Under the sea pop up card

Hey there, it is Anthony here.

Tonight I have gone off book and created an under the sea pop up card.

Here is the card, and nice deep sea blue.

And Surprise! Here is what is inside:

The fish are on blue string and everything is hand cut out of card stock.

I’d really like to give this one away, so please comment below for the chance to win! Some topic suggestions for comments – what was your favourite part of The Little Mermaid? Have you ever been snorkelling? Or if you’d like please rate the mess I made with this post against my previous posts. Evidence of tonight’s mess here:


Winner will be announced in a few days!




Paper Flowers

Moustache’s are over and it’s on to flowers!

Many thanks to Anthony for doing the final moustache post last night. As soon as he found out it was ‘moustache week’, he started growing his stache with the hope of sharing it on the blog. Not strictly a craft, but a creative adventure nontheless.

But back to the flowers! Do you have a favourite flower? I have a few: poppies, roses, daisies, lilies and iris’s. Flowers make me happy, and it’s always wonderful to be surprised with them (hint hint).

Tonight I made a simple flower card.


Quick and easy to make and not too dissimilar to the design in the book.

Expect to see a lot of knitted flowers this week!


Today I was also honoured with a blogging award by my blogging friend All Night Knits. The award is called ‘The Versatile Blogger’.


I feel really honoured to know that people (who aren’t my friends or family) are reading my blog and enjoying it.

Part of being given this award entails talking about blogs that I enjoy reading and nominating them as well (kind of like a ‘chain’ award?). So here are 15 blogs that I read regularly:

1. The Happy Exchange

2. For the Knit of It

3. Knitting to Stay Sane

4. Feel Good Knitting

5. Knit and Purl Garden

6. Nice and Knit

7. The Blue Brick

8. Thirty Purple Birds

9. Sew Knit Create

10. The Sarah Page

11. Tiny Owl Knits

12. Hundred Dollar Dresser

13. Winter Owls

14. Lottie Knits

15. All She Wants To Do Is Knit


I’m also meant to share 7 things about myself:

1. I’m a Christian (I love Jesus)

2. I’m married to Anthony, and he is the best husband in the world

3. My favourite colour is red. Or blue. I’m not sure.

4. I’m an introvert, but I have a silly side that only a few people get to see.

5. I’m an aunty to 7 children, and I love it.

6. Buying and drinking coffee is one of my favourite things to do. 

7. I was born as a twin (not identical).


Thanks again to All Night Knits for the nomination – I feel very honoured.

For those who are following my blog, I will be drawing the winner for Moustache Wrapper tomorrow night. So if you haven’t commented, now is your chance!

I am so glad it’s the weekend.

I’ve had a good week at work, but I just need a rest!

Tonight I made a lady bug card.



A quick and easy craft for a friday night.

What do you have planned for your weekend?

I want to get my knitting on!

So it’s a good thing that I have a craft day booked for tomorrow with my lovely friends Katie and Alysha. 

We’re each bringing our own craft to do, and will no doubt drink tea and chat a lot!

It may sound a bit ‘nanna-ish’. But what can I say? I’m a young 28 year old woman who’s a nanna at heart. I love to do craft and have naps during the day 😉

Hope your weekend is equally filled with whatever you find most enjoyable in life.
