Handmade Monday #344


It’s Handmade Monday time! Handmade Monday is our weekly link up for handmade ideas, crafts and recipes. Creative bloggers can share their tutorials and projects and we can all check out all the ideas and get inspired.

Our last baby to “fly the nest” has gone! I am both happy and sad of course. Happy for him, in his own place doing proper adulting, and sad for me as I miss them all. When our daughter moved out back in 2020 I relocated all my craft stuff from our dining room table into a corner of her old room/our guest room. Now it’s time for another rearrange. I’m moving up into the attic room, which is huge, with all my stuff and the current craft/guest room can become a proper lovely guest room. A lot of our rooms seem to have a mishmash of furniture too so I’ve been swapping things around a bit to try and get a more cohesive look. That’s the plan anyway.

I honestly can’t believe how much craft stuff I seem to have stashed in all corners of the house. I love a good upcycle so I don’t throw anything away that might be useful one day, it’s an affliction! I’m most definitely at the worse before it gets better stage and I think this is going to take a while. I promise I will share the results once the space is respectable.

Enough about my mess making, let’s check out the features from last week’s Handmade Monday now.
