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

An explosion of colour!

This time last year, I was knee deep in petals, and panic. It’s coming up to our first wedding anniversary – where does time go?! Of course I can’t help reminiscing about what a wonderful craft proj… I mean, day it was! 😉 Our (who are we kidding, my) colour scheme… I couldn’t decide. So, Read More

The Crafty Lass does… Cushions!

The John Lewis remnant bin, is literally one of the most exciting places on earth. Fact. You never know what you might find! Yesterday, I stumbled across two ex-display childrens curtains, in bright and beautiful stripes. At £10 each – absolute bargain. It would be more than that for the original fabric alone! I have Read More

I was asked a very interesting question at work today – and it really got me thinking… What are the latest home baking trends of 2015? My first and immediate thought was the latest craze of ‘new’ sugars. Which, to be honest, I don’t fully understand…isn’t it still just sugar – just disguised in a ‘healthier’ Read More

Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your LIFE!

Inspiration of the day…some wise words from Caroline Gardner: “Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life” I LOVE a good greeting card (and shoes!) who doesn’t? When the post lands on the doormat and you realise that amongst the dreary white bills is a brightly coloured envelope, specially addressed Read More

Milton Keynes Handmade and Vintage Fair

Well, what a treat I was in for yesterday. I nipped into Milton Keynes to pick up a few birthday surprises from good old reliable John Lewis. I expected to be parked, into the shops, and out again within 30 minutes. Little did I know that the Milton Keynes Handmade and Vintage fair was all Read More

I found my hedgehog in a box of ribbons.

I know what you are thinking – I thought this was a new blog about a craft-making-foodie&design-loving-crafty lass – not nature and hedgehogs? Don’t worry – the fabric flowers, Christmas decorations, wedding ideas and cupcake making will be here in future posts! For now, I am just happy that I have found my hedgehog. Well, nearly… Read More
