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!

We’re finally here, J. My most dreaded of letters for this years challenge. Honestly; I wrote a list and couldn’t come up with anything for J! Someone suggested jewellery; but I don’t do much in the way of making jewellery (though I’ve had a go here and there)! Though I do use jewels, gems, glitter, beads and sparkle a lot in crafting!

So we’ve made it through the first month of 2021; with just one weekend to go. it’s been a great month of creating and I though I’d do a bit of a round up of a very crafty January!
I’m feeling fairly positive about how the month has gone, and have achieved several of my goals (not all of them, but it’s looking good for productivity), so I’m calling it a win! With that in mind; I’m more than ready to head into a positive and productive February!

Yes, you read it here a week ago, the knitting was complete, so what’s happening now?!! What’s with the Very Berry Knitting – Extra?!
When I had finished knitting before, I still had some yarn left over, and of course that called for making something else…

Yes, you read it here first, very berry knitting complete! I’ve actually managed to finish something I started! I know, I’m impressed too!
Though I will say; I have since made something else; which I’ll be sharing next week; to use up the remaining yarn (It STILL didn’t!) but I’m at least quite proud that I’ve used a fair bit of it!

I’m feeling oddly motivated at the moment; and I thought I’d use that motivation for a little more craft time! I’ve always got something on the go, and I thought I’d try and get back on the needles; with some very berry knitting!
So here goes with another crafty project at the beginning of the year! Though I’m thinking small and easy to accomplish this time, because I always have a habit of starting things but not finishing them!

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!
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!
