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!

Coming soon to a Folksy Store near you!

Hello Crafters!

I hope you have all had a wonderfully crafty weekend. I think I am getting back to normality now. Last week was a busy one for me; this week is not looking quite so manic. You will have seen on the blog a few holiday related posts. You can read my top travel tips for crafty jet setters here, or if you want to read all about my trip to the USA, you can do that here. Anyway I have a lot to cover over the last seven days so buckle up and let’s get on with it!

USA Round-Up!

Yosemite in the Sunshine

Hello Crafters!

For those of you who don’t know, I have been away on holiday!

Some of you may have seen my travel guide for crafters, if you haven’t  you can see it here. Otherwise keep reading to see how Mr Craft’s and I travelled two three states in 10 days!

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.

The Craft Journal – 9th September

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.
