Happy Crafty New Year – Beyond Craft

Every Tuesday evening I host Beyond Craft, aka #BCChat; over on Twitter. Last month we had a fun Secret Santa swap, and this week I am launching our first Challenge of 2021 – Happy Crafty New Year!

12 Days of Christmas 2020 – Hello Again Blogmas!

It seems like far too recently I was posting Christmas content! This year, has without a doubt been one of the strangest! But here we are bringing some shine and festivity to the end of the year; with 12 Days of Christmas 2020!


I’d go out on a limb and say this might be the last one of these for a while, but you never know what’s going to happen in a year! After all, this blog is almost one year old now, and somehow I’m now self-hosted, and things are very different , but also somehow the same. And if you know me at all; you know I LOVE Christmas!

Most of these “Day 1 of blogmas” posts start with a plan…

#CraftBlogClub Secret Santa! (2016 Part 1)

Before I begin, I should introduce the #CraftBlogClub Secret Santa. For a couple of years now I have taken part in the #CraftBlogClub ‘Secret Santa’ gift swap.


What is #CraftBlogClub?

Every Tuesday I participate in a Twitter chat – “#CraftBlogClub” which takes place between 7 and 8pm. It is simply a place to chat about blogging, and crafting with less of a focus on selling than many other Twitter chats.

Which for people like me, who craft as a hobby, is refreshing – and a great way to meet like-minded people online – without being bombarded with sales content. (Don’t  get me wrong, I love to buy handmade, but I like to have a choice in when  and where I choose to shop.)

#CraftBlogClub also have challenges throughout the year, and I have taken part for the last couple of years. The most recent ‘challenge’ for #CraftBlogClub was set, the Secret Santa gift swap. We all submit our names, and get emailed with someone else at random, to make a gift for! And in return someone gets your name, and you receive a nice surprise in the post!

Of course I couldn’t post about this particular swap until after Christmas, but before I do that, I thought I would go back and share previous swaps!
