Jam cake's

Not much to show you crafty wise today but I snapped a couple of pic's the other day whilst river and I were making Jam tarts (or Jam cake's as river calls them hehehe)So I thought I'll show you them.

River proudly cut out all the circle's ( for the bottom's) and the teddy bears ( for the top's)all by himself.
I think baking is something we should do together a little more often because he really did enjoy making his very own jam cakes lol. But before that I must make him a decent apron to wear.

Well that's it for now
speak to you all soon

A sneaky trip to the beach and a good team effort

We were a little naughty on thursday. It was such a lovely day we shut up shop and headed off to the beach.

We were blessed with nice weather for the whole day and I we all thouroughly enjoyed ourselves and we even managed to squeeze in a trip to the craft shop nearby lol

When we got home hubby and river decided that they wanted to got blackberry picking. So off they went in there wellies and came back and hour later with a bowl full of beries ( Hubby said they would of had loads more but river decided to try and wash them in the brook hehehe)
So anyway after a bit of team effort we've ended up with several jars of ...

Ummmm I wonder how long it'll last in our house lol

Oh and I finished another bookmark last night ...

He hasn't got a home yet but I'm sure he'll find one soon

Anyway that's about it for now I'll speak to you all again soon

Scrap store bargains

I took a trip to my local scrap store yesterday and picked up some real bargains so I thought I'd tease you with them.

I got all this yarn for the giveaway price of 50p a ball now is that a bargain or what. Most of it is 100% cotton but I also got a few others including luxury alpaka yarn. I could have gone mad and bought loads but The scrap store has a " don't be greedy" policy because all of there stuff is so cheap which I suppose is only fair.

I also picked up these small pieces of fabric and a pot of buttons for just pennies.

They are only small pieces but I'm sure I'll be able to make use of them.

Anyway Gotta go now, the Ironing is calling me (again)
Speak to you all soon

I'm sorry about the lack of posts over the last two weeks and I'm afraid I haven't got any crafty projects to show you. But I do have a few pictures of river in Thomas land.

We visited During our week up at my mums and a lovely time was had by all.

But now it's back to the reality of potty training and decorating which has been taking up most of my time this week. Next week is looking to be the same too.
I'll try my best to post something crafty as soon as possible
Speak to you soon
