Each week when I have written and uploaded all the different bit and pieces of this page and the subsequent special areas pages I give a big sigh of relief as I have finished for another week. Even though I still seem to have nobody reading them at the moment. Then, occasionally during the week I will save different ideas to a page where I store bits and pieces, & then again something interesting will happen and I think 'I should start my cover page now and jot down these happenings. (Doesn't happen.) Come Sunday morning I start to PANIC as I wonder of what to write about this week, and I am a BLANK!
I know I want to include Christmas ideas and recipes, but we still have TWO months to go and you still need to survive many other bits and pieces until Christmas, so I need a mixture of both. By now I have forgotten what I was thinking about during the week, and many of the bits and pieces I have saved I now don't want to really use. Also, each family including mine have daily life and family problems that you can't write about here without leaving yourself or others open for more embarrassment or maybe even hurt.
I really enjoy my Facebook page of Craft Made Easy as nearly every day I place an item on there from these pages and this is where I get a response from readers, saying IF they like what it is, however, no-one ever comments and so feedback is minimal (at least it is positive+++) I now have 258 LIKES on Craft Made Easy so I am quite pleased with this. This week I have commenced writing a note of thanks and explaining a little about my page etc. to the new 'Likers'. I thought putting a face to the site might add to the interest. (One can only hope!)
Every second Saturday my son brings his gorgeous children to lunch and it is always a joy for both my mother and me. I love to see both my children and their beautiful off spring and I always try to prepare different little goodies for little mouths. This week we had Tacos, (so many leftovers, that my Mother and I had to have Tacos for dinner too) Dessert was a sticky (not meant to be) Hedgehog slice and a large plate of fruit.

My eldest grand daughter was quizzing me about the next school holidays and wondering if she could come and stay for a night or so as we will then have time to cook and craft together. I have all but promised she can stay at some stage in the Christmas break. Seven (7) year olds are growing up so quickly these day that you don't dare miss any opportunity. Although I feel this applies to every age group including my 32 year old son and his 30 year old sister.
On to more interesting topics, the topics I have found for you this week!
Recipe of the Week:
I love slow cooker meals when busy, put them on, forget about them and dinner is ready.
Craft of the Week:
Easy DIY Necklace by Margot
This is a very pretty necklace and the designer used Beadalon beads which are readily available. However, these pattern are only meant as a guide. You can use your own imagination and create as you see fit. Please post your designs and ideas here in comments section or on Facebook when you finish.
Children's Activity of the Week:
Spiders Made from Mini Pumpkins
I don't agree with Halloween, but I loved this craft, so use it any way you wish. Great for little fingers. Instead of using mini pumpkins you could use imagination and use balls or whatever you have available.
This one will be great for the little ones, but maybe closer to Christmas as little fingers will slowly pick their way though the tree.
|This is a lovely decoration or gift to make.|
Please email me your community dates and I will include and promote them for you.
