It’s no secret that I love a bit of handmade decorating, no matter what the season! I tried my hand at a couple of kits and some easy craft ideas for Christmas decor, and thought I’d share them in the one post!
I’ll also share this week’s fun Christmas bullet journal spread.

It’s Day 2! In this post I’m sharing how I got creative with a wooden Gingerbread House! It was a great excuse to do something a little bit different, and try something new.
As much as I love the idea of making a real gingerbread house, it’s not something I could leave out at Christmas, because of the cats, and because generally I think it’s kind-of gross. And also, because we REALLY don’t need more treats and stuff at this time of year! So a wooden one seems practical!

I wanted to have a go at something cute this year, and so I thought I’d share! I made a trio of Halloween pom-pom pumpkins!
Pom-Pom creations are super simple but really fun to make! They can also be a great way to use up scrap yarn!

What lovely amazing weather we’ve been having! All the better for getting out in the garden, and of course; if I’m spending more time out there, it made me realise how much I needed to renew the garden bunting!
This has become even more noticeable, as I’ve been out planting; doing more of the 30 days wild list; and of course, enjoying family time in the sunshine!

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!

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.

You may have seen these around, but are they really easy to make? In this post I’ll share, step by step how I made my fun sock skeleton; which you may have seen over on my Instagram feed from the CraftRoomInspired Challenge last month!
This is actually a super easy craft project that looks really cute and fun! It can be a great way to use up some stash, and have a little seasonal fun; suitable for kids and adults, though smaller crafters may need a hand with the sewing!

Who’s been carving pumpkins? We have actually decided not to do a pumpkin carving this year, mostly because I usually do it so people know they can trick or treat at our house, as locally, people only visit decorated houses.
There is still some fun though we have got some decorations for the window for anyone pumpkin spotting in the area!
I thought I’d share some of my past creations, and a fun hanging pumpkin sign I made for the window!
