Finalists! WHOOP!

silly-string-1

We just wanted to say thank you so much if you voted for us in the Bib Awards, because we’re finalists!! Hoorah!!!! Your support means the entire world to us and we can’t say how much we appreciate the support of the people who read our blog. We always assume our posts only get read by our mums (and, to be honest, judging by recent conversation they don’t always seem to be following us either…). It makes it easy to write when you imagine no one is there at the other end to read, and we know we don’t have a humungous following. We’re a teeny tiny speck of a blog really, compared to all those giants out there. But for those of you who are out there, reading about all our little crafty makes, you should know we appreciate you, and we’re so happy to have you here with us.

Guest Post: Crochet Cherry Necklace

Hi! This is Jess from Let’s Do Something Crafty, I’ve known Laura and Tia a little while now and they are so lovely plus I adore their blog so I’m very happy to be guest posting for them.

This is a fun little crochet tutorial and in it I will show you how to make some crocheted cherries. I will be turning into necklaces but you could actually do anything with them, you could sew them onto clothing or make bunting with them, the possibilities are endless!

We’re so excited to share our news that we are now going to be working with high street stationers, Paperchase, on their recently launched blog, The Journal. We are probably the two biggest fans of Paperchase out there (we both recently bought a whole load of matching stationery from there… losers!) so to be working with them makes us really happy.

Peek-a-Boo Wooden Puzzle

My Little Button is at an age where wooden puzzles have suddenly become fascinating to her. Her Grandpa and I simultaneously came up with a craft project idea based on her new-found love, to create a customised ‘peek-a-boo’ family puzzle. Grandpa did the hard work of constructing the puzzle, and I added the decoration – so the instructions below are a team effort!
