Pick a pin Tuesday : Keep calm and carry on – fridge inspiration!

I love the Keep calm and Carry On meme!! Hurrah for British propaganda from 1939.  Of course I have a board for some of my favourites. I’m not literary enough to write (of appreciate) haiku’s, but the simplicity and wit of these posters are right up my alley.

I knew I wanted to have some in my home. But probably won’t look perfect. More like a magazine cut-out on a tween’s bedroom. Cause crafts don’t have to be perfect, as long as you just carry on crafting.

This magnet frame is getting a makeover.

I have a weakness for fridge magnets, and even more so for magnet frames.  I recently rearranged my fridge stash, updated some photos… and this Sasco once my Mom sent me is perfect for the faux gilt frame I had in mind for Keep Calm prints.

I trimmed the inside, photoshopped a google image to within an inch op it’s pixelated life. I was in too much of a hurry to modge podge the paper frame to the magnet, but regular glue stick worked fine.

I love how it turned out! Going to cycle them weekly… maybe daily in the beginning 😉

And yes, those are vinyl stickers on my fridge.

December 2012

I had these up for sale on etsy, but decided to rather share them for free. I’ve given them as Christmas gifts and they seem to be a hit!

I wanted to make bookmarks with  real African. flair, drawing inspiration from townships, villages, metropole, landscapes; places I’ve lived at, people I’ve met. And not a leopard pattern or safari theme in sight. So each month is different, some designs might reflect that month’s international or local theme: like Valentine’s Day or Women’s month.

It’s always sunny during our Christmas season. Scorching really. So happy festive season to you and yours.  Travel safe. Beware the zombies.

Every end of the month I’ll upload the following month’s bookmark calendar.
