  1. Hello Claire, hope you’re feeling better now. This hot weather is not good for us migraine people! I love the Craftseller magazine – probably because we are featured in the August issue (page 99 in case anyone already has a copy!). I’m talking about our Fat Fairy Jewellery shop within the Poppito site ( and how easy the site is to use + how helpful Rebecca, who runs, it is!


  2. Oh I need that upcycled footstool!! I’ve been keeping an eye out for crafty magazine but haven’t managed to get a copy yet, must try harder!

  3. Really like the look of this magazine – brilliant photography and the projects look like things I’d actually want to make/wear. Very tempted by the 3 for £5 offer!
