This is an amazing website that highlights ways people have come together across differences, and the stories are inspiring. Highly recommend. After all, we all have a lot more in common than we sometimes think.
How oil companies misled the public into believing that plastic would be recycled. This is why it is so important to try to use as little plastic as possible, because it’s not getting recycled the way we think it is.

My Favourite Pins This Week
If you are looking for an incredible weeknight meal for the family – or even if you are having dinner with the people in your bubble – this is an easy and delicious dinner idea. I love how they are all baked together in one dish in the oven with the melted cheese on top! And you can use a smaller dish for fewer people, too. No rules saying you have to make 10 of these, after all! Although, it is very hard to stop at just one. Pinterest link is here, and the full recipe is over here.
If you are a lover of pumpkin treats, then I think you are really going to love these pumpkin chocolate chip bars. They are like a wonderfully rich cookie bar that has all the flavours of the season, and chocolate, of course! Pinterest link is here, and the full recipe can be found here.
I always really love wall hangings and craft DIYs that involve yarn (of course!) and this is a beautiful one. It’s constructed with a wooden dowel, some embroidery hoops cut in half, and yarn of your choosing! I think this looks really cool. Pinterest link is here, and the full DIY is right over here.
This is such a wonderful upcycling idea at the perfect time. If you have some tomato cages that are at the end of the season or maybe looking a bit past their prime, try this DIY- wire cutters to trim the legs, and a can of gold spray paint, and suddenly you have these elegant plant stands. I really love it when something simple like this looks SO good. Pinterest link is here, and the full DIY is here.
If you are into sewing and a bit tired of sewing masks for you and everyone you know, what about a pretty scrunchie? This is a great free pattern guide for a basic scrunchie, as well as with the ties. The fabric shown here is bright and psringy, but you could also sew them in rich fall colours, or whatever you like. Pinterest link is here, and the full tutorial is over here.
How is it the last weekend in September already? I’ve recently cast on for a new sweater, because the best thing about fall and winter is OF COURSE sweater weather! Wishing you all a lovely weekend of crafting and relaxation.
