The Craft Journal – 26th September

Hi Crafters!

All of these projects will be made over the two jewellery making wokshops

Today I have been down to Stanwick Lakes organising two jewellery making workshops which will be happening in October and November! I am very excited. Not only will these be the very first formal workshops I have hosted, but these will be the very first workshops in the new Settlers Barn! I feel very privileged to be holding the inaugural event in our barn and I hope I will make the Settlers team very proud! Anyway, I will be updating you with more details of the workshop very soon. For now we have a few days of crafting to round up from last week!

The (Bumper) Craft Journal – 16th September

Hello Crafters!

It’s been a while since I posted and I have been very busy. I think I’ve only just recovered from a busy but fantastic week with the Settlers of the Nene Valley. Now that our Meet the Settlers event is over we are busy planning the next Settlers activities!

Monday 16th September

I wanted to start the week with a bang, so I chose some pieces of jewellery from the pieces I had been making over the past few days to photograph. Then I listed them all in my Folksy store. There are several bracelets and necklaces all in different styles so I hope there is something for everyone there! If you would like to view any of the pieces, click here.

My first ever online sale!

Hello Crafters!

Last week was so busy, and this week is shaping up to be the same. It is the final week of preparations before the Meet the Settlers event at Stanwick Lakes on Sunday and I anticipate much of the week will be spent working on this! I have been beading away furiously in the last few days so I had best get on with this so I can get listing the new items in the Folksy Store!

The Craft Journal – September 2nd

Paper beads are great fun and easy to make!

Hello Crafters,

Once again Monday has graced us with its presence and another week stretches out before us! Worry not, as there will be crafts a plenty to keep you entertained.

Last week was a busy one in the Crafts house due to all the IKEA furniture arriving and being built. The house is still in disarray as I type but I am hoping to get it all sorted out throughout the week!

Anyway, there have been a lot of exciting goings on in the world of craft over the last seven days, so I best get on with things.

The Craft Journal – 27th August

The spread I never published

Hello Crafters,

Last week seems so far away again. I am feeling a little guilty at the moment as I feel like I have been neglecting you guys for the past couple of weeks. I have still been very busy crafting, but I have not had so much time to tell you all about it.

You may have noticed that last week we did not have our usual art journaling post. There are a few reasons for this, that I will tell you all about later, but I have now decided that the art journaling post will be published every two weeks, but there will be a little something else to keep you entertained on the weeks that we are not art journaling!

The Craft Journal – 19th August

This week I have made many shiny things

Hello Crafters!

I hope you made the most of your bank holiday and found something crafty to do! I made the most of the long weekend and started on a scrap book and started another (I can’t be stopped, I think it must be an addiction) crochet project. The good news is that I actually finished the crochet project on the same day I feel slightly better about that. Anyway, this week we have a bumper edition of The Craft Journal to get through, so let’s begin.

I do love a squishy parcel!

Well crafters it is another lovely sunny day outside, and by sunny day I mean the sun is shining and the skies are blue and it is not swelteringly hot! Last week I had an awful lot of planning to do for the Crafternoon that I hosted over the weekend! So settle down with a snack and a drink and I will tell you all about it!

Monday 22nd July
