creative crushing – two hellos

two projects making diy hello signs

Clearly I have a thing for words. But from the look of things, it’s not just me. Signs and things that say seem to be a trend that is here to stay. Last week, funnily enough, I came across these two hellos. Maybe that’s not your word, I’m not sure what mine is… but the technique is what had me. The first hello is embroidered in the negative space using splashes of color to reveal the word. Crafted by Australian design student, Fallon Horstmann, who created the design freehand. The second hello is from a great tutorial found on Poppytalk by Rachel from The Crafted Life, which shows step-by-step how to make your own wooden sign. Thank you both for these ways with words.

Burgon and Ball Perfectly Pickled Jar

If you’re anything like me, then you love a good project… and anything to do with organizing, especially in a visually appealing way that probably involves buying something. That is why I love these jars from Burgon and Ball, available in the U.S. here. For starters, they just look amazing. No more sticky labels with messy handwriting – just smooth glass and a fabulous font.

Not only do they look great, but the jar’s very nature begs for a project. As does the fact that we have now moved into the dwindling days of summer – okay I give in, the early days of fall. So it’s the perfect time to come up with things to do inside, that are warm, like canning. You may still have a lot of tomatoes left on the vine – make tomato jam. Or maybe you have, unlike me, already embraced fall and gone apple picking – make apple chutney. Cleaning up the garden? Homegrown herbs.

Not sure how to fill your jars? Try this amazing cookbook. “Make your own bacon, cheese, and marshmallows” – um, awesome! (Stay tuned for my two new favorite cookbooks!)
