Dreaming on a Star at the Markets!

Hi everyone. Dreaming on a Star has been at the markets!

So far I’ve done four markets – three at Strandhill People’s Market and one at the Sligo Flea Market in the Model Art Gallery.

I love interacting with customers. Hearing someone compliment your work or making someone smile is a special thing.  I love making that connection – it’s both a joy and a privilege.

Printable Recipe Cards and Organisation!

Hi everyone. I’ve been organising my life recently! Maybe it’s the start of a New Year, but I want to streamline my life! I’ve been collecting recipes for years – torn out of magazines, scribbled down from TV programmes, tips and recipes from friends and lots of recipe books. The problem is they’re on scraps of paper, here and there.

I’m a fussy fusspot. I’ve been searching for the perfect book to house my recipes. I couldn’t find anything I liked, so I went for a plain hardback book from Paperchase – that way I could customize it with my own designs!

Recipe Book

I haven’t finished designing the cover. I made a little typographic doodle and cut it out and stuck it on the cover. I will probably change it. My recipe book is a work in progress, because I am only storing recipes that have been tried out and I actually like. So it will be a while until the book is filled. Read more…

New Dreaming on a Star Stationery!

On 01, Sep 2013 | No Comments | In crafts, etsy, my work, shop, stationery | By Tina

Hi everyone. As you may know, one of my dreams is to have my own stationery range. I have my own Printables shop on Etsy, where I sell some printable notelets (amongst other things).

However, last week I made little notelets boxes for these notelets, and it really started to feel like proper stationery!

Project Life Journal Cards

On 10, Aug 2013 | One Comment | In crafts, etsy, inspiration, journal cards, my work | By Tina

Hi everyone. Today I’d like to talk about Journal Cards and Project Life.

Recording your memories by journalling isn’t new and neither is keeping photo albums. You can also use scrapbooking papers to personalise your photo layouts. However, to get everything looking right and the way you want takes some time.

Becky Higgins came up with an idea to simplify all this. She calls it Project Life.
