About Us


Hello and welcome to Create, Make & Bake. The blog is written mainly by me, Lydia, but there will be lots of posts written by my girls as they will be doing most of the crafts and learning to cook new things as we go along but you will only hear from my hubby Tom on rare occasions.


I started this blog to share some ideas and information on encouraging children to learn to cook and bake, and hopefully develop a love of all things crafty. We are also trying to show our girls that there is no reason why they can't learn any craft, even woodwork and other tradionally male dominated crafts.  


Myself and Tom are grandparents to the two girls but we have guardianship of them so this is a permanent arrangement. Our girls Abbie 11 and  Jess 9, are both home educated so we have lots of time in our day to make things. The blog is officially about making, baking and creating thing as the name suggests but we might occasionally go off on a tangent.  


Not much else to say apart from the fact we share our lives with 3 large dogs, 2 chickens, 3 rats and a tank of tropical fish :-)
