Free Happy Weekend Adult Colouring Page 2

As you might know, I am a huge fan of colouring in for adults.  I find it relaxing and helps me switch off from the intensity of everyday life.  I have been working with the wonderful Tasha from Tasha Goddard Illustrates since the beginning of my journey into adult colouring and I am delighted to be sharing with you a free Happy Weekend  colouring page, but even more exciting some amazing greetings cards by Cardooo which are illustrated by Tasha.

Simple Father’s Day card – Hap-pea Father’s Day 7

I absolutely adore this simple Father’s Day card that has been designed for you by my fab 11 year old Maxi.  It is perfect for adding a little colour to as he has or for you to colour in completely and I am sure that any Dad would love being wished a Hap-pea Father’s Day.  This card was inspired by the fact that MadDad is currently growing peas in the garden.

Football crafts or Soccer Crafts for the Euro’s 10

These football crafts or soccer crafts for my US readers are brought to you in conjunction with MandMDirect.com.  For those of you that don’t know, I have two football mad boys.  Maxi is a defender (and a very good one at that) and plays in a team and has since he was five years old.  His team is an ace bunch of lads who now play in Division one and finished in the top half, which is great for a team that started out in division four.   At the moment with the Euro’s on my house is everything football, when they are not watching it they are playing it.  So more »

Shoebox table football/foosball table 20

My boys are football (soccer) mad.  They would play morning noon and night it they got the chance, but the British summer time doesn’t always play weather wise.  So I made this shoebox table football/foosball table game for the boys to play.  We do have a larger one, but it is in our friend’s garage as we just don’t have the space in the house!

Bleeding Tissue Paper Rain Art for Earth Day 14

It seems to have done nothing but rain for months and months here in North Yorkshire and I decided to embrace the weather and produce this process art bleeding tissue paper rain art for Earth Day.  It was inspired by this beautiful snow day tissue art that I pinned and have been hoping for snow to do with the boys, but it has been the wetting winter on record in England, so we adapted it for rain.
