The Sunday Round Up

7 Feb

I’ve had quite a bit of time at home this week (which makes me a bit nervous as it means no money) but it’s given me some time to get non-creative things done. However once those non-creative things are out of the way, I’ve been able to look at things that help get my creative mind flowing again.

I’ve read about Uppercase on many blogs but never got around to buying a copy until now. I’m so glad I did – amazing interviews, articles and artwork!! But I’m also really sad as both Issue 1 and 2 have sold out!! I’m one of those people who likes to have complete collections and without those two issues I’m stuck. Humph. Anyone out there have a spare copy of either or know where I can get them from? (Thanks in advance!!)

I love the colours in this photo, taken by Rachel over at Smile and Wave of thumb hearts made by her son. It also reminds me that Valentine’s Day is a week away! Which leads me onto the next photo…

I bought these from Something’s Hiding in Here a week ago and they finally arrived yesterday. I was initially going to give one to my boyfriend on Valentine’s Day but they were smaller than I thought they would be (me not reading the size scale) so I thought it’s be cute to give him one early. He likes them – we both appreciate good design and love letterpress stuff. I’m a huge fan of Something’s Hiding in Here too and would like one of their wooden rings when I get some money in my pocket. And sticking with valentine’s themed stuff…

Vivianna over at Polka Dot Robot has been experimenting with TTV effects and one of the results was this wonderful picture of some knitted hearts that were part of the PDR shop update that also happened this week. I did succumb and bought myself a knitting pattern and a coffee cozy, but I know I’m supporting a friend and small business so I don’t mind spending a little!

And here are some random delights that have made my week a lot more colourful and inspiring…

About to be made/melted into cupcake-shaped rainbow crayons!! Heidi over at My Paper Crane has some pretty darn good ideas for party favours and treats for kiddo’s if you’re ever stuck!

The appropriately named Candy Sprinkles sock yarn, available over at Studioloo. One word – YUM!!

These lovely crocheted circles are some of the inspiration for a gift I’m currently making for someone. Which I need to get cracking with, eek! I love the colour combinations.

So that’s the round up for this week! I hope you’ve enjoyed it and have found something that has inspired you. I’ve got an interesting week ahead that I have to prepare for so I might not be blogging as much. Leave some comment love and go visit the people that I’ve linked to in this blog post. They’re all amazing! Hope you’ve had a great weekend and a good week ahead.
