Unboxing: Scheepjes Studio Pack

Hello Lovelies!
How are you all doing? I hope you're in the middle of a superbly creative week?

I'm feeling super excited about this post, as it's the first time that I've made an "unboxing video"!
A video of me taking a product out of the box for the first time. I'll be giving you my opinion and impressions about the product, which I hope will not only inspire you along your creative paths, but give you an informed and objective view of some of the products available to us as crafters and crocheters.

Today....as it's my fist "unboxing" I thought I'd do something rather special......I'm taking a look at the totally awesome....Scheepjes Studio Pack!

Check out the video below as I give my creative space a makeover using the brand spanking new Studio Pack:

  1. Large magnetic notice board (with materials to hang on wall)
  2. Small magnetic notice board (with material to hang on wall)
  3. Swatch cards (of chosen yarn pack)
  4. Magnets (perfect for applying to the back of your swatch cards)
  5. Scheepjes craft tin (for your bits'n bobs)

Well....That was pretty fun! Taking a look at a new product and giving it a review.
I hope you found this video useful?
Like I mentioned in the video, I plan on doing these unboxing videos quite frequently, so that we can take a look together at some of the cool crafting products available on the market.

I'm also going to get stuck into doing a few book revues....so stayed tuned!

 Have a lovely rest of the week hookers!

Matt's Journal

Hello Lovelies!
I do hope that your week is going well? I'm sure for many of you that means getting back into the routine of "normal life". I've started back at work and I'm riding the normal buzz I get at the start of the year. A mixture of feelings from "let's make it the best" and "anything is possible".

I understand that it's a bit of a cliché, The whole "new year, new me", but I'm going with it. I really feel excited about what's to come. I'm diving into my blog and enjoying the focus it gives me.
Rehearsals are easing up a little at work and so I have a little more free time in the day to be a bit more consistent with my blog work. It really feels like a transition phase, as I count down the last 12 weeks that I have working on the show and gearing up to having this open block of time.
Time for me, where literally anything is possible.

So January 2018 has begun (God I remember the hype about it turning 2000.....and it seems like yesterday! YIIIIIKES!!) and it's already off to a promising start.
This months Simply Crochet has been released and I'm more than happy to say that I'm in it once again! I have a double page spread which they've called "Matt"s Journal". 


It's basically me jabbering on about how and what I do when I lose my creative mojo. It's a topic that I find really interesting, how and when we feel inspired and what to do when the feeling of inspiration is nowhere to be seen.
I'd never really considered this topic, that was until I was recommended the book "Big Magic" by Elisabeth Gilbert.

The book was hugely inspiring to me and gave a really interesting perception to creative living and thinking, as well as being open enough to trust and give your creative ideas a chance.
It was my inspiration behind the Simply Crochet article......maybe it was a little deeper than I normally go, but I hope you enjoy it non the less.
 

As well as having "Matt's Journal" published in the magazine, I've also been working on my own journal. Well...actualy not really a journal, but a diary/planner where I have space to write down my ideas and thoughts as well as plan my day to day bits 'n bobs. 

I have a confession when it comes to diaries. I actually have a bit of an addiction. I always buy diaries even if I don't really need them. It's like this never ending quest to find the perfect planner that is going to fix all of my problems and make me the best version of myself I can possibly be.....as if that exists! Still I keep searching!!!!

This year I've settled on a page per day diary from Kiki K, I chose this back in November when I went to London for a few days. I like that it's very simple, but I have space each day to plan as well as add some notes at the bottom of the page. It's doing the job so far!


Let's see if this turns out to be the life changing journal I've been searching for!!!
If I can stick to the goals I've placed within my journal...it's going to be a good year!
Let's see....I  guess discipline is the key!!! EEEEEK!
  
Wishing you all a lovely day!..

New Year, New Yarn!

Hello Lovelies!!!
A MAAAAAAHUUUUUUUSIIIIIIVE Happy New year to you all!
I do hope you had a splendid holiday season and that you started the new year in good spirits and good health?

I was lucky enough to go home this year for Christmas, something that I just love to do. It was a great time spent with my family, eating rich and indulgent foods and having a moment to contemplate the past year, as well as look forward to the next.
I'm making plans and I can not tell you how excited am to see where these plans may take me over the course of the year. I haven't been blogging so much, as I wanted to get organised. Filling out my diary and knowing what was what before 2017 turned into 2018.



I'm ready for it now though and I hope you are also? I'll be back with a new post on Wednesday....but until then I wanted to take a moment to anounce the winner of the very exciting giveaway that I mentioned last post.

The winner will receive a full set of the GORGEOUS and brand spanking new yarn from Scheepjes...it"s called "Our Tribe" and it's truly scrumptious. (It's the yarn stacked in a pyramid on top of my shelves. How's that for some serious yarn porn!)

To see if you were the lucky winner, check out the raffle video below. 


I hope you enjoyed the giveaway? If you were not the lucky winner this time, you can still get your mits on this yummy yarn by visiting the Scheepjes website to find stockists in your area or by buying the yarn here at Woolwarehouse!

Thanks for all of your support over the past year! I appreciate your love and energy more than you can imagine! See you soon hookers!
