Mint Julep Paper

Too pretty! But trying to get this paper here has been a bit tricky - it's either super expensive or not available.

Photos - White Backgrounds

I have finally figured out backgrounds for photos. Finally! The secret to a white background that isn't overly bright? Set it to transparent! It's that easy.

This website is the only one I have tried so far and it's nice and easy to use.

Just listed - nautical vintage dress
Now I just have to find the time to fix all of my photos!

New Thread Card Holders

I use a lot of embroidery thread for my crocheting. I love it because there are so many colours available - if only it was available in longer skeins.

I recently bought a lot of thread card holders and they are so boring! I wanted something pretty and different, but couldn't really find anything, so I decided to make my own :) I just ordered a load of new card stock and it should arrive this week - I can't wait!

Just listed on Etsy - the gorgeous card would make anything pretty!

Coming soon to Etsy!
