Well, quite excited about a couple of things today as Brother have released a Windows Installable Version of their Canvas Workspace and have also added a couple of useful extras to that version too.
In recent times, and especially during the All Counties Craft Challenge, I have grown fond of making things with MDF and have been wanting to design some things for a while.
As you may have seen in my recent My First MDF Design – A Brother Scan N Cut Workstation blog post, I have finally got around to it.
In this blog post I look forward to sharing another design with you – this time, a hinged photo frame that is just chock full of spaces to decorate and embellish.
A little bit of an experiment this week.
I have been seeing a fair bit of pebble painting going on around the internet so I thought that I could see what I could do with that concept in conjunction with my CoLiDo 3D Compact printer.
Read on to see how it all turned out.

Occasionally, in this creative life, someone comes along that single-handedly reignites your passion for creativity and inspires you to go out and explore more, without even knowing it.
This week I was able to get a Worldwide Wednesday feature written up about one of those inspirational people.
His name is Rory Walker and he is an amazingly talented illustrator from Bristol who’s style you may already be familiar with as he has provided illustrations for a number of major brands around the world.Read More »
Spring isn’t too far away so I thought that we’d get into some floral Mandalas to set our minds towards the future. Ready?
Welcome to another in the Worldwide Wednesday series of blog posts that seeks out creative talent from around the world and share it with you via probing questions and revealing answers.
Some of you may already be familiar with my guest and some may not. In either case, I was beyond excited when she agreed to take part as I have been an admirer of her work for some time.
Big open spaces for you to try out some colour shading are part of this week’s Mandala Monday.
Time to get the kettle on … yes?
The first of the Scan N Cut Saturday video tutorials of 2018 is here, and it’s pretty cool if I do say so myself.

Ready? Ok, let’s go.Read More »
Hallo you. Just a brief one for this week’s 3D Thursday to let you know that I now have an account over on My Mini Factory where I will be uploading some of my 3D designs for you to make use of.

Hallo you. Been a while since I last did a Worldwide Wednesday blog post so I wanted to try and explore more talent from around the world this year and the first person that I would like to introduce you to is a very talented artist from Cornwall in England.
Her name is Alice Hole, so, if you have your mug/brew ready, let me introduce you to Alice.
