Finally Friday

Finally it's Friday, I've only been in work 3 days this week but it has really dragged! Hope you've all had a good week?

Yesterday I discovered Toffee magazine , whilst reading Twinkie Chan's blog. Its a PDF Indie craft magazine from Australia and looked awesome, so I bought a copy for the equivalent of £1.87 (excellent price) and downloaded it to the ipad for a good read on the sofa!

It comes with a craft section for printout (this issue had craft papers and projects to use them in), as well as other tutorials on different indie crafts, interviews and features. I really enjoyed it, especially the eco friendly projects and suggestions, it is definitely a turning point in modern crafts. The interviews were also inspiring from people who have turned their crafts into a business and how. Check it out people!

In other news, Mr and I are off to London for a couple of nights next week and I'm really looking forward to it. On the agenda is:

A visit to All the Fun of the Fair craft shop in Soho.

Coffee at this cool looking place: Prufrock Cafe, so steampunk, I might die of delight!

A visit to the Tate Modern, I love the surrealist exhibit there!

An evening of Ghost Stories at the Duke of York theatre. I love scary stuff!!

Possibly a visit to Camden, a toy museum and the National Gallery

And whatever else takes our fancy! But can we squeeze it all into two days? We'll see. I will try to take as many pics as possible of any cool stuff we find and inspiration!
P.S. I just finished sewing two slices of Arctic roll last night, and am so pleased with the way it turned out, will post pics over wkend to show you!
oh, nearly forgot, I'm going to start putting the odd tutorial up on here for some felt foods and stuff, anything in particular you'd like to see?
ok, I really am going now,
