Dinosaur Cross Stitch

I used to do a lot of cross stitch when I was younger, but I feel I had a little more patience back then. Also I didn’t have the likes of the Internet to distract me…

My friends birthday was coming up, so I wanted to make her something a little different. Thankfully she has a love for dinosaurs, so this made the subject matter of the cross stitch easy to decide.

Hard to say how long this actually took me to complete, most likely a couple of solid hours. I managed to stretch it out over two weeks whilst I was unwell, so not bad going.


I also managed to pick up the perfect card to go with my creation. Happy Birthday Katy!


Scoff Box Unboxing

Scoff Box is a new monthly subscription box for those who love retro and classic sweets! Each month they package up and post you an impressive selection for anyone with a sweet tooth.Screen Shot 2016-04-13 at 11.54.43Subscription starts from £12.99 for one month, with 3 and 6 month prepay and gift options also available.

I must admit when my box arrived, I was surprised at how big it was. Once inside, all of the sweets were bundled together with yellow tissue paper and yellow ribbon. When I removed these to see what treats were there, I was amazed by the amount you got. £12.99 might seem more expensive than some other boxes, however you certainly get value for month that’s for sure! Also it’s free shipping!

Other than the Chocolate Honeycomb and the Jelly Babies, all of the other sweets are new to me. Sadly I’m not a fan of Reese’s Pieces, but the husband can have those. Very much looking forward to digging into these, I would say they will keep me going for a while but my husband does have a very sweet tooth. Might have to ration him.

In conclusion, this is a really good box and you won’t be disappointed by it’s contents.
