Happy weekend + links

 
I know I'm not alone in enjoying our recent sunny good fortune! After all the rain, I hope you're not complaining that it's too hot...

*Love these felt feathers
*I'm saving to go on an ABC charity shop tour!
*I want to make this rhubarb and rosewater syrup {spotted on Pinterest}
*What do you think of this MT tape collaboration with Uniqlo? {love the concept, but not quite my style}
*Cool portrait!
*Love this house {and mine really resembles Alex's last photo....}

A few days ago I decided to organise a Papermash shopping/craft evening on 21st June, so if you're near Clapham in SW London and fancy coming along, keep it free! Admittedly, I regretted embarking on this project almost immediately after I gave it the go-ahead, especially as I'm back to working full-time, and it is in less than a month... I've got a fun screen-printing activity lined up, and am on the lookout for some helpers; people with any of these skills;  hosting a washi tape craft table / baking / floristry / photography / styling / general enthusiasm! - if you'd like to volunteer in return for some free publicity and stationery, please get in touch. More to follow...

Hi Lynne, I'd love to help out with your craft evening if you still need helpers that is? My email is lottsandlots@gmail.com (my laptop is doing strange things so I can't email directly)

ohh, thank you for including a link to my porrait, I;m so glad that you like it :)

I love the idea of a charity shop tour! I think the most we've managed in a day is about 10 but 28 is amazing!

Hi Lynne,
Your event sounds lovely - count me in! I'm not sure I can offer any of the skills on your list but if you just need an 'odd job' person on the night to lend an extra pair of hands, I'd be happy to oblige.

A Papermash evening sounds wonderful! I'll be there! Alas, I'm not particularly skilled in any of those areas but as others have said, if you need any general helpers I'd be more than happy to pitch in! Drop me a line if you think I could be of use: laura@caughtbydesign.com

Thanks for linking to my post about the MT Tape / Uniqlo collaboration, Lynne!

Will be dreaming about those dates forevermore; they look so good.

Those dates look so good! I really like the look of the MT Tape collab - the clothes aren't my style, but washi is a concept that translates really well. And the free roll of tape is a cute incentive.
