DIY Balcony
It was so hot in our house this morning and I said I wished that we could sit out on the balcony. The next thing I knew, we were heading to B&Q to pick up some wood so that Tom could build one.


Tom and I were in the mood for a mini road-trip today so we jumped in the Fig and headed up to Perth. Being a huge fan of towns with silly names, we couldn't resist taking a detour to see the town...


Lucky Cat Dim-Sum
It was Dad's birthday today and one of his favourite things is Dim Sum, so we decided to throw him a surprise Dim Sum party at our house. Being outnumbered by vegetarians, my Dad doesn't usually g...


When I started my drawing yesterday, I had estimated it would only take about 20 minutes to complete but many hours later, I was still working on it. We took a break at lunchtime to meet up with Ed...


A big box of colouring changing pens arrived in the mail from Chameleon Art to try out this morning and I couldn't wait to give them a go. You can lighten the colour of each pen and create really n...



After spending the night camping on Cramond Island we woke up and packed up our damp tents. It had been raining overnight but had stopped just in time for us to head back to land before the tide ca...


Camping on Cramond Island
We went for breakfast at Toast with my Mum this morning, which was a good idea because we had a big day camping ahead of us. In preparation I baked some s'more brownies topped with toasted marshma...


We like to try new places for lunch on Fridays and today we ended up munching on strombolis at Poddington's near Ikea. It was a very strange place so I don't think we'll go back anytime soon.


Artisan Cheesecakes
A new bakery has opened in Bruntsfield specialising in artisan cheesecakes with over 150 flavours. Of course, we want to try every flavour and better get started, so we stopped in to pick up a che...


After finding a packet of steamed bunnies at the oriental supermarket the other week, I was feeling inspired to make my own cute steamed buns. Alex had mentioned that the new Lotus Biscoff cookie s...


I made myself a pair of Crafterella comic strip shoes this morning and they look so cute. I didn't realise how easy it was to decoupage shoes and have lots of fun ideas for others to make too.


We met up with Kenny, Claire & Laura for dinner at Chop Chop this evening where we tucked into dumplings, a seaweed salad, and spring rolls. The peanut dumplings are my favourite but they're a...


Frisky Froyo were celebrating their 3rd birthday today and invited us along for some free froyo. I had a giant strawberry shortcake froyo, while Tom had a chocolate peanut butter brownie froyo, an...


We met up with my Mum & Dad for dinner in Dunfermline this evening where I got super excited to find a little close with hopscotch engraved on the floor. We'd read that an artist would be ligh...


I've never noticed this sign on Candlemaker Row before but we spotted it today after taking my Dad to the Dominion to see Mad Max. Tom got us tickets to the opening of a new bar called OX184 on th...


Lego Tuesday
Today marked my 100th day of inbox zero which is the longest I've every managed to do. For #LegoTuesday this week, I decorated a MiniFigure to look like Crafterella.


I've been on the hunt for a washing basket stool for my dressing table for ages, but couldn't find anything cute enough, so decided to make my own. I used some fabric paint that I was sent from Ja...


It was International Whisky Day yesterday and appropriately, I'd been sent a bottle of Teeling Whiskey to try out and decided to bake an apple & whisky cake. We had some today when Mum & N...


Someone had yarn bombed the bridge over the canal today but we were running late for dinner, so I was only able to take a few photos before rushing off. We met up with Louise & Jamie for dinne...


It was time for the big reveal of Thread & Heather tonight at their opening party and I had one last piece of signage to make for their opening times using scrabble and keyboard keys for the le...


It was the last night to prepare before Thread & Heather opens tomorrow, so Katie & Phil called us in as reinforcements to help with signs and decorations. It was so much fun displaying al...


ScraPerfect sent some of their Embellie Gellie's to our Sidekicks to try out and it came in so handy when trying to place tiny crystals on the heads of pins for my latest project. I'm going throug...


I always forget that Falko isn't open on a Tuesday and when cake cravings hit today, we ended up at The Chocolate Tree with this amazing vegan chocolate tart. Katie & Phil's new shop, Thread &...


This gorgeous custom CO+K stamp arrived from MaeMae & Co this morning and the hipster prints look so good that I'm tempted to stamp everything in the office.


April Nicole created this amazing art starring Lizzy Caplan as Crafterella for Superhero Sunday this week and it left me think who'd I'd like to play me in a film... I settled on Kat Dennings.
