Almost everything on my desk is covered with it, and I have even had to resist decorating my computer with it (lucky Macs look so good to start with). One of the aims of this blog is to show how products from the store can be used, so I plan to show lots of uses for various products over time, and I will start today with one of many MT projects.

Paper roll dispenser

Lukes first post. There, finished! Rebecca just told me Im going to have to write a bit more than that if I am to tell you about what we are doing at the moment.
