We’re now a week into lockdown; with lots of fun to be had, movie watching, cleaning the craft room, and getting out when we can! I thought this week, I’d share a recent walk, and a little creative cross stitch update too!
Before I get to the cross stitch update; I wanted to share a recent wander we had; at the beginning of lockdown; along a pretty woodland walk, right here in the heart of the city.

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!

On the desk is back! I’m planning on being a little more realistic this year though! With motivation in mind, I thought I’d start the year with a new cross-stitch project; this is one kit I’ve had lined up for a while, Love Tree from Bothy Threads.
I didn’t really get into any stitching last year, and so I do need to finish The Scarf, but I thought starting fresh with a new project would motivate me. So let me introduce you to my current project…

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! So in this post I thought I’d share things at the beginning, so here’s the bujo – January 2021, and how I’ve set it up so far.
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.

Happy New Year! So, here we are, the beginning of a new year, a fresh start, a new page etc etc! I’m sure I’m not the only one typing “Hello 2021” with a little more hope than previous years!
I’m not going to be all “New Year – New Me”, because it’s not my style. I don’t even have a huge amount of “goals” but I thought I’d take a little bit of time to share some of what you can expect here on The Craft Room and Beyond this year!
