Today I wanted to share a quick DIY with you, which is perfect if you are living in a rental and have limited options as to decorating. Of course, you can also try it out if you own your home! It’s so simple, it doesn’t even deserve to be called a tutorial. All you need […] Read more…

Rain Cloud Mobile

Ever since I discovered they sell bags of felt balls, sorted by colour, at our local crafts store, I knew I had to do something with them! I had no idea what at the time, but after hovering over them on several craft store trips, I finally purchased several bags of felt balls in different […] Read more…

Rocking Horse Makeover

Last Christmas, when pondering the inevitable question of what to get the kids, we decided to up-cycle some of our old toys for them.

Big Brother Kit

We consulted […] Read more…

Teddy Bear Wardrobe

Are you ready for this week’s DIY gift idea? We’re back to sewing this week. Earlier this year, we attended my sister-in-law’s wedding in Scotland and I wanted to bring along something quiet for the boy to play with to keep him occupied if necessary. He already had one of those cheap little teddies from IKEA […] Read more…

{DIY} Toy Garage

1 August 2013 Recently we have progressed from chunky toy cars of the kind that babies play with, to small matchbox cars of the kind that little boys play with, and that seem to multiply like rabbits when you’re not looking.
