Pretty Handmade Fabric Storage Box

I am a big fan of storage, but sometimes you just can’t find something that is the right size, or looks right… In the end I decided to create my own, which is super simple!

This is quite an easy project, and can be done in a few different ways, depending on the time you have of the skills and equipment you have available.

Mini Easter Canvas Art – Quick Easter Crafts

As we’re still in Lockdown; and I wanted to up my seasonal content; I’ve been looking for some fun Easter crafting. Mostly because I just want fun things to work on! I was checking out some quick things to do and found some cute mini Easter Canvas squares, which seemed just the thing!

On the desk...

So I love a bit of colouring, it’s relaxing, and colour in canvasses are easy to do with a handful of pens, if you don’t want the hassle of dealing with paint! I should point out, although I have worked with Hobbycraft in the past; this post is not sponsored; I just wanted to share it!

I’ve not done a lot in the way of seasonal crafting, aside from Christmas! So I thought, in the spirit of Lockdown fun, I would work on something for Easter! I’ll be busy in April, but thought I’d share it now. I picked up this cute Easter cross stitch kit from Hobbycraft online.

This Week #6 Stormy Weather, Double Rainbow and I Got My Hair Cut!

Oh what a week it’s been, the weather here in Cornwall has been reasonably manageable, what with the recent stormy weather, though my thoughts go out to any of those affected by the flooding and other damage!

It’s been a very work based week, so I can’t say I’ve done all that much, but I can at least fill you in on things I didn’t mention from this month, in my previous update!
