I wanted to try something fun and different this season; so I got thinking, and remembered some old origami I learned as a child. And so I decided to make some no sew felt love heart decorations! Perfect for Valentine’s or just because!
Instead of sewing these; which is -of course- an option; I used some glue, felt and other bits and pieces from my craft stash, to make some cute handmade decorations. I also quite like the idea of layering these, to be able to use vinyl to decorate them! Perhaps some other time!

It’s love season, and I couldn’t resist digging into my stash to make some pretty scrap fabric hoop art! I chose a simple heart design, to keep this DIY project quick and easy to make!
Everything I used for this project was from my craft stash, and would make great home decor, or a fun handmade gift, for Valentines, Mother’s Day or even for birthdays, new babies, weddings and anniversaries! Changing up the colours alone makes this an incredibly versatile project.

It’s Day 2! In this post I’m sharing how I got creative with a wooden Gingerbread House! It was a great excuse to do something a little bit different, and try something new.
As much as I love the idea of making a real gingerbread house, it’s not something I could leave out at Christmas, because of the cats, and because generally I think it’s kind-of gross. And also, because we REALLY don’t need more treats and stuff at this time of year! So a wooden one seems practical!

In case anyone missed it, I love a wreath… So it seemed only right that I got to making something I could dig out around October every year to add a little seasonal touch. With that in mind I headed to Hobbycraft, and picked up some supplies to make my own simple autumn wreath.
I wanted something more autumnal than Halloween based, but that worked for both aspects. It’s a nice little addition before heading into my favourite season of all!

I got to thinking this year about crafting for Halloween, for those who won’t be entertaining kids! There’s a little bit out there for the grown-ups, but some is excessively samey; and some is a little OTT for your average gathering. In this post I thought I’d share some quick crafty Halloween makes for adults; which can all be made of an evening, and will add a little whimsy to your ghoulish gathering; whether it’s a dinner party, or a movie night!
I will be sharing more Halloween craft ideas throughout the month; and of course there is regular seasonal and NON seasonal content throughout the year. So if you’re not already; do give the blog a follow, or subscribe by email; so you don’t miss out!

What lovely amazing weather we’ve been having! All the better for getting out in the garden, and of course; if I’m spending more time out there, it made me realise how much I needed to renew the garden bunting!
This has become even more noticeable, as I’ve been out planting; doing more of the 30 days wild list; and of course, enjoying family time in the sunshine!
