One of my favourite hobbies is buying tired looking dolls from charity shops and giving them a makeover. I prefer not to buy new toys for Tiny as she has so much already and I hate the waste. I have a couple of rules - I never spend more than £2 and I avoid the … Continue reading Upcycling Preloved Dolls.
I love being asked to write reviews for products that I can use with my daughter and the new Willow and Wild box was no exception. The Willow and Wild subscription box is all about nature inspired fun and learning for 3 to 8 year olds, and I was gifted one to try with Tiny. … Continue reading Review: Willow and Wild Box.
Tiny has always been a fan of doll's houses. There's a rickety old one at our favourite play group and whenever it's out she's always kneeling in front of it and murmuring nonsense as she shoves furniture in random places. She also loves my old doll's house which is currently on display in the loft … Continue reading Ikea Flisat Doll’s House
As I'm a glutton for punishment I decided that I really needed to makeover a table and chairs for Tiny, as well as an Ikea kitchen for her Christmas present.

My brother-in-law has been promising to give Tiny his old wardrobe for a few months now... once he eventually clears it out. It looks like it might actually happen this week so I've been sorting Tiny's heaps of hand-me-downs into sizes ready to put in the wardrobe. We're the last of our friends and family … Continue reading Wardrobe Dividers: A useful creative task to do with your toddler.
So November and December have been busy crafting months (like every other month) in preparation for Christmas. I've tried to keep it simple as I'm usually crafting whilst Tiny sleeps. Pom Poms! Having not made Pom Poms since I was a child I've recently become obsessed with them. I bought some Pom Pom makers on … Continue reading Christmas Craft Ideas
Not going to lie I am pretty thrilled with the Dinosaur Detectives box. I think I love it more than the Spooktacular box which is weird because I love Halloween. I was thinking about cancelling my subscription because only one of us is earning at the mo but after this box I'm definitely keeping going … Continue reading Review: Dinosaur Detectives Mess Box
Tiny’s kitchen is finished! Sort of. I’m still looking for some more accessories like bowls and a tea towel but the worst is over. And I mean that literally. I thought this was going to be easy but there were a lot of tears and much swearing at Pinterest. Hubby and I divided the tasks … Continue reading Ikea Duktig Kitchen Make-over: Part 2.
