June was a fairly busy month! Lots of work, which hasn’t been great for content, but there’s a little there. And at the end of the month a fun family visit! July is not quite as hectic. For now though, I am starting the month as I always do, sharing my bujo, and this month I have a nautical journal theme!
There’s a bit of black… and definitely red… I may have strayed from the monochrome theme a little this month.

I am almost shocked I’ve managed three posts on time already, and all being well this post is now four in a row! I’m starting each week with a share of my December bullet journal spread for the week, and something extra, today that’s The Holiday Tag!
We all know by now I love a good tag post, and it’s always a fun chance for a bit of Q and A! If you ever have any questions for me, don’t hesitate to ask.

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.
As much as I love the idea of making a real gingerbread house, it’s not something I could leave out at Christmas, because of the cats, and because generally I think it’s kind-of gross. And also, because we REALLY don’t need more treats and stuff at this time of year! So a wooden one seems practical!

We thought we’d have a bit of a laugh and create a fun playlist for Halloween! We’re big rock and indie fans, but a few others have crept in while we we’ren’t looking… Here is our Halloween party playlist.
This is just a bit of fun! If you have any songs you’d add to the list, certainly let us know in the comments!

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!
