TV Samples for Indigo Blu


I hope you've all enjoyed the early summer we've been experiencing? The hottest two days of the year to date and I needed to get some samples started as Hochanda have asked Kay to do an additional show and as usual that requires samples. It's going to be a full and fun show so if you've nothing spoiling make yourself a cuppa and watch.  There's flowers galore, exceptional quotes and beautiful flutterbies, all delivered just in time for the Summer sunshine. If you're busy you can always watch using rewind online.

I've made a variety of cards, some quick and some more involved. I had planned a number of more detailed projects but due to illness I was unable to complete them in time to get them to Hochanda. I'll probably post them on here instead with details of how they were made.

Anyhow, here's what I've made. For pictures of the design teams samples check out Indigo Blu or Junk Journals and Mindful Mixed Media Art on facebook.

So kick start your Summer of crafting and tune into Indigo Blu on Hochanda at 10am and 2pm.

Thanks for taking the time to read and if you'd like to leave a comment, I will appreciate it.

Creative huggles, Julie xx

Indigo Blu Samples

Good morning all

Just a quick post and a sneak preview of some samples done for Indigo Blu. The lovely Kay will be live on Hochanda today at 11am and again at 3pm. As well as new scrummie colours of luscious powders, she has beautiful new collectors stamps which include 2 lovely background stamps, a must have flutterby and a quirky looking hen. The highlight has to be the new ‘think evil thoughts’ quote stamps. Not so much evil as cheeky - tune in for a giggle and watch the presenter blush! The design team have had a ball thinking of innovative ways to use the stamps.

Click here for more details of what’s to come from Indigo Blu on Hochanda 

So here is my small contribution to the show. Unfortunately, the camera hasn’t picked up the wonderful shimmer of the luscious powders, or the beeswax in the first sample. Hopefully you’ll see more detail on TV.

Please be a gem and leave a comment, good or bad. All feedback is very much appreciated.

Caio for now, xx

Long time...

Hello lovelies

It's been a month since I last posted. Lots has happened since then, snow days and Easter... for me illness and being admitted to hospital.

I planned to do so much, creatively speaking, leading up to Easter but to say it didn't go to plan is an understatement! I managed to make a special snuggle blanket and felt bunny for each of my grandchildren and a felt bunny for a special friend and another for my daughter. I knitted Ava and Archie a super soft snuggle blanket when they were new born and they still take them to bed now. Needless to say they were ready for replacements. 

The bunnies each take a couple of hours to make. Although they are made exactly the same each one seems to have it's own personality! As more people have seen them, the more people want them so I think I may be busy sewing bunnies for a while yet!

Whilst recovering at home this week, the postie delivered me a lovely parcel of yummy stamps and colours from Kay and Alfie at Indigo Blu. I'm hoping I will be feeling a little better in the days to come so I can get back to my craft room and create the ideas buzzing around in my head. The samples are for Hochanda on the 12th April and believe me when I say the stamps are something else and certainly worth watching.

I'll be back soon with my latest creations.

Creative hugs for now -x-
