Summer holidays, you either love them or hate them. I am never sure about which camp I am in. I love spending time with the children but do worry about the cost of summer activities. I relish not having to get up each morning and giving up the school routine, but I don’t like hearing the words “I’m Bored” That is why I came up with the bored jar (about four years ago).
Can you feel Spring in the air yet? I think I can and I have started thinking about Spring crafts for kids and we have a fabulous selection of crafts that kids will love here. I love Spring, the garden is filled with vibrant colour after a long, cold winter and the days are getting longer fast. I LOVE spring because it means more outdoor time, butterflies, birds, bugs, flowers and spring showers.
One of the things that I adore about the holiday season is taking out the Christmas decorations and placing them on the tree. Reminiscing about each and every one of them, especially the kid made Christmas ornaments. The boys love talking about the ornaments they have made previously and which year they made them.
These simple DIY wine bottle light are the perfect quick New Year craft. They are a great way to recycle used wine bottles and also decorate your home.
Every year we make salt dough or corn flour ornaments and unfortunately they got damp in storage and they were ruined, so this got me thinking about using air drying clay for a more permanent Christmas decoration.
The adult colouring craze doesn’t seem to be abating anytime soon and neither does the love for Christmas jumpers. So why not combine the two with these fantastic ugly Christmas sweater colouring pages.
Is there anything better than losing yourself in a good book? Well, why not keep your place in that good book with our fantastic winter colouring bookmarks.

Kid made suncatchers are a favorite of mine no matter what season, but they are especially stunning when the low sun shines through them in Autumn (or fall depending on where you are in the world). Plus autumnal colours are so warming and delightful to work with.

Ten years ago I became a mother. ten days after Mother’s Day that year. I remember getting a card from the bump (thanks to MadDad). Ten year’s ago my life changed in ways I could never imagine and each year I love Mother’s Day. This year I have teamed up with Paperchase to bring you some ideas to share with your husband and the kids. I am delighted to be working with them as most people know I am fueled by pretty stationery and tea!
The Autumn sun is a lot lower in the sky and now is the perfect time to make some wonderful Autumn/Fall leaf sun catchers.
