For the gift tags I took inspiration from some of the Christmas songs that I love. One of my childhood Christmas memories is sitting staring […]

diy: personalised wall art
2014_17_06

I often see art for sale and mutter under my breath, ‘I could make that myself…’. I really wanted a frame with lettered playing cards and I knew it would be easy to make my own, but there was one snag; I had no idea where to get hold of the cards. I eventually stumbled […]

Take One Challenge – the reveal (finally)
2014_07_06d

Ok, so the award for the worst blogger ever goes to…. Things got really hectic here for a couple months. As usual when life gets in the way, something had to slip. Apparently, refusing to clean my house and feed my children is not an option. Anyway, I kinda left you hanging for a while […]

Jam and Jerusalem

Do you ever get into creative ruts? I do. You may have noticed, but things went a bit quiet here for a while. It was as if I had lost my blogging mojo. Nothing major had happened. It was just that not much was happening in my brain that was worth committing to a keyboard. I […]

i made this

I bought this grey winter jacket (fake fur, of course daaarlings) in a charity shop recently for the princely sum of £4. I know what you’re thinking – it’s not winter and it’s certainly not my size, and it’s not even that pretty, but I could see it’s potential. Although it is now April, it is still […]
