Bedroom Redecorating – Boring to Bliss

The original talk about plans for bedroom redecorating happened back in 2020. And again last year. The trouble is, we rent, and we have a lot of stuff; couple that with two indoor cats and it all becomes a bit of a work up… We got there eventually!

In this post I thought I’d keep it brief, but share how we changed our bedroom simply by changing the paintwork! I’d still consider it a bit of a work in progress, but it looks miles better now!

Bujo – October 2021 Setup


Bullet journaling is something in the last several months, I have grown to love; use and find good in; in so many ways. It helps me get organised; record and track things; and there’s something nice about spending a little time whether weekly or daily looking through, and filling in certain parts. In this post I’ll be sharing my October 2021 setup.

Bujo Share

I got my journal for around £10 on Amazon, from Stationery Island; This was actually a kit which came with a ruler, some stickers (yay) and a pen. I have even picked up another one (journal only this time), for next year!

Bujo – July 2021 Setup [AF]

As a reminder, I’ve never attempted bullet journaling before. But having tried scrapbooking (a lot); something between scrapping and art journaling; and even just having a planner last year(!) I thought it was time I gave it a go! In this post I’m sharing my July 2021 setup…

30 Days Wild – 2021 Week 1

This month, is also 30 Days Wild, created by The Wildlife Trust, it’s all about getting in touch with nature, and learning how we can do our part to preserve, protect and learn more about living alongside wildlife. I won’t be doing everything on the 30 days list (because I can’t) though I will try to do as many as possible throughout the month, and share what I get up to here on the blog!

30 Years of Film – Mini Movie Challenge

Through May, if you have seen on Twitter, we’ve set ourselves a mini movie challenge; 30 years of film. A look back at some of our favourite films, from 1990 – 2020! An especially tough challenge for some years; and of course an easy choice in others!

30 Years of Film - A mini movie challenge

We didn’t have any rules in particular for our mini challenge. The idea – choose one film each day in May with a UK cinematic release of the year in question. We did try to pick a variety of films though we did notice some patterns emerging! It was so much fun I thought I’d share the list, and of course I’ll update the last couple of days!!

I’ve happened across a couple of blog posts sharing this tag; based on Vogue’s 73 Questions with… series. I thought it would be fun to work my way through! I have tried to keep my answers short as there are so many, and have interspersed some images to keep it from being a huge wall of text!

73 Questions with The Craft Room and Beyond

So, read on to find out a little about me; from the obvious, not to mention the more obscure! (Honestly who came up with these questions?!)

Movies and Music – A-Z Challenge 2021

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!

A-Z Challenge 2021

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!
