A little while ago, back in February of this year, Josh and I teamed up to design the march issue of our little local what's up kind of leaflet thing called Wasab¡

Wasab¡ - The crafty issue

Being the creative eco friendly type that we are, and wanting to give some free knowledge away as well as entice in some fun up cycling activities, we created an issue about crafting with stuff you've got at home, such as a shirt, or some wood. And turning the said stuff into some cooler stuff that can hang around a bit longer at home, like a pillow cover or some blocks (for the kids or yourself. Or you dog).

It was lots of fun, and even though there were no cat fights, it was good to learn to negotiate around creative ideas and to think as a team. Not how I would have pictured our spending time together without the kids (luckily granny was here!), but agreeable none the less. Josh came up with the concept of putting the whole issue together on one board, then taking a photo of it. The text and photos were printed out then stuck on the board, then we added some bits and pieces to make it look handmade. It was challenging but came out just as we wanted.

We're happy with how it came out, and although I haven't seen anyone sporting a cool pillow cover yet, I'm hoping it's inspired some...
If you're keen to get very own copy of this issue, I'd be delighted to send it. Worldwide. Yes. Leave me a comment or get in touch with me.
