Limmy Live
Zea Barker created this amazing collage Crafterella art for Superhero Sunday this week and I think it's very "cut out and keep". We headed through to Glasgow today and went for lunch at Mono.
Everyone keeps saying Bobbin has grown but it's hard for us to tell because we see her everyday... until she does something like this. I've been working on a top secret collaboration for Superhero...
Google sent us a thank you card for the filming we did for them a few months ago. We'd taken the film crew for dinner at Pho while they were here and inside the card was a voucher for dinner, whic...
I had been on the hunt for the perfect bag for my camera since Jenny brought it back from Japan and I finally found the ideal one in the Cambridge Satchel Company sale. The mini pushlock is the ex...
Mondays are usually pretty boring but Keava & Rosa were in Edinburgh today with Brodie, so we got to meet up with them for lunch at Akva. Brodie had grown so much since the last time we saw hi...
Plymouth Yarn sent me some skeins of yarn for Craft Test but I'd underestimated just how much Bobbin would live up to the wool loving cat stereotype. Calum had told me that he makes a cosy little ...
Snow White
When I was little, I used to go to the ballet every Christmas with my Mum, so I was so excited when balletLORENT invited us to see their take on Snow White at the Festival Theatre.
My KitchenAid feels like the gift that keeps on giving because there was an offer for free goodies from Joseph Joseph when Tom ordered it. A set of cutting mats, knives and a kitchen scale arrived ...
Tom surprised me with the new issue of Harley Quinn which came through this letterbox this morning, just in time to distract me from my work. Tom treated me to dinner at The Fountain where we were...
Stag Night
We met up with Calum for cocktails and sweet potato fries at the City Diner after work today. It's been ages since we saw him last so he had lots of photos of Starbuck to show us on his phone.
Drone Queen
Emma Inglis created this gorgeous illustration of Crafterella for SuperheroSunday this week. She had posted this mini video of her sketching it a few weeks ago so I knew it was going to be amazing.
There's a new grilled cheese place called Meltmongers in Bruntsfield and we love grilled cheeses so we tried it out for lunch today. There were so many types to choose from, including dessert gril...
Lucky Cat Lady
I think I must be really easy to buy presents for because I got two of the same lucky cat jumpers this Christmas. Luckily, I was able to take one back and exchange it for this adorable matching dre...
We were lucky enough to try some Shetland Reel Gin at the Foodies Festival last month and they offered to send me a couple of bottles to cook with. I loved the stamps on the box they arrived in fr...
Say It Ain't Sew
Alison invited me along to Say It Ain't Sew this evening, a weekly craft night held at Cabaret Voltaire. It's not often I get to be my fully crazy crafty cat lady in public but tonight it was acti...
Spark Joy
Last year I read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo and loved the ideas in the book, so I was really excited to find out she has a new book called Spark Joy. It's exactly the mot...

The new issue of Thrive Magazine popped through the letter box this morning and I couldn't wait to see one of my recipes in print. I've been baking so much recently, that I thought it would be a g...

Chatty Feet sent me a pair of their Kate Middle-Toe socks for Secret Santa and now my feet are feeling royally cosy. Trimcraft sent me some of their decoupage papers, brushes and glue which I deci...
One of our Secret Santa gifts on CO+K this Christmas was Gasoline by Dame Darcy. I was just settling down to read it for the first time today when I spotted this lovely note on the back of the fro...
Thrive Magazine
We've been inspired to give our dining table a bit of a love after all the Christmas dinner parties, so I crafted a set of animal ear napkin rings. Check out Animal Ear Napkin Rings on Cut Out + K...
Lisa Cinar created this adorable illustration of Crafterella & Bobbin for Superhero Sunday today and I can't help thinking how much it looks like my new profile photo.
I finally got a chance to give my KitchenAid a whizz today, baking macaroons for Duncan & Alex while getting ready for their house party. The mixer took care of the hard work and whisked up th...
Happy New Year! It's 2016 and my resolution this year is to try and keep my blog up to date - hence this post is up today! I've got no excuse for not being organized this year either, because we w...
