DID YOU HAPPILY JUNK MODEL WITH CEREAL BOXES AND TOILET ROLL TUBES AS A CHILD? DID YOU PAINT WITH CHEERFUL ABANDON WHEN YOU WERE LITTLE? OR MAYBE YOU WERE THE ONE WITH THE VIVID IMAGINATION THAT THOUGHT UP THE EXCITING GAMES TO PLAY OR YOU LOVED HELPING WITH BAKING?
CREATIVITY IS SOMETHING THAT WE’RE BORN WITH BUT MANY OF US LOSE.
OR MAYBE YOU STILL ARE CREATIVE BECAUSE SOME OF US NEVER LOSE THE JOY OF CREATIVITY. OR PERHAPS SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY YOU BECAME SELF CONSCIOUS AND DECIDED YOU WERE NOT CREATIVE?
MAYBE BAKING IS YOUR THING OR PERHAPS YOU’RE CREATIVE WITH WORDS. MAYBE THERE’S SOMETHING NEW YOU’D LIKE TO TRY?
PERHAPS YOU MAKE YOUR HOME COSY AND INVITING WITH CHARITY SHOP OR GOODWILL FINDS AND ARE CREATIVE IN THE WAY YOU SHOP BUT NEVER THOUGHT YOU WERE CREATIVE.
MAYBE YOU’RE CREATIVE IN THE WAY YOU LOVE OTHERS? MAYBE YOU’RE THE ONE THAT THINKS OF LITTLE WAYS TO ENCOURAGE THOSE AROUND YOU WITH LETTERS AND CARDS. THAT’S AN AREA I’D LOVE TO GROW IN, I’M USUALLY THE ONE WHO’S TWO WEEKS LATE WITH YOUR BIRTHDAY CARD: IF I REMEMBER AT ALL!!
JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T DO CRAFTS OR AREN’T AN AMAZING ARTIST THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU’RE NOT CREATIVE. SO I DON’T WANT ANYONE TO THINK THAT THIS SPACE ISN’T FOR THEM.
WHY NOT ASK GOD TO SHOW YOU THE WAYS HE’S MADE YOU CREATIVE AND GIVE THOSE GIFTS TO HIM ASKING HIM TO HELP YOU USE THEM FOR HIS GLORY AND TO BLESS OTHERS.

WELCOME – let me introduce myself…
I’m so glad to have you along. My name is Sharon, I’m a follower of Jesus, a wife to Howard, Mum to Abi and Josh, Mil to Paul and Nanny to little Zach. And in case you hadn’t already gathered I’ve always loved to create.
My earliest memories revolve around baking and making at home with both my Mum and Dad and at infants school with my amazing creative teacher Mrs Morton that taught me from age 4-7.
When chronic illnesses, restricted mobility, constant fatigue and pain and brain fog came one after the other, creativity along with my faith and family were the things that kept me smiling!
I do Art & Crafts and Baking with a home-schooled family of 7 and borrow my nieces from time to time now that mine are grown up! One of happiest places is surrounded by children and a creative mess!!
Maybe you just need a way to unwind after a busy day. Or maybe you would also appreciate something to keep you quietly busy to help you through chronic illness. Perhaps you’d like to renew the joy you found in colour and mess as a child or to create with your children?
Or maybe you’d like to try some new easy and tasty recipes? To whip up some quick an simple treats with your kids!
Whatever you reason for stopping by please stick around, I’d love for you to join me in making this a space where we encourage each other to find joy in these creative outlets together.
My aim is for the bakes and makes I share here to be relatively simple but delicious. I’m also aiming for bakes and makes for all ages and stages to enjoy.
There will be affiliate links throughout my site. If you use these to purchase anything from those shops it doesn’t cost you any more but earns me a small commission which will help me both to run this site and keep all proceeds from my shop going to Mombasa Mission. (After Etsy fees and Postage costs.)
These will mostly be family recipes and recipes I’ve created or adapted over years to make the best version I can! There’ll be everything from cookies and ice cream to fridge cakes and smoothies.
These will mostly be easy and budget friendly projects, Upcycling clothing and thrift / charity shop finds, quick sewing projects for the family and home, Diys, etc
I’ll also be sharing some of what I make for my Etsy shop. Also some of what I make I’ll also be selling in the shop if you’d rather just buy than make!
