Hello! I'm Fern, age 26, crafting addict and proud owner of The Wellington Boot jewellery shop.
I love all things arts and crafts and aim to become competent (at least!) in as many crafts as possible. I also love photography, design, baking, Disney, musicals and travel!
I hope you enjoy my blog and thanks for visiting.

If you are starting to think about food and yummy goodies for crimbo then take a look at my roundup of recipes which includes traditional recipes, turkey roasts, candy, desserts, cakes, drinks and more!
I love this dainty advent calendar and the idea of using clear glass baubles for the 24-day-countdown.
Click here to see close-up photos of the different baubles to see the pretty and sparkly contents. There are date night ideas written inside each bauble, but you could include any type of message you like.
This awesome decoration is made entirely from flat pieces of wood and straightforward (jigsaw or scroll saw) cuts, so would actually be a fantastic project for a woodworking beginner to attempt. The pieces all cleverly slot together, and you can find all of the details for making it here.
Macraméis back in vogue, so why no try your hand at this impressive knotting technique? This project requires lots of rope, some beads and 2 lengths of wooden dowel, and you can find the tutorial here.
I think this art project is very clever, and the results look like etched metal don't you think? Yet it's just a smart technique using aluminium foil pressed over real leaves, which you can read more about here.
