Just as Melbourne starting to be enveloped by the colder weather , the mercury dropping to the teens, I have been looking for warm, simple and colourful craft ideas to warm my heart and toes.
And I came across this, a simple , affordable craft idea with old jam/sauce bottles ,some crepe/tissue wrapping paper and Mod Podge from Henry Happened
Colourful Jar Candles from Henry Happened
I have already pinned this on my Pinterest profile (http://pinterest.com/rachinoz/) on my craft board to remind me to get to working on this once I have completed my long list of outstanding craft projects.
I hope you have fun making this. Much love..x NOtaHAti@Rachel

It has been awhile since I picked up my felting needles. The downside about not needle felting for a period of time, I find I can loose some of my touch and become more vulnerable to the pricks(ouch!) from sharp needles and any felting fan will tell you , it is not so pleasant when there are 3-4 of them at a time (double ouch!)
So while I was back in KL in March for a friend’s wedding…well actually whenever I am in KL, I have a “must” routine within my first few days of settling back in. I must have my compulsory dose of local food,I must check out what is the latest in Asian cinema at the DVD store and I must go to Kinokuniya bookshop in KLCC where I pore over their incredible range craft and DIY books.
Each time I return to Kinokuniya in KL, it is without fail I will always find at least one or even more craft book which I don’t seem to come across in any of the local (ever decreasing) bookshops in Melbourne:(.
This time I found 2 books, one which is Feltique by Nikola Davidson and Brookelynn Morris
I highly recommend if you are looking for more ideas, techniques, projecs for felting and needle felting. I already have 10 books on felting and consider this another great addition to my ever growing collection.
Their project ideas are fun to make, so fun that I made one last week, needing a break from my not so fun job-hunt activity. Its the Cupcake Chomper…

Yup,that is my little purple Cupcake Chomper which I made and photographed with the teeny tiny cupcakes which I bought for tea(watching my weight!). It is fun to make and took me about 2 hours to complete…the tiny teeth and cupcake in the mouth was a bit of a challenge but worth the effort.
Happy felting…talk soon. xo NOtaHati

Uninhibited is the word which comes to mind whenever I step into my friend’s art studio,Andrew’s dark sense of art plays with your imagination and gives you the freedom to interpret what you think his art says..gently suggesting a story behind each piece of work.

Good morning! I have been meaning to share my latest effort of making this delightful bunny but in combination of last year’s Christmas business and taking a break from everything else except crafting, I forgot!
Anyway, here is my very own New Year bunny who is dressed to the nines right down to a masquerade mask of her own! I had made her with the intention of sharing her just before NYE but I was away! LOL
My variation of Baby Binky Bunny dressed in masquerade ball finery:) (Handmade and image by NotaHati)
This little bunny was inspired by the Baby Binky Bunny pattern which I bought ages ago from Larissa Holland of mmmcrafts.

I am especially pleased with my Binky Bunny because it has been awhile I made something just for me which turned out better than I thought upon completion and it is one of those little things which brings crafting joy!
If you want to make your very own Binky Bunny, you can get a pattern from Larissa’s store
