On The Desk – Handmade Disney Cards

I thought I’d share something a bit different today, and that’s some handmade Disney cards!

I make cards as and when they’re needed; but rarely do what I did this week, which is make a few at once!

I’ve been working through my stash for ages; only buying what I really need, and this is something that I’ve had in a drawer for AGES! This was originally picked up because I (of course) love all things Disney, but it has since just sat there since, pretty much not getting used!

I found the kit in a drawer; while coming up with a card idea I will need soon, but thought, why not make up the rest too!

Getting to Know the Cricut Maker*

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut.The opinions and text are all mine.

If there was any craft item on my ultimate wish list. It would be the Cricut Maker, the ultimate smart cutting machine! For someone that does as varied a selection of crafts as I do, it is truly a must-have, for so many reasons.

Hello 2019! Happy New Year.

Happy New Year! And Hello 2019! I’m feeling refreshed and motivated with the change of the calendar; the clean page in a diary and the new start, that all come with a new turn around the sun.

Happy New Year from The Craft Room and Beyond

The last few months have been a whirlwind of activity here on the blog, with blogmas and even before that; and I am really hoping this will continue. I’d like to begin by thanking you – without you here, reading, leaving likes and comments and sharing on Social Media; this little blog would be far less successful! So thank you for stopping by!

This year, I have a few things lined up already; I am going to carry on posting as usual on Tuesdays and Fridays; but occasionally might add one or two in the week to keep things interesting! It will be the usual mix of craft, days out, and randomness!
