Who’s been carving pumpkins? We have actually decided not to do a pumpkin carving this year, mostly because I usually do it so people know they can trick or treat at our house, as locally, people only visit decorated houses.
There is still some fun though we have got some decorations for the window for anyone pumpkin spotting in the area!
I thought I’d share some of my past creations, and a fun hanging pumpkin sign I made for the window!
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…
Week 3 of the # CraftRoomInspiredChallenge – Twigs.

Now we’re in mid September, the leaves are starting to turn, and you’re more likely to find some sticks and twigs around… If that’s the case, 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.
It is rare for me to do Halloween crafting, at least in any great amount. As much as I love Autumn; I just don’t see much that takes my fancy, though perhaps next year, it will make a change? I say this after I made this fun Halloween black cat cushion cover!
So while I will probably never do a FULL blogtober; as October isn’t really a time I’ve felt much need to blog a great deal about; I hope you enjoy this small crafty project!
This past week on instagram I have taken part in a small Colour My Everyday photo challenge with an autumn theme.
The challenge set by @adventuresandteaparties involves posting an image every day throughout the challenge, fitting with the prompt for the day. It’s super easy and a fun way to get posting inspiration. I liked it so much I thought I would share the fun here on the blog too.
