To finish this week, I just wanted to let you know that I have finished working on my new bowl for sale in my Etsy shop, here it is, it is made up of 9 pieces simply joined together, it's finished size is nice too: 25 x 25 cms /10 x 10 inches.
The best thing is I will send it already cut and scored! I have even applied the sticky tape!
Available now in my shop!

I don't know about you, sometimes I wake in the night with the most amazing degree of clarity.
This happened to me a couple of nights ago, my passion for paper folding and vibrant colour is on my mind day and it seems night too. I woke in the morning, sketched my idea and several challenging hours later, here it is,
my Kaleidoscope, faceted paper bowl.
it turned out even better than in my dreams!

I am really no expert but I do like randomly finding out what the various tools etc actually do!
To my excitment, these images magically appeared when I layered various pieces of art on top of each other,
The thing I like the most is that they have a distinctly 1960's/70's feel, I think it's the colours!
what do you think?
I think because it's been rainy all week, I have had the sudden urge to create this faceted, 3 D jolly sun. It's probably my easiest to make printable yet, it would look cute next to a babies cot. What a happy face to wake to! because it's a printable, your kids could make it and if at first they don't succeed, you can always print another one!

For me, growing up, Easter was an especially crafty time, my sister and I loved dying eggs and making bunny shaped cards. Our relatives in Germany would send us the cutest little decals to stick onto our brightly coloured eggs. Our only regret was that we got very carried away and ended up with dozens of hard boiled eggs which appeared in our lunch boxes for what seemed like forever!
I have so enjoyed making this little set so I have created my very first tutorial to hopefully show you that it's really not hard to make.When you're cutting, folding gluing paper all day long like I do, it's easy to forget that it can be quite daunting.
The beauty of a printable is that you can do a practice run first! then when you've finished the first set, you'll never look back!
Of course, the instruction sheet, which comes with the files show you exactly where to cut, fold and glue.
