Hygge times from March – enjoy the spring

Here is my Hygge times – well some of them – which happened as March unfolded, as we enter April it is spring showers and bursts of sun, make the most of appreciating every season and try to look for what you love about it.

During March one of my absolute favorite things has been my new MUG- an actual mug for my drinks themed to RED NOSE DAY.

Red nose day, for those who don’t know, is a charity fund-raising day which happens every two years in the UK, and it is supported by comedians hence the red nose.

My Johanna Basford Colouring Day-To-Day Calendar

I am so happy with this treat from the sales of Johanna Basford Colouring Calendar that I wanted to tell you about it and show you how lovely her artwork is to colour.

This is a wonderful set of colouring to do, as you may know I love colouring , see the Whimsy Colouring challenge HERE and more Johanna talk Colouring Fun – Johanna Basford

There is something so calming and creative about colouring and there are some amazing results that can be had.

What I liked about the idea of this was that the pictures were smaller and I thought probably faster to colour, although it’s not a race I wanted to feel I had completed more pictures from my growing colouring collection.

Life with Zozie January 2017

Hi all, so good to catch up with you and I thought today I would do a bit of a ‘my latest’ type post, it feels like a good way to say hello and get you up to date with some of what is running around my head.

January is often not an easy month is it, I LOVE Christmas and as such although start the new year with a fresh start mentality I think it still is not the positive boost to me that November and December is, in fact I love Autumn so much and Winter can sometimes feel not as fun BUT I am determined to embrace every single season and its joys and what I love BEST about winter is the COSY aspect. 

It is the season for warmth (even if its easy to feel a bit chilly) and for hot drinks (same in Summer though!) and for blankets see Crochet Fun HERE and in my case ‘slankets’ … more on that later.

I wanted to tell you what I am up to, reading, craft and more this January .

For starters…

Whimsy Colouring Challenge 2017

Well I love a colouring session – full of focus..creativity. ..and a bunch of pens with pretty colours. ..so I decided to start a Colouring Challenge here at the blog…

The rules…

1. Have 6 colouring books (I do hope this is inclusive to colourists …feel free to adjust it to your needs)

2. A bunch of pencils/pens 

3. Enthusiasm 

4. A note to do the art😊

This challenge is to every month pick from your 6 books a picture to colour in the colours that best suit the season to YOU. 

Each book will be used twice for the challenge but do 6 in a row then start again so you rotate them well…


It’s going to be fun…I am going to select my books from my (heaving) colouring shelf…I am going to pick a varying selection. 

Feel free to share them via my craft club on Facebook – search ‘whimsyandcosy  craft club’
