whipup roundup

Have been working at home this week – on my day job (magazine layout design) and on my quilting project (book project with Chronicle books) – so have been super busy but surprisingly not too horrible to live with. The key has been menu planning – yes indeed, planning breakfast menus and dinner menus. This not only helps to get shopping organised but manages everyones expectations about who is cooking and what they are getting – hopefully with the whole family having helped in this process we will have a little less dinner fuss (hopefully).

  1. Valentines day … there is a wee bit of fuss happening over valentines day – I am not a showy romantic (and not at all into the commercial side of valentines) so this holiday usually passes us by – but I do enjoy all the pretty things that you clever folk are making … you might like them too … origami fabric pocketsvalentine card bunting heart hangingstoddler messenger bag v day sachet crochet hearts valentines day card set embroidered heart pin felt fridge magnets
  2. Made me smile: celebrate the boy a month of boy related crafts … embroidered pets bookmark
  3. BOOKS: … I recommend … Natural alternatives

  5. Still time for Calendars: 2010 whipup crafty collectible calendar here (sorry no discounts as these are print on demand – but really they are worth it). … and don’t forget to check out our flickr community
  6. … More great tutes + crafty ideas to kickstart your yearfood craft ruffly neck scarf insulin vial cosy … make your own house slipper pattern seed beed rings whale pocket underspace storage jars leafy table runner scrappy eye pillow make a stamp from a photo easy pot holders

Hope the year has started off well – happy crafting!
