Keeping Up #abc123challenge

There was one comment on last weeks round up post from my blogger friend who said “reading through the lines it’s been a tough week”. She is spot on, I don’t like to dwell on it much though because I like to write off the bad days as just that, …

The Long Game

I need to keep telling myself about the long game. Everything I am working towards is my long game goal. The reason I blog, the reason I create, the reason I make. The Long Game. What am I going on about I hear you ask? The time when my kids …

J is for Journaling with Toddlers

When the Robot turned two I thought it would be fun to start a journal with him. Journaling with toddlers can only be fun right!? Journals and journaling is something I’ve always loved doing, keeping a diary on and off throughout my childhood and now with my bullet journal I …

The Patchwork Cat

One of my bucket list items this year was to make keepsake quilts for my kids out of their baby grows.  Getting totally sidetracked from this though I have ended up making a cuddly patchwork cat toy from the Robots tiny clothes. While I was making it I got very …

H is for Home Play Day

Sometimes you just get stuck at home on a home play day.  We’re not very good at being in all day.  If it’s the weekend then it’s even worse. Dave is hopeless at staying in and we’re always on the go at the weekend because of it. There are times …

G is For Growing Cress

Before I had kids I used to allotment and volunteer in GirlGuiding.  I always used to want to share my love of the outdoors with my Brownies and Guides and would often find ways to get them growing things.  Most often growing cress! Unfortunately due to moving and the demands …

F is for Foam Shapes

This post is not for the faint hearted! It’s not even really the best how to post.  Pinterest perfect it is not.  It’s an experience, one that makes me think why do I even bother.  Foam shapes, no, no, no. This reminds me a bit of the time I tried …

It’s Time To Party – A Tiny Dresden Party

Everyone loves a party don’t they?  The children shouldn’t get all the fun with balloons, we adults need a bit of fun in our lives!  In January this fun came to the land of Two Tiny Makes in the form of Diedras from Quilty Obsessions tiny dresden party. A whole …

E is for Emergency Vehicles 

The Robot absolutely loves vehicles. All of them, cars, trains, bin lorries, post vans, you name them he loves them! There is one thing though that gets him every time. Emergency vehicles.  They’re the best.  I don’t think he really understands the severity of them yet, that they’re normally heading …

Send A Little Love Swap

Send a little love. I know Valentine’s Day has been and gone but if you can’t talk about love everyday then something has gone horribly wrong!   The act of loving someone or something is ever-present in all our lives hopefully.  I have a lot of love to give in …

Winter Snow Christmas Sensory Box

When I received some happy mail last month with the little foam package material in, I didn’t get disheartened by the mess opening it created. I turned it into opportunity by creating a Winter Snow Christmas Sensory Box.  What FUN! Squirreling the bits away into a box for a few …

Quilt Blocks -100 Day Challenge  

If you’ve followed Two Tiny Hands for a while now you might have noticed I quite like a challenge. 2017 has been a whole different challenge to the blog challenges I set myself in 2016, heck, I’ve grown a baby! Since discovering the wonders of the quilting world over on Instagram I have come across a few quilt block challenges that I really want to take part in next year.

Happy Days September

I can’t quite believe it’s the last day in September today.  It’s gone so quick and I don’t really feel like it’s been fun packed and as full as it could have been.  It’s all been about survival and making it through each day at the time.  We’ve definitely been …

A Pipe Dream, Reality or Hobby?

Becoming a parent, one that stays at home, does something to your confidence, it wrecks it, at least mine anyway.  I feel like I’ve become a little bit socially awkward and I often stay away from situations where I’ve got to talk to people I don’t know.   That makes me …
