Hello! I'm Fern, age 26, crafting addict and proud owner of The Wellington Boot jewellery shop.
I love all things arts and crafts and aim to become competent (at least!) in as many crafts as possible. I also love photography, design, baking, Disney, musicals and travel!
I hope you enjoy my blog and thanks for visiting.

I used this cutting and folding technique back when I was a child in the Brownies so I just had to post it! The disc shapes would be a fun idea for garlands and bookmarks especially, and you can see the instructions here.
This cotton fabric has been painted with hot wax (made by melting wax crayons) and then dyed to produce the cool 'cracked' effect. I think the technique is really impressive and would be great fun to do - and then you can use the resulting fabric to make a one-of-a-kind pillow or bag!
The artistic style and the colours of these landmark monoprints are really attractive, and both the crayon and the watercolour paint techniques would be awesome to use in your own art journalling or travel painting projects.
I have a definite love for purses, coats and all kinds of things made from vintage blankets, and this cute bag is no exception - especially with the bright and chunky stitching along the leather straps.
I would love to buy glass cloches for many home decor projects, but they seem to be so expensive to buy in the UK. If you have the same issue, you could click here and follow the instructions to make a charming cloche from wire instead - for much less money. Be sure to wear gloves though so you don't scratch them with the wire :)
