We are Baker Ross Bloggers!

So, it seems my children’s love of craft was spotted by the lovely people at Baker Ross, so we were invited to join their blogger network.

How could I say no?

Much to my delight, we recently had a box of goodies sent to us, mainly focused around spring time and mothers day. We took the opportunity to get some of the girls friends around and have a day a Nannies making some lovely bits and bobs.

The kids and adults had a wonderful time, Boo especially seemed to love the fact she had free rein with the glue, something which doesn’t happen too often. I thought I would let some lovely photos tell the story of the day with our first box from the lovely Baker Ross.

Craft two

Baker Ross do some amazing kits, like the daffodil wreath, the kids loved it. Their prices are second to none and the quality of each product is fantastic.

All the kids had a fab day and everyone had something to take home to their mums, the magnetic hearts were an absolute hit, the loved being able to add their own creations to the front, as did the adults evidently!

Keep and eye out for our next box of goodies and what the girls will do with it, I am sure it will be bigger and sticker than before!

Christmas Card For Santa, Our Entry

So we were asked to be involved with the create your own Christmas card comp with Furniture Choice, and as I have two arty children, we jumped at the chance!

The idea is to make a Christmas Card for Santa, which both girls loved. Lets face it, what Santa could resist a beautifully handmade card with his mince pie and brandy!?

So the lovely people at Furniture choice sent us a bag of goodies to help us with our little project, and as Pops as all but destroyed her other craft stuff, this was very welcomed. Anyway, as the girls are only 4 and 1, we thought the best way to do this was to set them up with all the goodies (even the glue) and let them do what they do best, be creative and make lots of mess! 

And what better way to show off our crafty afternoon with some photos….

Start

Getting started was easier than expected, especially as they were given so much choice on colours and card etc. Boo was taken with the huge array of felt tips, they are her favourite, so she got stuck into those and Pops took the lead with gingerbread men in hats! So off they went…

Making

After we had stuck everything they wanted onto the front of the card and Pops had spent much of her time explaining how Boo was to not scribble with her felt tips and was to “stay on her own side” we took to the glitter. The only way we could do this was to give them the glue to dollop about and then let them loose with several pots of glitter, see…

Glitter time!

We even captured a rather small hand after the glitter madness…

So, after over lovely afternoon with stamping, gluing, glitter, stickers and so much more, we finally finished our card for Santa. We even tried to stick the little cracker in on some springy card, but alas it was too heavy. Its the thought that counts so we’re thinking he will still enjoy it with Mrs Claus. I wrote the little message in and pops wrote her name again underneath, lets hope Santa likes it 🙂

A would like to say a big thank you to Furniture Choice for letting us take part. Both myself, sister and the girls had a lovely time, and it was great to get a little messy for once!

Merry Christmas 🙂

This is our entry to the furniture choice Christmas card competition. I did not receive any payment, however we were provided with craft materials.
