Once I get an idea in my head, it can be all I think about. Especially when it is crafty, has a theme… That’s it, I have an idea, and I am off. Often writing lists, sketching, find ways to get creative. Do you do this? I always have to start NOW. Back in April
Feast of Memories
I set myself a challenge at the beginning of 2021 – sort of a ‘New Year’s Resolution’. To keep this blog up to date, to make sure everything I was making didn’t JUST go on to social media… but, as time would tell it is proving very easy to slip back into old ways. Is

The Crafty Lass does… Nautical Cake Topper!
Inspired by my recent blog post on the birthday cake topper I made for my dad’s birthday – someone saw this and asked me to make another nautical themed version! Their daughter Nadine is apparently mad on boats and sailing… So, this is just what she got! 🙂 All handcrafted out of paper and card – a

Afternoon Tea Garden Party!
What a glorious day yesterday was – the sun shone from morning til late evening – and good job it did too – we were invited to an afternoon tea (and prosecco!) garden party, and so rain wasn’t really part of the agenda…! (We were very lucky as both Friday, and today have been horrid!) There
