World Oceans Day celebrates our ocean on the 8th June this year, raising awareness for its protection. The ocean is a fundamental part of life on this planet; it’s our lifeblood. The plants depend on it, the animals depend on it, and we depend on it too. In fact, our oceans span across around three-quarters of the planet and generate half of the atmosphere’s oxygen. There’s no wonder that humankind is drawn to taking inspiration from such a beautifully significant part of the world. To join in with celebrations, we’ve created a top 10 list of ocean-themed craft products that you can incorporate into your crafting. Let’s dive right in!
Vintage home decor is at the top of trends at the moment. In fact, it has been for quite some time. But why is it so popular? If you have a Pinterest addiction like us, this will likely be the root of the obsession. We can scroll for hours through an infinite stream of vintage DIY projects, like creating hanging flower vases from old milk bottles and glueing wallpaper samples onto stairs. These ideas are out there – but familiar. They capture your attention, get your imagination going, and make you think “I could do that.” What makes vintage decor so attractive to people is that it is achievable. You can create your own beautiful home decor.
Most of us remember Crush. He was the ridiculously laid back sea turtle that helped Nemo’s father hitch a ride on the East Australian current in Finding Nemo.

That’s right, 23rd May 2017 is World Turtle Day!
