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!

An A-Z of the Craft Room Revisited

The craft room, my upcycled creative space, my den of crafty goodness, and of course the (very) occasional spare room! Since we’re in lockdown again; I managed to actually have a bit of a tidy and a clear out last month. Considering I did the original A-Z tour two years ago; I thought it was high time to share it again! So here we go an A-Z of the craft room, revisited!

an a-z of the craft room

As I said in the last one of these, this is just a bit of fun, a bit of a tour and who knows; it might give you a little more insight into me, if you’re new to the blog, or just feeling nosy!

So join me as I revisit the A-Z list from my original post, and share what has and hasn’t changed in the last two years!

His and Hers Valentines Mugs

Something I really wanted to do this year; was make some His and Hers Valentines mugs using my Cricut, and some vinyl. This was quite easy to achieve, and I already had the perfect font on my laptop.

Feel the Love

I’ve said before that we don’t really take Valentine’s Day very seriously as a couple; earlier this week; Stu picked me up a new toothbrush and joked he was tempted to give it to me on Sunday… But as it’s so cold at the moment I came up with the perfect gift; (which clearly is going to be seen a bit early!).

Crafty January Baking & Handmade Cards.

So we’ve made it through the first month of 2021; with just one weekend to go. it’s been a great month of creating and I though I’d do a bit of a round up of a very crafty January!

This Week

I’m feeling fairly positive about how the month has gone, and have achieved several of my goals (not all of them, but it’s looking good for productivity), so I’m calling it a win! With that in mind; I’m more than ready to head into a positive and productive February!

Shop Indie This Christmas

I wanted to do something a little different this month, and share some fab indie biz. It’s fairly officially Christmas shopping season, and it’s a great opportunity to support small business; shop indie; and spread a little love to those that may be struggling; as there are no craft fairs or the like this year!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

So here are a range of some of the handmade products from some of my friends online! If you have a small business, get in touch and I’ll happily add you to the list! Please don’t link spam; if you have a gift guide similar to this one, do tell everyone about it in the comments below!

Halloween Baking: Very Berry Sponge Cake – Blogtober 2020

I’m no stranger to Halloween baking, as I do something every year, but this year I thought I would do something a little different, and bake a cake!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

We don’t need an excuse for cake in our house in all honesty, so I thought it would be fun, to make something tasty, sweet and Halloween themed, basically so I could blog about it this month.
