Lets Start Getting Crafty

So I thought it would be interesting to get into arts and crafts not just for myself but for Hayden as well. He’s at that age where he really loves making little pictures for us so its only right mummy is able to make quality bits too.

When we go shopping in Romford we always take a trip into Hobby Crafts to see what’s on offer and I managed to pick up a few bits and bobs. My mum will not let me leave The Brewery until we’ve been inside haha even if its just to have a look.

HobbyCraft is the largest arts and crafts retailer in the UK with 75 stores nationwide. With over 30,000 products for 250 inspirational activities and hundreds of exciting ideas, you’ll discover everything you need to get crafty.
 Including :
Value essentials

… And so much more!

Plus, when it comes to organising a party and adding a personal touch, you’ll find all of your favourite brands and everything you need for arts supplies.

I first started my collection when Hayden was about 3 months old and we would constantly misplace his dummy’s so I went and got a whole load of items to make my own dummy chains. They were not perfect but I loved them and it helped us so much. I can’t find the original photo but I’m sure there is one on my Berice Baby Instagram.

Our next adventure was Hayden christening cards, his original christening date was October 2012 but there was an emergency and my parents had to leave the country, there was noway they were going to miss it so it got postponed to the day of his birthday. That project was put on hold so I wonder what I will do with all the items now.

With Christmas round the corner … Yep, 4 months people! I can only image all the fun crafty projects to enjoy. I know for a fact I will be getting most of my ideas from Pinterest
I’m starting off slowly but surely with the Christmas’ stuff. What better way then to start with ribbons.

While having a good old look on pinterest I found some awesome Christmas Pins which I have also pinned to me Winter/Christmas Board – Why not take a look and get crafty too.
