A selection of links to help us all be tidy crafters!

To follow on from my last post (and to continue my avoidance of actually tidying up anything in my workroom) I have gathered together some links to great sites with freebies and downloads for all sorts of things which will help to make your craft room tidier and nicer to work in:


Tidy Craft Rooms

I’ve just finished a big craft project, one that ended up in a joint exhibition in our local Art Gallery. Now it’s time to tidy up all the mess I made during my weeks of frenzied sewing and cutting! Not really a fun task so today I have distracted myself by browsing the internet to look at inspiring craft rooms.

Back to Blogging





Back again after a summer blogging break. Whilst busy not blogging, the family  holidayed on one of the local islands  Unst, and spent a relaxing time doing nothing much at all and enjoying that quality family time a lot…

Batteries recharged thoughts are now about boys birthday parties, autumn and of course Christmas…

Off for a Wee Break


I’m off with the family for a short break to recharge the batteries before the schools go back next week and all our usual weekday routines start again. I’ll be back posting again shortly in the meantime I hope you all enjoy your own summer breaks.

Rainbow Bright Parisian Kindergarten

My youngest son is heading off to Nursery (Pre-school) after the summer. We are counting the weeks…him with great excitement…me with a little bit of sadness at the thought of my baby going off on adventures alone!  He will go to a lovely nursery, the same one his brother attended and loved. I came across these images of a beautiful, bright and cheery kindergarten in Paris…How could you not have  a fun day here!
