365 Grateful: Hello! Hooray! 2015

Have you heard of  365 Grateful? If not, don’t worry – it’s new to me too! I first read about it in Flow Magazine (international edition, issue 7) last month, and was really inspired by the story of how Hailey Bartholomew set up this project. She took polaroid photos every day in order to appreciate the little things in life that often pass you by, and she was amazed by the power of gratitude for these every day things. Since then, lots of people have taken up the 365 grateful challenge, and I have decided to do it in 2015!

A handmade Christmas

Christmas is a pretty busy time for crafters, and this year has been no exception for me! I planned my Christmas gift makes for a few months, and now that the gifts have been given I can share them with you! I had to be quite clever with my planning this year – with all the kitchen work going on, I had to get anything that required making on my machine done first because I wasn’t sure if I’d have space for my machine once the living room had been re-jiggled.

Kitchen progress: Part 1

Our kitchen rebuild is in full swing and now that the builders have finished for the Christmas holidays, I thought that it was about time that I shared a little update with you! At first, it didn’t look like a lot was happening from the front – the roof and garage door were still there and so anyone walking past was probably wondering what all the noise was about! That’s because inside, the floor was being dug up in preparation for new foundations. This was quite a noisy process, so we were glad to be mostly out at work when this was happening… Read More

Christmas bauble garland

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and although we’re not having a tree this year (on account of our fridge freezer and washing machine camping out in our living room) we have put up a couple of things to try and bit a little bit festive! I had my eye on these gorgeous mini glass baubles from Paperchase for a few weeks, and then came up with the idea for this little garland. The baubles are 2cm in diameter, so are just perfect for this project! It’s SO easy to make and you can have it made and on display in about 20 minutes. Yay!
