A couple of weeks ago Tom, Mabli and I hopped on the train to Reading to spend the day with the Command Strips team. Myself as well as four other bloggers (Geraldine, Poppy, Sarah and Hannah) had been invited to be ambassadors for the brand, we were to spend the day styling for some projects we have planned for the rest of the year (more on that later!).
With Mabli only 6 weeks old she needed to come along with me so I could feed her but also because I couldn't be without her so soon. The team were so welcoming and accommodating and a baby makes for a great ice breaker when making friends. I'm so thankful to Tom for supporting my work and helping me so much in these early days with the baby, he was able to come with us and watch her whilst I got to work (I love this shot I sneakily took of them). The location was a gorgeous stately house that was a living home to a family of four boys, it was so big I kept getting lost in it!
Mabli was such a good little thing as she generally is (unless its the half an hour between 8.30 and 9pm when she gets the grumps ha!), so chilled and smily!
(how beautiful is this pink set up in the downstairs kitchen of the home we were at??)
When I first heard about Command Brand from 3M I was immediately taken back to my art degree, I used some of their products for hanging my final major pieces funny enough. They are the perfect thing for anyone wishing to do some home improvements without using anything major like drills. You can hang anything from children's mobiles to picture frames and more. Wilf asked for a mobile for his room after he saw Mabli had one so Tom and Wilf crafted a sea life one and hung it above his bed (we used this product for this), so sweet!
I know if you are renting you often have to check with your landlord about putting up pictures or marking walls so these make for a great alternative. You simply stick them on then pull the tab down afterwards to remove when needed meaning you don't actually pull at the paint work.
(A sneak peek of a craft I have coming up for you!)
It was so inspiring seeing all the projects my fellow bloggers were whipping up around the stately home we were at and I can't wait to see them go live and share them with you also. I'm pretty excited about my Easter tutorial coming up, it's a very easy one you can do with your kids and just pop up using the strips without leaving a mark or pulling at paint. I hope you like it!
Have you heard of Command Brand before? Do you use them in your own home?
