Shop Indie This Christmas

I wanted to do something a little different this month, and share some fab indie biz. It’s fairly officially Christmas shopping season, and it’s a great opportunity to support small business; shop indie; and spread a little love to those that may be struggling; as there are no craft fairs or the like this year!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

So here are a range of some of the handmade products from some of my friends online! If you have a small business, get in touch and I’ll happily add you to the list! Please don’t link spam; if you have a gift guide similar to this one, do tell everyone about it in the comments below!

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.

This Week #1 – Starting the Year, Handmade Gifts, National Trust Trelissick, and Sale Shopping

We’re 10 days in to January, and it’s been pretty quiet! I’ve been working a lot so there’s not been much going on so far! The weather’s been pretty terrible too, so it doesn’t exactly make you want to go and spend time outside!

These posts will be a bit of a mix of places we go, cinema trips, anything interesting happening, as well as any short mentions that don’t really warrant a full post, I’ll also use Fridays as a way of sharing any online challenges and updates on the big 35 before 35 challenge!

Shadow Box Frame Gift *

For Valentines day yesterday, Stu and I didn’t really have much planned. Neither of us really buy into the day; though we use it as an excuse to give each other a little present. And some chocolate (because any time is a good time for chocolate!). This year I decided I was going to make Stu something I’d promised a while ago; a shadow box frame gift!

Feel the Love

I was very kindly gifted a product within this post from Hobbycraft, the gifted item has been clearly marked with an *

Valentines Gift Ideas – Handmade With Love*

Valentines Day, is something neither Stu or I take very seriously, though we sometimes give fun gifts to each other anyway! Valentines day is only a couple of weeks after Stu’s birthday; so we tend to be fairly relaxed about it. But I love a bit of seasonal crafting, so, here are some crafty Valentines gift ideas!

This post contains items sent to me from Hobbycraft as a gift. These gifted items are clearly marked with an *

The Crafty Lass ADVENTure

Throughout December on Instagram, I shared the wonderful craft supplies advent calendar which I was gifted by The Crafty Lass; also known as The Crafty Lass ADVENTure craft advent calendar.

I thought I would share each photo of The Crafty Lass ADVENTure together here, from each of the 24 days. The advent calendar itself was 24 individual small boxes, each numbered and containing a crafty surprise for every day! It came beautifully packaged, and even came with a lovely note from Paula!
