I made a few gifts this Christmas and they all required a lot less time and skill than the ones I received. Still, getting anything made this year was a challenge (I’ll blame it on the baby) so I was happy with the pleasure I got from producing one or two home made gifts. This knitted corsage was the result of a craft morning at our church. It was a pleasure to give it to my sister along with the instructions and materials so she can start to make her own.This idea, the instructions plus dry ingredients for making a cake in a mug in a microwave, come from katescreativespace as did the idea for making firelighters out of tea-lights and pinecones. I love Kate’s ideas and the stylish way she presents everything. I highly recommend her blog for clever ideas which always come with lovely helpful instructions.
I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. View all posts by Amy
