Featured Finds Friday ! # 1

Hi guys,
I've been thinking of having a feature day on CraftLee on a weekly or fortnightly basis.
Friday seems as good a day as any to start so here we are
- my Very First Featured Finds Friday !
(try saying that very fast 10 times after two glasses of wine!).
My very first Featured Find is a consists of 2 sites that you may, or may not, have heard of
- Totally Tutorials & Abakhan

I was super thrilled last week when my Flower Brooch Tutorial featured on the fantastic Totally Tutorials blog. It is SO worth a visit, there are tutorials available for every kind of crafty goodness linking back to sooo many interesting and fun blogs out there. Its SUCH a good idea ! Bloggers can submit their tutorials and if they are selected then they will feature on the site and bring lots of new readers to mooch around your blog ! Its also great place to hang out for an inspirational browse !!

Totally Tutorials Blog

& THATS NOT ALL !! There is also an inspired exchange programme where suppliers are matched up with crafters - the crafty folk get supplies to play with & suppliers get fresh new tutorial featuring their product - WIN! WIN!

So the big news this week is *drumroll please!* I have been selected to receive some FREE STUFF!!!
The supplier is a UK based company called Abakhan , they are suppliers of yarn, fabrics, hobby supplies and homewares. They have a lovely website, click on the picture below to get there!

I am hassling my poor postman daily as I await their parcel with my ribbons !!
Ribbons !!! Yayyy!!!
I'm so excited ! and so nervous
- what if my ribbons are icky colours?
What if I jam my hand in the car door and cant get the tutorial done in time ?
what if I cant come up with something to make ? ....
To that end I've been pinning away till my hears content on pinterest this week - I've even made specific board called 'A Ribbon Runs Through it....'
Why not follow along ?

Here's some of my favourite pins thus far ....
Who am I kidding - I LOVE all my pins !!

Think I may hear the postman ! Thank you for visiting & please do come back soon !

Love Siubhan x x x


  1. How EXCITING for you!!!! I'd be stalking the postmaster too LOL~ I adore ribbon and have seen some great ideas on Pinterest. I tend to gravitate toward ribbon weaving because you can mix-n-match the colors. Heck, if you weave a large enough grid, interface the back of it and make a pouch!

    Have fun!

    1. Hi Cindy ! I KNOW !! Super excited !! I am thinking about something woven, maybe incorporated into a pincushion or larger piece.... I'm dreaming about ribbons ! Off now to find your boards on piterest and follow them !

    It's so great that you decided to make the rounds of everyone who is part of Craftbotic's Facebook Follow fest - I will do that now, too. Wanted to mail you back, but you seem to be a noreply-blogger (because of the google+ thing). Here's a link how you might fix that:
