After my efforts at trailing vines across a plain brick wall in our backyard failed, I am seriously considering this great idea for moss grafitti, maybe something along the lines of "Love, Laugh and Play".
It was this image that initally caught my attention on Pinterest...
And if you follow me on facebook, you will know it had me slightly confused. Intrigued I followed the links and came across the website of Connor Clark, a scottish illustrator, for which there is very little information available on the web. All I could find was this somewhat illusive interview by Underspray in 2006.
Anyway - his illustrations really touched a cord with me - "some" of my favourites below.
This week I have been working on a custom order for my oldest friends engagement party coming up next week. Each washi Peg It Up is hand stamped with their names and the date of the proposal on the back, and will be used to display photos at the party.
I will try and get some shots of them in use to share with you soon.
(Self promotion plug: custom orders are always welcome at another donkey design - just email me at another.donkey.design@gmaildotcom with any questions!).
Head over to Our Creative Spaces to check out some more great projects this week or to play along
Love love love this Akanbe Folding Basket which converts to a rug - this would look so perfect in my living room as a place to store my little mans toys which inevitable get tipped out each day. Also great for a trip to the park, storing magazines, anything really!
Well I have had a bit of a break with the "My Creative Space" over the last few months, I have been playing with some things in the background, but nothing I have actually had a chance to photograph and write about. So when I had a baby shower coming up and got my hands on "Simple Sewing for Baby" by Lotta Jansdotter, I whipped up a few little projects to add that handmade touch to our present.
A Baby Giraffe Rattle (minus the rattle as i couldn't quite work that one out)
A Taggy Blanket.
As the book suggests, this is simple sewing, that even an amateur like me can handle!
This great idea comes courtesy of A Little Hut. Simply take one Ikea Tolsby Frame (currently available from ikea for only $1.99 for 2- Bargain!), insert a plain white card preferably with some decoration, find yourself a white board marker - and voila - you have a super sweet double sided "to do" list for your desk. Would look great as a reminder board on the kitchen bench too!
Today I am starting a new reguar blogging post - my "yes please, thank you". These will be quick posts of things I find that I would love. I have been posting these as posts on my facebook page, but as I don't want anyone to miss out - thought i would start sharing them with my bloggy exclusive readers to.
My tendancy would be to take a cupboard and fill it with as much shelving as possible, which I would then fill with junk i don't need to keep - but this adorable kiddie closet, via young house love - has made me rethink this philosophy.
