With the weather being dire at the moment so many of us are choosing to stay in. And why not? It’s just as cool as going out!
There is a lot of fun to be had inside while it’s belting it down with rain and gale force winds outside. One thing that you can do is get creative! There’s nothing better than making some of your own Christmas , birthday or anniversary gifts. There is a real sense of achievement in doing so plus you know your loved ones will adore them!
The receivers of your gifts will be truly thankful, after all a handmade pair of earrings using your mothers favorite colors is so much more thoughtful than a shop bought item by miles!
