I was asked this month to be the Guest Pinner for Homemade With Love magazine. I’ve been a bit lazy of late with my own Pinterest boards, mostly re-pinning from those I follow or pinning my own creations. Being asked to pin for someone else has refocused me; what I loved most about Pinterest when I first signed up was discovering new blogs and actively searching for inspiration. I’m really enjoying perusing blogs, magazines and websites for new and exciting craft and home projects. If you would like to see what I have pinned so far, you can see my Guest Pinboard here.
I originally discovered the joys of Washi tape from Pinterest. It comes in all sorts of contemporary prints, patterns and colours and gives everything a modern edge. The tape is very low tack, which makes it very versatile and there are so many different things you can do with it. One of the ideas I like, and have copied the most, is using Washi tape to create photo frames around pictures and postcards. I also use it to tape up notes or pictures above my desk for inspiration.
Mia Fleur, an online homewares boutique, very kindly sent me a set of their lovely vintage pictures. I decided to combine the freshness of the Washi tape with the vintage feel of the pictures to create an alternative wall display.
Thanks again to Mia Fleur for the lovely pictures, which are very reasonably priced for a collection of nine printed on beautiful paper. If you would like some you can buy them here. x
