How to make easy peasy salt dough decorations

How to make easy peasy salt dough decorations

I’ve always wanted to try salt dough and I have no idea why I never did. Probably the easiest craft ever! All you need is 1 part salt, 1 part water, and 2 parts flour. Mix the salt and flour together in a bowl and gradually add the water. You might find you...
New City Girls WI and Benefit Cosmetics

New City Girls WI and Benefit Cosmetics

So here’s what I got up to last night…I went to a WI meeting in Chelmsford! I got a couple of funny looks when I said where I was going and that I’m hoping to join, but it’s not just any stereotypical Women’s Institute. First things...
The Spring Quilt Festival at Duxford

The Spring Quilt Festival at Duxford

The Spring Quilt Festival was held at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford from 6th to 8th March 2015, right next to where a load of planes are kept. Quite a weird contrast when you go in – massive planes on your left and quilts and endless fabric on your right!...

#FMSphotoaday 23rd February to 1st March 2015

It’s horrible to admit defeat but honestly the photo prompts keep building up and up and right now I’ve missed a whole week! Hardly photo a day is it?! Below are my photos for most of last week but for now I’m going to have to put #FMSphotoaday on...
The Bucket List

The Bucket List

I bought The Bucket List DVD on Amazon a couple of weeks ago for just a few pounds. It’s such a brilliant, uplifting film and I’d definitely recommend it, especially if you’re one of those goal setting wannabe traveler types like me! Number 4 on my...
February Favourites

February Favourites

This month I got back in touch with an old friend who has just started blogging herself (here’s her blog if you want to have a nosey!). Livia encouraged me to write a February Favourites blog post. I love this idea and may just have to do it every month now!...

#FMSphotoaday 16th to 22nd February 2015

I found the photo prompts last week quite challenging! How can I take an interesting photo for ‘bedside’ or ‘from where I stand’ if the only place I’m standing is in my house?! But hey, I think I managed it. Looking back at my first...
Valentine’s Day 2015 – homemade ravioli

Valentine’s Day 2015 – homemade ravioli

I hope you all had a brilliant Valentine’s Day last week! Whether you’re single or not, I think it’s great to spend a day with your loved ones. Before I met Zak, I used to spend my Valentine’s Day with my mum and sister watching films with a takeaway. To be fair, this...

I’ve achieved my first goal for 2015!

I can finally cross off one of my 15 New Year’s Resolutions! At the start of the year, I set myself 15 goals to accomplish this year to go towards my bucket list. My idea: split them year by year and eventually accomplish everything I’ve ever wanted to do! I started...

#FMSphotoaday 9th to 15th February 2015

I did quite well with my photos last week. Adding the daily prompts to my to-do list for each day in advance definitely helped, as well as adding all the little ideas that I had. I’ve started to try taking more photos of my work in progress as there’s...
Disney’s Mulan collection

Disney’s Mulan collection

I’m not well today…boooo! Whenever I’m ill I watch Mulan or another of my favourite Disney films (again, I’m not too old for Disney!) so I thought a Mulan inspired collection for today’s blog post would be a great idea! I’m not sure...

#FMSphotoaday 2nd to 8th February 2015

I had a bit of a panic at the end of last week thinking that I’d missed days of photos! I hadn’t. I had missed two…those two days must have dragged for me to think it was so long ago that I’d taken my last photo! From now I’ll be adding...
