August 21
There's no shortage of coffee shops here in Morningside but I'm always on the hunt for new places to work from, so I was super excited to see August 21 had opened a new cafe. We headed along for b...
I've never baked banana bread before, because Tom hates bananas, but I've been missing out because it's delicious. Check out Banana & Walnut Bread on Cut Out + Keep
Crafty Toolbelt
A while ago, I designed Crafterella a crafty toolbelt with pockets for all of her favourite tools and I've always been a little jealous of it. When the Dutch Label Shop sent me hundreds of custom ...
This Is Tokyo
We got an exciting message from Jenny last night, telling us that she would be up in Edinburgh today for a VIP event at Yo Sushi!, and that she'd put us on the guest list. We weren't too sure what...
Tom's starting to really enjoy our mission to cook our way through the pasta alphabet and tonight, he requested Spaghetti Puttanesca because he loves anchovies. Check out Spaghetti Puttanesca on C...
Little Mermaid Camisole
Brown Sheep sent me some of their Nature Spun yarn, all the way from Nebraska, to test out for CO+K. When I put the colours of yarn together, I knew what to make instantly and started crocheting a...
Edinburgh Zoo
We were invited along to Edinburgh Zoo for a visit today and I was really exciting because I haven't been in years, probably since I was on a school trip in Primary School. Our first stop was the ...
I've been cooking a lot again recently and my new kitchen pegboard has been coming in so handy. It's so easy to just grab what you need and then hook it back up when you're done.
Cat Eye
Nunn Design sent me some of their crystal clay to experiment with and I decided to make a pair of Cat Eye Sunglasses. They're very supervillain-esque and now I just need to wait for some sunny weat...
Blueberry Cove Beads asked me if I'd like to make some jewellery tutorials for their subscription boxes and I couldn't resist the chance to moonlight as a jewellery designer. It's the perfect way t...
I was crafting with Sock Dreams today and making a pair of charm cuff socks. They looked so pretty but not as pretty as Bobbin, my assisant who wanted to help model them. Check out Charm Cuff Sock...
Loch Lomond
We headed through to Glasgow this morning and went for breakfast at Meadow Road Coffee. It's the perfect place for people watching, so we sat in the window while I tucked into a granola pot.
It's not often that you're happy to find something dead in the mailbox but I was so excited to find this doll from Living Dead Dolls, a late Christmas present from our Secret Santa giveaway.
It was Phil's birthday a few days ago, so I decided to bake him some mini Pop Tart cookies using my new message rolling pin from Luckies. Check out Pop Tart Cookies on Cut Out + Keep
Black & Blue
Inspired by the black & blue brand on my BBQ iron from Luckies, I decided to make some Black & Blue Burgers with black beans, blue cheese and sweet potato. They were really good so I'll be ...
Pop Tart
I've been busy inventing recipes with my Crafterella toaster for Selfie Toasters this week and cooked up some Superhero Pop Tarts this morning. Check out Superhero Pop Tarts on Cut Out + Keep
I love waking up to see this little face looking at me and she was super cuddly this morning. Dad and Tom were busy watching football today, so I took Nana and Mum to Burger for hotdogs.
We must have walked past Störtebäcker dozens of times without ever noticing it. It's a tiny little bakery, the size of a door, with just enough space for one person to stand inside while picking ou...
Timeless Treasures Fabric sent me this gorgeous fish print fabric, so I decided to turn it into a tablecloth. Just looking at it makes me want to turn the dining room into a pop-up seafood restaur...
Luckies Of London sent me some of their awesome products for Craft Test on CO+K and I couldn't wait to try them out. The first was a BBQ branding iron, and as we're pescatarians, I had to get crea...
OttLite sent me one of their craft lights for my desk and it's made a huge difference. I used to have to craft early in the day, to get the lighting right, but now I can craft late in to the night ...
Amy Rose created this adorable Crafterella art for Superhero Sunday this week. Twinkie Chan's new book arrived and, now that I can crochet, I'm even more excited to try out some of the projects.
To celebrate Nana's birthday, I made an Aurora Cloud Cake, my most ambition cake decorating project so far. Check out Aurora Cloud Cake on Cut Out + Keep
Last night was the Nespresso Sensory Dining Experience and I was so lucky, winning this Nespresso machine and hundreds of pods for taking the best photo. I think it's because having a meal served ...
