Lockdown continues…

Hi and good morning from a sunny and boiling hot Bedfordshire! I just wanted to check in with everyone and just update on what I have been doing recently. We’re now allowed to see one friend outside our household, so obviously I have met up with Horan twice recently, at a social distance of 2 metres of course. We talk about all the random stuff, such as how long are elephants pregnant for? All the important stuff, obviously. And we walked past the field where a herd of cows practically chased me away a few weeks ago! Have I mentioned that yet?! It was hilarious, yet terrifying at the same time! Darcey was clinging onto my hand her for life and tried (but failed) to stop herself from crying in terror, Marnie said she never wanted to see a cow again in her life and Matt couldn’t stop his nervous laughing! A great story to tell the girls when they’re older!!

I have been researching stuff about the underactive thyroid I have, because recently I have been losing a lot of hair! Turns out I didn’t really take anything in about it so will visit the doctor when lockdown is finished. I don’t think it will be right for me to go in and see them right now, considering what is going on. I miss my long thick hair so much! As much as I hated it in the summer, I miss styling my hair other than putting it up in a bun or ponytail all the time.

I’ve now got an Instagram account for Bear&Moo ( @bear_and_moo_ ) and I’m posting more photos on there with the makes and crafts I’m working on, so head over and send some love, please and thank you!

I’m hoping to get some ‘How To’ videos on the go soon, so do also look out for those.

Also, have you noticed a little refresh on the site? Revamping the font and colour scheme is easier on the Mac rather than the mobile app.

It’s starting now!

Hi everyone. Starting week seven of lockdown and I’m still feeling positive about the situation. Bear&Moo is beginning to blossom and it’s looking good. A few tweaks and I’ll be ready! I’ve started small with hair bows for the girls. The picture advertises Disney and Peppa pig brands, but I will not be selling these. They are for personal use only because of licensing laws. I’m not dealing with the chance of being sued.

The girls love them and for my first project on the sewing machine I recently bought, I think they’re adorable! I have purchased other styles of fabric from Rosie’s craft shop. First time ordering from them, but they do a fantastic range of fabrics for crafters. So I will definitely go back and buy more!

I’ve also started making (shhhhh) Christmas tree baubles… what else is there to do with all the free time I have now?!

Using Cricut own brand permanent vinyl these look so good!

I’m thinking of doing videos on how to make these, but is it something needed? I mean, there are already a lot of videos on how to make them. Will anyone watch mine? Only one way to find out, I guess!
