Keepsakes and Mementos – A-Z Challenge 2021

It’s no secret that the craft room is a treasure trove of not only craft supplies; but many keepsakes and mementos. Whether it’s my collection of scrapbooks, handmade items or more random things!

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!

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!)

Travel – Our Anniversary Break in Venice, Italy

It was our anniversary last week; and Stu and I decided a couple of months ago to book a break away. We found some cheap flights to Venice; and as it’s on our (rather long) list of places we’d like to go, we went for it.

Finding a nice but reasonably low budget hotel, as we never really spend any time there, other than sleeping. Aside from this, arranging transport and parking we didn’t spend much at all.

Somerset 2019 (Part 3) – Barrington Court

Recently we spent the weekend in Somerset, just to get away for a couple of days! We’re on a bit of a budget at the moment, and so we decided to check out a couple of nearby National Trust sites, as we are members, so get free entry to lots of sites in the UK, which of course we haven’t explored before!

After a morning at Montacute House in Somerset, we hopped into the car and drove the — miles to Barrington Court a Tudor Manor house near Ilminster. Somerset 2019 - Barrington Court (6) Continue reading “Somerset 2019 (Part 3) – Barrington Court”

Somerset 2019 (Part 1) – Haynes Motor Museum

This year, instead of heading out of the UK, we visited Somerset, there were a few places we had talked about wanting to visit, and having limited time off work, it seemed the perfect choice to have a break away, on a bit of a budget. We booked a B&B in the village on Montacute and headed up on the Friday, to return on Sunday, filling three days with about as much activity as we could!  Continue reading “Somerset 2019 (Part 1) – Haynes Motor Museum”

Travel Announcement – We’re Off On A UK Mini Break!

We love getting away, and usually all being well go abroad once a year, and somewhere in the UK at least once. Living in Cornwall we’re very lucky to have things to do locally, but it’s nice to get out of town for a while, find somewhere new, and explore!

With this in mind we have booked a mini trip away next week, staying in Montecute, Somerset, where we’ll be doing some of our usual national trusting and visiting a couple of other fun places too! So expect lots of day out posts soon!!

Do you have “staycations”? Is there anywhere you regularly visit here in the UK?

Disneyland Paris Anniversary Scrapbook

It is finally time to share my Disneyland Paris Anniversary scrapbook!The Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary celebrations; was our second Disney holiday back in 2017. Of course I always planned to create a scrapbook of the trip, but it took me over a year to actually get it done!

Now the book is finally finished; and of course I’m really pleased with it! So, of course; I took some photos of my layouts and thought I’d share it here on the blog!
