Bonjour friends, strangers and Doctor Who Fans, how are we this splendid afternoon? Happy to have the school routine back in place? Grieving the passage of time that means your baby has gone off to Reception/Secondary School/University? Then gather close and we shall comfort each other. I’ll dig out a blanket, a box of tissues […]

I suspect most of you who read this are parents and we are now just on the cusp of the summer holidays. Talking to friends I find that parents react in one of two ways, firstly the ‘Agghh, how will I get it all done before the holidays start?’ and then ‘What will I do […]
Well, we’ve had a glimpse of the hot weather recently – let’s hope that’s not our lot, and it’s a taster for long balmy summer days to come. With half term for many of us coming up, it’s time to think about some summer crafting. A stroll across the fields yesterday showed me that the […]
Valentine’s Day is usually surrounded by themes of romance and sexytimes. But it’s a great family holiday too — celebrating friendship and love with your children, their friends and extended family. You can make it even more fun by doing some Valentine’s Day crafts with your children. We hung out with crafter extraordinaire Maggy from […]
St Valentine’s is the day of lovers celebrated around the world with gifts of confectionery, poems and flowers but why buy a card or gift when you can make something with your own fair hands? Start getting ready and get inspired with our BritMums Google hangout featuring Maggy Woodley from Red Ted Art. Maggy will […]
Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat and all us crafters are gearing up for the giving season by making handmade tokens for our loved ones. I’ve been busy already and have made some bird feeders upcycled from old enamelware and vintage teacups. The lovely Rosalilium has been making delicious chocolate bark decorated with […]
I LOVE this time of year for crafts – Autumn, Halloween and then the quick build up to Christmas. All three packed with great opportunities for crafting with the kids. Lots of nature inspired crafts for Autumn, spooky fun for Halloween and of course the anticipation of Christmas just make it all just a wonderful […]
Finally, the Summer holidays are here! And as you read this you may however gradually be turning your mind towards Back to School. And I have to say, I LOVE Back to School crafts and have shared many Back to School crafts on Red Ted Art in the past… anything from pencil toppers, to pencil […]
Soooo, the summer months are almost among us (not that you would believe it, not very warm and sunny HERE!!!!), so we thought it would be a great opportunity to share some Summer Crafty ideas? No? I am sure you will have PLENTY of time to get crafty, especially if we end up with a […]
The countdown is on: less than a week until the event of the year, BritMums Live. I, of course, will be there. So if you are too, stop by and say hello. You won’t have trouble finding me: I’m very loud and I have really nice pink shoes. Plus if I get the chance I […]
So here’s the thing: it’s the middle of May and I am sitting wearing a fleece over my, not inconsiderable, layers as I type. I have committed the cardinal sin of putting the heating on because even the dog is shivering. There is a very real chance that summer has been and gone for me. […]
Hello and welcome to another roundup of gorgeous Home and Design posts from around the parent blogging community.

There’s still time to do Easter crafts — with your children, for your children, or organised so they can crack on with them on their own.

The sun is finally out and I think it’s safe to say that Spring has sprung (or is springing). It’s time to venture back outside and now there’s a few more hours daylight at the end of the day, there’s no excuse for getting outdoors and being inspired by nature to craft. Queen of the […]
So what’s been happening in the world of videos? What’s new? Me, I’ve been playing with making easy peasy video diaries on a Nexus 7 tablet Idealo offered me to review. The picture quality is great and recording, uploading and embedding it all from one device makes vlogging even easier than writing a post. I’ve […]
