St Patrick’s Day Hats

Welcome March!

Everyone is very excited about March in our house this year.

My son Harry is going to be six on the 28th of March and is counting down the days to his birthday party and my book ‘Get Crafty’ is being released this month too so we have lots to look forward too!

To celebrate March I am going to be doing a fun challenge for myself called ‘A Craft A Day’.

To kick off the 1st Day of March, here is a little taster of one of the crafts from my upcoming book ‘Get Crafty’.
