Today, Ted has been in the mood to make all things Christmas – pretty much all day, so there are going to be a host of Christmas posts coming up soon.

Ted is trying to keep them a surprise until the big day itself. Continue reading
Here are Ted’s super cute cothespeg snowmen. We have been wanting to make some clothes peg snowmen for ages, and just before Christmas we finally got round to making them. They were simple and great fun to make, and we have been using them as book marks and paper clips. They look really sweet and all have their own personality and character.
