I’ve never attempted bullet journaling before. But having tried scrapbooking (a lot); something between scrapping and art journaling; and even just having a planner last year(!) I thought it was time I gave it a go! So in this post I thought I’d share things at the beginning, so here’s the bujo – January 2021, and how I’ve set it up so far.
I got my journal for around £10 on Amazon, from Stationery Island, I actually got a kit which came with a ruler, some stickers (yay) and a pen.

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!

We weren’t sure if we would manage a festive day out this year, what with how this year has been. We did manage to find a little bit of Christmas at Trerice; so headed there for a little walk this week!
Christmas at some of the local National Trust properties; is such a wonderful thing to experience. In the past we have visited Lanhydrock and Trelissick to see the decorations.

Is there anything more autumnal than visiting a pumpkin patch? While it’s a little early to be picking up a pumpkin; this weekend we headed to a local pick-your-own for some autumn fruit picking!
It’s been a while since either of us have been fruit picking, but we thought, why not! A nice excuse for some fresh air, and exercise, and a bit of fun!

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…

We’ve visited many of the National Trust sites in Cornwall, and I thought I was long overdue for a post sharing them all in a comprehensive list! So here’s a Throwback Thursday look back at some of the places we’ve been!
Here is a list of all the sites that can be found in Cornwall, with links to my posts if I’ve visited. I will update with any more links when I get to them!

Happy Friday! A lot of the week was devoted to work; and trying to find some balance still, which is evading me at the moment!
There’s not much to update this week; though we did of course head out at the weekend, and we’ve had some down time too…

Now that restrictions have eased a little; I’m so glad to be able to start going out again, and this week we visited Newquay Zoo!
Of course the lockdown has had a huge impact on many businesses and so we wanted to try and support some local places by paying them a visit. There are of course many places to donate too, which is really amazing; and a great way to support the places you love if you can spare a little to help any of those struggling.
Newquay Zoo, is actually one of the first places I visited when I moved to Cornwall almost ten years ago; and we’ve been a few times since; because it’s great for a wander, and of course who doesn’t like seeing lots of cute animals!

I’m so glad we’re getting back to going out once or twice a month again; we’ve visited Trelissick already, and now it’s time for Lanhydrock Gardens. It’s a little more complicated with booking in advance, so a there’s not as much chance to be impulsive.
You can find out more about booking visiting times for the National Trust here.
But with the amazing weather we’re having at the moment; it’s so nice to get out, and enjoy some of our favourite places in the sunshine!
Of course the National Trust houses aren’t open yet; which is understandable, but it’s a rare treat to be able to get out and enjoy Lanhydrock’s beautiful gardens; which, if you’re eagle eyed when it comes to past posts, our visits usually get a bit rainy! (This is purely coincidental! We just have bad luck visiting when it comes to the weather!) The gardens are beautiful, and there is so much to see.
