New plastic canvas designs

As popular as our kits have become, we constantly have to think of new product ideas and designs. Our supporters have come to rely on us for product innovation and inspiration. We cannot let them down!

Our ideas usually start by one of our team being inspired by something they have seen on TV, a magazine, whilst out on a walk in nature or even whilst in conversation with a friend or family member. Our latest concept was inspired by a family member, who was after a particular size and colour clutch bag. She had tried everywhere online and in the local shopping mall, but to no avail. So, she asked us if we knew where she could get one from.

If you can’t find what you want – then make it yourself!

Our design for the clutch bag fitted all of our family members requirements. We are sure it will fit yours as well! The kits, like all of our others, will come with everything you will need to make the clutch bag. We sourced a reliable and sturdy clasp, and just as our photo frames are, will be washable. We have also sourced a colour coordinating liner for the bag, so there is no catching of keys on yarn.

This is our first design for a bag, and we are now busy working on others. Just like our frames, we do not sell anything that we have not made up ourselves and tested for intended use. So keep on watching our website for new designs as they become available.

Christmas is coming …

We’re now less than five months from Christmas, and the majority of retailers are well-advanced in planning how they will handle their busiest time – Are you?

Act like a Pro and make your life as easy as possible by planning well in advance of the festive season. By planning in advance, you avoid the increased pricing especially created for the season, the slower delivery systems due to high volumes, the crowds in the shops, the panic buying because you don’t really know what to buy, and the list goes on…….


Thinking into the future allows you to make sensible choices, and not only lets you buy items online, but ensures that you receive them with plenty of time to spare. It also stops you from over spending, which we can all be tempted to do when in a Superstore or department store, surrounded by gorgeous things.


If you intend on making your gifts this year, you will also need the time to find and buy your supplies and then time to actually make your items. No matter what you are making, you need to leave enough time for any prep work and failures that may occur. e.g. Paint not drying properly, fragile items being accidentally dropped, etc, etc. These things happen and you don’t want them happening when the stores are out of stock of your supplies, and just a few days before Christmas.

Many people end up shopping last-minute because they put off the inevitable. Instead, make a plan with solid goals, dates, and timelines. (For instance, shopping will be done by December 1st. I will put aside 2 evenings, twice a week for 2 weeks to accomplish this task.) Leave some wiggle-room in case something comes up, but don’t keep making

excuses. It can help to have someone who is good about shopping to keep you on track.


With your gifts done and dusted and out of the way, your friends and family will wonder how you did it and how you keep so calm and organized throughout Christmas.


Remember, being prepared is half the victory!


Bye for now!!!!!
