Tissue BoxCover

I'm not overly emotional
 (well, you only have MY word on that one)

But when I go to the shops
 I don't by one box of tissues,
 I buy six!

 I am actually from loud sneezing, 
allergic rhinitis royalty.

 My tissue use is prolific.

Now while my nose likes to get a littler hyper,
my eyes work perfectly.
So this week I set out to create a tissue box cover
 that would mask the ugly boxes that decorate my bench tops.

I punched out some circles from origami paper

and mod-podged them randomly onto a mdf blank.
Finally, I sealed them with a few coats of Mod-Podge.

It was ridiculously easy, relaxing and I kind of like it-
 it certainly beats the cactus barcode design.

 I hope your nose is kind to you this week :)

Intagraming jammin'

I've been doing it in private for sometime.

But recently I decided to take it public.

Instragraming jammin'

I may have a documenting dependancy!

 Where am I going?
What am I doing?
What was that?

I may never know the answers
 but I am savouring the visual sensations along the way.

So, if you are on the instagram road,
 look me up:

1960's Fashion Print: Creatives Book Club

Once again my Creative Book Club choice
 is a quick read.

Obviously I am not one to tackle the epic...
it may have something to do with my attention span,
but I think I'd rather put it down
 to the fact that I am a visual person.

And this book is all about the visual.

All the same it does have some short sharp paragraphs
giving a brief history, circa and name of the pattern.
Useful, interesting info.

 I love the 60's!
I spent my teenage years being a try hard mod
-embarrassing yes,
 but not as embarrassing as the 80's fashion of the time.

 Yummy colour galore.

Read it if:
  • If you dig the 6o's
  • Fabrics are your thing
  • If you want some inspiration for pattern or colour
  • You have a spare half hour
