I wanted to do more Christmas crafting this year, but time is definitely not on my side this year. On the other hand, it has been fun to look at smaller quick projects and makes. In this post I’ll share some fun festive cross stitching, including the one piece I’ve managed to x-stitch this year.
I’ve always enjoyed cross-stitch, and find it quite relaxing. While things are definitely busy, it’s nice to take a few minutes out for a bit of mindful crafting.

It’s Day 2! In this post I’m sharing how I got creative with a wooden Gingerbread House! It was a great excuse to do something a little bit different, and try something new.

And also, because we REALLY don’t need more treats and stuff at this time of year! So a wooden one seems practical!

As part of a recent online challenge, I try to create an upcycled luminary. Of course I added to the challenge, to make it fit with my Halloween crafting, with a pumpkin theme.
I have seen handmade luminaries created from cans, bottles and jars, but could I make one using a tube?

As it’s Halloween season, it seemed only right to do a bit of seasonal baking! Of course I always do, whether it’s shortbread, or cake! This year I thought I’d make some scary good chocolate cupcakes! Just to do something a little bit different!
The biggest change here was the frosting, which wasn’t remotely complicated!

Just for fun, I thought I’d work on stitching a little seasonal something! So I picked up this cute Mouseloft mini Halloween cross-stitch kit. I really love these little kits as they’re quick to stitch, and are a little crafty break, not taking up too much time.
I stitched this little kit while watching some TV one evening.
Do you have any creative favourites this spooky season?
