Kino Kimino
I love using garlic when I cook but I really hate the smell it leaves on my hands, so when Garlic Twist send me one of their handy grinders, I was keen to test it out. It worked so much better tha...

It was the Degree Show at the Edinburgh College of Art this weekend so Tom, Mum and I went along to check it out. I had always dreamed of going to art school here when I was little, as the studios...

You Love Us
Bobbin had the cutest face when we woke up this morning, so Tom took this photo and made it the watch face for my Apple Watch. It's not everyday that I get to craft for my favourite band at work, ...

Manic Street Preachers
Dad was away for an archaeology dig this weekend, so we invited Mum out for a day of ticking of sights from her to-see list in Glasgow. When we saw Grant & Kay before the Idlewild gig last Fri...
Brain Freeze
I took part in my first craft swap on the CO+K boards this week. Our members have been begging for a swapping system for ages, so I thought I should do my homework and give it a try.
The Arches
When I heard there was a new statue of a bear in Princes Street Gardens, I got pretty excited, and then I heard his backstory and I couldn't wait to meet the guy! It was a lovely warm evening, so ...
The Fandom Issue
I woke up feeling determined this morning - we were finally going to launch Issue 32 of Snippets, even if it killed me. Having spent two years in waiting, this is the first issue I'd given up cont...
Bunting Night
I finally finished stitching my cushion for the back of Fig with the help of Plymouth Yarn today and the colours are spot on. It's going to live on the back seat to keep our passengers cosy. Check...
One Month With An iWatch
The sweetest thing happened to me last month, I went to bed, put my hand under my pillow and felt a box. Tom had bought me an iWatch and hidden it there for me to find. I have to admit, I wasn't t...

Night At The Museum
We were lucky enough to be invited to the Museum Lates: Celts at the National Museum Of Scotland tonight, where Idlewild were playing a headlining set. Lots of people we knew were also going, so w...
Each week, I'm going to challenge myself to cook with a new ingredient that I've never used before and this week it was a dragonfruit that I got from Whole Foods at the weekend. My first idea was ...

I've been experimenting with pickling this week and made some seaweed cucumber pickles. I wanted them to be super crunchy, so I didn't pre-boil them which gives them a slightly longer shelf life bu...
We reached Aglio E Olio in our Pasta A-Z and this dish was creamy with garlic mayo and tasted great with Quorn roast chicken. Check out Spaghetti Aglio E Olio on Cut Out + Keep
We were making bluebells at Say It Ain't Sew Tonight. I have a sneaking suspicion that we're going to end up with a massive bouquet of felt flowers by the end of the summer.
Mary Winkler sketched this adorable Crafterella for Superhero Sunday today. I love her glasses! We met up with Mum, Dad and Nana for dim sum at the Imperial Palace this morning. Even though we arr...
