Clockwise from left: Why Don’t You Make Me; honeylemonuk; Francois Et Moi; awholelottelove There were some awesome projects shared for our #CreateMakeShare theme of ‘BLOOM’ – the above all made me smile, and I love their light and bright feel. Do check out my fellow #CreateMakeShare hosters, Anthea from Zing Zing Tree and Emma from Kids Craft Room for their ‘Bloom’ favourites.

Create Make Share #3

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.

The ‘green’ theme felt so fresh and uplifting – I’ve picked my favourite crafting moments. These were bright and refreshing, but also had a wonderful sense of quiet about them – Emily’s homemade garland hanging above those gorgeous bulbs, Rachel’s moment of mindfulness while catching up on some crochet, Peggy’s cute little embroidery piece for her new creative venture and…
