  • About my project supply lists:
    I only use and share products that I genuinely love. The product supply lists that accompany my projects are simply intended to provide a visual overview of what I've used in case you have the same items at home or would like to add them to your own shopping list. I link to several stores in the UK and US and as of July 1, 2017 I am an affiliate member of, Amazon UK, Ellen Hutson, and (as of April 2022) The Greetery - this means that when you click on an affiliate link and go on to make a purchase I will receive a small percentage at no cost to you. Money raised through affiliate links will go straight towards my crafting fund. Finally, please note that any products marked "(r)" are retired and may no longer be available for sale online.

Once and only once in my life I gathered the courage and insanity needed to enter a tattoo parlour. I carefully explained and sketched my design of choice -- something very small in the shape of a star with a series of lines next to it. In that overly serious tone that one can have when one is really too frightened to be herself, I asked if that would be possible.

The artist replied, 'Oh yeah. That's the Rainbow Brite logo.'

And then I left. Quickly.


Love the rainbow brite picture!!

I've just found my 'My little Pony' sticker's very cool!!!


Well that was quite an epiphany Shimelle! :oO No wonder you left... and quickly at that... LOL It's all that subliminal messaging through cartoons, man if you ever watched them back now you would really wonder at what mind they came from! I think my brother and I watched an episode of HeMan not so long ago being repeated, boy... what did we ever like about that show! LOL

I did toy with having something cute a la Betty Boop tattooed somewhere but heck it takes me hours to choose a font for a LO never mind the right font to have tattooed on my posterior for posterity! LOL

Plus I had a phase of considering something with a totally deep meaning - but never found the right symbol - there's still time, but to be honest I've kinda gone off the idea since those cookware adverts with the old lady cooking with her pans and her rather faded tribal arm band... I worry enough about my bingo wings now... never mind when I'm 80.. :oS


I'm having a flashback now, with Rainbow Brite. Thanks.


ooh yes, weren't you the rik rak Queen eh ? very cute :)


Oh Nat, you were very cute - I can tell it's you. I love the Rainbow Brite - I had the wallpaper, toys and Video. I wish some of the shows were still on, I loved The Sooty Show, Dangermouse, Inspector Gadget and George & Mildred. I did see an episode of George & Mildred recently and thought 'oh - it's not really that funny' just like the previous comment about He-man. Maybe we should just remember things as they were instead of hunting them down again.

I've enjoyed looking at and reading all your "When I Grow Up" entries. LOVE the papers and embellies you've used!
