I love doing anything crafty, I am just the worst at finishing anything. To keep Clem entertained on rainy grey days we’ve been doing some Christmas crafts. Pinterest is full of ideas so I’ve picked my top 10 of the ones I’ve found and included some of what we’ve been up to. Salt dough decorations – we haven’t made these yet but I hoping to do this next week. We did some last year with Clem’s hand and foot prints and put them on the tree. Christmas cards – These are great for giving…

As much as I’m trying to ignore it, there is no denying that Christmas is coming. The adverts are starting on tv, the shops are full of decorations and gifts. Now I will admit to being a late gift buyer, usually rushing around late December trying to buy everything. Recently I was asked by Britmums to do a Christmas gift challenge, which I thought was a great chance to get more organised this year. The gifts had to be £5 and under, and on Sports Directs website. Sports Direct isn’t usually…
