Surpriso Box : Arts and crafts made easy

I like the idea of doing arts and crafts with my kids, but when it comes down to the nitty gritty of actually doing it this is where I trip up. Either we doing have all the supplies and I don’t want to buy 100 brown bags to use 3 or I don’t want 5 different colour rolls of celephane to cut out a small piece of each. Arts and crafts take effort and planning and I worry about the mess and cleaning up.

If you are like me and think you should do more crafts with your kids but always put it off with a lot of excuses then Surpriso is for you. Well it is for you if you are Super Mom, all organised and don’t mind mess too, it will just make it a little easier. But for moms who are a little frayed around the edges and the house is already a tip and the thought of adding paint and glitter makes you want to cry it is perfect.

I was very interested to hear about the ladies in the community that they help support who do knitting and crochet for them.

A-Z knitting – B is for Bag

Today B is for bag, now while for a lot of women this may imply a lovely, fancy, expensive handbag for a knitter this has to be a project bag. Who am I kidding, it never stops at one bag, so make that bagS

There was a time when my projects far outnumbered the number of project pages that I had. The situation was rather dire, in fact there may have even been a few cases where some of my project were in plastic shopping bags – gasp, shock horror!!
