We have had the most fun yet with all our new tutorials! They will update your home and save you a fortune at the same time… not to mention all the fun you will have from learning something new! Check out how to make your own home screen printing kit, a cute little terrarium to bring the outdoors in and update your sofa with an awesome moon cushion using photo transfer paper. We also shared a diy that will update your dining room and pass the time on long journeys with our placemat travel games project and show you how to make peanut butter and an awesome jar to go with it. Last but not least, a quick jewelry diy to show you how to make your own collar clips / cardigan clips from clip on earrings and a bracelet. A lot of great stuff, right?!
Can you believe August has already crashed in? That means one thing…. A round up of what we got up to in July of course! Incase you missed any of the good bits (or ruddy brilliant ones should I say!), here is a snippet at what went down at Vivid HQ…
Lots of pretty photos this month with afternoon tea, days in the sun and cocktails in a suitcase! We love to use our camera phones to snap all the things that make us smile. In Scotland we’ve had a really rainy year so these moments need to be documented as proof 😉
We’re really excited about the fabricate exhibition in Edinburgh this month and got the opportunity to share the event on the blog before it opened. Full of some absolutely stunning design from upcoming Scottish makers, we rate this show highly as a must see if you’re in town for the Fringe!
It’s open ’till the 31st of August at Studio One, so make sure you pencil it in 😀
This month we fell in love with the galaxy trend and rocked a sultry and sexy vamp look for our outfit post Style me friday… Dressing up is one of my favorite pass times so making these fashion posts are a lot of fun!
We were really excited to have been featured sellers on Uncovet’s website, an online store dedicated to sharing some of the best new and upcoming designers products. On top of that we even made etsy’s usa homepage with our pencils too – we are so proud to have made it on the front page in the uk and america now 😀 We also did brilliantly at the 2 (!!) markets we traded at this month and we even had time to make plenty of brilliant new products. Crikey! No wonder the time has flown by so fast! We are delighted to have passed someone in the street wearing one of our products too – it’s so great to see our things being loved and worn with such pride! It really makes all the hard work and effort seem so, so worth it!
Finally, before we go, we’d really like to thank everyone who has shared our Mini Fork Pom Pom diy post this month too. This little fellow has been popping up everywhere and it has been amazing 😀 If you’ve shared any of our tutorials on your blog or tumbler etc, please let us know and send us a url – we’d love to be able to thank everyone for all the support they have been giving us!
So, a massive thank you and shout out to:
We hope we haven’t missed anyone out – please let us know if we have and we would love to add you in too. Hooray! Thanks everyone!
Thanks to all our lovely readers too – we hope you’ve enjoyed our July round up and have a lot of fun with all our new projects 😀 Here’s to more brilliant things to come in August!!
