Crafty

My two children are very creative, both at home and at school! They are never happier than designing and making things from paper and card, and we have a special ‘Create’ wall in our kitchen where lots of their designs are displayed! They both love drawing and making their own pictures, posters and cards and both love making models and 3D designs too!

It’s often the simplest things which can be most effective, and who doesn’t love a handmade gift or card for a special event or celebration! With my interior design focus, I also celebrate crafts and a few crafty ideas for the home!
