Happy Halloween!

Although it’s not really¬† autumn and our markets are not flooded with pumpkins and shades of orange, nor do we actually celebrate Halloween like they do in the west, I love it as an excuse to dress up in ridiculous costumes. I would love to do this, but alas! face paint is a hard commodity to come by in these parts…


So I’m going as the queen of hearts & david is the Mad hatter. We got the orange wig and a hat- tutorial from . I’ll upload photos if it comes out good.

So! I’ve been planning this super awesome ( I’m hoping) party in three months and I’ll be posting ideas and stuff as I go along. ooOOOoo soo excited.

We’ve got an outdoor do planned, in my modest garden and veranda. one of my biggest worries till now has been bugs and mosquitoes(god I hate them!) Until I stumbled on this tutorial on Design*Sponge that is.


They’re home-made citronella candles that keep bugs at bay. plus I’ve got a bunch of pointless containers that will be happy to have purpose as candle tins.

I’m also making this ultra easy banners to wrap house in. Although I doubt you’ll get those iron sticky thingies, I’m just going to stitch them. Here’s the tutorial on paper n stitch.


Pinhole camera

I made a pinhole camera from a tutorial off photojojo. I made the matchbox one.

I’ll up load some prints when I get to it. I don’t have a car anymore so all these here and there jobs get tougher if you stick to the bus route.
