What are you doing in March?
Crafting, that's what.
We've joined forces with Spotlight to officially declare March as Craft Month. Why? Well, why not? There are a million reasons for getting creative; here are just some of them:
  • It's fun (for all ages)
  • It's a cheap and easy way of sprucing up your home
  • You can create something unique and personal
  • It's a great way of practicing mindfulness
  • You make memories, not just an object (soppy, but true)
  • It gives you a sense of achievement
  • There's literally a craft out there for everyone
  • If you're good at it, it can be a nice little earner
  • It improves your patience and co-ordination
So, now that you're fully on board with Craft Month, here's how you can get involved!
Join us for two DIY Facebook Live events where we'll be having a digital crafternoon (OK, morning) making glorious boho dreamcatchers and on-trend pom poms.
