That’s the whole problem with the kids growing up and taking their own photos! I have to beg Chelsea to air drop hers to me all the time! Harry doesn’t even show me his photos (and I’m sure he takes them). *sigh* I’d love to see when you finally get to make a book Karen. ❤️

I picked up an issue of Mollie Makes the other day and was happy to see this little birdy key ring kit stuck on the cover. The only thing I added was the stuffing and I changed up the fabric... Continue reading

I wished the floorboards in my office/play room were polished. The floor had been left unfinished for over 10 years, but my wonderful hubby finally did it, sanding and sealing in the hottest of days. (What a trouper!) The boards... Continue reading

I seriously love making these little books each year and equally love looking back through the ones I've made over previous years. It's a really cool (and pretty) way to condense a whole years worth of family memories into one small book. They make perfect pressies for grandparents and loved... Continue reading

This is possibly the quickest and easiest project ever! It took me less than 2 hours to make 20+ Jarlights (including time to work out how to do it and take pics for this project). To make some pretty Jarlights of your own, you'll need the following supplies: Jam Jars... Continue reading
