September/October brings change of season, and fresh starts and frivolity and seriousness too. So for a break from whipup realtime I am introducing a few weeks of guest bloggers to liven up your crafty experience. To bring you something fresh, and hopefully invigorate you to make and do and be and think! Its going to be a fun few weeks so come along for the ride.

Today I want to welcome Jan from Poppytalk – one of my oldest blog buddies and author of my favourite design blog poppytalk – Jan’s aesthetic has a little bit of grunge, lots of handmade and some gorgeous styling. You can find more of Jan’s design aesthetic poppytalk.blogspot.com; poppytalkhandmade.com and twitter.com/poppytalk

Inspiration: Pom Poms Galore!

Hi Whip Up fans! Greetings from Canada! It’s Jan from Poppytalk here, and I just wanted to thank Kathreen for inviting me to post here at one of my favourite crafty blogs, I’m honoured.

Last week I posted about some totally rad pom pom garlands that the talented girls from Honestly WTF crafted up. Ever since, I’ve had pom poms on the brain, thinking when and where and what I can do with them next. So today I bring you a little inspiration of all the possibilities.

Thank you sandi for sending in this LINK

I’ve just discovered a wonderful, easy-to-make, personalized gift idea for the end of the school year! The Floating Ink blog always has terrific art projects, but this one can really be a life-saver at this time of year, when suddenly you have your kids’ teachers to thank for their patience all year long (and for not keeping your child in detention for the time he threw the baseball through her car window).
