Etsy moments.....


It's been ages since I had a browse on Etsy - and then pass on my findings to you - my excuse for thumbing(!) aimlessly around the Internet -  but yesterday I found myself drawn to the site ... I was meant to be checking some work rosters.... but ......

hmmmmm... hope my boss doesn't read this blog (note to self to check this out).....

Anyway, I found a new category dedicated to Tutorials, Kits & Recipes within the craft section and found some brill ideas which would make some great & unusual gifts......check these out...


Try a mini DIY Farmer's Cheese Kit and enjoy fresh cheese in half an hour! from the UrbanCheeseCraft


The perfect gift for that beer enthusiast that you know! Or hey, why not, yourself! From HopShots


Do you love popcorn on movie night? Hosting a party with a popcorn bar? Then try these gourmet popcorn kernels and popcorn seasoning kit from Dellcovespices - they will ship to the UK from USA


Great for birthdays, offices, gifts, housewarmings, yourself and educational presents for your kids - grow your own kits from Grownfromhome they will ship worldwide from California.

You could however, do what I have done in the past and made up 'kits' as presents. My last 'kit' was cookies-in-a-jar which I made up for a friend as a present. You just grab a nice jar and fill it with all the 'dry' ingredients you would need to make some cookies and I popped the instructions on a parcel label attached to the wires at the top. It was so well received that I might come up with a Christmas version for presents this year and maybe attach a Christmas cookie cutter to it......hmmm..

If you want some cookie in the jar ideas or would like to just buy the kit made up check out Katie Bakes website.
