CAT Week

CAT Week: 16 – 23 September with guest mod, Nadia @cottagenotebook


Hi Everyone, I’m Nadia @cottagenotebook and I’m coming to you from Ireland which is very green, wet and cold at the moment. Thank so much for the amazing week on #craftastherapy_newFiona, I really enjoyed seeing all of the projects on display and I even have a #liula scarf in my projects list for this winter!


For those that know me you know that I combine my IG feed with the great outdoors because I love gardening/exploring as much as I love crafting. Autumn is my favourite season between spiced lattes, cold nips in the air and all of that wonderful world of inspiring colour changes in nature. So this week I would love to see all of your projects either In nature (i.e.go outside) or inspired by nature (in case it’s a terrible week and none of us get out because of the rain) . So share your images using #craftastherapy_outside.

I’m excited to start sharing and I will be showing projects from the regular tag #craftastherapy this week as well. I really am excited to get to know you all a little better.


Wow, I am so impressed at the number of you who ventured outside today or took nature into your projects with those gorgeous autumnal colours or crafts. I chose 2 from the #craftastherapytag and two from @craftastherapy_outsideas I thought that was fair.
Please continue to share your projects using these tags as I will be choosing from there tomorrow.

Good morning all.

I thought we could start this morning with Afmaeli by @homebylouise.
Congratulations Louise and what a gorgeous sweater finished just in time for the autumn/winter season.

Happy Monday everyone and I’m hoping to share some outdoor joy with you all this week. Don’t forget the tags #craftastherapy and #craftastherapy_outside so I can find you.


Well hello all, how are we getting through Monday? How about a pick me up in the form of this beautiful needlepoint by @rosaechocolat

I love seeing all different types of crafts from all of you, I may even find a new one here this week. Do you have many hobbies or are you monogamous crafter?


Eveining all, it was quite hard for me to get a clean grid so excuse the borders 🙈but drum roll please *******

Clockwise around the grid starting from top left we have @sweetbellyjordanfollowed by the autumnal flatlay from @silverpebble2 those gorgeous tray of pumpkins from and the fabulous card wreath from @scrapandcardsbyirina *************

It has been one amazing week getting to know all of you a little better and sharing those wonderful #craftastherapy_outside images. I’m so sorry I can’t feature everyone, so many amazing projects that I wanted to highlight.
