Over the past year it is safe to say our art and work spaces have been less creative and more storage-unit. Less craft-zone, more war-zone. Work and the lack of, or wrong type of storage, and the adorable tyranny of a puppy have conspired against us (and chewed us in equal measure). Typical challenges for […]
Taking pictures of our articles just got a lot easier. And faster! Thanks to the spiffy light weight light box Ben bought last month. The cube is a soft white foldable material, very useful in small, confined craft spaces (hello! That would be me/us).
They’re at it again. Those crafty mutha’s at Bearwood Tapestry have organised a double barrelled Bearwood Handmade Winter Faire this year, 24th November & 8th December 2012. Two full days of world class crafts and artwork from local crafters filling two rooms at St. Mary’s Church Hall in, where else, Bearwood. And guess who’s going […]
Are you ready for the Holiday Shopping Season to start? Because ready or not, it’s here! I’m almost ready. Just before I sat down to type this I was ticking off the last few boxes on my Get Ready list for Saturdays Creative Craft Fair at St. Martin in the Bullring. Not much left to […]
Last weekend we participated in a very small craft fair at Ophelia Gifts in Kings Heath. Foot traffic was a trickle resulting in very low sales. Just goes to show that advertising and location can make or break an event. Thank goodness I was surrounded by a fantastic, cheerful bunch of stall holders who were […]

In case you missed any of it, here’s a quick catch-up: ♦ Where It All Began Misha talks about the necklace that inspired her to start making button jewellery. ♦ Eight Armfuls of Inspiration Ben writes about octopodes, and why he thinks they’re so cool. ♦ Oh Pixmas […]
This weekend I was determined to make Christmas ornaments using materials already stockpiled in my craft arsenal. Being a woman of action, and because there was nothing to watch on TV, I declared my ornamentary plan of attack and headed upstairs. Leaving my husband nestled safely in his comfy chair heroically saving the world from […]
We’ve decided to make November inspiration month here at UnRuley Articles. In keeping with the theme I wanted to kick things off with a nod to the necklace that started it all for me. On an Autumn day in 2008 my colleague and soon to be BFF, Jane, wore a chunky red button necklace to work. […]
As most of you know, we sell a selection of Articles on Etsy.com. Why Etsy? Because of its reputation as a respected, handmade driven and well presented online shopping experience. We also happen to love a lot of the gorgeous things on offer there. Truth is, UnRuley Articles is a very, very small piece of […]
Have you ever traded something you made for something someone else made? Doesn’t it feel great? I know many people who have, and even more who’ve never considered it. In these turbulent economic times, I think trading our goods for someone else’s is a smart idea. What about if you just gave them away? That […]
