It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a peer “award” for bloggers. These tags are a really great way to shout out to fellow creatives and give a little recognition, as we ALL especially know how much work goes into creating and maintaining a blog. Thank you so much to Bee of Mind.Beauty.Simplicity. for nominating me for the aesthete blogger award. What a fun way to begin the year!
Read on to find out more, and of course check out all the wonderful bloggers tagged too! Blogging really is all about supporting each other, as we all create our own space alongside one another.

Merry Christmas Eve! While it’s such a postitive and (finally) relaxing time! Lets take a look at where I’d like to be This Time Next Year! With the help of this very easy tag!
As with all of my tag posts, I won’t tag anybody; although you are more than welcome to participate. Let me know if you do!

Hello December! We’re back with 12 Days of Christmas 2021! Another collection of handmade Christmas fun in the lead up to the big day!
This is always a crazy time of year for me; so blogging the 12 days is always a challenge, but one I enjoy! I will do my best to reply to all comments as always; in the meantime enjoy the posts!

I’ve happened across a couple of blog posts sharing this tag; based on Vogue’s 73 Questions with… series. I thought it would be fun to work my way through! I have tried to keep my answers short as there are so many, and have interspersed some images to keep it from being a huge wall of text!
So, read on to find out a little about me; from the obvious, not to mention the more obscure! (Honestly who came up with these questions?!)

An interesting one for L; which in fairness, was sort-of my plan for all the titles in this years A-Z Challenge series. I talk about how I started blogging, and eventually changed up how I post, from constant small projects, to the inclusion of bigger ideas with little updates. Whether they are long term craft projects; life in general, or other nonsensical ramblings!
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!

It’s interesting when it comes to blogging; as to how much I post when it comes to sharing ideas, goals and plans. I don’t tend to share a lot of plans ahead of time; largely because I don’t work to any sort of major plan! I have a couple of projects I tend to line up for the year; but other than that, it’s what I decide to do, fairly openly here on the blog!

This seems quite early, but I have plans to work on seasonal content for the rest of March; so I thought I’d get this out of the way! My A-Z Challenge 2021 Theme Reveal!
I wanted to do something a little different this year, as opposed to choosing a project to work on. In the last year; I have done a LOT of content editing, and organising here on The Craft Room and Beyond. In the process I have gained new followers, as well as losing some. So my theme for 2021…

Happy New Year! So, here we are, the beginning of a new year, a fresh start, a new page etc etc! I’m sure I’m not the only one typing “Hello 2021” with a little more hope than previous years!
I’m not going to be all “New Year – New Me”, because it’s not my style. I don’t even have a huge amount of “goals” but I thought I’d take a little bit of time to share some of what you can expect here on The Craft Room and Beyond this year!

I loved the idea of sharing my “Day in the Life”, here on the blog, though the #BlogtoberWithBOA prompt is for tomorrow, and I’m following the prompts over on Instagram. I am sharing my day YESTERDAY because I’m at work today, so of course, not much happens at all!
So, here’s my Tuesday, just for fun!

It’s here, the beginning! A whole new look! Hello!
Welcome to The Craft Room and Beyond!
This is actually pretty daunting. Why did I start the blog over again? Ah yes, a fresh start, a new beginning… And with that in mind, before anything else…
It is (in my opinion) a terrible cliche, when everyone starts spouting all the “New Year, new me!” stuff. I am afraid, that as much as it is indeed a new year; as well as a new look blog, I am not planning on becoming a whole new me! I do however have a few things I would like to achieve in the next year.
