Ted here has grudgingly agreed to model the latest additions to my props stash prior which I am getting ready for the launch of my newborn photography. They are made from the tiniest scraps of fabric, bits of lace my Nan bought me when I was a kid (I always loved to sew) and beads I have had kicking around from somewhere or other. Love it, using up stash and giving things a purpose.

NB Ted would like it known that he is a boy bear.

Crafting from Scraps – my life…

It occurs that crafting from scraps is a bit of a metaphor for my every day life. Now that sounds a bit Oliver Twist miserable and I don’t mean it that way – I’m very happy but I’m always trying to stretch things a bit further, get a bit of extra life out of things etc .

Along these lines, I regularly participate in surveys for a few companies and I’m also part of Bzzagent which means that I get to try products for free and then tell people about them as part of word of mouth marketing. It gives me a chance to try out products before I buy and I like to share so I thought I’d tell you about the latest campaign for Activia Pouring Yoghurt. With the campaign, you get a voucher for a free box and I chose to go and pick up the vanilla flavour. I tried it on cereal in the morning and it was very tasty and creamy. I think I used a bit too much in relation to the cereal the first time as I poured it as though it was milk and that meant that I had a lot of yoghurt left at the end of the cereal but the next day I got the balance right. I don’t actually like milk which means that I never get to eat cereal although I do quite like it (well I do sometime just eat it out of the box but I’m not sure you’re supposed to admit to that or not). Plus it cuts out the easiest breakfast option and means that I don’t always bother with it (OK I know it’s not hard to make toast but sometimes I’m just in too much of a rush) so for me the Activia pouring yoghurt really fills a need. It means that I can grab a quick and tasty breakfast, plus it offers extra benefits in terms of digestive health. I haven’t been using it long enough to establish whether I can feel any benefit in that regard but, for me, it is worth it even without that. If you like the sound of trying out products for free, then you can visit www.bzzagent.co.uk to find out more (it’s free to register and take part)
