Starting 2022 with a Simple Knitting Project

I’ve had a nice little break at the beginning of the year, from work, and from the blog. It’s been nice to have a little bit of me time! Just chilling, reading and relaxing. But of course, I’ve also been working on some craft projects, ideas and plans. I’ve started the year with a simple knitting project to begin the year.

On the desk...

I wanted to do something that wouldn’t take too much brain power; as well as using up some of the stuff in my stash; so I’ve picked up my knitting needles, and some pretty cherry red yarn!

Hello 2022 – New Year New Bujo

Happy New Year! Do you have new plans, new goals, or any other newness? I’m not a fan of resolutions, though I have a handful of goals, and of course a brand new Bullet Journal for 2022! Here I’ll share some of my setup for the year and an intro to my 2022 bujo.

12 Days of Christmas – Festive Vinyl T-Shirt

I wanted to make something using some of my viny stash this year; but I wasn’t sure what to do for ages. Not for a lack of ideas, but quite the opposite! If you’re anything like me, you’ll know there are SO MANY ideas for using HTV; (Heat Transfer Vinyl, or Iron-On Vinyl) available online. In the end I decided to use up some of my pink glitter HTV; to make a vinyl t-shirt with a bit of festive sparkle!
