Ooh, look at us socialising and sharing!
Hi, I’m Natasha.
Ooh, look at me welcoming you to my creative blog, where I will introduce you to all the fun, creative and crazy things I get up to.
I am a wife and a mother to my 3 children and 2 dogs, so you can imagine how chaotic it can get in our house.
“Ooh, look at me!” is an ironic name because I actually don’t like drawing attention to myself or my family, yet I really like inspiring others to be creative because I know how fulfilling it can be. The name also comes from something silly we used to say years ago and it kind of just stuck with me.
Check out our About Us page for more information about us and what we do.
I hope this brings you creative joy
Let’s get yarning and creative!
Ooh, look at me going on a creative journey with you!

Art Inspiration - Christmas Crafts Blogmas
As home schoolers, we love to find new and different ways to learn that are fun, with the potential of being messy. Every year we spend the whole of December focused on Christmas. We started a little early this year, though.
We started with painting using acrylic paints and canvases. I showed them how to paint stripes in one colour that go from light to dark shades. Once they had dried they each added some items to create a Christmas themed piece of art. They were really focused on it and thoroughly enjoyed the activity. I feel they achieve better pieces of work when they know beforehand what they are painting, rather than telling them to just paint anything.
We bought some Christmas craft making kits from the pound shop recently and they gave them a go. We chose the reindeer and sleigh and the snowman kits. They even followed the instructions themselves this time and only asked for help if they got stuck. These were just pure simple fun with an end result of having items to add to our Christmas decorations.
I have included pictures below of our results (For a description, just hover over a picture). I have separated them out into Korey, Kameron, Kayleigh and mine (Natasha). There are also some pictures of our art supplies that we used.
I hope this brings you creative joy and inspires you to start your own creative journey.
Please share and connect with us on social media. I would love to hear from you and see your creations.
Let’s get creating!
