MADS 2014 Finalist!

Last year I can remember how surprised I was to see my name on the list of MAD Blog Award finalists. I had to re-check it about five times just to make sure it was really me!

I was so gutted not to be able to make the awards night but J was still breastfeeding a lot so I couldn’t have left him, we thought about travelling up as a family and Mr C staying in the room with the kids but when it came to it I decided that the most sensible thing to do was to just stay at home. I was so jealous on the day though, especially as Dr Ranj was hosting (I mean who doesn’t love Dr Ranj?!).

Of course I dreamt of making it to the finals again this year but I honestly didn’t think I would so when I discovered my name on the list again I was over the moon! Especially as I am in the craft category, one which I never thought I would make it into!

I’ve developed suchΒ a love of crafting over the last year, so much so that I went and set up an entire new site dedicated to kid’s crafts!
