Shape Collage

I've rather taken to Shape Collage, a free upgradeable application that allows you to turn your photos into a collage of any shape in minutes (well seconds actually). Check it out!

Pound Land Presents

A brilliant gift on a budget. There is generally a good selection of cookie cutters, like this ginger bread family. To make the present look a little shabby chic, remove from packaging, tie cutters with a piece of ribbon and add a suitably themed label. Hey Presto, looks like you bought from a craft fair at a chunky price. Shhh

Tea Painting

I've been out of blog world circulation for a while as I have been busy organising my sister's hen party!!! Fun and very creative (been attempting to come up with ways I could add the photos to the genre of the blog). But anyway when thinking of some thank you cards for people who helped saw this wonderful idea at Creature Comforts blog.

Think this would be a fabulous idea for mothers day particularly for children with visual impairment. Obviously you could use bigger cups with no design. You could even enclose a tea bag in envelope.
