52 Weekends No.24 – Handmade Mother’s Day

The weekend, a time for you, to relax, spend time with the people you love, doing the things that you enjoy. My ’52 Weekends’ is here to help inspire you with things to do, places to visit, things to make and to bake. 52 Weekends No.24 – Handmade Mother’s Day Gift (because every mum loves a handmade gift). I bought the cross stitch kit from Hobbycraft and Ive had the material that I covered the hoop with in my sewing basket for years. It took a lot of hours to complete (check out all those French knots) but I’m really happy with how it turned out.

Happy NON FOOD FRIDAY! I was delighted when my copy of Lagom Style Accessories came through the post this week. I loved styling and shooting this book so much, I’m so proud to have been part of this project, it really is a beautiful book! AND… I was thrilled to see Ellie Cat made it in to the final version. I highly recommend you get a copy, author and projects by the talented Debbie Von Grabler-Crozier and available to purchase from Search Press.

52 Weekends No.22 – Sugar Hand Scrub

I love the weekends – guilt free relaxing, lazy breakfasts, lots of coffee, reading books, hanging out and watching movies with the family. I find weekends especially lovely at this time of year – sunny and warm inside, cold and crisp outside, however this weather is playing havoc with my skin so this weekend I decided to make a lovely sugar scrub to give my poor dry hands a pamper.

It’s super easy – I used equal amounts of sugar and coconut oil (but you can use less sugar if you prefer the texture less abrasive) and two drops of pure lavender oil. The sugar is a great natural exfoliator, the coconut oil is the perfect moisturiser for dry hands and the lavender oil calming – the aroma when mixed together is sweet heaven! I found this cute little jar in The Range for £1.29 which is perfect for storing this scrub and has a handy little wooden spoon for scooping it out… also this would make a lovely handmade gift especially with Mother’s Day approaching!
