The Crafty Lass does… Workshop planning!

My mind is bursting to the brim full of ideas, my Pinterest page is certainly busy – but what is best? And what is achievable? A little while ago when I first started to plan for The Crafty Lass, I sent out a little ‘Survey Monkey’ questionnaire for some feedback as to what people would

The Crafty Lass does… Too much!

I really wish there were two of me. Or, if we are going for ideals – perhaps even three or four… Right now, there is simply just so, so, (SO) much whizzing round my mind. Multiple, multiple tabs open that often sends my brain in to overdrive. I actually started to write this blog post at

The Crafty Lass… aims to live The Dream…

It’s June. JUNE. I’m sure I start every blog post on a comment about time, or very British – the weather, but I seriously do not understand where time goes… Our little one is approaching 8 months. For those good at maths, that’s two thirds of a whole year, (what??!!) which to me is literally,

The Crafty Lass reports into new ‘Boss’!

I have had many a different role in my career to date… From envelope stuffing and data entry on oil drilling (random I know!) to pot washer and waitressing… shop assistant, accounts, chocolate forecasting… from working in womenswear fashion buying and merchandising, to number crunching on predicting foodie sales for a national supermarket, guest demonstrating

The Crafty Lass does… MUSH!

I love my little one – more than I can describe. You only need to look at my Instagram feed for #babyspam! However… sometimes – there can be very hard days that don’t always make the Instagram feed and filters! 90% of days are brilliant, but there is the other 10% that don’t quite cut the

A Day in the Life of The Crafty Lass – The Photoshoot!

I’ve said it before and I will say it again – Mark Lord is a photographic genius! I first met Mark when we asked him to do the photography for our wedding nearly three years ago – we were immediately struck and taken by his very natural, fun and unobtrusive style of photography. He has

A new focus, a new direction, a new chapter. A new inspiration!

So what exactly is ‘inspiration‘? And, what is YOUR inspiration? Big, open questions – and where I suspect there are many, MANY different answers. Some people are inspired by nature, or photography, or music, or colour, poetry, their family, their own personal desires and wishes etc. The list goes on. The dictionary defines inspiration as: the process of

The Crafty Lass does… Pinterest!

Isn’t Pinterest amazing. That is just one of those facts of life. Seriously – what did we actually do without it before it existed?! I can while away hours (literally) exploring and searching for new ideas on whatever I happen to be thinking of at that moment in time. If you’ve never used it (A
