Instalife: October Was Good

Happy Friday guys! October officially ROCKED. I had 2 migraines all month. 2. I was completely shocked and didn’t quite know what to do with myself as I’ve been having 2-3 per week previously.

However, once it sunk in that October was going to be a ‘well’ month. I did as much as I could without triggering attacks. Here’s what I got up to with a little round up from my Instagram feed.


 Autumn/Fall Mantel Decoration / DIY Gold Leather Leaf Keyring

G and I had a pumpkin carving date / Searching for conkers in the park


Seeing the results of our WI’s crochet plant exhibition / A stunning tree in Cambridge

Pretty flowers in the Botanic Gardens / Flowers from my garden 


Beautiful sunsets over the river Cam / Spotting the cutest trike in the city

New local cafe Afternoon Tease / Watching the GBBO final at the Clandestine Cake Club


Relisting the Russian Doll Rings in my store / Announcing my Etsy Ambassador role

Hitting 2000 followers on Twitter (OMG!) / Launching Scrabble Tile Necklaces


Bathroom cabinet DIY with my friend Jess / Preparing goodie bags for a craft party

Played spot the word with my IG followers / Obligatory Tammy picture (and xmas PJs) 

I love these round-ups because they are like a little diary of what I have achieved each month. I have announced in my newsletter that there are some exciting new plans ahead for Claireabellemakes. I’ll soon be offering Craft Parties for adults in Cambridge and I can’t wait to share the details with you all! Watch this space.

Let me know in the comments below if you are on Instagram! I’m always looking for new people to follow.

  1. I thought your WI/Botanics project was amazing! The crochet plants looked so good nestled among the real ones 🙂 I love the Botanics in Autumn <3

  2. These pictures are just glorious – what a great month! I was thinking about you last night as I had a really bad headache that wouldn’t shift all day despite paracetamol and I thought this is just a taste of what migraine sufferers have to put up with. Really glad you’ve been feeling so well and made the most of it 🙂

  3. What a lovely month. You are right about these round ups, sometimes we fail to see what we have achieved so its lovely to have it documented. Congratulations on your Etsy role and for reaching 2000 followers – exciting times. Em xx
