Halloween Decor – Crafty Ideas – Blogtober 2020

This year, more than in the past I’ve gotten more into Halloween, and Halloween decor. Not that Halloween is something I don’t enjoy, but spending more time indoors; means wanting to make the most of the fun! So unlike any before; I’ve found myself getting more into bringing a little Spooky Season into the house.

In the Garden – Upcycling Furniture

How to Brighten Up Your Garden When You Rent (Part 4)

The final project I am sharing this month; something I had in mind for the garden for a long time. Which I really never actually thought I’d actually do; but we did it last summer! Upcycling the furniture!

Plagued by windy and wet weather at the time; it made this project a little harder than it could have been; but getting Stu in to help, we got there eventually!

In the Garden – Upcycled Candle Jars

How to Brighten Up Your Garden When You Rent (Part 3)

When I started on my mission to brighten up the garden last year; I knew I wanted to include handmade and upcycled elements, but this is sometimes easier said than done. This week I share some easy upcycled candle Jars!

In the garden

Because our outside space is somewhat limited; our garden is mostly grass, with some unruly hedges on one side, bordered by high fences. We have essentially a smallish square of decking, where we can actually sit. Therefore anything I do, is mostly to make this small space, more pleasant to sit in!

12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Sock Snowmen – Tutorial

This year I was looking for some fun festive craft projects, and today I thought I’d share a tutorial for these cute sock snowmen!

These are EASY! I made these two in one evening. They’re incredibly cute, and extremely versatile, I’m sure you can find many alternatives with a simple Google search, but I stuck with the traditional snowman.

My Upcycled Craft Room – The Cupboard

My craft room has possibly been my longest running work-in-progress and may never be finished! But that is life as a creative person right? This post I’m going to be talking about the newest project – my upcycled craft cupboard.

My Upcycled Craft Room

The room is a blend of repurposed and upcycled furniture; and in true creative fashion, that’s what I’m here to share!

I’ve posted photos of the room before, showing these yellow cupboards. There are two on opposite wall. They are very cute, and quite handy; but showing their age a little; as the drawers are failing; the yellow paint has scratches and it’s generally quite old.
