I love this little tutorial from Parenting Fun on how to make pipe cleaner dolls. They are so easy to make and oh so very cute, perfect for a rainy day activity, you just need some pipe cleaners, wool and bits of fabric…. soon you will have your own pipe cleaner family! Perfect for creating the characters out of fairy tales – which story will you tell?

At last a few days away in the campervan! It’s been a long time coming, but the sun is shining and the birds are singing. What a lovely way to spend the weekend. It is very tranquil, in the middle of a field in what feels like the middle of nowhere! I get to read books, sew, knit……whatever I like and no guilt about the jobs I should be doing, like cleaning the windows! Happy days!
It is so lovely when someone buys you flowers, to say sorry, or to say I am thinking of you, I love you …..but isn’t it sad when they fade and you have to throw those memories away? So why not try to preserve them a little and make a photo memento?
I use an online photo editor called iPiccy and I love it! It is so easy to use, has never let me down and it’s free!
Upload your photo to iPiccy and add a few special effects – these are the ones I used for this photo:
There are many more things you can do with this photo editor – explore and play!
Is it really possible for 3 hours of my life to disappear messing about on this blog? Goodness, I seem to have arranged and rearranged, categorised and recategorised, tagged and re-tagged – and it doesn’t look any different! The poor dog couldn’t be more bored…..each time I get up to make a cup of tea, he lifts his head and wags his tail in eager anticipation, then follows me to the kitchen, sure that I am going to pick up his lead and ball…and all I do is put the kettle on! Sorry George, forgive me, but tonight is a little blog maintenance!
Lovely little post on how you can turn pegs into candle holders and pots!
I just love this idea, I certainly hate pegging washing out, but this is worth buying some new pegs for! In just five minutes you can turn an old tin or candle holder into a work of art. Head over to Do it Yourself for the tutorial – you will up and running in no time!
Pin it buttons for your images – here is how!
Have just come across this great tutorial from ‘hello Monday’ on how to add a Pin It button to your blog images. Really easy to understand and they even tell you how you can make a custom pin it button too, can’t be bad! I haven’t done the custom button yet, but I will!
