A New Project

Flat Pack Hack Plan

Do you ever feel like your creative ideas are just gonna burst right out of your brain in the form of some crazy kinda full body fire stomping dance? That’s me at the moment. Over the past few months my kid’s nap times have been totally outta sync, or completely non-existent, which has meant lots ....Continue reading….

Giveaway: Dictionary Definition Canister Labels…open internationally!

Canister Label Decal Giveaway

This special giveaway is very close to my heart. About two years ago I published this post and my poor little blog nearly had a heart attack! I had NO IDEA my simple idea would cause such a stir – though I’m so glad it did! Aside from putting a big fat smile on my face, the ....Continue reading….

“Make It Over” and “Get It Made”

Make It Over

I’m really lucky to have had my home and projects featured in some printed magazines. There’s just something so lovely about their tangible nature and it’s always such an honour to see my work amongst the pages. The significance is never lost on me. I feel particularly proud of my latest feature. My very own ....Continue reading….

Year in Review…and gratitude

Year in Review

I wanted to get this post up prior to the new year, though thanks to my glacial-like precipitancy, clearly that never happened (I better be careful or soon I’ll have to start signing my blog posts with an image of a sleeping sloth – yes, that’s right, not just any sloth, a sleeping one). At ....Continue reading….

Plush Rugs Giveaway: $400 Gift Certificate

$400 Rug Giveaway!

You may have noticed that giveaways aren’t exactly common around here.

Once again, I am fortunate to have had a project of mine featured in Reloved Magazine! My DIY Customised Timber Knobs (from waaaay back in 2010 – an oldie but a goldie!) can be found on page 24 of the Autumn 2013 issue. A big thank you to editor Sally FitzGerald for thinking to include ....Continue reading….

No Bake Candy Crumb Cake

No Bake Candy Crumb Cake

I don’t usually post recipes on my blog. Well, actually, that’s not entirely accurate – I have never posted a recipe on my blog! Yet, here I am, posting a recipe that’s devoid of any actual cooking, and is for a cake that’s by no means an actual cake! You’ll all think that perhaps I should ....Continue reading….

The Design Cookbook

The Design Cookbook

A little while ago, I was pleasantly surprised to be contacted by Kelly Edwards, who wanted to include two of my projects in her new publication, The Design Cookbook! My Hacked IKEA Drawers and Baking Canister Labels are both featured in this design guidebook which includes an array of inspirational DIY ‘recipes’. It’s still always a big treat to ....Continue reading….

Hello, Remember Me?

Hello, Remember Me?

My name’s Kristine. Apparently I’m the person who’s supposed to update this here blog on a semi-regular basis. Seems lately I’ve been a little distracted… …in a good way (I wish I could say Charlotte happily posed with her brother though the truth is I had to bribe her with the promise of a pink ....Continue reading….
