Do you have a list of things that you’d like to make? I have one that’s as long as my arm! As well as Pinterest boards full of things that I might get around to doing and a huge stack of books full of beautiful projects that I’d like to complete one day. Early one morning when I was up with Little One (and the birds), I got thinking about this. I do my best thinking then…and in the bath! 🙂 Anyway, I often see things and want to make them but never get around to it. Or I pin things for later, but never look through my boards when it comes to deciding what I want to make next. At the time of discovering that particular project I do really want to make it but then the next thing comes along and I forget about the really inspirational thing that I’ve seen already. So I wanted a way of recording specific things that I very much want to do. That’s where future creative projects come in! Read More
Well hello there, friends! It has been a long long time since I wrote a post on my blog…for those of you who are new here, I was expecting my first child in April. I’m pleased to say that she arrived safely and we are loving getting to know her. Here she is enjoying her patchwork playmat and tummy time pillow that I made. If you read my post announcing my pregnancy, you’ll know that I’m not going to be posting pictures of Little One on my blog – but I made an exception for these ones because it’s just the back of her. Hello, Little Girl! Check out that hair – she was born with all that 🙂 As you can probably guess, she has a lot of colour in her life – and a lot of animal prints.
Christmas crafting is in full swing of many of us now, which means that I can’t actually share most of the things I’m working on with you at the moment! However, I was recently invited to take part in a competition to design a Christmas wreath as part of the Direct Blinds ‘Deck Your Doors’ campaign, and this I can share with you! I had been wondering about making a felt Christmas wreath anyway, so this was a great opportunity to get around to doing it.
It has been a little over a month since my blog switched over from So Many Crafts, So Little Time! to Hello! Hooray! and I’m so pleased that I decided to change things. It was a bit daunting at first, and I didn’t realise all the technical things that I’d have to learn, but I’m glad that I just went for it! When the switchover happened we were on holiday, and I had to rush to the aquarium in Maryport to be able to use the WIFI there to write my original post about the changes. I arrived there quite late in the day and didn’t have a huge amount of time to say what I wanted to at the time! So hopefully I can cover everything that I wanted to, now that I have more than 20 minutes to think about it… Read More
