Minion Cake

As I mentioned in my last post, it was my friend’s 21st birthday a few days ago and my other friend and I decided to make him a cake. But not just any cake. Oh, no. We decided to make him a minion cake. If you’ve not come across minions before, they are basically the …

Yarn Bag Ta Dah!

I realised I said a little while ago that I should have a Ta Dah post coming up soon and then actually forgot to do it! This whole project has been a bit delayed really, as it was actually meant as a Christmas present for Heather but I only got around to making it at …

Spontaneous Art

On Monday this week, I had the house to myself and started the day by catching up on a few blogs. One of the blog posts I read was this one of Lucy’s. It showed a print of a collage that she bought from Caroline Rose Art after suggesting the idea of using a caravan in one …
