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!
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!

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!
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!)

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.

A weekend away in Somerset was just what we needed; in terms of getting away for a couple of days. Though of course all good things must come to and end! However, on the way home; we stopped off at once of our favourite hidden gems in Lifton Devon, Dingles Heritage Fairground…
We really enjoy it here, and it’s a great indoor attraction for all the family! Whether you want to check out some amazing fairground history, or have fun on some genuine vintage rides!

We had planned to visit two national trust sites on the Saturday of our weekend in Somerset; though after a morning at Montacute House; we finished looking around Barrington Court at around 3pm. We figured we had just enough time to visit somewhere else! So we headed to the nearby Lytes Cary Manor…
I have to say, we’re so glad to have National Trust membership; because it made this busy day of visiting sites SO easy! (Not to mention affordable)!

Recently we spent the weekend in Somerset, just to get away for a couple of days. Staying in the pretty village of Montacute. After a morning at Montacute House, we hopped into the car and drove the 10 miles to Barrington Court a Tudor Manor house near Ilminster.
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!

There’s nothing like a break away, and we recently had a weekend away in Somerset, staying in the pretty village of Montacute. Where better to start the first day of our trip; than the property a mere five minute walk from where we stayed: Montacute House.
After going to Haynes Motor Museum on the way, before reaching our B&B that evening. On our first proper day, we set out to visit a couple of National Trust sites nearby to enjoy a relaxed sunny Saturday…

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. On our way up to Somerset, we decided to stop at Haynes Motor Museum.
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!

It’s Travel announcement time! We’re off on a little UK mini break to Somerset! We try to get away a couple of times a year; just to blow away the cobwebs and explore somewhere new!
We’ve been to Somerset a few times, though we’re trying to head to new places, so it’s still an adventure!
We are headed to Somerset, mostly because it’s not too far away from Cornwall; but far enough that it feels like a real break! Our plan is to find a nice B&B; and just head out to enjoy the surrounding area for a couple of days!

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!
If you’d like to see more of my travel scrapbooks, let me know. I have different books from a few different places, including Prague, our first Disney trip and Paris, and a few of different years of general scrapbooking, so leave me a comment if you enjoy this post and would like to see more!
