Homemade Pop Tart Recipe Roundup

We are HUGE fans of pop tarts here at Two Cheeky Monkeys HQ, but we don't get them often because they're not particularly nutritious.  So today I am sharing a roundup of DIY pop tart recipes in a range of flavours and difficulties, and there's even a vegan recipe for those of you who swing that way!  Making them yourself means that you know all the ingredients in those tarts and you could even try and make them a little healthier.  Enjoy!

Polymer Clay Creations For Kids: Tutorial Roundup

As school holidays loom for most Australian states, I thought I'd put together a roundup of polymer clay tutorials for entertaining kids (and any visiting friends).  They're all easy and can even be managed by preschoolers with some adult help - enjoy!

Reader, I married him

Hands up who read the post title and thought, "What? Who got married???"  The title is in reference to one of the famous quotes from Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, which I was recently commissioned to turn into a bracelet for a customer.  I don't think my customer was getting married either, but she told me that she loved the story Jane Eyre and that this was her favourite quote from the novel.

I had a lot of fun playing around with different fonts for my customer on this one, and am loving this bracelet so much that I think I'm going to add it as a regular item in my store.  What do you think?  Do you love it or do you have another quote in mind?

Mystery Grab Packs

Hands up those of you who always loved "lucky dip" stalls at fetes and markets when you were a kid!  Today I have some exciting news for those of you who love surprises and mysteries - I am adding mystery grab packs to Domum Vindemia and Two Cheeky Monkeys.

These packs will feature a random mix of literature- and music-themed pretties at 25-30% less than retail value.  Every pack is different, and you won't know what you will receive until your package arrives, but I guarantee that every item is lovingly made by me and of top quality!

These mystery packs are great for surprising that literature buff friend, spoiling yourself, or even for stocking up on a range of goodies to use as last mintue gifts!  At the moment, I have only set up a listing for mystery packs of Domum Vindemia pretties, but a Two Cheeky Monkeys one will be in-store later this week!  Which set would you go for???

Psst!  I have some exciting news to share!  Some of you may already know about and be big fans of monthly subscription boxes.  For those not in the know, various companies have subscriptions available to monthly or bi-monthly boxes of beautiful goodies.  These can be commercial items, foodie items, handmade creations, or a mix of the above.

The bunting train continues

You may have noticed over the last few months that I have been regularly sharing my latest storybook bunting creations.  I am so thankful to you all for how much you have been loving my book buntings, with buntings almost literally flying out the door some weeks!

This week's latest additions to the bunting range are two old favourites, Peter Pan and Scuffy the Tugboat.  Both of these stories are old classics and popular with both boys and girls, so I have been struggling a little to keep them in stock.  These two are waiting to be added to the store, which will happen over the next day or two, but if you want to claim one for yourself, send me a message and I will reserve it for you!  Which one do you prefer, Scuffy or Peter Pan?
