If you follow me on instagram, you'll know that with my new found freedom I have been busy decking my metaphorical halls with festive decor. I don't usually put photos of my flat on here but this year I'm pretty pleased with my budget Christmas decorations and so thought I'd share them, and where I got them, with you.Read More

Who doesn't love homemade Christmas wrapping paper? It's cheap, unique and theres something so special about receiving a gift in wrapping paper that's been handmade just for you. Though, if you're anything like me, by the time you've done your last minute present buying, there isn't much time left to wrap your presents, let alone actually make the wrapping paper. And that's where having some pre-made handmade wrapping, like this printable watercolour festive wrapping, can be really handy!Read More

I've said it before and I'm going to say it again: pom poms make everything better. And that includes DIY projects. I feel like lots of other people have been feeling this way recently, if the number of creative pom pom blog posts that have been shared are anything to go by. I've seen them sewn on jumpers, t-shirts, bags, used to create garlands, wall hangings (find my very own one of these here), christmas tree ornaments, earrings and glued to decorative twigs, and just about anything and everything that you can glue pom poms too. So you can imagine how hard it was to narrow it down to just five projects for this post. But, I got there eventually, and as a pom pom enthusiast myself, I wanted to include a couple of my favourite projects. I haven't done a five faves friday post in ages but I really enjoyed putting this together so will be trying to get back into a semi regular routine of doing these.
Which of these ideas is your favourite?
If you follow this blog or my instagram account, you'll know that I love drawing mandala designs.

If you love mandalas, then you're going to love this DIY!Read More
