this is my first tutorial published for a while that uses candy wrappers.
these are my two latest tutorials that use plastic bottles, a couple of great projects for recycling.
Wow where did May go?
I can't do any crafting for a couple of days because I have hurt my hand and it has really limited what I can do so I thought it would be a perfect time for a update blog post.
Sooooo what's new? not much really, I got accused of copying someone's tutorial. It was the pop tab keychain coin purse one. She said I had copied her tutorial when in fact I hadn't even seen her channel before. I pride myself on my pop tab creations and it took me ages to work out a pattern for that purse through trial and error and I found it very insulting being accused of that. Like with duct tape wallets there's only so many ways to make them some are bound to be some designs that are similar. Anyway I'm over it now :) on to the next pop tab project!
I've been thinking about what to do with my channel. I would like to start doing a video once a month maybe that's more of a craft blog with updates of crafts I was working on that month. There's one problem with that though, I have no confidence what so ever so being in front of the camera would be a big challenge.
I also am looking to re-open my esty store, I just need to make a few more bits and bobs and I will be ready to photograph and list my stuff :)
Last little thing, Duck Tape Colours UK (the UK branch of The Duck Brand) have started tutorials on YT, their first one being a duct tape rose and on their Facebook page had a thing going where the first 10 people who posted a picture of their duct tape rose gets a goody bag and I was one of them woooooooo so just waiting for it to arrive yay :)
That's all for now
the winners have been picked :)
thank you to everyone who entered :)
Today I came across one of my tutorials from my old channel but it was on a different channel. Someone had downloaded my original video, cut off the first few secs that said it was by retrofaerie and then uploaded it as their own.
Two of my videos were uploaded to that channel. They have been reported so I hope the videos are taken down soon, but what makes people think they can get away with it, it's totally ridiculous.
It's one of my worst quality videos but it was also the first candy wrapper purse tutorial in English on YouTube so it has a lot of views so I'm wondering if that was the reason they chose to copy it.
Hope it doesn't happen again.
Happy crafting :)
Ever find yourself with only one sock? now you can use it to create a cute sock buddy.
One of the simplest plush tutorials that doesn't require a lot of sewing skills, just basic stitches are used :)
Have fun creating your own Sock Buddy!

Here is my easter tutorial showing you how to make an easter egg piñata, change the shape of the piñata and it can be used any time of year :)
I haven't done anything with pop tabs for a while so I decided to make some mini coin purses that you can put on your keys. These are only small as they are only for small change but they are super cute!
I will be doing a tutorials for both designs at some point in the future :)
Here they are ....
this will be the place to find out about what's coming next, what's on our minds and general brainstorming and talking to ourselves so feel free to join in the conversation!
