In collaboration with The Works.
The summer holidays are nearly upon us! Where has the time flown! In fact, today is the last day of this school term for my children as we’re heading away a few days early for a weekend Chocolate Experience in Brussels! Yes, it’s been ok’d by the school – we’re a little bit more laid back up here in Scotland than some of your English schools!
Still, six weeks of school holidays means a lot of time to fill entertaining the children and, although I’d prefer to get outside and explore and be adventurous, sometimes the weather just isn’t on our side.
That’s where my crafting drawers come in handy. I tend to hoard bits of ribbon from chocolate boxes, coloured papers, embellishments and, oh, anything that might come in useful again some day, and store them in ‘the crafting drawer’.
I also like to top up the drawer with new supplies and crafting kits, all available from The Works and at prices that won’t break the bank!
