We love being art of the Baker Ross Blogger Network and our latest delivery contained loads of basic crafting staples, it was really good to get back to those basics and just enjoy some of the simple pleasures of crafting with the little one.
When the guys at Rust-Oleum got in touch a couple of weeks back to see if I fancied taking part in a bit of a blogger challenge they were running to create a wedding craft the timing couldn’t have been better.
As you all know my sister is getting married next year and I am one of her bridesmaids, so far, as part of my Project Bridesmaid series, I have been focusing on myself and losing some weight so I’ll look good on the day. The time has come, however, to start actually taking care of my real duties. Continue reading How to Make A Wedding Tree – Project Bridesmaid→

I love to craft, really love it, but like many of my hobbies it has been put on the back burner since becoming a mum. Just like reading, looking presentable and using the bathroom by myself.
I’m lucky enough that I get to work with Baker Ross regularly so I’m never out of fun crafts to do with the boy and I also make things for the Hobbycraft blog quite often, every now and then I get asked to things for other companies as well. I relish these opportunities as it means I get to do something I love, but it’s never just for me, which I miss. Continue reading March Crafts→
Have you found Hochanda yet? It’s a TV shopping channel that specialises in crafts, lots and lots of amazing crafts.
You can find them on Sky 663 and FreeSat 817 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and on Freeview 39 from 6am until 9pm. I warn you it’s addictive. The kind of channel you realise you’ve been watching for two hours and you don’t know where the time went, well at least if you love crafts like I do!
I love a good subscription box, they are one of may favourite things. A box full of surprises through your door, what’s not to love? I also love crafting, I enjoy little projects that I can make quickly as I don’t have much time for my own crafting nowadays. Surprise Box Club has combined these two things so I was very excited to get to review a box.
It doesn’t matter how hard I try, sometimes I have to work whilst the little one occupies himself.
The main problem with this is that as soon as I am doing something, he decides that is way more exciting than whatever was holding his attention up until that point, so I have had had to become the master of quick and easy activities that he actually loves.
