Crafty Mag and Me


Just a quick one on this rather lazy Saturday.
I am sure you are already well aware of this new mag on the block, I love it.
The last issue was most fab and I am absolutely mad over the front cover of the next issue, issue 6

To make this issue even more exciting, for me anyway, is the fact that my home is featured...how lucky am I.
There will be some professional pics, a nice change from my shaky offerings on here and there may even be a little pic of Maurice. Maurice is becoming quite a big headed little caravan of late.

So I am feeling a it foxy about issue 6, and it looks like it is going to be a really good one!



It is in the shops on the 29th of this month *(it being August if you, like myself, don't actually know what day it is).
I will be up bright and early that day and will be partaking in a pastry by way of celebration...weehee.
Thanks for reading. x

Things That Are Making Me Smile

I have been so useless of late.
No blogging, minimal Instagramming, quite a lot of doing nothing really.
As a mum, I am enjoying the lazy mornings but I cannot lie, I am quite keen to get them back at school/college (such a bad person).
I am sick of making cheese toasties...dropping off/picking up and the ridiculous amounts of washing.

Sorry to moan, I love them all dearly...most of the time ;-0

Luckily for me, there are a few things that are making me smile through the pain.

love these ever changing shelves

mother made me a patchy blankie

I treated myself to some new Washi tapes

Maurice has been organised to within an inch of his life

my funny boy and his snake (they are inseparable)

I hope my pics made you smile too and I am very much planning on putting a bit more effort in on this here blog.
Don't hold me to that though will you?
