Where did 2013 go?!

I can't believe that 2013 is almost over, how did that happen?? I hope everyone had a great Christmas, we had 13 here for Christmas Dinner which was nice but totally chaotic  In fact, the last part of this year has been rather chaotic with lots going on and not much time for this poor neglected space. Hopefully 2014 will be a little less chaotic and I will actually sew/make something that I am happy to share on here rather than the half hearted/last minute panic crafting that has taken over!

Here is a small round up of my better/more popular crafty attempts for 2013:

Most popular (double the page views of the next one!): DIY Minion Cake

In second place: DIY Origami Bunny

Third Place: DIY Men's Dress Shirt to Ladies Blouse:

Fourth Place: DIY Fabric Origami Bow

Fifth Place: DIY Ninja Costume

Hopefully next year will see some more fun crafty projects, Big E is 8 in 3 weeks so there will be a cake post coming soon, at the moment it is to be a Star Wars Angry Birds cake....!

I hope everyone has a great Hogmanay, see you in 2014!

Linking to some of these fab parties!


  1. Enjoy those chaotic days of huge family gatherings. Now that my family is spread, and the elder ones gone, I really miss those days. And they make for the best family stories!

    Thanks for sharing such wonderful things this year. Happy New Year!

  2. I really love your cake, and, as Santa brought Small Boy the DVD of Despicable Me this year - and as he LOVES it! - I may be referring to this post come birthday time next year! It's probably easier to make than an Octonaught cake! :)

  3. That minion cake is seriously amazing! Can't wait to see what you craft in 2014! Happy New Year, Alison!

  4. I love the shirt you changed into a blouse. Can't wait to see the next cake.
    Happy Crafty New Year to you and your family
