crafty ideas from office shoot






I never EVER thought I would ever do anything crafty. You see, I'm the girl who had to get a boy to finish my sewing project at school because I was doing such a terrible job. Me and sewing machines just didn't mix... then. NOW, well it all seems a different story, but I still haven't actually used a machine. Just lots of cutting, stitching and fumbling my way through. But somehow I'm really getting into the vibe of making things. It really is much more satisfying than I ever thought possible.

On the office shoot that I styled for the March issue of real living (on sale until Monday, when the next issue comes out) I went crazy in the "Crafty Industrial" space. Hope you like these little ideas that were shot on the day.

One of my favourite things to do is to make things or paint. I'm not very good at it, but at the end I still feel so accomplished! I figure if I keep going soon I'll be a star!

I know what you mean, I was never a sewer, but I bought a machine anyway and am learning slowly...and its so much fun! You should give it a go.

Natasha, the great news is that if you don't like it - you can always paint over it.

Beach Vintage - I haven't quite progressed to a sewing machine yet. But I'm considering it, which is a HUGE step!
