The Crafty Lass does… Easter biscuits!

Looking to do something for Easter that is fun, cheap to make, relatively easy, and you get to eat it at the end?! Why not make Mary Berry’s ‘Easter Biscuits‘? Here is my attempt… Mmmmmm tasty 🙂 Top tip! – always allow the icing to dry thoroughly, otherwise it won’t set properly and you’ll end Read More

Kirstie Allsopp – The Handmade Fair!

Anything that involves Kirstie Allsopp and craft – and we are on to a winner…I find her so inspiring! Just seen that she is hosting The Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace from 18th-20th September 2015 – and in such an iconic, historic and British venue, what’s not to love! Ticket’s aren’t on sale yet – Read More

She Who Is Brave, Is Free…

Well, I’ve done it – I’ve only gone and done it. Some people have said that I am ‘brave’, some have said ‘I could never do it’, but mainly people have said ‘Wow!’, ‘How exciting!’, ‘Brilliant news!’… So, this Crafty Lass is now a ‘full-time’ Crafty Lass. In other words, I didn’t quit the day Read More

Happy Mail :)

Aren’t sisters the best?? Ok, not all sisters are – but mine is. A heart of gold and so clever and creative! I got sent some ‘Happy Mail’ today. Not for any particular reason, other than to make me smile. A funky card design, some lovely words inside, and to top it all – even a Read More

Up, Up and Away!

Finally some sunshine today! Hoorah! And with such a glorious bright day pouring through our windows, I couldn’t help but re-look at our wonderfully bright wedding ‘guest’ print (instead of a book) on the wall in our hallway. Our wedding was mildly themed around the fantastic film ‘UP‘. If you haven’t seen it – why not?! Read More

Brackley Farmers Market

Well, another cold and grey day over the lovely Northamptonshire market town of Brackley. There have been quite a few of these recently. (Did anyone see the eclipse yesterday??) I said this in an earlier post – but where exactly is this thing called ‘Spring’? It seems to have gone A.W.O.L. I have also been Read More

Food Memories

I did something wild and crazy on Monday evening – I applied to a new BBC TV Programme called: The Box! It comes from the makers of Masterchef, and I am guessing from their description – it will be similar to the ‘Invention test’ – where you have to make something wonderful with whatever ingredients Read More

First Wedding Anniversary – PAPER!

I was taken away for a surprise weekend this weekend – it led to a new craft, a new set of inspirations and a reconfirmed realisation I definitely married the right man! So, one whole year since our big day. And this year… all I knew was I had to pack a bag, and be ready Read More

The Crafty Lass does… Paper Flowers!

I was bought a truly amazing birthday present – something really REALLY brilliant. A glue gun. YES! Today – I was planning to go to the gym, do some needed food shopping – but no, no today became a lovely crafty filled day of tea, leftover birthday cake, and paper flower making! I have wanted to Read More

The Crafty Lass does… Cupcakes!

So, it’s the eve of my 32nd birthday. Uh oh… well, I’ve got cake to console my ever growing age. I know I’m not THAT old… I mentioned in my last post how quickly a year had gone… But where have 32 years gone?! Saying that, my husband pointed out to me recently – I’m probably Read More
