Hodge Podge Profile Pic

Hello!  I’m Gude (Jude-with-a-G); a theme-park-loving, gin-drinking, paper-folding, stationery addicted mum to two small boys (AKA Pickle & Chops).

Crafting makes me happy.  I guess it makes you happy too, or you wouldn’t be here.  Hodge Podge is a place to share easy crafting activities and projects for and with the kids.  I’ve also included some cross-stitch & origami tutorials (because I love origami – its so cheap and has so many uses/variations) and gift ideas. After all, what could be more fabulous than making cool stuff for your friends and family?

I also have a soft spot for party, Christmas  and wedding crafts!

So please, make yourself at home, take a look around, check out the how-tos.  Let me know if you’d like to see anything particular here and I’ll do my best to oblige.

Do you blog about crafting?  Origami?  Arty activities with/for kids?  Please contact me if you’d be interested in a guest post (take a look at my guest post guidelines first)!

For  companies, PR, competition and branded post enquiries, please take a look at my work with me page.
