Hi, Local Milk friends! Merrilee here from Mer Mag Blog, where we have fun playing creatively and ideally with things easily found or already on hand! You can also find me sharing creative craft ideas on my Instagram and sewing dolls and illustrating books and printables over at the Merrrilee Liddiard Shop. Today I’ll be guiding you through how to make a simple nature crown with your little ones.
Hello, Local Milk readers! This week on our Fresh Milk round-up we have put together a list of 10 slow-living inspired gift ideas for a Mother’s Day at home.
