This week I found myself in the lucky position of being nominated twice for the same award. Both the lovely Blinking Cat and Isn’t She Crafty nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award, which was really kind. Both blogs are fab, go and take a look! I’ve received this award before, but I keep following new blogs so I’ll…… Continue reading An Awards First!
UK readers will know that Thursday was a tad blowy here thanks to Storm Doris. She caused a fair amount of havoc locally in the form of blown over trees, power cuts and lorries tipped on their sides. I was at work in the morning and drove home at lunch, and it was not a…… Continue reading Cheers Doris!
It’s been another busy week here, with progress being made on the camouflage blanket. Part 4 is now complete and all of the ends on parts 1-4 have been sewn in neatly ready for joining. I was so excited I had to lay all of the parts out to see how they’ll look together (if…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-22nd February
For the first time this year, I have been to the allotment. Mr C has made several visits over the winter so it was exciting to see the difference and admire his hard work. So much has happened there, and the recent (unexpectedly) warm weather meant we had a whole afternoon there on Sunday. Compared…… Continue reading The Allotment in February
Today marks a whole year since Craftandothercrazyplans was ‘born’. 52 weeks or 366 days (cheers leap year!) of sharing craft, gardening, parenting and all of the other ponderings that have come to mind in that time. The most amazing thing is that other pe0ple (you guys!) are reading it, and commenting too. When I started…… Continue reading Happy Blogversary To Me!
It’s a non crafty post from me tonight as I’m celebrating a mini victory towards overcoming my biggest phobia. Those who know me personally also know that I am terrified of the dentist. Today I went to my appointment and didn’t cry, I managed to breathe through my whole check up and ‘allowed’ the dentist…… Continue reading In the Dentist’s Chair
Well, this week came up with a surprise WIP and it’s been turned into a finished object already! On Monday I was clearing a cupboard and found this: It had been packed away for at least 18 months, possible longer and harks back to a time when I was delusional enough to think I would…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-15th February
Today is Valentine’s Day (just in case you’ve missed the constant reminders everywhere!), a day to celebrate love of all kinds, a day many strongly dislike for various reasons, including its over commercialisation. Personally, I don’t mind it; I’ve spent the day with my mum and my children as Mr C is in the middle…… Continue reading Love is…
That age old question that every crafter has to ask themselves at one point or another (or at many points!) Today has been a grey day, the sky heavy with snow (the powdery kind, not the fun stuff), and we’ve been stuck indoors as my son is poorly. I’ve been crocheting whilst he rests and…… Continue reading To Buy or Not to Buy?
It’s been a couple of weeks since I did a WIP Wednesday post but here we are again! The camouflage blanket is still going strong, I’ve only managed 2 and a bit squares (out of 5) for part 4, but I have a day off work tomorrow thanks to having a poorly child off school…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-8th February
