An Easter Update

It’s been a few weeks since my last post, and what a busy few weeks they’ve been. Homeschool continued until last Friday, when we broke up for Easter. My approach has changed a little (a lot!) as all children finished school shortly after we did and the childrens’ school posted a timetable out, as well…… Continue reading An Easter Update

My Christmas 2018 Crafting

Merry Christmas everyone, I do hope you are all enjoying this hazy week between Christmas and New Year. It’s one of my favourite parts of Christmas as the wrapping and stress are all done, and we can relax and play with all of the new toys (I do love building Lego models!), visit friends and…… Continue reading My Christmas 2018 Crafting

The Disorganised Parent’s Guide to Birthday Cakes

My biggest ‘baby’ turned 7 yesterday, and that meant a cake was needed. Easy, you might say, go to Asda.

There are so many people who need to be thanked, and who doesn’t love a sweet treat at…… Continue reading Easiest Ever Festive Fudge

The Non Avengers Party

Things have been a little quiet lately for me on the craft and blogging front as I have been preparing for today’s 5th birthday party. For many it’s the stuff of nightmares, a hellish mix of active children, far too much processed sugar and a village hall. It was possibly one of my crazier crazy…… Continue reading The Non Avengers Party

Exploding Toolbox Birthday Card (and a Cheats Birthday Cake!)

Yesterday was Dave’s birthday, so more cardmaking (and baking) was in order. I’d just received my copy of Papercraft Inspirations and was searching (and desperately hoping for) inspiration when I saw that there was a tutorial for an exploding box card on their YouTube channel. I had a quick watch of the video, but didn’t…… Continue reading Exploding Toolbox Birthday Card (and a Cheats Birthday Cake!)
