Mmmm.. sticky!

He he he. I am right giddy, I am. Over something as silly as tape. Japanese washi masking tape. I've been wanting (no 'need' involved whatsoever, oh the frivolousness of it!) some of it for ages, but I was (im)patiently waiting for the right combination of spare cash, the best price and an occasion to use the tape. Well, I found the right price and I fancy using the tape on Sunday, so 2 out of 3 ain't so bad, huh?

I got it from the UGUiSU shop on Etsy, but there are LOADS of shops that sell this sort of thing. Just do a search for 'japanese masking tape' and be prepared to be overwhelmed!

The little package was rather pretty too, just look at those beautiful stamps. Why don't Royal Mail use nice ones like that? Usually, all you see are those boring solid coloured ones with the Queen...
Love the minicard as well, isn't it lovely?

Look at a picture that doesn't appeal to you at first. Maybe you can still pick out a bunch of colours that work well together. Even if they are not your favourite colours.

Fruity? Like a fine wine? Use magazine photos for colour inspiration. With practice you will get better at pinning down the colours that speak to you.

Purple and happy friends


Looking through magazines, colour is probably the thing that grabs me the most. I have decided to start grabbing the colours and turning them into 5 colour palettes like this. To inspire me. And I am going to post them here to remind me to be inspired.

Maybe you will be inspired too..? :-)

I felt colour

Don't you just love felt? All the lovely colours! I bought these recently, with the excuse that I needed some felt for a phone cosy for Tony. Most of these squares are 4.5", so it wasn't that pricey. Of course, I'm not sure if I can get myself to cut into them. I just want to sit and admire the colours... I got them from Pixie Rose - they've got 72 different colours!

Granny A Day - so far

I don't know if I need to say anything about these pictures?

They sorta speak for themselves, don't they?

There's 20 so far.






So far, these are making me very, very happy. I can't wait to see what the next 20 will look like. I am going to crochet them together with a nice cream colour.
