March is finally here and after what has been a busy but lovely start to the month I'm definitely moving into springtime mode now!

Early in February I posted about a paper rose I made from Red Ted Art's tutorial here, and a few weeks ago I found another very cute DIY tutorial for some brilliant spider mums, which I want to share with you all today.

I thought it was only fair to do some bird-themed origami for today's crafty post, so I did just that! I used this basic template and design for the two doves I … Continue reading Two Little Doves
Toucans are just one of my favourite species of birds, and as I shared on my 2016; The Happy Moments post back in early January, I tried my hand at a toco toucan in acrylic on a canvas last year, which turned out really well, and you all seemed to like it. However, there are … Continue reading Tropical Toucans
If you were to ask me what my favourite sea creature was, I'd have a hard time answering. I do however have a very special place in my heart for nudibranchs; the colourful, alien and beautiful sea slugs of the ocean, and right now, with the New Year still fresh in my mind, I'm craving … Continue reading Jewels Of The Sea
