I’m not good at throwing things away. I hate waste. I love the the idea of recycling and re-using. I keep all sorts of stuff that I’m convinced will come in handy for me to transform into some thing gorgeous and practical. You’d be surprised what you can use.
Craft for all.

If you’re a little stumped for some last minute christmas pressies, have some old condiment jars lying around and can get hold of some soy wax pellets and essential oils, there’s still time – have a go! It’s not difficult, it’s inexpensive and if you like making stuff – great fun.
It’s finally happened… we’ve been waiting aaaages. At last, after weeks of wobbling, it’s come out – the first tooth.
Already six and one of the oldest in the class, yet one of the last to start losing her baby teeth. It’s made me feel a little sad – she’s growing up – far too quickly if you ask me. But just look at that that little happy, gappy smile.
I’ve drawn up and made a little printable – a letter from the Tooth Fairy… complete with envelope. I’ve included pdfs which can be the saved as a an image file and placed it into a program of your choice (e.g. Microsoft Word, Adobe Photoshop, or an online photo editing site). Write your message, print and cut it out, fold and stick where necessary. I’ve provided full instructions on how to add text, plus an example of what the tooth fairy might write – optional of course. You can print it using one of the many quirky, fairy-style fonts out there, or even handwrite it for that lovely personal touch. Blond, brunette – you get to choose. Plus you get to use it again and again – just change the message each time. Easy peasy.

I’ve made an easy to follow pattern with a chart for those more visually inclined, plus a guide to the graduated stripe pattern.

So off to Jewsons I go for some pipe insulation (all will become clear – I promise). Love it there – shopping with all those builders – surreal.
I’m dedicating this post to the mums who are no longer with us, for whatever reason.
