The Great #CraftBlogClub Gift Swap

CraftBlogClub Secret Santa 2015 | The World of Suzy Homemaker

Hey you! Happy New Year and welcome back to The World of Suzy Homemaker.

So that's it. Done. Dusted. Over for another year. The tree is down and the posh baubles have been carefully stored. Christmas, my friends, has well and truly left the building. Was it a good one where you are? Did the red-suited fat man put something nice in your stocking? I do hope so.

As you know, Beloved and I don't 'do' Christmas, but even we managed to get in on the act, acquiring not one but THREE yummy new bottles for the OneandSeventy whisky shelf. Mind you, we did also lose a few.

Say no more.

Halloween has officially left the building.

Boo!

But before Samhain disappears entirely, my 2015 Halloween journey would not be complete without a virtual home tour.

Review: eFRAME custom picture frames

Gallery Wall by The World of Suzy Homemaker

I always think pictures make a home, don't you?

Beloved and I enjoy having our own photography and creations on display, so when I was approached by online custom picture framer eFRAME to experience the company's service first hand, I was only too happy to oblige.

With such a huge variety of custom and ready-made frames on offer, my choice wasn't an easy one and the company's new Print & Frame option made my job even more exciting! Using the online tool, I had loads of fun uploading my own photos, to see how they'd look all framed up and ready to hang.

What a great gift idea that is!

Here at The World of Suzy Homemaker, Pinterest is a never-ending source of inspiration.

"No! Really?!" I hear you cry. "I never would've known!"

I admit it. I am a little Pinterest-obsessed but who isn't? It's THE best place to discover all manner of lovely things.

Suzy Homemaker's Homemade Halloween

Halloween Mantel 2013 - www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

With just one month to go, I'm already starting to get excited for Hallowe'en!

Samhain (commonly pronounced "Sow-en") and Yule are the festivals I always like to push the boat out for and I do go a little nuts with the decorating.

Well...I don't think it's nuts but every year, Beloved raises a quizzical eyebrow and threatens not to retrieve from the loft an ever-increasing number of decorations!

He always does, though.

Beloved and I LOVE our Super King bed. Not only is it really comfy, it's so fabulously large it's like sleeping on a football pitch.

Garden makeover: the beginnings of a secret garden

A summer oasis by www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

With summer well and truly underway here in the UK, I'm looking forward to joining Harry in our little oasis for some quality "me time". However, with two pre-pubescents, 10 of their most excitable friends, a footie goal and a full size trampoline in the garden next door, a private area is rapidly becoming more of a necessity than a nicety!

Time for Operation Secret Garden!

The Makings of a Secret Garden by www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

Whilst not my favourite people (and not just for failing to warn us of the local summer camp) OneandSeventy's previous owners did at least have some nice ideas, even if they weren't always well executed.

Handmade greetings cards

Pink flowers and butterfly Birthday Card - www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

 

Making greetings cards has been my creative outlet for years.  I even managed to eke out a part-time income from them for a while. I still make cards for friends and family and enjoy taking commissions for bespoke creations.

Here are a few of my favs.  As you can see, my love of monochrome extends beyond interiors!

I'll add more images as this blog grows.
