Rainy Day Jigsaw Puzzle [Ad: Gifted]

So, the beginning of this week, started with rain! If there’s anything I love about a rainy day, it’s that you can properly relax, and I chose to work on a jigsaw puzzle. I was recently contacted by Wentworth Puzzles, and they gifted me a gorgeous 1000 piece puzzle; to share here on the blog. With this in mind, I thought it would make a nice change, to share something I get up to that isn’t craft related!

This Week

I love jigsaw puzzles, though I don’t always have time to do them; so on this rainy Monday, it was a really nice chance to sit down and take the day to myself! I popped on a podcast playlist, and got puzzling!

Pride 2021 and the Craftic Challenge

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…

30 Years of Film – Mini Movie Challenge

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!

30 Years of Film - A mini movie challenge

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!!

Zoos and Wildlife A-Z Challenge 2021

I’m surprised looking back at the blog recently; that there aren’t more posts sharing days out to zoos and wildlife parks. It’s definitely something we really enjoy and something I will totally endeavour to share more of in the future!

A-Z Challenge 2021

This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As well as exploring things that haven’t made it to the blog yet! As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!

Movies and Music – A-Z Challenge 2021

If there are topics that are sort-of asides here on the blog, it is movies and music. I’m an avid movie watcher, and have always loved music! I’ve tried to incorporate both of these into my craft projects over time; as well as devoted posts here and there, in terms of favourites, and other features!

Jewels and Sparkle – A-Z Challenge 2021

We’re finally here, J. My most dreaded of letters for this years challenge. Honestly; I wrote a list and couldn’t come up with anything for J! Someone suggested jewellery; but I don’t do much in the way of making jewellery (though I’ve had a go here and there)! Though I do use jewels, gems, glitter, beads and sparkle a lot in crafting!

Disney Magic – A-Z Challenge 2021

We’re BIG Disney fans in our house, and well, it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t share a little Disney magic this April! Especially considering it was the entire subject of my A-Z Challenge last year!

A-Z Challenge 2021

Just a reminder that this year’s A-Z Challenge theme is A Retrospective, or look back at The Craft Room and Beyond, sharing a variety of content you may have missed, both years back and more recently! I’ll be covering a variety of themes and topics through the month, but of course there’s always the search bar if you’re looking for anything in particular! (And of course you can contact me any time!)

Crazy for Cars – A-Z Challenge 2021

Shock twist for those expecting craft for C! We’re on Day 3 of the April A-Z Challenge, and I thought I’d share a little snippet of a household pastime! Stu definitely got me into cars; (I don’t even drive!) and now I think we can safely say I’m about as crazy for cars as he is; though in a different way!

A-Z Challenge 2021

As I revealed previously; this month I am sharing a retrospective; or look back, on The Craft Room and Beyond! Beginning with A all the way to Z. Sharing fun content past and more recent, as part of the blogging from A-Z Challenge.
