Hi I am Rachel Hirst & this is my blog! I love to tell the world about my family and our daily antics. I have been married to my husband for so long and I love him to pieces. We have been so lucky to have two wonderful children both boys Lewis & Jake. Things I love are as follows: Blogging Daily, Writing, Reading, Beauty, Fashion, Craft, Food & Gaming. Previously I have been a community manager for Made for Mums, following that I have created this blog to hopefully entertain you a little. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and I look forward to every comment you may post.


  1. Danielle Stevenson says:

    My top craft tip is that I always wear latex gloves when using pen or glue. I always used to smudge my work, or get glue everywhere, so this is really good to prevent this and to help get a good grip when colouring or painting a piece.

    I always look for bits & pieces at Car Boot Sales to use for crafts. I once found a load of craft stamps, mainly new, which were very cheap.
