Getting griddy, with Chickaniddy!

Bright & cheerful LO’s with a kit

So this month I decided to try working with a kit. I’m a bit useless at this so it was a bit of a personal challenge for me! And, I don’t have a picture of what I used before I started either I’m sorry.  I didn’t really know what I would want to use for my kit, […]
