The Crafty Lass does… A celebration of the discarded babygro!
Babies grow REALLY fast. Everyone tells you – “enjoy it, they won’t be like that for long…” I heard what people were saying when I first heard this… but I am not sure I really took on board just HOW super mind bogglingly fast time actually disappears… and that some days I think our little
Top 5… Valentine’s Crafts 2017!
So it is nearly February 2017… seriously – where do the days and weeks and months go? One minute I was writing a blog post about welcoming our little one into the world and now he is just over 3 months old and nearly doubled in birth weight! I always seem to start blog posts
The Crafty Lass does… Wedding commission!
Going back to the beginning of 2016, The Crafty Lass was asked to make something special for a couple’s beautiful wedding – I was honoured to have been allowed to make something for their big day!

Top 15… DIY Advent Calendars!
I love Christmas. I am sure I will say that more than once over the next few weeks, but it really is my favourite time of year. I even like the wintery weather! Apart from the obvious – ‘big day’ – I love the build up to Christmas, perhaps even more than the main event.
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
Top 5… Autumn Crafts!
Wow, what a week! The Crafty Lass is busy, busy, busy… you might have guessed by the very severe lack of blog posts over the last few weeks! Sometimes I wish there was two of me – not sure my husband would like twice the nagging, but I would certainly get a lot more done (both
The Crafty Lass does… Vintage Floral Wedding Bunting!
One of my most recent projects was to create this vintage florals inspired, romantic bunting for some friends getting married. What started out with just some ‘plain’ bunting in their pastels colour scheme, quickly escalated into little daisies, peonies, roses – all fashioned from just ‘normal paper’, and some wall paper off cuts! Massively inspired
The Crafty Lass does… Big birthday celebrations!
It’s been a busy week of celebrating some special birthdays – my dad turned 70 and one of our close friend’s Mark turned 40! What better way to celebrate than to have some delicious birthday cake…and topped with a The Crafty Lass cake topper! For my dad’s birthday, we had a wonderful Carrot, Cardamom and
The Crafty Lass does… Personalised Wedding Bunting!
Congratulations to our dear friends Matt and Karen who got married recently. 🙂 As a wedding gift, I decided to make them some personalised bunting – in the colour scheme of their big day, and also made out of maps with special locations to them! The maps were ‘old’ – some torn, some with covers missing
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
