It’s freezing outside, so staying indoors and working on projects (apart from the days where I’ve had to get to work in the snow) has been a perfect plan. I’ll apologise now for the rubbish photos-I normally take them in the conservatory but it is too cold out there and the snow on the roof…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-28th February
A winter trip to the seaside is a very popular past time, especially on clear, crisp days such as those we are having currently. Blowing away those cobwebs and letting the children explore and burn off their excess energy seemed like a good plan for the day, so yesterday we headed off to Hunstanton (aka…… Continue reading Splashing, strolling and bowling
Yesterday WordPress informed me that Craftandothercrazyplans has been in existence for two whole years! That means it is two years since I sat in the car with Mr C, nervously waiting to go into the dentist and writing a list of possible blog names. Two years since I did all of the setting up, diving…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday and Second Blogversary-21st February

Our winter visits have mainly consisted of feeding, watering and cleaning out the chickens, harvesting the odd parsnip and checking for damage after each of the winter storms.

Here’s the link to my original post, in case you want to know more about what I got up to last year. I’m reposting now so that you can…… Continue reading Doing Lent Differently-Updated!
I missed WIP Wednesday as I was so busy and didn’t think ahead to schedule a post, so I thought I would combine it with a finished object post too. My FO was actually two papercraft projects made for, and sent to, a friend who is opening her own yarn store this weekend! I’ll start…… Continue reading A WIP Wednesday/FO Friday mash up
Until a couple of months ago, I’d not really heard the term ‘single use plastics’, but recently it’s been a topic of much discussion and awareness has been raised. This site explains more about what they are, and why they are such a huge environmental issue. I’ve always been fairly environmentally conscious, and so I’ve…… Continue reading Turning Back The Tide Of Single Use Plastics
