Crazy for Cars – A-Z Challenge 2021

Shock twist for those expecting craft for C! We’re on Day 3 of the April A-Z Challenge, and I thought I’d share a little snippet of a household pastime! Stu definitely got me into cars; (I don’t even drive!) and now I think we can safely say I’m about as crazy for cars as he is; though in a different way!

A-Z Challenge 2021

As I revealed previously; this month I am sharing a retrospective; or look back, on The Craft Room and Beyond! Beginning with A all the way to Z. Sharing fun content past and more recent, as part of the blogging from A-Z Challenge.

Car Show Season 2020 – Dream 10 Car Garage

Car show season is here once more, though of course due to the pandemic; we don’t have any shows to go to this year. So with that in mind I thought we’d have a little fun, with some favourites, some fun top 10’s and a look back on previous shows… I thought we’d begin by sharing my Dream 10 car garage!

Car Show Season

I’m not a HUGE motoring enthusiast by any means, though of course living with a self-confessed petrolhead; I’ve been to many a car show, and by now have several favourites! What follows is some REAL cars, that I’d have in my dream garage, if money was no object!

A Day Out to The British Motor Museum

The British Motor Museum is a brilliant and unique car museum; located in Gaydon, Warwickshire, just off J12 of the M40. Stu and I have discussed going for a while now; and as we were recently in Leicester; we were in the perfect position to visit as we headed home to Cornwall.

A day out to...

Of course we’re not a stranger to automotive museums; though Stu hadn’t visited for years and it was a first time visit for me.

Car Show Season, 3 Fab Cornwall Shows 2019

Yes, it’s that time of year again; Car Show Season! I’ve blogged about car shows before, and of course we visited Haynes Motor Museum recently; so it’s no secret that we’re car fans in this house (even me and I can’t drive!)

Car Show Season

This year, instead of individual posts, I thought I’d round everything up into one big post.

In this post, I’ll share some photos and information from the fab shows we’ve attended this year! You can also find some photos on my highlights on Instagram; from the Marie Curie Country and Classics show this past weekend.

Haynes Motor Museum – Somerset 2019 (1)

This year, instead of heading out of the UK, we visited Somerset. There were a few places we had talked about wanting to visit, and having limited time off work; it seemed the perfect choice to have a break away, on a bit of a budget. On our way up to Somerset, we decided to stop at Haynes Motor Museum.


We booked a B&B in the village on Montacute; and headed up on the Friday, to return on Sunday. Filling three days with about as much activity as we could!

Handmade Cards – A Look Back at My Favourites

I’ve created handmade cards for so long, but I don’t really share them on the blog anymore! I thought I’d take this opportunity in a fairly quiet month, to look back at some of my favourite makes!

Handmade Cards

I keep planning on sharing, my cards nowadays, and then don’t! So in the meantime, I’m digging out some pics of old handmade cards, so excuse the weird cropping and bad lighting…

July Scrapbook Pages 2018

And we’re at the end of another month! We’re having such a lovely summer too; so, before the month is out, here are my July scrapbook pages!

Scrapbook Share graphic image

As we’re over half way, in case you’re new to the blog; a bit of an explanation: I tend to do a simple book every year; just to have something more than photos on a computer. For the last few years it’s been a Smash book, but I have a small 8x8ish ring-bound scrapbook this year!

Previous month: June
