The 30 Day Coloring Challenge

I’ve been a little slow posting on her over the last week. The kids have been off school on their half term holiday so I have been busy baking cakes and playing games. I have however made sure I still had time to do my colouring so I could continue with the 30 day colouring… Continue reading The 30 Day Coloring Challenge

The Color Throwdown : Hope

I’m back with another entry for the Color Throwdown challenge CTD 379. The colours this week were pink, purple/mulberry, gold and hot pink. I have really struggled to take a photo that showed the colours as they actually are; the photo makes them look a lot paler. The stamps are from Kanban and the background… Continue reading The Color Throwdown : Hope

Seagull!

I went to Cornwall in August and as ever had to take craft/art supplies. The kids don’t cope well with going away (the uncertainty of new places etc) but at the same time they love it. At the end of the evening I needed something to relax with to try to forget about that day’s drama and… Continue reading Seagull!

Football Birthday Card

It was my Husband’s birthday just over a week ago. In my head I had planned this hand drawn card but the reality was that I was clearly brewing my sinus infection and couldn’t focus or sit at my craft desk for too long. I had bought a stamp set it the summer with various sports… Continue reading Football Birthday Card

3 Santas coloured 3 ways

Well, I shall keep this short and sweet. I’ve not been crafting as much in the last few weeks as I was full of cold and feeling completely rubbish. As of this morning I couldn’t cope with the pain in my head any longer so saw my Doctor. She promptly diagnosed a sinus infection and… Continue reading 3 Santas coloured 3 ways

Kids Crafts – Hama Bead Tea Light Holders

Well, half term came and went. Both kids came down with a heavy cold and chose to spend their days in their pjs glued to Minecraft. We made it out the house briefly but their tolerance for being out and about was low so we opted for long (oh my, some days were very long!)… Continue reading Kids Crafts – Hama Bead Tea Light Holders
