12 Days of Christmas 2021 – Knitted Bobble Hat

It’s been interesting juggling a lot of work hours, Christmas prep, and Christmas crafting; it’s lead to finding some fun projects to work on in a small amount of time! Like today’s project, a cute knitted bobble hat!

Christmas 5

Knitting is still a great chillout project for me, so this was nice to knit over an evening after work. Along with scarves, and mittens, hats are a great Chrismas present, and a really easy handmade gift, for beginners or experienced knitters alike!

Crafty Halloween Makes for Adults

I got to thinking this year about crafting for Halloween, for those who won’t be entertaining kids! There’s a little bit out there for the grown-ups, but some is excessively samey; and some is a little OTT for your average gathering. In this post I thought I’d share some quick crafty Halloween makes for adults; which can all be made of an evening, and will add a little whimsy to your ghoulish gathering; whether it’s a dinner party, or a movie night!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

I will be sharing more Halloween craft ideas throughout the month; and of course there is regular seasonal and NON seasonal content throughout the year. So if you’re not already; do give the blog a follow, or subscribe by email; so you don’t miss out!

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!

Pride 2021 and the Craftic Challenge

June is of course Pride month, and for Pride 2021, I wanted to do a couple of things! First of all I wanted to do a craft project, I also wanted to buy from an LGBTQ+ small, indie business; and in doing so, support someone’s dreams, and get something pretty for me; but something that was also representative of Pride. I also wanted to take part in the Craftic Pride Rainbow Challenge!

Wow, that’s a busy little list, when you add it to the projects I’m working on already, and the 30 Days Wild, and of course not forgetting the day job…

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!

12 Days of Christmas 2019 – 5: String Wrap Bauble

Last year in the Crafty Lass ADVENTure advent calendar, there were a few things I wasn’t totally sure what I would find a use for, and one of them was the polystyrene ball… I wanted to make a string wrap bauble for the tree in red and green, as these are the colours we tend to go for in the living room at Christmas.

Christmas 5

In the end I took inspiration from some of the handmade decorations we have on our tree, some of which were made by Stu’s Grandma! I kind of like the amount of memories and mementos on our tree.
