A little bit of good news this week, we have our new flat! (hopefully, fingers crossed, touch wood) It’s been stressful enough. We’re only renting, but with our work schedules and other commitments we just seemed to be one step behind everyone else at all times. With the new flat comes the new office. This is where is gets good. I get to have a space dedicated to the blog. Everything in one place with space and light. Almost makes things too easy…. Anyway, here’s the latest DIY I’ve been working on. It’s another polymer clay based tutorial (I did… Read More
Here is the first of my holiday DIY posts. I’m a big fan of ‘the jumper’ and I’ve had this one for quite some time now. The only problem with it is the bottom which is a bit too snug, rides up and gives me a look I remember from the shell suits of my childhood. Not very flattering… So to combat this problem I’ve come up with zips. Yes not the most original idea, but if it ain’t broke and all that. I love the result and have already worn this jumper more in the past week than I… Read More
At the end of October we're on our way over to the U S of A for a little holiday and I get to spend my birthday in New York… Yes, I'm a lucky girl. Yes, I'm excited. It's been 10 years since I was last there, and I've been pining to go back ever since. We've booked our flight, got our hotel, found loads of places we want to see/eat at/drink cocktails in but I'm lacking one thing; my new winter wardrobe… uh oh. What makes this even more tricky is that after New York we spend a week… Read More
I’ve had this post in the pipeline for a while now. All dressed up with nowhere to go.. my bad. It’s essentially a great spring/summer post, but I’ve missed the boat completely for that! (maybe you southern hemisphere lot will appreciate it!) but for the rest of us, I say forget dark autumn colours. Let the summer fun live on and keep things playful. Here are some of my favourite pastelly stuff from around on the web that do just that.
I’ve had these blue Lapis Lazuli chips for a long time now without knowing what to do with them. When it comes to DIY I hoard everything I can get my hands on, which can sometimes works out for me, but sometimes leaves me with a lot of useless junk. So it always makes me happy when I use up something that has been living with me for some time already. This bracelet is perfect for using beads or chips that have been in your life for a little too long! Instructions: 1. Thread the stone chips on to an eye… Read More
If you’ve found yourself here it’s because you’ve come over (forced redirect by myself…) from my older blog Teahab. I wanted to bring all of my tutorials together in one place and concentrate on making Fall For DIY a great source of information and creativity. So please, take a look around.

I’ve been so looking forward to sharing this project with all of you. After my first venture into polymer clay I realised what a wonderful and versatile material it was. It got my mind ticking over. I wanted to see how far I could take it. Can I transform a cheap and accessible substance into something precious and desirable? I had a ton of ideas, many of which I’m still planning on experimenting (and hopefully will be showing you all) with. If you like the look of this one, here’s how to do it: Materials Polymer clay | Glitter glass |… Read More
Before I began writing this blog I had my first blog Teahab. One of my most popular posts on Teahab was this tutorial, so I thought I’d also show all of our new readers over here as well! What do you think?
