#MumsNight – How to be a Crafty Mum


how to be a crafty mum

One of the things I always thought I’d be when I’d be a Mom/Mum would be to be a Crafty Mum. I’d have crafty fun projects for my kids to do, all organized and ready for them to express their creativity – and we’d display it with pride around the house.

The reality has turned out quite a bit differently. I don’t have some some wonderful storehouse of crafty doodahs, no tempera paints or supplies, I don’t have ideas on what to have the kids make, the time to organize or do it – or the energy to clean it all up.

That desire though – to be that Mum and do those Crafty things is still there though – so for this week’s #MumsNight I’ve enlisted the help and wisdom of Maggy – the crafty goddess behind RedTedArt the blog where she shares her crafty ideas and projects.  Maggy via @RedTedArt twitter account will be co-hosting this week’s #MumsNight

Please join us at our Twitter Party on Twitter Monday Nov 12, from 8:30 -9:30 pm using hashtag #MumsNight to share tips, ideas and stories on “How to be a Crafty Mum”

To help you be a Crafty Mum – we’re doing a giveaway of these craft supplies to help you get ready to be crafty!

    I love the treasure/keepsake boxes. They look simple to make and not create too much mess in the process :)
