Glass Easter Egg Craft 2017

Happy Easter for those that celebrate.

I spent a lovely afternoon walking off my chocolate Easter egg in the local bluebell woods photographing the bluebells and my Easter craft. I saw this craft on Hobbycraft’s Instagram page. My Rangers (Part of Girlguiding) who are 14- 18 wanted to do an grown up Easter craft and when I showed them this they were very excited.

I went to the Hobbycraft blog post and made a note of all the things I needed to buy I then went to my local store and  purchased what I needed.

We used my hot glue gun to

  • glue reindeer moss to the bottom of the glass
  • glue the polystyrene eggs (they look real right!) to the mini nest
  • glue a cute little chick
  • glue paper blossoms- Daisy and Sunflower to the side
  • glue the nest to the moss

The girls really enjoyed this craft.

As you can see from the final product it looks really effective and something that I have up in house now during Easter.

I will post the link for the hobbycraft blog here go and check it out.

Happy New Year!

I think resolutions are hard to keep so I have made new year goals. These are my goals below over the year I believe they are quite manageable.

Blog once a week.


I started this blog in September and have been sporadically posting so want to make it a little more regular.

Moogly CAL 2017

I stumbled across the Moogly CAL late December and have my yarn ready to go a new pattern is released every 2 weeks starting from 5th Jan and I hope to keep up to date with it and have it ready for my husband in December.

Make all cards

I tried this year to make all my Christmas cards and was successful with this. I plan to make all birthday cards, Christmas card, new baby cards etc this year and not buy a single one!

Sew more

I went on a top making course in October and bought my own sewing machine early 2016 as my mum likes her machine for her! I haven’t used it yet I plan on making more tops on my sewing machine.

Do more cross stitch

I learned cross stitch in my early teens and did some more last year to make my husbands Christmas card. I was really pleased with it and really want to do some more.

Scrapbook Disney World Trip

I really like scrapbooking my pictures and have got slightly behind with it. We went to Disney World July 2016 and I really want to scrapbook the photos I will need to plan the papers and size of the photos and where they will go.

A kind word…

We received an Ikea jar full of cookies for Christmas and having eaten them I decided to decorate the jar .

Each day me and my husband are going to write a nice comments to each other and by 31st December we will have 365 comments and in 2018 we will pick one out every day and read it out.
This is something that I saw on Pinterest and thought it was a really nice thing to do.

 

What are you goals for 2017?
