Have you ever thought of getting more creative and trying out some new crafts? I always loved crocheting, indoor gardening and hand lettering but thanks to online resources I started needle felting a few years ago, and have never stopped since. Crafting allows me to relax and spend quality time with my girls at the same time. Maybe inspiration ideas from some of the best UK craft & DIY blogs will also help you to discover your new hobby. Below you can find a list of my recent favourites to get you started…
