Cross Stitch Ornaments

I shared my last-minute Christmas decoration making the other day so I thought I’d best let you all know that I did in fact finish them and gave them as gifts for Christmas. I was pretty pleased with the finished results. Each one has a name stitched on them but I have edited the photos […]

Merry Christmas

Christmas 2013

Thanks for hanging out with me here at The Crafty Mummy this year and especially this Christmas season. I’ve had so much fun creating Christmas crafts this year! Christmas can be lost in all the glittery sparkly decorations so easily though, so I’m just gong to take a minute to talk about what Christmas means […]

I love being a stay at home mum! I know this is not possible for every mum, and there are many mum’s who are keen to go back to working outside the home but I love the opportunity that working from home gives me to set my own schedule and spend time at school with […]
