for a while. We are STILL having service provider problems with our new internet connection. So all systems are on 'go slow' here for a while. Please be patient.

On a positive note, I'd thought I'd share a wrapping kit gift box that I put together for a darling friend of mine over the festive season.

 Cute little printable tags and note cards.

 A variety of ribbons, twines and cottons.

Tissue papers and gift bags.

All tucked nicely into a pretty little box.I thought it turned out quite well. What do you think?

My inspiration came from over here.

down time

Apologies to my lovely readers- I currently have no interenet connection. And apparently wont have any until th 27th Decmeber *aarrrh!*. Some confusion between our new and old service providers has left us internet-less. My lovely neighbour has offered her services to check messages, but i wont post on the blog until I'm up and running again.
Have a lovely Christmas everyone!

Christmas Gift Wrap

Christmas brings out the best of everything!

I have found some absolutely lovely gift wrap ( or wrapping paper to some) recently and just had to share. I'm not a traditional green and gold type of gal, so these gift wraps are just that little bit different.

I just couldn't help myself. I had to add a few bird print gift wraps. I've always been a bird lover.

Gone are the days when you could only buy traditional gift wrap- being red, green or gold. There is such a choice of wrapping now to cater to anyone's theme. Be it traditional, modern, geometric, vintage or natural, you're such to find a gift wrap to suit you!

Last minute Christmas gift ideas!

Cookie In A Jar.

What a brilliant idea! An economical gift that not only looks great, is fun to do too. But why have I never heard of this phenomenon before?

After having a look around good 'ol Google, I have found many excellent versions of the 'cookie in a jar'.

Don't these look just divine!

 The last is not Christmas related, but I thought looked great. A good idea for a 'girls night in' party or similiar.
I have a few last minute gifts to do, so making these would be perfect.  I'll post my attempt at giving it a go in the next day or so.
Stay tuned.....
