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!

12 Days of Christmas 2021 – Gingerbread House

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!

Valentines Gifts You Can Send in the Post

I was having a think this week about Happy Mail; and given the time of year, and the current situation here in the UK; it made me think of what Valentines gifts (or “galentines” etc etc) you could send in the post.

Feel the Love

So I thought I’d do a little post sharing some ideas, great if you wanted to step away from the simple flowers and chocolates, or even if you were just looking for ideas to send something nice to a special friend!

And as a bonus I’m also sharing a super cute and easy craft idea anyone can do, for almost any occasion!

Pumpkin Carving – Blogtober 2020

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.

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

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!
