sponsor spotlight : paper play & fabric crafts

emma lamb

Today I want to give a wee shout out to two of my lovely sponsors. If collaged art and all things papery get your creative juices flowing then you need to know more about Stephanie Levy's latest e-course and if your looking for some really cute diy projects then Lovelui has a few I think you will love!

sponsor spotlight : 30 Days of Collage with Stephanie Levy | Emma Lamb

Stephanie Levy's latest e-course is her very popular 30 Days of Collage which starts today and will be the only she will be teaching this year. The course includes twenty step-by-step tutorials showing you how to create your own unique pieces of collage art...


"We'll learn unique surface design techniques, how to make your own patterned papers by hand, and I include an array of prompts and ideas for collecting materials and how to incorporate them into your work."

...as well as exclusive interviews from ten collage artists from around the world and access to the whole creative community in a "supportive and encouraging" private community forum. Hop on over to the 30 Days of Collage page for full details of the course and how to book your place.


sponsor spotlight : scrap-booking printables from Lovelui | Emma Lamb

Last time I talked about Lovelui I showed you Marthes fabulous mustachioed men but today I want to show you a few of her super cute diy projects (she also has a 'printables' section if you're looking for yet more papery goodness).

Pictured above are three of my favourites from the Patterns and Kits section - First is a really beautiful DIY Embroidered Button Project where you can buy variations of the kit (printed fabric panel alone or with buttons blanks) to create these gorgeous buttons yourself. Second is these super sweet thread organisers that comes in printable form for you to make as many as you need. Very handy-dandy! And last but not least are these gorgeous hand stitched Little Fabric Envelopes. It was love at first sight when I spotted these! The PDF pattern is perfect for beginners as it requires very basic stitching but the results are fabulous especially if you have a stash of Liberty fabrics waiting in the wings. A wee bit of Liberty fabric makes everything fabulous!

Happy crafting my blog buddies!
Emma, x

ps - I have some super exciting news and another giveaway lined up for you tomorrow, a wee bit of crochet goodness :)

colour crush : Joules Ruby blooms

emma lamb

colour crush : Joules Ruby blooms | Emma Lamb

Talking of fabrics and beautiful prints I am completely head over heels for my new duvet cover and pillowcases from Joules range of floral bedding. They are just so totally me! All those stunning colours - bright red, hot pink, ochre and mustard with teal greens and blue set against a crisp white background. Oh yeah! I've always had a soft spot for their vintage style, splodgy floral prints and this yummyness is from their Ruby Floral collection.


colour crush : Joules Ruby blooms | Emma Lamb

Yesterday was the first day in weeks we've had lovely sunshine and blue skies over Edinburgh and although I purposefully picked a double duvet cover to use over the summer months I couldn't wait to see how this beauty would look in the sunshine. So yesterday morning while it was bright and beautiful and the sun was streaming through the window I popped it on the bed and stood back to admire these beautiful blooms in all their glory! I can't wait to be waking up to these on bright sunny Sunday mornings, having breakfast in bed and crocheting a couple of hours away amongst this loveliness. The colours are so uplifting and I can't help but smile when I see them. Sheets that totally make me happy!

And do you know what else I am most chuffed about!? How well my little Yvonne cushion cover matches, the colours are almost identical! You'd be forgiven for thinking that I had just crocheted her to match these sheets even though she came of my hook nearly three years ago and the yarns I used were a thifty find, colours that were discontinued ten years ago! Definitely a timeless colour combination for me.

Can't say my wee man is quite so chuffed about the new sheets as I am though. Ain't no way he's getting on the bed with these beauties, don't care how pleading those big brown eyes are. So not happening! It'll happen.

sponsor spotlight : the most fabulous marbles & mustachioed men!

emma lamb

Sorry to all the Tom Selleck, Ned Flanders and Morgan Spurlock fans out there, none of these fabulously mustachioed men are featured in today's post :(

Sorry, but I thought I had best clear that up before I give a wee shout out to two of my lovely blog sponsors!

sponsor spotlight : handmade marbles from Super Maus & Putti | Emma Lamb

Super Maus & Putti : This is a brand new Etsy shop to me and maybe you too? But as soon as I spotted Sophie and Sander's handmade glass marbles I was head over heels, smitten in love! It's totally my vintage glass addiction kicking in, all those fab Murano style patterns and bubbles trapped inside these little balls of fabulousness. Oh how I wish I could have played with these as a wee girl, so much prettier than the regular ones my brother always had! Sophie and Sander also create lots of other glass loveliness including pendants if you would prefer to wear one around your neck instead of throwing it across the ground!


sponsor spotlight : mr bruce and mr larry, handmade ottomans by Lovelui | Emma Lamb

Lovelui : Here they are, the fabulous mustachioed men Mr. Bruce and Mr. Larry! Aren't they just adorable!? Perfect for any boy or girls room these two ottomans are handmade in Australia by Marthes in the softest quilted cotton making them a comfy place to sit and plan their next cheeky adventure. I am sure Mr. Bruce and Mr. Larry with have a few ideas of their own when it comes to cheeky adventures, don't you!? Who is your favourite? I'm thinking Mr. Bruce, his moustache is quite impressive!


If you are looking for sponsorship opportunities in April I have lots of options available including the 'featured sponsor' slot which is currently more prominent as it appears above the fold. Check out all the details on my sponsorship page and do drop me a note if you have any questions. Thank you!

jewellery box : spring picks from Uncommon Goods

emma lamb

Besides the obvious yarn shopping, chocolate wishing and pinning the other way I find myself procrastinating the hours away in any given day is by endlessly browsing for beautiful handmade jewellery. OMG, there is so much out there! So many incredible artists creating the most uniquely beautiful baubles to adorn our ears, necks, wrists and fingers. Necklaces are by far my favourite and Uncommon Goods represents some fabulous artists in their handmade jewellery collection, these are my top picks...

Lotus on Wire Necklace by Ronni Capos at Uncommon Goods | Emma Lamb
Lotus on Wire Necklace by Ronni Kappos : OMG, I love this necklace sooooo much! Pre WWII vintage glass beads from Germany, stunning colour palette and the iconic lotus design is no longer restricted to kitchen enamelware. I love the thirties Art Deco vibe and can picture this adorning the necks of all those beautiful Gatsby ladies! If you love this necklace as much as I so be sure to check out Ronni Kappos' full collection especially the Lotus Earrings and Grain Necklace.


Silver Spoon Handcut Necklace by Moniek Van Zyl and Marlette Strauss at Uncommon Goods | Emma Lamb
Silver Spoon Handcut Necklace by Moniek Van Zyl and Marlette Strauss : How wonderfully whimsical and uniquely beautiful is this upcycled spoon necklace!? I love to see such clever upcycling ideas used in handmade jewellery and this is such a great example. If you look closely you will be able to see that the adorable wee kite is linked on chains so it will move with you and look as though it is swaying in the wind. Such a great detail!


Large Faceted Pendant by Julie Moon at Uncommon Goods | Emma Lamb
Large Faceted Pendant by Julie Moon : I adore the burst of candy colours in this geometric ceramic pendant, it's just so much fun and absolutely perfect for the coming spring. It would work so well with jeans and a plain white shirt and cardigan combo, you know that clean casual look with a tiny pop of colour? Julie Moon also has earrings and a similar smaller pendant in her collection and the Prism Pendant which would work just as well in place of this Faceted Pendant!


Copper Rays Necklace by Susan Harbourt at Uncommon Goods | Emma Lamb
Copper Rays Necklace by Susan Harbourt : Last but by no means least this beautiful and understated copper necklace, yet another stunning example of upcycling at it's best. Susan Harbourt works with reclaimed copper and silver and was originally inspired by the aged copper wiring removed from the walls of her Edwardian Era house which she wove into her very first bracelet. As we know copper is a huge trend for interiors right now and it has long been a favourite of jewellery designers but it is so good to see such a fresh take on this material in the simple design of this necklace. Love it!


As I mentioned, these are just a few of my favourites from Uncommon Goods, but here is so much more in the way of unique jewellery to discover over there. I did say I can lose hours browsing this handmade goodness didn't I!?

One thing I really love about Uncommon Goods is that they are keen to support jewellery artists and designers and are always looking to represent new talent. Each month they run Jewelry Design Challenge where you are free to submit your own work, the winner receives $1000 plus the opportunity to work with Uncommon Goods and the runners up will receive a supportive critique from the judges as well as helpful tips for growing your business from the marketing team. How fabulous is that!? The challenge is open to all US residents over 18 and accepts all kinds of design styles just so long as they are safe and animal friendly, "so no lead, leather, feathers, or pearls", what have you got to lose!? Full details here. Go, go, go!
