Petal & Pip – is it real?
Surprise Luau Birthday Party – Club Tropicana!
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
The LoveCrafts Show

The Handmade Festival ONLINE 2020 – the FESTIVE edition!
I think we can all agree that this year – hasn’t quite gone to plan… Some highs, but mainly lows… certainly different.
