Happy Valentine’s Day

Love is in the air……and I can now share my Valentine’s card with you all as the big day has now arrived. Hopefully the recipient loved it (well, there are no ‘Poncy Bears’ on it, so that’s a start!) I wanted to make something classic,…

Goodbye, Good Luck

This week, a lovely work colleague is leaving and I wanted to make her a keepsake gift. I had read about handmade Survival Kits on the internet last year and thought that this would be perfect. I used a tin (from Ikea) and various bits…
