I’d go out on a limb and say this might be the last one of these for a while, but you never know what’s going to happen in a year! After all, this blog is almost one year old now, and somehow I’m now self-hosted, and things are very different , but also somehow the same. And if you know me at all; you know I LOVE Christmas!

On The Desk – CraftRoomInspiredChallenge – Leaves

Week 1 of the # CraftRoomInspiredChallenge – Leaves.

Well, thanks to this challenge, I now actually have prompts for my crafting. This month, as well as working on some old favourites, which is becoming the norm lately; I will be doing some Autumn crafts!

On the desk...

We’re heading for more of an autumn vibe, though I’m hoping the sunny days hold out for a little longer!

This month, for a bit of fun; I thought I’d spend the next few weeks sharing a sneak peek of my preparations for the # CraftRoomInspiredChallenge; using different materials each week, including leaves, twigs, old cosy socks and orange fabric, yarn or thread. The final results will be shared over on Instagram every Sunday.

#CraftRoomInspiredChallenge, Leaves, Old Cosy Socks, Twigs, Orange, #MayInspire, #CraftRoomAndBeyond
