Easter Craft Roundup

It's Easter Sunday tomorrow and that can only mean one thing...chocolate! Or so my kids and I'm sure countless other kids think anyway. I have the easter eggs and gifts lined up ready for my girls. I didn't get Kieron anything as he is only just starting to wean at the minute so even the baby ones are no good for him yet. I got the girls a chocolate egg each and a little toiletry set each. I usually make them an outfit each too but I have been run off my feet this year with the baby so tut...

Recipe: Banana pancakes

egg free pancakes gluten free pancakes half term holiday recipe Holiday recipes pancake day recipe Recipes vegan pancakes

It's half term here in Shrewsbury this week, but with Storm Doris blowing a hoolie outside and Pancake Day looming, we decided to stay in the warm and try out a pancake recipe I've been thinking about for a while. This recipe is actually for egg free pancakes, it uses mashed banana instead of egg. We are not egg free in our house, but I love the subtle banana flavour. If you are not a fan of banana then obviously they are not for you, but we love banana so they are brilliant for us! They can be turned into vegan pancakes...

She can have a hard, gobby front sometimes and she can be a handful but underneath she is so loving and sentimental. She is pretty shy but once...

My Week: Tax Returns, Cuddles and Birthday Preparation

About me Parenting

This week I have mainly been doing my tax return, so unfortunately I have not had much time for crafting. The girls were at their dad's house last weekend so it would've been the ideal time for me to get on with some new designs but it obviously wasn't meant to be. Me and Kieron had a lovely weekend to ourselves though, having lots of cuddles while he was awake and me working away, crunching my numbers, while he napped. He is 3 months now, so officially not a newborn anymore. He is so active and alert now, it's lovely to see....

As 2016 is coming quickly to an end, I decided to look back at some of my favourite makes this year. Almost every time I finish something, it is added to the "cutest thing I've ever made" pile, so it was quite hard to narrow down but I came up with this list of my ultimate favourites of 2016. 1. Baby Bear Hooded Cardigan This is my favourite make of the year, and also my bestseller so it seems that everyone else loves it too! I have made several different colours for my new baby, some with ears and some without,...
