Helium Balloon into… CUSHION!

Hmmm, so – how did you spend your weekend? Perhaps a walk, some chores? Time in the garden? If I gave you 100 guesses I am not sure you could have predicted that I was turning a helium balloon into a cushion?! Freddie LOVES balloons, but in particular – this helium balloon. It was left Read More

The Table

Tables. I have talked about them before in this blog, but to me – they are such an important part of furniture. They are MORE than ‘just’ a piece of furniture. They truly are, and make – the heart of the home. Yes, they get covered in ‘stuff’ and random cr*p but they are still Read More

For someone who loves being organised – a Cricut Maker* is an absolute DREAM! We put this Ikea storage into the playroom earlier this year… No exaggeration, we spent SEVEN hours tidying and arranging these yesterday… adding the coloured vinyl labels on to the draws is the icing on an organised cake! Such a simple thing Read More

Time to refresh, renew, strengthen and build.

Gosh it has been a super long time since I have written a post… I had almost forgotten how to do it! Over the last year I have basically just tried to keep my social media going for The Crafty Lass – my website and blog rightly or wrongly has largely been ignored. I was Read More
