Hello, shop!

*Waves sheepishly* September. Has it really been THAT long since I last blogged? Apparently so... sorry about that. It sort of makes sense though, as September would have been around the time that things really started kicking off here at SLS Creative. Oh how they...

I’m a craft-a-holic… does that mean I can get my sharps box on prescription now?

I discovered recently that I really shouldn't be putting my used scalpel blades in the bin, no matter how many layers of card they are wrapped in or whether or not I then wrap them in twenty layers of foil, they're sharp little blighters and some poor unsuspecting bin...

How to cheat at drawing and succeed.

Ok, so the title was misleading. I've spent the best part of the last 15 years trying to cheat at drawing. Anyone that knows me will testify, my drawing STUNK. Mainly because of my lack of patience, partly because my hand just seemed to do whatever the heck it fancied...

Shhhh. Free Logo Design. (Yep. I know, right?!)

I'm feeling festive, I'm also feeling a bit snuffly and like I've been run over by a bus, but I'm going to focus on the festive feels here. I've also been feeling a wee bit nostalgic for the last year (already, god help me NYE!) and how AWESOME it's been. You lovely...

New books? Yes please!
