Paulos Circus 2021 – Back to the Big Top*

We were delighted to see that Paulos Circus, and the big top tend were heading back to Cornwall in summer 2021! Of course we have been lucky enough to enjoy the last two shows, though I was afraid we would miss it, as we have had family visiting last week! As it happens, I was offered free tickets* to see the show with our guests too! Making it an extra special experience, as some of our party had never been to the circus before!

Rainy Day Jigsaw Puzzle [Ad: Gifted]

So, the beginning of this week, started with rain! If there’s anything I love about a rainy day, it’s that you can properly relax, and I chose to work on a jigsaw puzzle. I was recently contacted by Wentworth Puzzles, and they gifted me a gorgeous 1000 piece puzzle; to share here on the blog. With this in mind, I thought it would make a nice change, to share something I get up to that isn’t craft related!

This Week

I love jigsaw puzzles, though I don’t always have time to do them; so on this rainy Monday, it was a really nice chance to sit down and take the day to myself! I popped on a podcast playlist, and got puzzling!

A Night at the Circus *

When the opportunity arose to attend Paulos Circus’ latest show, and share our experience on the blog, Stu and I jumped at the chance. We decided to stay away from social media searches, and so we had no idea what to expect, we were excited! We weren’t to be disappointed!

Paulos Circus Big Top!

I can’t remember the last time I went to the circus, long enough that times have changed and the presence of animals is thankfully no longer a thing. Looking forward to acrobatics, fun and more… But what would we get?

This is a sponsored conversation; written by me on behalf of Cricut. The following opinions and text are all my own.

Getting to know the Cricut EasyPress 2

I will be completely honest, I have never given much thought to iron-on projects. This isn’t to say I’ve never had the idea; I was under the impression; that Iron-on projects are too complex. As well as something at risk of being a bit of a fad, that I’d pay out for; before becoming bored with it; not using it or getting distracted with something else. 

This being the case, I haven’t really been aware of products to do this at home, though of course I know you can do certain projects at home with an iron. I don’t know the first thing about materials or methods…
