One Tweak Leads to Another.

What do you reckon to the changes to the fonts, colours and layouts?  I was never really happy with the different coloured fonts being used so I've had them tweaked and while at it the fonts and layout have been altered but I'm not 100% on…

They Were Going To Put It In a Skip!

Lights, Camera, Action!

The camera problem is sorted. Admittedly by buying a new camera but hey, the end result is my knackered camera is no longer a problem and I can now take photos properly. I am actually really quite impressed with the few shots I've taken…

The Best Laid Plans . . .

Why does nothing ever seem to go to schedule?  The plan was to have finished items ready to add to the shop this week but it seems the world has conspired against me and I'm not quite there. Okay, maybe not the entire world, but my children…

Finding Inspiration in Getting the Kids Outside

This morning my youngest came downstairs with a pile of clothes in her hands and announced that as it was a nice day we were going to the woods.  Now normally I'd agree that letting a 9 year old dictate what the family does in this way…

Ts and Cs, Guidelines, legal smiegel, boring, boring, bored!
