toddler crafts!

just because your little on is to young to draw does not mean they are to young to make beautiful art work for family members. i always draw around her hands and feet as well as letting her have a good scribble. i let her get involved in helping glue, stick things on, tidy up the craft box and explore(play with) the craft material we are using. be aware that it will be messy if they are really young and to keep a very close eye on them as they like testing everything with there mouths.

Miniature cupcake stand/ sweet stand!!!

i have had my hands full lately with a toddler and a new born baby so i have not had much time for my crafts, now things are settling down and getting in to a routine i have found some time to make this beautiful miniature cupcake stand/ chocolate stand/ sweet stand.  

 i think it will make a wonderful present for Mrs Jinks!!

i can not wait to see what it will look like with a posh box of chocolates on or full with mouth watering sweets! more china crafts coming very soon.

the biggest project of all!! our home!!!

this was our very first look at our new family house!! needs a lot of work so is a labour of love but at least that way we can get it just the way we want it. its going to be a long project but i will keep adding updates on the progress we are making on the house and the garden.

handy little out building, need work too but i think they will make perfect storage sheds for all the produce i intend on growing in the garden.

a amazing garden but needs lots of work. has apple, plum, hazelnut and elder berry trees as well as blackberries and edible mushrooms. 

best thing of all the garden is full of beautiful wildlife.
let the landscaping/renovating begin!

who needs a paddling pool when you have a blow up dingy?

 it was a lush summers day and there we where having a wonderful family picnic in the garden, the kids where having a water fight and and telling us oh how they wish they had a paddling pool, when my partner shaun thought of a great idea.......
...... and so the dingy became a paddling pool and they where in there all day.
