DIY Christmas scented candles with BlissMakes

If there’s one thing I love about Christmas, it’s the warm, delicious fragrances that linger in the air as we bustle about preparing for the big day. Even though it’s the height of summer over here (I’m slurping down an Icy Pole as I type this), the smell of pine and mulled cider hit me

I know it’s been a loooong time since I made a freebie for you guys. It’s not that I don’t love you, I promise! I’ve just found that time has been getting away from me as we get closer to the silly season, and especially with a toddler in the house. In spite of this,

DIY leather pendants for Curbly

Someone please tell me how it’s almost the end of August? That can’t be right. The first cherry blossoms have bloomed in our backyard and the weather’s getting warmer every day… but surely it was the middle of winter only last week?!
