One of my resolutions for this year was to start and do a bit more crafting for myself again. Obviously I share loads of craft ideas on here but ironically this has lead to me doing far less crafting for myself these days which is a bit of a shame. When Sarah from Evermore contacted me to ask if I’d like to try out their DIY scented candle making kits I jumped at the chance as I knew that this would force me to put a bit of ‘me-time’ aside and of course it helped that the candles themselves looked fabulous.
Last week I went to Padstow, I had a plan that I was going to hit the clothes shops but instead the only thing I bought was some large shells from a seafood stall, they were so cheap I couldn’t resist! Whether you buy your shells from a stall or pick them up at a trip to the beach seashell crafts for kids are a really fun way to make something a little different and this sweet sea shell whale is a fun sea craft for kids that’s easy to make as well as looking cool.
I love creating story stones and my kids do too, they’re a really simple thing to do that’s great for encouraging a bit of creativity. I’ve previously shared some sea themed story stones that are perfect for the summer and with the warmer weather approaching I thought it would be fun to make some camping story stones ready for a bit of an adventure.
Like a lot of people I have a bit of an obsession with buying stationary and there are times when the cupboard here that is meant to be dedicated to the children’s crafting can look a bit like an overflowing stationary shop. So that I’m not just buying stuff and not using it I always try to create something with what we already have. Of course that’s not just my own (cute) stuff but the things that me and my husband have lying around from our work too – lots and lots of office supplies.
