Our Garden in 2021 and Wild Week 4

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!

Bright Knitting Update and Wild Week 2

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.

Getting into the Garden – A-Z Challenge 2021

Getting into the garden, or exploring those around us. Definitely a couple of our regular activities! I’m not in any sense a gardening expert; but I am slowly learning; and love sharing some of my projects on the blog. As well as, of course; our visits to local gardens, and those further afield!

A-Z Challenge 2021

One week into the 2021 A-Z Challenge; and I am sharing a retrospective; or look back at The Craft Room and Beyond. Sharing past content, and photos from the archive! Of course I may mention other things, and not link to them; if you’d like to know more, feel free to leave a comment, or try the search bar!

Happy New Year – Hello 2021!

Happy New Year! So, here we are, the beginning of a new year, a fresh start, a new page etc etc! I’m sure I’m not the only one typing “Hello 2021” with a little more hope than previous years!

Happy New Year from The Craft Room and Beyond

I’m not going to be all “New Year – New Me”, because it’s not my style. I don’t even have a huge amount of “goals” but I thought I’d take a little bit of time to share some of what you can expect here on The Craft Room and Beyond this year!

Painted Garden Furniture * Project Garden

Painted garden furniture was something I had in mind for the garden; which I never thought I’d actually do! Something that always seemed a little too adventurous, and probably too difficult to do. But in the spirit of doing up the garden, and making it a much more fun space to hang out in; here we are!

This post contains a gifted product or products*, the content of this post is entirely my opinion.

In the garden

As I say, painting the plastic furniture, seemed a little too much of a pipe dream; until I was chatting recently with the lovely people at Pinty Plus about a collaboration!

#CraftBlogClub Upcycled Challenge 2018

The #CraftBlogClub upcycled challenge was launched at the end of March. This challenge is always good fun! Last time we had the challenge; in 2016; I was really pleased with my project; which of course I talked about in this post.

This time I actually upcycled several things. Some was planned, some just coincidental. So I thought I’d share them all in one post.
