An interesting one for L; which in fairness, was sort-of my plan for all the titles in this years A-Z Challenge series. I talk about how I started blogging, and eventually changed up how I post, from constant small projects, to the inclusion of bigger ideas with little updates. Whether they are long term craft projects; life in general, or other nonsensical ramblings!
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!

I see these “easy string eggs” all over the place online, but rarely see HOW to make them. So I thought I’d put some together, and share the process here; in case you wanted to make some of your own!
So, they’re super easy to make, and you don’t need much in the way of supplies or preparation. There IS however a lot of mess, so what follows is a simple step by step process. Of course these work for any time; depending on the colour, and you can make them any size you like, using thread, or yarn or even string!

As we’re still in Lockdown; and I wanted to up my seasonal content; I’ve been looking for some fun Easter crafting. Mostly because I just want fun things to work on! I was checking out some quick things to do and found some cute mini Easter Canvas squares, which seemed just the thing!
So I love a bit of colouring, it’s relaxing, and colour in canvasses are easy to do with a handful of pens, if you don’t want the hassle of dealing with paint! I should point out, although I have worked with Hobbycraft in the past; this post is not sponsored; I just wanted to share it!

I’m feeling oddly motivated at the moment; and I thought I’d use that motivation for a little more craft time! I’ve always got something on the go, and I thought I’d try and get back on the needles; with some very berry knitting!
So here goes with another crafty project at the beginning of the year! Though I’m thinking small and easy to accomplish this time, because I always have a habit of starting things but not finishing them!

It’s about time for some Christmas crafting isn’t it! I thought I’d start this year with some easy yarn crafts you can do at home; to add to your decorating!
I have quite a few handmade decorations at this point; but I can’t help myself at this time of year. Here are some easy crafty ideas, for you to try!

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.
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!

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!

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!

Of course face masks are around everywhere at the moment. I’ve had my trusty black and pink Disney mask for a while; (which I made during lockdown). But now the UK is making them mandatory in shops from July 24th; the time has come for me to have more than one available.
I haven’t really been out aside from work; or in outside spaces; so I didn’t need more than one mask. They wash up and dry so quickly once I get home from work!
However if I end up working on two consecutive days; and it isn’t quite dry, I’d potentially be left with a problem; and as this is the first week of that potentially happening, I thought I’d make a couple more.

Can’t believe we’re in June! I have been trying to keep busy with cleaning and garden stuff this week; my flowers are growing, so I thought it only fitting that I work on something similar craft-wise too!
This year I picked up a few mini cross stitch kits. For those moments when I’m not as motivated to work on a larger project. This week has been one of those weeks…
