Handmade Stuff

I’m going to use this page to share some pics of the kinds of things I’ve been making.  I love being creative and making stuff from scratch…but I  wish I had more time to do so!  As a mum of young children, I find I can only do snippets here and there…usually whilst little ones are sleeping!
