Feeling crafty....

Well since my room for improvement challenge I've been feeling increasingly crafty... I've always been like that but I think having a little one has given me the perfect outlet for my arty side. I can make silly childish bits and bobs and no one will think I'm odd! 

I've had some really nice feedback from my pervious post which included my dinosaur paintings. I got talking to the owner of the fab shop Milestones in Whitstable and I will be featuring as her 'artist of the month' in August! 

I was also mentioned by Actually Mummy who writes for BritMums 'Newbie Tuesday', I was so chuffed i think it spurred me on a bit! 

Recently I've made (or customised) a play house (interior decorating included!), a toy chest, lots of various art work for the little one's room and I'm currently up-cycling a vintage chair. Tonight I have made our little man's friend a small toy as a christening present!


It's by no means perfect but I think the little fella will like it! What do you think? Have changes in your life ever made you get crafty?
