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?

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.

I feel like after 7 months, I should stop saying I’ve never attempted bullet journaling before. It’s 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 August 2021 setup.

I got my journal for around £10 on Amazon, from Stationery Island; I actually got a kit which came with a ruler, some stickers (yay) and a pen.

Our garden has of course been the subject of a few blog posts over the last couple of years! IT has a few statement pieces, such as our upcycled Belfast sink planter, and the bunting pinned to the fence! But what’s new in the garden in 2021?
With a few additional colourful pots and LOTS of colourful planting, I thought I’d share our garden this year, and catch up with our final week of 30 days wild!

June is of course Pride month, and for Pride 2021, I wanted to do a couple of things! First of all I wanted to do a craft project, I also wanted to buy from an LGBTQ+ small, indie business; and in doing so, support someone’s dreams, and get something pretty for me; but something that was also representative of Pride. I also wanted to take part in the Craftic Pride Rainbow Challenge!
Wow, that’s a busy little list, when you add it to the projects I’m working on already, and the 30 Days Wild, and of course not forgetting the day job…

What lovely amazing weather we’ve been having! All the better for getting out in the garden, and of course; if I’m spending more time out there, it made me realise how much I needed to renew the garden bunting!
This has become even more noticeable, as I’ve been out planting; doing more of the 30 days wild list; and of course, enjoying family time in the sunshine!

I thought I’d share a little bit of a bright knitting update this week; as I have finally finished the first sleeve of the jumper! I am of course also still trying to participate in The Wildlife Trust’s 30 Days Wild; and thought I’d share what I’ve been up to this week.
The goal of 30 Days Wild is to do something wild; or connect with nature in some way, for 30 days.

This month, is also 30 Days Wild, created by The Wildlife Trust, it’s all about getting in touch with nature, and learning how we can do our part to preserve, protect and learn more about living alongside wildlife. I won’t be doing everything on the 30 days list (because I can’t) though I will try to do as many as possible throughout the month, and share what I get up to here on the blog!
I’m looking forward to taking on a little more, paying more attention, and generally appreciating nature!

Through May, if you have seen on Twitter, we’ve set ourselves a mini movie challenge; 30 years of film. A look back at some of our favourite films, from 1990 – 2020! An especially tough challenge for some years; and of course an easy choice in others!
We didn’t have any rules in particular for our mini challenge. The idea – choose one film each day in May with a UK cinematic release of the year in question. We did try to pick a variety of films though we did notice some patterns emerging! It was so much fun I thought I’d share the list, and of course I’ll update the last couple of days!!

I’ve happened across a couple of blog posts sharing this tag; based on Vogue’s 73 Questions with… series. I thought it would be fun to work my way through! I have tried to keep my answers short as there are so many, and have interspersed some images to keep it from being a huge wall of text!
So, read on to find out a little about me; from the obvious, not to mention the more obscure! (Honestly who came up with these questions?!)
