Sponsor Highlight - May

Hi, have you had a chance to meet my sponsors and pals this month? Well now is your chance!

Happy Kathy

Sooo...this is just me!!xexe

Hi! I'm Agnes! I'm a redhead student of Business English. I love sewing, scrapbooking, photography, painting, drawing, nature, books, films and video games! I don't really like to write about myself. If you want to know me better, visit me blog - it's the best reflection of me :)


One Sheepish Girl
My name is Meredith and I am a shy college student from Texas. I taught myself to knit about two years ago at a time when I was feeling lost and in desperate need of creativity in my life. From the very first stitch, I fell head over heels for knitting. Along the way, I've also taught myself crochet and opened up a shop on Etsy. My blog is where I share my love for these crafts, my inspirations, and occasional moments of stress as I make my way through college. Sometimes it is difficult for me to feel brave, but nothing has given me more confidence than finding something I love and chasing after it with all I have. Along this journey, I am finally starting to love the things that make me different.  


Sunny Sweet Pea
Hey I'm Jenny. I'm 26 years old and live in the UK. I'm a Welsh girl living in Norwich, England. Sunny Sweet Pea is my personal blog that I've been writing for just over two years. I basically write about my every day life - the movies I watch, the places I see, the books I read, the things I make, you get the picture. I love to read comments, reply to emails and read lots of lovely new blogs so be sure to say hi!

Peppermint Vintage

Hi! I'm Hilary. I've been thrifting and creating since middle school. I opened Peppermint Vintage in 2005 while earning a degree in merchandising. I sell vintage, vintage reconstructions, and handmade items for you and your home. I run Peppermint Vintage out of my home in North Texas and hope to one day open a physical location. I live with my boyfriend Wes and our two silly kitties, Minnie & Felix. Most of my free time is spent at the thrift store, listening to local music, and eating Tex Mex with Wes.

I am a screen printer and have a recent love for hand embroidery. Besides textiles I love photography, the colour green and I have a mad love for coffee! My blog is my virtual sketchbook where I compile inspiration and what I'm working on. Hope to see you there!

Jess Van Den
Hello lovely people! I'm Jess, an Aussie creative entrepreneur. I've tried and failed to narrow it down more than that, because I'm a blogger, maker, teacher, zine publisher & editor, and much more besides! I've always got a lot going on, what with running a full-time blog, 2 jewellery labels, and a quarterly print zine - *bespoke* - plus an e-course or e-book here or there! Suffice it to say, I never get bored.
P.S. I *love* chatting with other creative folk on twitter, and I especially love submissions to my zine, which is full of stories, interviews, tutorials and other features contributed by the creative community!


Hi, I’m Mercedes over at Fluffyghost. I’m an 18 year old Graphic/Website designer as well as a Freelance Artist born and still living in the UK.
I run a little blog sharing my passions of handmade, craft, art, anime/manga, cats, mini projects, thrifting and tons more!
I’m in love with Japanese Culture, all things Kawaii & of course Food with faces. (I just can’t get enough of it!) As well as being a Sanrio & San-X addict. But I’m sure your find out soon enough.  I daydream far to much as well as always being branded as “weird” from a young child. Maybe I am, but I’m happy with that.
Life is finally starting to take tow and I can’t wait to see where it leads!
