Other stuff!

Looking for inspiration, and ideas? Then look no further. These things here are not dairy related at all. In the world of parenthood that it's so easy to get bogged down in the drudge of day to day life, so look around and celebrate the little things... 

Cross-stitching enthusiast?
While I'm not very good at thinking up my own designs (sorry to anyone who's design I have botched!), I do find cross-stitch very relaxing. 

Nursery Animals 
I just love these three animals that I cross-stitched before T arrived. We didn't know his sex before he arrived, so I wanted something neutral to decorate his room.

Step by step guide to chair makeover

Have a look here to see how I made over four simple Ikea chairs. My first attempt at using chalk paint (but probably not my last!)

We all know how babies, children (and the dog!) seem to love the cardboard box or scrunching a bit of newspaper more than playing with the actual toy. Treasure chests are a great way to introduce your child to the world around them by sights, smells, textures and even tastes if you're creative enough. The great thing with treasure chests is that there is no right or wrong way to do them, just add interesting bits and pieces from around the house or charity shops, and let your baby explore!
