Crafting For All Ages

As you can probably tell from my latest venture Let’s Do Something Crafty I’m a huge fan of crafting. The fact I enjoy it means it’s the obvious choice of activity when I’m at home with the kids. A lot of the things we do at the moment are for children but as they get older I plan to learn…

Personalised Stamps

Finally Out Of The House

After spending pretty much all of June and half of May in our house due to chicken pox and my operation, it was so nice to finally get out again. I’m sure you might have heard about a little festival that took part last weekend? Well until we had Cherry we went every year without fail so it’s been…
