The Craft Journal – 13th January

One of my favourite new items in the Folksy store

Hi Craft Fans!

This week has felt like the first real week back after Christmas. I have felt really productive and hopefully that’s coming across! I plan to keep up with this.

I already have the next week planned out in the diary and lots of plans for future content! This week will be another busy one as I have a couple of meetings in the diary and my first event of 2020!

Easy, Hand Made Valentine!

Hello Everyone!

I’m publishing this project a little sooner than planned. (Makes a change.) However I have been super efficient this week and a lot of other bloggers seem to be posting their Valentine’s Day content today, and I wouldn’t want to be left behind!

If you want to make a beautiful and unique card for your valentine this year I have the perfect tutorial for you! All you need is some toilet roll tubes, paint and some red paper and you’re good to go!

Remember, you can sell anything that you make if you wish! If you make this project remember to share photos on our social media! You will find the links to our channels on the left hand side of the screen on a desktop, and on mobile the links are at the bottom of the menu (accessed by tapping the button at the top right of the page!) .

The first page in the new Settlers’ Diary

Hi craft fans!

I have had a little bit of a strange week. Mr Crafts was supposed to be away in Salt Lake City for work until today, but he came home early as he was unwell! That meant I had to change some plans last minute to go and get him from the airport. It did however mean that I got to go to Woolly Workers on Friday, which was a little bonus!

I actually got quite a few things done this week, although it really doesn’t feel that way. I am hoping for a far more productive week this week. With that in mind I am going to get down to business and kick of the first post of the week!

Festive Round Up – Happy 2020!

My Handmade tweaks to the dinner table

Hello Crafters!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy 2020. I am super excited and motivated for this year with George Crafts! I have promised myself to be more organized in the hopes that this will bring more consistency to my content and I already have events booked up for January and June this year!

I thought today I would do a little bit of a festive round up, instead of the traditional Craft Journal post. I have been so busy over the past few months preparing for Christmas, and a lot of those preparations have been crafty!

The Craft Journal – 2nd December

I hope it tastes as good as it looks!

Hello Crafters!

This comes to you a little later than planned, and this week Mr Crafts has to take a little bit of the blame for this! A few weeks ago Mr Crafts broke (another) car key, and he hadn’t managed to get a new one cut.

This morning I went food shopping and planned to go in to Timpson’s to get the key re-cased while I did the shopping. Unfortunately Timpson was closed for lunch so I had to get the key sorted after the shopping. The key took another half an hour to get re-cased so I had to go back inside to the café for a hot chocolate and a read of a magazine.

Anyway Mr Crafts has now gone Christmas shopping, with his new car key so I want to make the most of the peace and quiet and get some crochet done, so I had best get on!

The Craft Journal – 25th November

Yay to all the sleeves being done!

Hello Crafters!

I hope you are all well into your Christmas preparations by now. This last week has been Christmas chaos! The majority of the week was spent getting ready for the Christmas Lights Switch on in town (big success). I feel well and truly in the Christmas mood. There are more fairs to go to, more jumpers to make and more festivities to plan!

That must mean I have to get on with this blog post!

The Craft Journal – 18th November

Just some of the Christmas cards I have been making

Hi Craft Fans!

This week we have a little bit of a craft journal with a difference. The second half of last week was a little quiet on the blog and our social media platforms. This is mostly because I had lots of real life things to do (I know, how disappointing) as well as trying to make a hole in my Christmas preparations.

In the theme of having lots to do, I best get on with writing!

Review – Resin8 Petal Trinket Tray Kit

Some of you will remember I ordered myself a birthday present before I went away. If you want to see the unboxing video, you can click here. Now I have had a little time to get over the jet lag, teach some workshops and do various other things I finally got around to making the petal trinket tray that I ordered from Resin8.

The Craft Journal, Week Beg 4th November

A beautiful view to end a wonderful day

Hello Crafters!

It has been another busy week in the Crafty house. This week I have led my second ever jewellery workshop and I feel like I’ve got my blogging mojo back. You will have noticed a lot more content being posted. This is something I feel extremely happy about, for a while I feel like I have only been posting once a week, and I really want to do more than that!

Anyway, a lot has happened in the last seven days and I want to tell you all about it! So please, sit back, grab something caffeinated on this Monday and have a read of my ramblings!
