Craft Blogs are this amazing thing; people (mostly women to be fair) all over the world celebrating the same thing - not just craft, but the whole beautiful art of domesticity. The best blogs share their craft ideas and projects, along with their everyday activities, their favourite new recipes, books, music, all the while championing the delights of domestic traditions.
Alicia Paulson, who has a very popular Craft Blog, Posie Gets Cozy, has just published a new book, Stitched in Time, equally as beautiful and inspiring as her blog. If you love crafting and are looking for some fresh ideas, this gorgeous book is a must. And, if you haven’t yet discovered the world of craft blogs, then Alicia’s home page would be a great place to start.
P.S. If you are already a follower of Craft Blogs, do let me know your favourites!
The book mentioned, Stitched in Time: memory-keeping projects from the creator of Posie Gets Cozy, can be found at Havelock North Library in Adult Non-Fiction 746.4 PAU.
Hi, I’m Elsie.
My colleagues like to call me “Earthy Elsie”, or occasionally when they are really trying to make the point, they go so far as to call me “Earth Mother”. I just laugh – because it’s true that I really do care about the earth, and I am not afraid to declare it to the world.
Did you know that this Saturday 28 March from 8.30pm – 9.30pm is EARTH HOUR?
Earth Hour is a global crusade to take control of the future of our planet. By switching off your lights (and any other unneeded appliances) on Saturday night you will be joining the world-wide campaign to show that you care about our earth’s sustainability.
If you don’t fancy being alone in the dark, there is a celebration of Earth Hour at Hawke’s
Wherever you are on Saturday night, I do so hope that your lights are off.
