It’s been a busy month, so that makes us even more grateful to those that have taken the time to share their creations for our Create Make Share linky hosted by myself, Emma at Kids Craft Room and Anthea at Zing Zing Tree. I love the brightness and optimism that I can feel in these four shots, shared via the #CreateMakeShare tag on Instagram, together with that sense of spending time in the kitchen, or cosying up at home, during the colder winter days. Biscuits, marmalade, snuggling up with new cushions, creating indoors – all these things are infinitely appealing when it’s cold and grey outside.
1. How cute are these biscuits by tending.to.vanish? They were made using Craftpod’s winter craft box. I’m feeling inspired – this would make a great weekend or after-school activity for the twins and I.
2. Emily has been hard at work making marmalade. Even though I’m not personally a fan (I love oranges, but don’t like orange-flavoured things strangely), the idea of spending a day creating in the kitchen is something I can relate to.
3. Another Emily, this time from Allen + Bear – her handmade cushions are just beautiful, and that metallic gleam adds the perfect touch of warmth and glamour for the winter.
4. Jenny.bee13‘s sycamore lino prints caught my eye because I’ve been considering adding a sycamore seed tattoo to my collection in 2016. The twins love finding these when we’re out and about, and sending them tumbling through the air.
And finally, how cool is this upcycled sign with lights by Jenny at The Gingerbread House. I love the rustic finish of that old scaffolding plank next to the clean lines of the painted words. This is an upcycling project I’d totally like to try out for the kids’ rooms.
The next month’s Create Make Share is all about love – whether you make a little token to give to someone special, cook up a recipe to share with those you care about the most, or show a neglected corner of your home a bit of love – share with us the things you make that are all about that warm fuzzy feeling.
