Something I really wanted to do this year; was make some His and Hers Valentines mugs using my Cricut, and some vinyl. This was quite easy to achieve, and I already had the perfect font on my laptop.
I’ve said before that we don’t really take Valentine’s Day very seriously as a couple; earlier this week; Stu picked me up a new toothbrush and joked he was tempted to give it to me on Sunday… But as it’s so cold at the moment I came up with the perfect gift; (which clearly is going to be seen a bit early!).
This year, more than in the past I’ve gotten more into Halloween, and Halloween decor. Not that Halloween is something I don’t enjoy, but spending more time indoors; means wanting to make the most of the fun! So unlike any before; I’ve found myself getting more into bringing a little Spooky Season into the house.
Here are some fun, creative decorating ideas, you could try if you’d like to do the same!
How to Brighten Up Your Garden When You Rent (Part 3)
When I started on my mission to brighten up the garden last year; I knew I wanted to include handmade and upcycled elements, but this is sometimes easier said than done. This week I share some easy upcycled candle Jars!
Because our outside space is somewhat limited; our garden is mostly grass, with some unruly hedges on one side, bordered by high fences. We have essentially a smallish square of decking, where we can actually sit. Therefore anything I do, is mostly to make this small space, more pleasant to sit in!
While I was already working on ideas; I knew I wanted to do something a little different…
It is rare for me to do Halloween crafting, at least in any great amount. As much as I love Autumn; I just don’t see much that takes my fancy, though perhaps next year, it will make a change? I say this after I made this fun Halloween black cat cushion cover!
So while I will probably never do a FULL blogtober; as October isn’t really a time I’ve felt much need to blog a great deal about; I hope you enjoy this small crafty project!
I had a bit of a tidy up and sort out in the craft room recently; and it got me thinking about how individual a space it is! wondering how I would go about doing a room tour post, and I decided to do an A-Z. Which might give you a little more insight into me, if you’re new to the blog, or just feeling nosy! So here we go an A-Z of the craft room!
A little over a year ago I purchased a fat quarter of really pretty Alice in Wonderland cotton fabric at a craft show. Simply because I liked the pattern and the subtle colours; though I love all things Alice, and have slight theming in the craft room! I just needed the right fat quarter project!
When I bought it, I had no idea what I was going to make with it, it was definitely one of those “just really like the print” purchases, (you know what I mean right?) and so, of course it sat in storage, not forgotten, just awaiting inspiration.
At the end of last week Stu and I both had a couple of days off work and decided to make the most of the nice weather with some days out. As it’s so sunny at the moment; we hopped in the car for a drive to Marazion for some much-needed time by the sea.
We enjoyed the sunshine so much, it seemed only appropriate to take some photos to share…
