terrarium greeting cards

We don’t really suffer a lack of greenery out here on the west coast. The colour green (as well as the colour grey, numerous shades of it in fact, I’m sad to say) is generally to be found in great abundance out here. The trick is more to keep things from growing than anything else – those who follow […]


bunny plush with zippered pocket

This was one of those weeks where the project I’d intended to write a tutorial for just wasn’t working out. I mean, it was working generally, but slowly and with tweaks needed, and I decided that I’d rather come up with an entirely new idea at the 11th hour and begin its tutorial-making process from scratch […]

cherry blossom thank you cards

I’ve been trying for ages to craft a decent representation of cherry blossoms, since they’re one of my very favourite things.
