The Greatest Show on Earth


This is the Olympics of course! I'm writing this as I'm watching all the countries of the world file out into the London Olympic arena...and it's been a brilliant opening ceremony so far!
So I thought I share some Olympic/London themed crafts with you all to celebrate this!

A nice Olympics/Hunger Games cross over for the geeky!

London Bus Cushion - Cuddly Toy Jubilee & London Olympics

 I love that the crafter who made this routemaster bus was inspired by her two year old son recently learnt to say "bus" and is apparently obsessed with them!

 Soap and Olympics?....sure...why the hell not?!

Every Day Roll Out of Bed and Punch that Day in the Throat - Funny Olympic Inspirational Print - Multi Rainbow - 8x10
http://www.etsy.com/shop/hairbrainedschemes?ref=seller_info
 I'm sure the Olympians will be living by this motto during their time here at the Olympics! And its certainly something I could do with as inspiration at the moment what with my depression/head injury etc...I'm gunna "bassai dai" the days from now on!

London Skyline Watercolour Original
http://www.etsy.com/shop/paintthemoment?ref=seller_info
I love the colours and "reflection". Such a nice London skyline painting, one of the better ones I've seen out there!

City Series no.1 - LONDON. Laser-cut.
http://www.etsy.com/shop/julene?ref=seller_info
If you know me, one thing you would know is I have a weakness for paper-cut art and I adore this little piece complete with the well known phrase as it were, you would always hear when using the London tube! 

Whatever your view is on the Olympics and indeed London, I hope you enjoy the Olympics and wish your country good luck where ever you may be from!
