Recycled cards

I designed these cards using old atlas pages, Shakespeare textbooks, a French book about music and some offcuts of Japanese Dragonfly Yuzen paper. The cards are made from recycled wheat and rice paper.

Aaaah - Organic Lavender Wheat Packs

Well I've been looking around lately at wheat packs and I thought I should make a few with some really beautiful fabrics. These are approx 38 x 15cm and I have added a couple of decent scoops of organic lavender to each one which I get from an Organic Lavender Farm in Young, NSW. They smell great and I walked around with one around my shoulders earlier to try it out. I tend to get a sore neck when I do crunches at the gym - does that tell me something?

Cuddle Piggy Bed Warmers

I love these cute pigs. They are 35cm tall and filled with wheat and organic lavender. You can put them in the microwave then take them to bed to keep you warm. They come in an appliqued drawstring calico bag. You can put them in the microwave in the bag to keep them clean. Both my kids want to claim these, looks like I'll have to make a couple more..
