DIY Chalkboard Paint Ideas Chalkboard paint has become all the rage. And it’s uses for creating home decor pieces that you can personalize with the swipe of a piece of chalk have become seemingly endless.

Pillow With Rosette Clusters From Felt Furnishings I haven’t crafted with felt since I was little, but since picking up a copy of Anne Kyrrö Quinn‘s book, Felt Furnishings, I have a whole new universe of respect for the material. Anne was encouraged to revisit felt by her tutor in her final year studying Textile Design at London Metropolitan University, and she hasn’t looked back since.
