The last few weekends have pretty busy for me, as I prepare for the upcoming Cricut Make-A-Thon conference in Salt Lake City. It’s now just one week until I fly out! I thought I’d give you guys a little look behind the scenes, so you can see how my prep is going. 🙂 First up, I’ve been cutting things out on my Cricut Maker like an absolute mad man! I want to have plenty of projects to show my talk...

As part of the event, Mollie Makes invited me to take part in a craft challenge on the main stage… I was given 30 minutes to upcycle a lampshade, live on stage, against a fellow craft competitor. I went with what I know (and love) – wood, bold colours and geometric design. The result was a Scandinavian-style DIY wooden lampshade, made from...

What’s your go-to drink when the weather’s warm? I’m partial to a strong iced coffee in the day, or a chilled beer when the sun drops. But recently, I thought I’d try whipping up an iced matcha latte for a change. And you know what? It might well be my new summer favourite! This iced matcha latte recipe only needs 4 ingredients. It’s super quick to make (it’s quicker and easier than an iced coffee). Plus, it’s got the great...

This embroidered handkerchief tutorial was made in collaboration with Singer Sewing Machines. But all thoughts and opinions are completely my own!

Honestly, there’s an accessory everything! Whether it’s a specialist foot, an extendable table, a dual needle, speed control… the list goes on. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! Recently,...

This project, like most DIYs before it, started out months ago with the seed of an idea. It was during my trip to Bruges. I was mooching around a décor shop, and came across a footstool. It was very cool: mid-century teak legs, with a really nice fabric covering. I was soooo close to buying it! However, I didn’t love the pattern on the fabric. It was probably an 8 out of 10. But I want 10 out of 10. What...
