In case you missed it, we usually have a year-long movie challenge, and this year is no exception! We have retired the A-Z Challenge for now, and are playing a new game this year – The Movie Chain Game!
This is just a bit of fun for Friday nights, to make us think about watching something a bit different. How we go about choosing is the hard part. After Two years of random picking, and taking turns, we have deicded on a new movie challenge.

Happy New Year! Do you have new plans, new goals, or any other newness? I’m not a fan of resolutions, though I have a handful of goals, and of course a brand new Bullet Journal for 2022! Here I’ll share some of my setup for the year and an intro to my 2022 bujo.
As with last year, my journal is from Stationery Island, as they are affordable, and come in a range of fun colours. Last year my journal was teal. This year the colour is “poppy” or a pretty red.

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!
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!!

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!
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!

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!
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! 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!

This month we’ve been watching a TON of Christmas movies, and I’ve been sharing them over on Instagram, using the # 24 days of Christmas movies; and thought I’d share the list here on the blog!
Marking the end of this year’s 12 Days of Christmas; I thought I’d share the whole list here on the blog now it’s Christmas Eve, as we always watch the same two films on Christmas Eve!

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?!
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.

I loved the idea of sharing my “Day in the Life”, here on the blog, though the #BlogtoberWithBOA prompt is for tomorrow, and I’m following the prompts over on Instagram. I am sharing my day YESTERDAY because I’m at work today, so of course, not much happens at all!
So, here’s my Tuesday, just for fun!
