2014 Round up

What a year 2014 has been and now it’s all over. I can’t believe how fast it’s gone and how much we’ve crammed into it either! Millie will be 2 in April and that scares the hell out of me but I can’t wait for the adventures of 2015 to start. Here’s a few of my favourite bits from 2014...

I hope you’re year was as good as mine and you have an amazing New Year. 

See you in 2015!

DIY Christmas Decorations

I’m one of those big kids that if you sit me at a table with Arts and Crafts, you’ll find it hard to take me away. Glitter, paint, glue, cutting, sticking... You name it - I’ll do it! I love my creative side and I really hope that Millie develops one too and so this year we have been making a lot of our own Christmas Decorations to hang on this lovely white branched tree that stands in the kitchen. Most of the decorations are from Hobbycraft but I picked up a few cheaper things too from Home Bargains. 

The tree itself is a lovely modern addition to any Christmas decor within the house and because we have an open plan living room/kitchen, it’s a nice piece that separates the 2 rooms and helps the kitchen look a little more festive! I do want to get some tiny lights to go on next year though as we’ve not had chance to get any this year and it’s crammed with our DIY decs. Take a look at what we’ve been making...

We got the wooden gingerbread man, reindeer, star and candy cane from Hobbycraft* along with the craft glue, glitter, white paint and green paint and then the rest are from Hobbycraft. Simple glueing and painting are so easy and fun to do with your little ones, just be prepared to be covered in glitter for the next 2 weeks!
