We’re finally here, J. My most dreaded of letters for this years challenge. Honestly; I wrote a list and couldn’t come up with anything for J! Someone suggested jewellery; but I don’t do much in the way of making jewellery (though I’ve had a go here and there)! Though I do use jewels, gems, glitter, beads and sparkle a lot in crafting!
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 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!

There are a few significant people who get a mention here on the blog, every now and again. But I thought I’d take the opportunity; to share some fun posts and photos from the archive all about family and friends!
We’re on day 6 of the April A-Z Challenge, and I’m sharing a retrospective; or look back at The Craft Room and Beyond. Sharing some historic content you may have missed, or might want to check out!!

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 March 2021 setup…
I got my journal for around £10 on Amazon, from Stationery Island; I actually got a kit which came with a ruler, some stickers (yay) and a pen.

The craft room, my upcycled creative space, my den of crafty goodness, and of course the (very) occasional spare room! Since we’re in lockdown again; I managed to actually have a bit of a tidy and a clear out last month. Considering I did the original A-Z tour two years ago; I thought it was high time to share it again! So here we go an A-Z of the craft room, revisited!
As I said in the last one of these, this is just a bit of fun, a bit of a tour and who knows; it might give you a little more insight into me, if you’re new to the blog, or just feeling nosy!
So join me as I revisit the A-Z list from my original post, and share what has and hasn’t changed in the last two years!

I thought I’d begin my Valentines crafting with a really cute; easy papercraft project – a heart shaped valentines gift box, made from regular cardstock.
I thought I’d have some fun while in lockdown and get creative for Valentines; with some quick and easy craft projects; all made using my stash!

I thought I’d share something a bit different today, and that’s some handmade Disney cards!
I make cards as and when they’re needed; but rarely do what I did this week, which is make a few at once!
I’ve been working through my stash for ages; only buying what I really need, and this is something that I’ve had in a drawer for AGES! This was originally picked up because I (of course) love all things Disney, but it has since just sat there since, pretty much not getting used!
I found the kit in a drawer; while coming up with a card idea I will need soon, but thought, why not make up the rest too!

Something a bit different for “On the Desk” this week, as the only thing currently on my desk is the computer!

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.
To begin I had a relaxed evening after work; and checked out the Design Space, and found so many cute Easter Crafts available!

If there is any single craft item on my ultimate wish list; it is the Cricut Maker. The ultimate smart cutting machine! For someone that does as varied a selection of crafts as I do, it is truly a craft room must-have, for so many reasons.
This is a sponsored conversation; written by me on behalf of Cricut. All of The following opinions and text are my own.
The hard thing for me, is that it doesn’t come cheap, so is it something I could make the best use of? Is it right for me? What does it do? I’m sure there are others out there who feel the same way. If that’s you, read on!
