It’s that time of year, Facebook is full of people’s baking efforts for Macmillan coffee mornings and my house has been no exception. I’ve been planning it for weeks as it’s my son’s first year at school and I don’t want to show him up with terrible baking efforts. (I know baking posts from me…… Continue reading A Naughty Little Something
This weekend has been completely amazing (even with a couple of minor glitches!) It all began with a long journey to North Yorkshire on Friday night after dropping the children off with relatives. We arrived at 8:30pm, and I made the most of the journey by crocheting until it was dark (my role as navigator…… Continue reading Yarndale, Camping and More
After a lovely weekend away I’m back home, with a sack load of tales to tell and goodies to share once I’ve taken photos. For now, though, here’s a photo of the view I had this morning from the campsite. I think you will agree it is stunning, even in the rain. I never tire…… Continue reading I’m Back!
Mr Craft has earned himself some serious husband points today. He’s taking me on holiday this weekend without the kids (I love them dearly but we’ve never been away on our own!) We’re going to North Yorkshire which can only mean one thing. Yarndale! He’s got it all organised in secret, booked a weekend off…… Continue reading Guess Where I’m Going?
This morning when I was awoken by my two year old jumping on me, I checked my phone with bleary eyes to see that the lovely Nicky at The Shimmer Within Her had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award. What a lovely way to start the day, thank you Nicky! I’m supposed to start by sharing…… Continue reading Another Award!
You know when you see something on Pinterest and think ‘that’s a good idea’? Well, that was me a couple of weeks ago. I’d seen polymer clay crochet hook handles and mentioned it to a friend who very kindly gave me some of her polymer clay to play with. I had images of beautiful swirls…… Continue reading Branching Out-Polymer Clay Crochet Hook Handles
What better way to spend a rainy day (which, by the way, was a very welcome break from the slightly too warm weather of late), than exploring something new. A while back my copy of Papercraft Inspirations arrived, along with a free Christmas embossing folder and foil set. Now, I’ve never used foil in craft,…… Continue reading Branching Out-Foil Embossing
A couple of weeks back I found myself a wool winder in a vintage shop. I was so busy celebrating my ‘tracking down a bargain’ skills that I completely and utterly failed to notice that it had no clamp. Yep, it was pretty much useless. After a quick Internet search to see what the clamp…… Continue reading Life is Like a Ball of Yarn (Wool!)
Happy Friday everyone, I’m typing this blog post in the day time in peace as I didn’t get a call for work (apparently all of the teachers are fit and well and don’t need a stand in, it is the first week of term after all!) A couple of weeks ago I shared with you…… Continue reading The Tale of a Tail
This week my little Crafter, William, started school. It’s safe to say that so far all is good and he loves it. He goes in the morning full of beans and comes back out with lots to tell us. He is also a lucky boy who has been invited to three 5th birthday parties, and…… Continue reading My Little Crafter
