After 10 years of sharing upcycling tutorials, I'm excited to offer some of my own upcycled and original art! If you've been following me for a while, you won't be surprised to see that (almost) all my art involves upcycling books in some way - their covers or their pages. No book folds, but the big round up of DIY book-folding ideas is still around for you.

This year I've been participating in Joanne Hawker's #MarchMeetTheMaker challenge on Instagram. As I write this post, the month is drawing to an end and the challenge is closing in on 453,000 posts!




Valentine's Day is just around the corner and, if you have children in elementary school in US, you might be like us: on the hook to produce 15-20 kid-friendly Valentines for the students in your child's class. And all their teachers. And the coach.... and, and, and. In short, it's either a daunting task to make a "batch" or an expensive shopping trip to buy things that will probably be thrown out.

Oh, and we generally leave it until the last minute because, who doesn't?






Time to announce the winner of the $50 gift code to Stencil Revolution! As always, I used a randomizer to pick the winner and it chose entry #702 - that's Maria G.

Maria, congrats! Expect an email from me to get your shipping details. Thanks to everyone who entered for your interest.


Happy 2019 to all of you! I'm getting this blogging year off to a generous start thanks to the lovely family running Stencil Revolution. One of you lucky refabbers will be receiving $50 to spend on the stencils of your choice from their shop. I've also rounded up some inspiring stencil makeovers for you, with links to the original projects.

Yup - it's a $50 giveaway!
