Craft tutorials and free templates


I’m finally able to tell you about my book…!

It’s been six months in the making (it was meant to take three) and has been a bit of an epic adventure for me. However, I got there in the end….thanks to a very patient bunch of people from my publishers Ryland Peters and Small….and a very patient husband + family.

The book is aimed at pre-schoolers and contains 35 colourful, fun & crafty projects. It really does look ace thanks to the efforts of photographer Carloyn Barber, stylist Liz Belton and Designer Sonya Nathoo (I’ll show you some pictures in the new year). Annabel Morgan has also done a super job of helping me out with the words.

It’s due to be released in April and is available for pre-order on Amazon. I’ll also be selling copies via my site when it comes out.

So, now you know why it’s been a bit quiet around here at times.

Phew! Weight lifted!
