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?

I decided what we needed above our fireplace was some fun Halloween bunting! (Stu has since suggested I make Christmas bunting, so watch this space)! This is a quick and easy sewing project for beginners or experienced sewists!
I chose to decorate using some vinyl and my Cricut Maker. Of course you could cut out letters from paper or fabric and glue or sew them on; this is a pretty versatile project, and of course you can choose fabrics or colours that match your own preferences.

Autumn is totally knitting season, if you ask me! There’s something nice about sitting in front of the tv, with a bit of knitting; and I love a quick little project; just to break up anything bigger I’m working on. So this year I knitted up a quick knit mug cosy, in autumnal orange.
The great thing about these sorts of projects is how fast they are, and you can make a few; whether you want something seasonal, something personalised, or just a bunch of different mug cosies to choose from!

And we’re at the end of the first full week of Blogtober 2021, and it wouldn’t be a major blogging season without a Tag! As we all know I love a good tag to break up the regular content; (do tag me in any, seriously)!
So here’s a bit of themed fun with ten questions all about Halloween and the autumn season.

In case anyone missed it, I love a wreath… So it seemed only right that I got to making something I could dig out around October every year to add a little seasonal touch. With that in mind I headed to Hobbycraft, and picked up some supplies to make my own simple autumn wreath.
I wanted something more autumnal than Halloween based, but that worked for both aspects. It’s a nice little addition before heading into my favourite season of all!

I got to thinking this year about crafting for Halloween, for those who won’t be entertaining kids! There’s a little bit out there for the grown-ups, but some is excessively samey; and some is a little OTT for your average gathering. In this post I thought I’d share some quick crafty Halloween makes for adults; which can all be made of an evening, and will add a little whimsy to your ghoulish gathering; whether it’s a dinner party, or a movie night!
I will be sharing more Halloween craft ideas throughout the month; and of course there is regular seasonal and NON seasonal content throughout the year. So if you’re not already; do give the blog a follow, or subscribe by email; so you don’t miss out!

Bullet journaling is something in the last several months, I have grown to love; use and find good in; in so many ways. It helps me get organised; record and track things; and there’s something nice about spending a little time whether weekly or daily looking through, and filling in certain parts. In this post I’ll be sharing my October 2021 setup.
I got my journal for around £10 on Amazon, from Stationery Island; This was actually a kit which came with a ruler, some stickers (yay) and a pen. I have even picked up another one (journal only this time), for next year!
