Now we’re heading towards the end of September, the leaves are turning, it’s somehow immediately turning colder in the evenings, and so, you’re maybe starting to think about spending more time inside crafting? If that’s the case, why not take part in this week’s # CraftRoomInspiredChallenge!

It’s definitely getting more autumnal isn’t it! If you’re seeking out your colder-weather clothing, perhaps you come across a pair of old cosy socks, why not take part in this week’s # CraftRoomInspiredChallenge!
Week 1 of the # CraftRoomInspiredChallenge – Leaves.
Well, thanks to this challenge, I now actually have prompts for my crafting. This month, as well as working on some old favourites, which is becoming the norm lately; I will be doing some Autumn crafts!
We’re heading for more of an autumn vibe, though I’m hoping the sunny days hold out for a little longer!
This month, for a bit of fun; I thought I’d spend the next few weeks sharing a sneak peek of my preparations for the # CraftRoomInspiredChallenge; using different materials each week, including leaves, twigs, old cosy socks and orange fabric, yarn or thread. The final results will be shared over on Instagram every Sunday.
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!
Of course face masks are around everywhere at the moment. I’ve had my trusty black and pink Disney mask for a while; (which I made during lockdown). But now the UK is making them mandatory in shops from July 24th; the time has come for me to have more than one available.
I haven’t really been out aside from work; or in outside spaces; so I didn’t need more than one mask. They wash up and dry so quickly once I get home from work!
However if I end up working on two consecutive days; and it isn’t quite dry, I’d potentially be left with a problem; and as this is the first week of that potentially happening, I thought I’d make a couple more.
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!
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!
While I was already working on ideas; I knew I wanted to do something a little different…
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.
The hard thing for me, is that it doesn’t come cheap, so is it something I could make the best use of? Is it right for me? I don’t really know what it can be used for. I’m sure there are others out there who feel the same way. If that’s you, read on!
I had a bit of a tidy up and sort out in the craft room recently; and it got me thinking about how individual a space it is! wondering how I would go about doing a room tour post, and I decided to do an A-Z. Which might give you a little more insight into me, if you’re new to the blog, or just feeling nosy! So here we go an A-Z of the craft room!
Throughout December on Instagram, I shared the wonderful craft supplies advent calendar which I was gifted by The Crafty Lass; also known as The Crafty Lass ADVENTure craft advent calendar.
I thought I would share each photo of The Crafty Lass ADVENTure together here, from each of the 24 days. The advent calendar itself was 24 individual small boxes, each numbered and containing a crafty surprise for every day! It came beautifully packaged, and even came with a lovely note from Paula!
