30 Years of Film – Mini Movie Challenge

Through May, if you have seen on Twitter, we’ve set ourselves a mini movie challenge; 30 years of film. A look back at some of our favourite films, from 1990 – 2020! An especially tough challenge for some years; and of course an easy choice in others!

30 Years of Film - A mini movie challenge

We didn’t have any rules in particular for our mini challenge. The idea – choose one film each day in May with a UK cinematic release of the year in question. We did try to pick a variety of films though we did notice some patterns emerging! It was so much fun I thought I’d share the list, and of course I’ll update the last couple of days!!

Movies and Music – A-Z Challenge 2021

If there are topics that are sort-of asides here on the blog, it is movies and music. I’m an avid movie watcher, and have always loved music! I’ve tried to incorporate both of these into my craft projects over time; as well as devoted posts here and there, in terms of favourites, and other features!

A-Z Challenge 2021

This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As well as exploring things that haven’t made it to the blog yet! As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!

An A-Z of the Craft Room Revisited

The craft room, my upcycled creative space, my den of crafty goodness, and of course the (very) occasional spare room! Since we’re in lockdown again; I managed to actually have a bit of a tidy and a clear out last month. Considering I did the original A-Z tour two years ago; I thought it was high time to share it again! So here we go an A-Z of the craft room, revisited!

an a-z of the craft room

As I said in the last one of these, this is just a bit of fun, a bit of a tour and who knows; it might give you a little more insight into me, if you’re new to the blog, or just feeling nosy!

So join me as I revisit the A-Z list from my original post, and share what has and hasn’t changed in the last two years!

Happy New Year – Hello 2021!

Happy New Year from The Craft Room and Beyond

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!

October Round Up – What I Got Up To

Hello November! A new month, new plans and new goals, and now a new lockdown. First though I thought I’d do a bit of an October round up! This has been a bit of a whirlwind of a month hasn’t it?!

This Month

There was quite a lot going on in October, and as I was sharing a lot of Blogtober content, some things didn’t quite fit anywhere; so, I thought I’d share a few things in this post.
