Welcome back to Tuesday Tutorials! There were some brilliant tutorials pinned last week, but I thought that this week I’d concentrate on looking at those which covered some activities that I could do with my son over the half term holidays. I’m hoping that the weather will be marvelous and we’ll be out playing every day, but if not…. well, help is at hand!

Thomas the Tank Engine is a favorite with many kids and I love how this idea from Mothers Messy Madness finds a way to use up all the polystyrene you get with packaging rather than just chucking it straight away. That’s pretty much free toys, right?

These chocolate hearts have been officially labelled by Anna at In The Playroom as being for Valentines Day, but I know my son would be happy to make them at any time of the year. Actually, so would I! View Post


Well last week went very well didn’t it?! I was beyond happy to see 36 posts linked up to Tuesday Tutorials last week, I hope everyone enjoyed it, that it shared a bit of inspiration and that it’s getting that extra bit of traffic to everyone’s blogs!

Before we crack on with this weeks linky I’d like to share some of my favourites from last week and I thought there were some brilliant sewing tutorials on there I’d like to try out.

Welcome to the first Tuesday Tutorials Pin Party! I’m so excited about starting this today and I’m really hoping to see lots of people join in.

The premise is this, I love Pinterest. I love being inspired by it, learning new things from it and also that it is one of the largest routes for people to find my blog. It continues to introduce people to he tutorials I’ve written for months after I’ve posted them on there without me doing any extra leg work. Bonus. So with my pinning partners in crime Anna from In the Playroom, Gude from Hodge Podge Craft and Anthea from Tales from Mount Pleasant we are starting the new Tuesday Tutorials Pin Party to help you share those great tutorials you’ve been writing. Crafts, recipies, how to make blog buttons, whatever you’ve written instructions on we want to share it with the world! Each week we’ll be pinning all the entries to the linky onto our Tuesday Tutorials Pin Party Pinterest board and sharing our favorites from the last week as well as tweeting our favorites on the #pintorials hash tag.

My name is Kate Williams and I am addicted to Pinterest.

I have no shame in this. It’s not something I want to change either, there’ll be no Pinterest Addicts Anonymous for me thank you very much. Nope, actually I want to feed my addiction and I’m hoping that you’ll help me.
