This morning we had so much fun hosting a Spooky Virtual Halloween Craft party from the comfort and safety of everyone's homes! All of the participants were sent one of our craft packs before the event date so they were all ready to enjoy Crafts and Giggles on the day!
The children went to so much effort getting into the Halloween spirit by dressing up and decorating their homes. Accompanied by a grown up the children began getting crafty with Katie!
Each child got to jazz up a number of spooky Halloween crafts, from spooky masks to wands! All of the children were very creative and came up with some imaginative designs!
We would like to thank everyone who joined us! With these unprecedented and difficult times we are all facing, it is so great that we can still come together and enjoy Crafts and Giggles!
For our future Virtual Craft Events Keep an eye here and on our Facebook page!
Last Thursday (during Mental Health Week) we had the most enjoyable evening hosting a Virtual Flower Crown Making Event for a corporate evening with Oaklin to raise money for YoungMinds.
All 25 colleagues received their Craft Packs before the event date and came together on Microsoft Teams to have fun over Crafts and Giggles!
At the start of the event one of the Partners introduced the event, and discussed the importance of Mental Health within the workplace. We followed on by saying that being creative is a great way of taking care of your Mental Health and wellbeing, and that is why we love what we do!
It was a relaxed and happy evening. Some of the colleagues families took part in the crafty fun, making it such a welcoming event.
Everyone made a beautiful keepsake Flower Crown that they can wear with pride for years to come. The team seemed to have a great time, here is what they thought:
"We had great fun with Katie building flower crowns to raise money for #YoungMinds on an online corporate evening! Everyone, at all levels of seniority, had a laugh and joined in. Katie’s energy and enthusiasm came shining through and she was completely professional, working tirelessly to get the craft kits out in time for the event to all our staff in their various locations. Oaklin"
Thank you to Oaklin for having us. If you are looking to do something creative and different with your work colleagues our Virtual Craft Experience could be the answer! Get in touch for more info!
On Saturday 15 lovely hens enjoyed getting crafty with our DIY Flower Crown Making Kits. Sadly we were not able to attend due to the Government restrictions, but they still wanted to be able to enjoy some crafty fun!
We posted out 15 vibrant Flower Crown Making Kits. Each kit had everything each person would need to make a beautiful keepsake crown, including clear step by step instructions. Yesterday we received this incredible email from the party organiser:
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you! The hen party on Saturday went amazingly and the flower crown part was just lovely and every single person really enjoyed it. It really was the perfect activity for us all, especially after so long of not being able to do very many different things. All the packs and materials you sent were super clear and easy to follow, and although we missed having a member of your team there to expertly guide us, I think it added to the fun and everyone ended up with a very lovely flower crown.
Thank you again, I would (and will) highly recommend your business to any future hens or gatherings”
Despite the restrictions we are so so happy that the hen party got to enjoy Crafts and Giggles. During this difficult time it is so important to have things to look forward to and enjoy. If you are interested in our DIY Craft Party Kits for your event, get in touch!
Happy Monday! We hope everyone is enjoying the warm sunny days, and the holidays. We don't like to use the C word during the Summer but Christmas is fast approaching!

We hope everyone is keeping safe and well in what continues to be a difficult time for so many people. Yesterday our mood was lifted meeting 9 lovely people during our very first Virtual Craft Party!
It was so so lovely to still be able to share our love of crafts with such wonderful people despite being in lockdown. All 9 people joined in and learnt how to make their very own bright and colourful silk flower crowns! They all did amazingly well! The feedback from the Virtual Craft Party was beyond our expectations, some even asked if we will be offering more, which was music to our ears!
"Thank you for a great morning. It was a really lovely relaxing start to the weekend. A bit of escapism from the current environment. Thank you again"
A big thank you to everyone who took part, we loved every second! We will be offering more Virtual Craft Parties very soon so keep an eye out! If you are interested in having one get in touch!
As it is International Children's Book Day we thought it was the perfect day to combine our favourite children's book "Stick Man" by Julia Donaldson with Crafts! So we have made our very own Stick Family! We wanted to share this idea with you so you can have a go too! This is the perfect crafty activity to do as a family. (Please ensure children are supervised at all times.) Check out our method below:
What craft materials will I need?
We LOVED doing this crafty activity, and Katie's three year old loved it just as much! She has been playing with her stick family ever since! We would love to see your Stick Family creations so please #craftsandgiggles when sharing your makes so we can see them! Happy crafting! XX
We know that so many of our 2020 brides have regrettably had to postpone their weddings to 2021 due to the Coronavirus. We feel for you so much, as we know just how much effort, love and care goes into planning your special day.

As we sit here with you all in the most unknown and unprecedented situation facing COVID-19, we are looking to the future as well as taking each day as it comes.
First and foremost we hope everyone is taking care of themselves and each other. If anything, this pandemic is making us appreciate what’s in front of our noses. We need to work together and ride the COVID-19 storm together with compassion and love.
We would be lying if we said we weren’t worried for the future, and the knock on effect it may have. In fact I just has a mini melt down because of the uncertainty we are facing.
What is keeping us going is the support and understanding of all of our wonderful clients and workshop providers. We say it all of the time but we couldn’t do it without you all!
For all of our lovely bride’s to be out there…if you are having to postpone your 2020 weddings we feel for you so so much. We are here for you and your bridal party. Please just pick up the phone for a chat, a cry, or anything. We are here to support you in any way we can.
We will stay positive, and are determined as a business to come out of this stronger than ever! We hope to continue to provide the Nation with Crafts and Giggles for many years to come!
Yesterday the lovely Anissa headed to Frieda's Tearoom in Bournemouth to host a Vintage Accessories Making Party for a wonderful hen party. It was the most perfect setting for some crafty fun and the afternoon tea was out of this world!
All of the craft hen party made beautiful Vintage themed accessorises. From headbands to brooches. They all learnt how to make stunning corsages using basic hand sewing techniques. Anissa was there throughout to help and inspire!
Our Vintage Accessories sessions are perfect fun for a hen party, or a birthday party looking for something crafty to do. It is suitable for all ages and abilities and everyone will come away with beautiful handmade keepsakes.
