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!

Getting Ready For Easter With Cricut*

Now that we’re into April, it’s all about getting ready for Easter! This is a great excuse for some cute craft projects; and I thought I’d try out some of the different things I could make with my Cricut Maker!

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

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 *
