Craft Tutorial: Make Your Own Tiny Bunting!

Craft Tutorial: Make Your Own Tiny Bunting!

After reading my bookshelf tour last year, a few people pointed out how cute my tiny bunting was. I said I’d make a tutorial of how to make it and months later, I’m finally doing that! WOOOO! This tiny bunting is great for bookshelves, window ledges, or anywhere you want tiny decorations that cost almost nothing to make.

This tiny bunting tutorial is great for bookshelves, window ledges, or anywhere you want tiny decorations that cost almost nothing to make!

There are two different methods in this tutorial: one for the bunting you see above, and another for one EVEN MORE TINY. It depends how tiny you want it, I guess! Let’s go!

My Book Jar!

My Book Jar!

A few days ago I made a book jar; essentially a book lottery. Why not make your own?

A few days ago I said on Twitter that I made a book jar. It’s essentially a jar containing pieces of paper with the name of every book I own – both physical books and Kindle books – and I’m going to use it like a lucky dip. When I’m not sure what I want to read next, I’ll pick one from the jar and it’s like a LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT that I should read that book (not really). A lot of people replied to my tweet and said they were excited by it and they want to make their own, which I was over the moon about! So, your wish is my command – here is how I made my book jar!

My Bullet Journal

My Bullet Journal

bullet journal

For a while now I’ve been trying to find the best way to stay organised. Being in my final year of university, there are so many things to think about. Uni work (both written and practical), events, socialising, money, keeping the house tidy, what I want to do when I graduate, as well as my goals – both short-term and long-term. It all adds up and ends up clogging my brain with so much information that I never want to get anything done.

I’ve tried fancy planners and simple notebooks. The fancy planner is good for when I want to get REALLY creative, but I tend to use it more as a creative journal of my week rather than something I can keep with me as a organisation tool. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I find simple notebooks to be too simple. I realised I needed something that I can be a little creative and imaginative with, but also keep functional and simple rather than being overwhelmed with colour and stickers. The bullet journal does just that. It’s perfect! Read on to find out a bit more about what a bullet journal is, and how I use mine.
