52 Weekends No.35 – Festival Flower Crown

This weekend we enjoyed sunshine, live music, Halloumi burgers, hippy stalls, axe throwing and Morris dancing at the Strawberry Festival in Cambridge. Inspired by all the flower crowns seen at the festival I decided to make my own with some garden wire and some ribbons and artificial flowers I had in my craft box… it’s so pretty i don’t want to take it off!

National BBQ Week 2018

What better way to start the week than with a scorcher of a bank holiday and the beginning of National BBQ week! Also being Meat Free Monday don’t forget all the great veggie options available, personally I don’t think you can beat a summer salad eaten outdoors with  a corn on the cob cooked on a BBQ!

52 Weekends No. 34 – Needle Felting

I’ve had such a busy week working really long hours that it made me look forward to this weekend more than usual. Saturday morning on the way to the supermarket to do the weekend shop I detoured into Hobbycraft to buy some supplies and have a browse. Ever since I’ve been getting more involved in the craft world for work I’ve been drawn towards the needle felt creations I’ve seen (possibly because most of the time they are cute little animals), so when I found this sweet little dinosaur felt making kit for £4 I knew I had found this weekends project.

I was completely new to this and it was a great craft to learn, the instructions were simple and easy to follow and all you needed to add was a tons of patience. I sat on the sofa whilst the kids watched a movie stabbing away and bringing my little creation to life (stabbed my fingers a couple of times too). It’s quite addictive, therapeutic and has left me feeling very inspired to make my own designs, maybe some cute little aliens next! For £4 I would highly recommend giving this mindful little craft a try!

Juicy Cola

I cannot shout loudly enough about this new cola I recently discovered made by The Juice Shed Company, which is made from all natural ingredients! As well as original flavour it also comes in cherry and blueberry and wait for it… WHICH COUNT AS 1 OF YOUR 5 A DAY! Amazing, I know! So amazing I made this cue little video if them!
