2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #12

Saturday!!! I’ve been up early because I needed to get the draw for the Porter shrine out of the way in time for the post office. So first things first – the winner has been picked, and the RAPS is on the way to… *drumroll* Congrats, Zee. I hope the letter won’t take forever to…

RA Pocket Shrine 270/? – Armed & Dangerous

Kate and my “5 Item Swap” has gone to round 2. ICYMI, it’s a little creative exchange where we swap (a minimum of) 5 craft items in order to inspire a craft project. Kate has explained it much better than me HERE. We are opening the swap to more crafters, btw, so if you are…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #11

It’s been a good long time, but yesterday I was back volunteering at MoLI for the first time. It was almost strange to be in there without a mask hiding half my face, and speaking to the visitors also felt way more personal. I got such a buzz out of chatting to a young American…

New Picture?!

Let’s go for a seven-day-streak, just to make WP send me another notification… Since I am staying away from Twitter these days, I have to get my Social Media fix on other platforms. So on my daily skulk on IG, I noticed this. I spot a new profile pic. That shoot has definitely resulted in…

New Project for Richard

Our #UkRAineAid Proceeds – Transferred

RA Pocket Shrine 268/? – Father of the Year

Four-day-streak with yet another shrine. But before that another word about the charity sale. First of all: All buyers (up to time of writing) should have received an automated notification from Etsy by now that the items are on their way to them. Both Kate and I have dispatched our items so far. Kate’s tags…

RA Pocket Shrine 267/? – HooRay [And Hooray Indeed]

A huge big thank you to all readers here for their prompt and shopping-happy reaction on yesterday’s charity flash sale. Even without prior notice, orders came pouring in within minutes of publishing my blog post. Kate’s tags and RAngels were hot sellers, with all but one, single tag snapped up last night. A huge massive…

Impromptu Charity Craft Sale for Ukraine

Maybe you have already guessed what I was gearing up to, with two shrines in quick succession… Well, the post title says it all: With the horrible war and the successive refugee crisis going on in Ukraine, I wondered how I could help (beyond my own donation a couple of weeks ago). The obvious answer…
