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

WIP Wednesday-27th September

Even though it’s still September, it’s getting festive here, and this week’s crafts have mainly revolved around Christmas (or sparkles!) I’m in the middle of completing orders for snowmen baubles, there are only a couple more to make now. They do look like a jolly little crew; it’ll almost be sad to separate them when…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-27th September
