We are two sisters, looking to share some of the things we like and the things we like to make.
Popty-ping is the welsh word for microwave- and next to gwdihw (pronounced goody – hoo) which means little owl, it is quite the loveliest word to say in the welsh language… Our mum is welsh, although neither of us has ever lived there, we feel an affinity with the culture. Being baptised with the welsh names Ffion and Nia.
This blog will follow the kitsch, the trashy, the over the top, the bizarre and the just plain endearing things that we come across- a look book of quirks. And we’ll update a “craft diary” too, as we are both fledgling designers who love traditional crafts such as knitting and embroidery. Sticking and Glueing is what we have been doing since we were little, from when we were making pets out of yoghurt pots, inspired of course by Blue Peter. Now we’re on our way to becoming professional stickers and gluers armed with a hot glue gun and a load of lollipop sticks. Nothing much has changed but we’ve decided to keep a track of these crafting endeavors online.
