Sometimes Mr Craft asks me to make cards. Luckily he usually has an idea of what he would like, and this occasion was no different.

The mermaid tail is worked from the bottom up…… Continue reading Christmas Has Begun!

This moment of realisation led to me and MrCraft taking a nice family trip to our local shopping outlet. We decided to go fairly early to avoid the queues. Unfortunately…… Continue reading Shoe Shopping Shenanigans
