Isn’t it the cutest?! Embroidery is something I’ve been wanting to do for ages (ok, since I saw my friend Gude’s amazing embroidery round her house) but I’ve always thought it would be too tricky, to difficult for me to do and if I’m honest, when I looked at starting all the embroidery kits I saw were a bit dull so I was really excited when Homecrafts asked if I would work with them to share this sweet bear embroidery kit with you. I think I might be a bit in love??

I have had so much fun this week making these two crafts to share! I’ve been working with SelfPackaging to share a couple of the fun cardboard decorations that they make and these DIY cardboard cactuses and cardboard letters have been so good to sit down and enjoy crafting! They’re now all making my home look more cheerful and they’re so easy to make I’m going to share how you can create them too! (Make sure you check out the letters too – perfect for kids bedrooms!)

Felt is one of my absolute most favourite things to craft with as it’s so easy to use so I’m really pleased to be sharing some crafts with felt with you today. I’m sharing a mixture of both crafts with felt to make for kids and a couple that I think are nice just to make for yourself, although if I’m honest even with things like the garland I’m sharing below I often start by thinking that I’m making it for myself but the kids soon commandeer it! These would all also make great crafts with felt for teens or tweens too.

A few years back I used to do silversmithing and I must admit that I do miss it a bit. Not that I was great at it, but it was a really good excuse to just do something for myself and I love being able to look at something and think ‘I made this.’ With two kids getting out a blow torch just got a bit too tricky so jewellery making became something that was consigned to my past, I’m super excited therefore to be working with Jewellery Maker today to share about their new craft kits including this DIY charm bracelet which are a great way to fit some creative time and jewellery making into your life. What’s more, read on and I’ve got a great offer for you from Jewellery Maker too!

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.
