Wednesday Words...


After Tuesday's weather this about sums it up for today around here, wish I could just stay in bed! The kids and I will have to settle for a Pyjama day and movies. Might do a little bit of cooking, whip up a pot of Chicken and Vegetable Soup, some Cookies and maybe set up my new loom which was won through Loom Loom Shake giveaway on Instagram :)

Finished this weave last week. Reminds me a little of bubble gum and cotton candy. Loving all the pastel colours. This pretty is off to a new home this week. 



There will be no hanging of washing that is for sure!! Check out my clothesline. Just thankful my house is still standing and no one was hurt. xox Bec

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).


Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
