Last week in my WIP Wednesday post I said that I was going to have a busy week. Somehow I still fitted in some of my own crafting around making birthday cakes, a birthday card, Easter baskets for 4 children and an Easter tree.

Welcome to my festive version of WIP Wednesday, I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. This week has some slightly different content to my normal projects. Some are ‘cheats’ as they are also finished, but I can explain why each could still be a work in progress! I’ll start with our offering to…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-27th December

(I say we, but I was fiercely told ‘do it by self’ whenever I attempted to provide helpful suggestions so it is mainly her own…… Continue reading What Happens When…
One week on, just look at that curly green hairdo! I think this new disguise really suits him. Not sure what’s up with the bald one on the right, maybe he’s just biding his time? Next stop-giving him a trim and persuading the kids that cress is a great accompaniment to their beloved boiled eggs.…… Continue reading Supertato Update!
Of a slightly boring Easter holiday morning. Dave was asleep after his night shift, we had already been out loads that week and needed a bit of a chillout session.
