Banana and Nutella cake

Last weekend, we packed up the remaining items in our old kitchen in preparation for the builders to knock through at some point soon. It’s going to be really dusty, so best to get things out of the way in advance! We decided to do one last bake in our oven, which is incredibly old and has hung on in there for the last 5 years, something which we are very grateful for. We spotted some reduced bananas for 4p each and as we love a bargain decided that a banana cake would be good.  Read More

Fabric covered magazine files

It’s that time of year where I like to get organised for the year, although it is a little more tricky this year given that our house is completely upside down with the building work! But I’m trying to sort things out where I can, and decided that I needed a little bit more storage for my ever-growing collection of craft magazines. I have had this project in mind for a while now and then I spotted this gorgeous fabric by Cloud 9 on sale in John Lewis and I knew that they would be perfect craft storage – and at £7 per metre it was a bargain too!

Catching up with 2014

It has been AGES since I had a good chunk of time to catch up with Project Life! I had stopped at October, which is when we were packing things up and getting ready for our kitchen work to begin, so had a lot to catch up with. Catching up with 2014 was important before I forgot what to include! But I needed to give myself some proper time to do this – I always end up with cards and pages and photos everywhere, so I need time to make a mess and tidy up afterwards!  Read More

Looking back and looking ahead

It’s that time of year when we tend to look back at last year and look ahead to to the new one. I’m never that keen on making resolutions – this is because I very rarely keep them beyond January, and it usually means that I focus on something negative that I think I need to fix! If you were reading my blog this time last year, you may remember that I came up with some crafty plans instead – the main one of these was (apparently) to learn to crochet. Well, I didn’t quite manage that, oops! My other plans were achieved though 🙂 I wanted to make a quilt (I made two) and learn how to make my own stamps (which I did too – yay!).  Read More

Christmas in Maryport

We spent Christmas in Maryport and had such a wonderful time! The weather forecast was pretty terrible and it rained all day on the day we travelled (it was that really fine rain that soaks you through!), and we expected it to be the same for the whole week. But we were actually very lucky, and there were only a couple of showers in the end – yay! I took a few photos round and about and thought I would share a few of my favourites with you. I love the seaside all year round, but there’s just something special about it in winter. We escaped the snow (it very rarely settles here anyway) but it was very cold!  Read More
