25 Ways to Green Your Home 🌵 (+printable!)

Following up on number 23 🙂

This is such an amazing post and I think it should be spread as far as it possibly can be.

Happy Tuesday Everyonee!

I love going 💚green💚 and saving energy, power, water…whatever it is- with little things that if we all did would make a big difference! And I also love planting things, keeping succulents and cactuses (get used to it, I prefer it to ‘cacti’! 😉 ) so when I had the idea to make a post about turning things green- in both ways- I was so excited to write ittt!

So I’ve made a whole list of things you can do to make your home more green- or add more greenery to it! I hope you enjoy it, and let me know which number is your favourite!

  1. Buy a small cactus, plant it in a pot and sit it on a windowsill!
  2. Read an adventure book
  3. Draw a treehouse in a huge tree
  4. Make a hedgehog house!
  5. Find a pile of old magazines (or from…

Slightly Different

Slightly Different

Hello Everybody!

Today’s post is slightly different.

I was looking through Pinterest  when I found something amazing.

I love miniatures and also architecture. So miniature houses really excite me.

And this really really really excited me:

Modern House 2 by Jim Magni and Joan Behnke

It’s so amazing!!! ☼.☼ (。♥‿♥。)

I want it so bad!

I don’t think i have ever mentioned this before but I love to watch MyFroggyStuff on YouTube.

Her minitures are amazing and I have made some great stuff under her instruction.

towaco5oh recently shared a post with a couple of videos in it.

The channel thay came from is: The Square to Spare. There are some really good crafts on there that I may have to have a look at following.

This is my fave that I’ve looked at so far. I also love the below one.

Anyways sorry for the short post. I don’t have much time on my hands.

Seeya!

Volunteer Work

Volunteer Work

So as promised last week this post is all about my current volunteer job with the RDA.

At RDA, our horses and ponies provide therapy, achievement and enjoyment to people with disabilities all over the UK.

Our network of 500 volunteer groups organise activities such as riding, carriage driving, vaulting, show jumping and Hippotherapy to up to 28,000 people each year.

We have been carrying out our life-changing activities for over 40 years, and take great pride in the exceptional standard of our instructors and volunteers (18,000 in all).

We offer activities for all age groups and, wherever possible, to people with any disability – and you’re just as likely to find an RDA Group in an urban setting as a rural one.

We rely on voluntary help, donations and legacies to deliver our services.

Taken from the RDA website > RDA

I started volunteer work with a local RDA group last summer and have no intention of stopping anytime soon.

My group teaches and provides therapy for a class of disabled kids every Monday morning.

I do have to get up at seven every Monday morning but it’s worth it. I get there at about half nine and if needed, groom and tack one of the four ponies.

Then I walk one of the ponies around to warm them up and then line up with the others at half ten when the bus arrives. I then proceed to walk alongside my chosen pony holding on to a child’s leg and ankle and helping them learn how to control a pony.

It sounds incredibly dull when you say it like that but it is actually a really rewarding and satisfactory thing to see the children learning and enjoying themselves. Sometimes it can be hard or annoying because some of the kids are more challenging than others. But it’s always worth it.

As I said in my last post it also helps me a little.

I am so glad that my mum found the RDA last year and that they took me on.

Blogger Recognition Award!

Blogger Recognition Award!

So todays post was going to be behind the scenes of my recent photoshoot but then I found a comment in my inbox telling me that I had been nominated for the Blogger Recognititon Award!

blogger-recognition-award-logo-2017

The rules that coincide with this award:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  2. Make a post about the award – I mean…. Who wouldnt???
  3. Give a brief recap of how your blog began
  4. Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers
  5. Select 15 other bloggers you wish to give the award to
  6. Comment on each blog, letting them know of their nomination and providing a link to the post.

I was nominated by the lovely filliefanatic at TinyHorseTalk.wordpress.com. Thankyou so much fillie!

If you like miniatures and model horses you should so go check her blog out. She also does a lot of crochet 🙂

StableStoreys started about two years ago when I realised that I was spending too much time playing virtual horse games instead of using the internet to let my creativity and love of horses big and mini be known to the world.

I started out with mostly model horses and now and then some real horses but now I kind of add little bits of other craft and life stuff in there.

StableStoreys has led me to make quite a few internet friends and also to get into YouTube.

Now for some advice: (Warning: My advise may be a bit crap)

  1. It’s a good idea to really try to make your blog or website name relate to your content. If you are blogging about craft don’t name your blog something like ”Fishnets and camping” Sorry bad example 🙂
  2. Try to use any social media you use to your advantage. Post links to your blog and put up sneak peeks.

I might not actually be following fifteen blogs but lets see:

 

cedarwoodstables at CWS Stables & Studio

Nichelle at Desktop Stables

Tricia at TriciaBookerPhotography

Karen at Draw and Shoot

Leah at shoestringstable

Roxanne at the Magical Canopy

Clock Work Dragons at Clockwork Dragon Designs

Inky at InkyOcean

Scroll Vault at ScrollVault

Scroll Quest at ScrollQuests

Lorrie at The Eff Stop

Rebekah at HorsFeathersBlog

Any hoo…

I can’t express how pleased I am to have received two blogging awards for this blog. I never thought I’d get noticed that much XD

Seeya!
