As it’s Halloween season, it seemed only right to do a bit of seasonal baking! Of course I always do, whether it’s shortbread, or cake! This year I thought I’d make some scary good chocolate cupcakes! Just to do something a little bit different!
The biggest change here was the frosting, which wasn’t remotely complicated!

Oooh now here’s a subject that we can all get our teeth into! I’m definitely a big fan of eating and drinking, and so grab a cuppa and have a read for some of my favourite food and drink based content you can find here on the blog!
If you’ve missed it I’m currently working my way from A-Z while sharing a retrospective of The Craft Room and Beyond; looking back at some older content you may have missed; as part of the April A-Z Challenge!

It’s no secret I love an excuse to bake; and for Valentines what else could I make but red velvet cake?
Red velvet cake is actually not that difficult to make, and add cream cheese frosting and you’ve got something truly special for any event!

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!
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!

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!
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.

Autumn is my favourite season, and it seemed only right, to share my autumn bucket list here on the blog, to show what I have planned for the next month or so!
I don’t have much planned generally for October, but there are a few things I would like to do! So I created a bucket list at the beginning of the month, knowing ahead of time, it was one of the prompts for Instagram…

Before I get to my Autumn favourites, I thought I’d explain a little….
I thought I would do something a little different this month, and try Blogtober, now technically that means 31 days of posts, but posting every day, and working is a little much for me.
I will be posting every day on Instagram, but here on the blog there will be more content, and some extra fun things throughout the month, from crafts and decor ideas, to getting out and about and enjoying more of Autumn!
So as a bit of an introduction to the season, I thought I’d share some of my favourites…

So we’re all back to normal after the April A-Z Challenge, but of course things for the last few weeks things have been far from “normal”. To begin, I just want to say a HUGE thank you to any keyworkers out there, whether frontline NHS and medical staff, or those working in shops and other businesses keeping us, our families and friends all safe and hopefully healthy. My heart goes out to those affected by the coronavirus, whether literally, or in terms of stress from the lockdown, working from home, home schooling, or those who are lonely and isolated. We are all in this together!
I confess, the situation has been quite bearable here, the A-Z challenge has been something of a blessing really in terms of avoiding the weekly posts of what I’ve been up to! There is only so much you can really say considering I last worked on the 23rd March! So, here we are at the beginning of May and while I haven’t been up to much, I thought I’d share what has been going on this April!
