Crochet Projects January Update

Towards the end of last year I learned how to crochet. It was something that I had really wanted to do for some time but just didn’t get around to it. You know what it’s like with work and the kids, things often tend to get put on the back burner don’t they?! My first make was some oak leaves and pumpkins for my autumnal bunting and some colourful scarves for the boys. I then went on to make my… View Post

Poundland Upcycle Christmas Craft

Christmas time is here and we have been busy doing lots of fun Christmas crafts like this cute Scene in a jar craft and our Christmas Eve box craft. Today’s craft is a bit of an upcycle project. We had some little tinsel trees from Poundland last year, but I wasn’t all that keen on them so they went back up in the loft.

I think Christmas Eve boxes are a fun way to keep the kids entertained as their excitement heightens for the big day! We… View Post

My Autumnal Crocheted Bunting

I’ve always wanted to crochet. I look at some of the amazing things that my friends have created and I used to think ‘I wish I could do something like that’. I really enjoy crafts but crochet is something that I had never had a go at before up until the past few months. Now I can’t get enough of the hooks! I have kitted out the family with crocheted hats and scarves and I have finally finished off my… View Post
