WAL18 daily hashtags and weekly themes

The Marching Forward WiP-Along has begun and things are off to a great start, with a few people having finished WiPs already! (I’m not one of those people…) For some of you, just working your way through your WiP list will be more than enough to be going on with. Others may enjoy having other […]

WiP Tips – WAL18

It can be a daunting task sorting through all those WiPs and deciding what to work on. So the fabulous hosts have come up with a few tips that will hopefully help the choosing process a little easier, plus a few extra tips to help you keep going during the WiP-Along. So, in no particular […]

Meet the Hosts

The Autumn WiP-Along on Instagram was hosted by myself (@goslingandplumb) and Charlie (@lovecharlie.co). It was great to plan with Charlie and the WiP-Along was really successful – but really busy! We were both working full time, there was a lot of activity on the WiP-Along hashtags and at times it was hard to keep up […]

Looking back at 2017

2017 has been a much more settled, stable year than 2016  was. My job has continued to be pretty stress free, which has meant that I’ve had plenty of time to spend on all sorts of crafty activities! This year I have also discovered the wonderful crafting community on Instagram. It’s been great connecting with […]

Easter biscuit inspired baked oats

I don’t often bake because I’m trying (some days harder than others) to follow slimming world. If I bake, I eat most of what comes out of the oven in one sitting! Over Easter weekend I made cornflake nests with my friend’s kids (which doesn’t really count as baking, but definitely resulted in delicious treats). […]

Find me on Instagram @goslingandplumb if you’d like […]

This week…

…I took a trip to London to see ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’. It’s the funniest thing I’ve watched in ages – you really should go and see it! My brother ended up on stage propping up scenery – that’s him on the left… …I worked on week two of the Moorland Blanket on the London underground, on […]

Discovering hygge

Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga): cosiness of the soul – and so much more… I was given ‘The Little Book of Hygge’ for Christmas. I’d seen the cover a few times on Instagram posts/facebook, but hadn’t really paid much attention to what it was all about. But as I started reading it I realised that hygge is […]

Family heirloom

I absolutely love family history. I also love old furniture. So when my uncle emailed to ask if I’d like a roll top desk that used to belong to Great Aunty Gwen, I leapt at the chance without even knowing what it looked like or how big it was! Thankfully, it’s the perfect size for […]
