Sometimes I feel a bit embarrassed describing myself as a professional blogger (Hi! I’m Kate! I make stuff out of paper bags and playdough for a living!) but I guess that’s what I am. Yes, I’m a stay at home mum too but this blog is my job, it’s how I put food on the table so I have to treat it with the same kind of seriousness as I would any other form of employment. Over the last year I’ve had a few real technical struggles with blogging – not great for me as I’m a secret technophobe – and one of the main and most obvious was having no internet at home. Twice in fact because we moved house twice in a year, so today I’m sharing what I learnt about blogging and broadband as well as how to keep your blog running if you don’t have access to the internet at all.

I love watching Wimbledon and this fun recipe is perfect to snack on while you watch it – strawberries and cream popcorn. I’ve already tested it out with my family and it’s been a huge hit, maybe a little too moreish if anything as we all couldn’t stop eating it! Inspired by the strawberries and cream which are de rigueur for watching tennis but without any sloppy mess – this might just be the perfect snack for the summer.
A few days back I shared a simple American flag craft and it’s proved so popular that I thought I’d round up some more American flag crafts for kids for you – perfect if you’re celebrating the 4th of July! All of these crafts are super simple and easy for kids to make, and even more importantly they all look loads of fun. If you love 4th of July crafts for kids then make sure you check out the link at the end of this page for more of my favourite kids craft ideas for 4th of July!
This super cute 4th July craft for kids is super easy to make and looks fantastic too. What’s more this paper plate flag is made using only a few materials that you’re likely to have at home already and if not I’ve got a few suggestions for materials you could use instead. I’ve been sharing a few 4th July crafts recently for our readers in the US so make sure you check out the links at the end of this post too for more 4th of July crafts for kids and 16 more American flag crafts too!
A few weeks ago I shared a great offer with you guys to get a free canvas print and it was so popular that today I’m doing it again!
