When I found out the Alison worked at George Herriot's school, which inspired Harry Potter, I couldn't resist asking her what it was like to work in Hogwarts and then she invited us for a tour.


SaraRRocha created this adorable sketch of Crafterella & Bobbin for Superhero Sunday today and I felt a little like a crafty superhero myself as I got up super early to craft.


This week's British Bake Off Challenge was to bake biscotti so I attempted my own entry with chocolate orange & hazelnut flavour. I hope I make it through! Check out Chocolate Orange & Hazelnu...


Jackalopes have definitely become a trending theme in my summer crafting and I've just put the finishing touches on this new hat stand for our bedroom. It's made from a cheap rabbit mask, some wood...


Flavourly sent us one of their new craft beer boxes, much to the delight of Tom, who wanted to start cracking bottles open straight away. I cooked him a batch of honey beer nuts to have as a bar s...


It's not everyday then I get free shoes in the mail, so this morning I felt especially lucky when this gorgeous pair of Lotta From Stockholm clogs arrived for me to craft with.


Hedwig & The Angry Inch
I've never really watched The Great British Bake Off before, which is a little surprising because I get sent all the cookbooks, so this season, I've decided to watch and bake along. Check out Lemo...


Foodies Festival
We had press passes for the Foodies Festival down at Inverleith Park this weekend so we headed along to check it out. The best way to describe the festival was like a giant farmers market, with do...


Get Your Own Back
After not seeing Ailsa in years, we got to see her twice this week and met up for cocktails at Paradise Palms. It was the perfect place for people watching and trying to spot comedians. Katherine R...


Hoot The Redeemer
We haven't seen Ailsa in years so I was so excited when she said she was free tonight to come to the Festival Magazine launch party. We started with drinks at Hoot The Redeemer, a new fun-fair the...


I've been reorganising my craft space a lot recently and one of the tedious tasks was winding all of my embroidery thread onto new cat-shaped card spools. They look so much cuter and tidier but it ...


Emma Munger created this amazing comic strip of Crafterella & Bobbin called Decou-Paws and I laughed so much when it first arrived in my inbox. I love all the little details and jokes hidden in...


I rediscovered my craft idea book that I started when I lived in Dundee and haven't seen since we moved out of London. Every time I had a craft idea, I'd draw it in my book and if I ever got around...



I finally finished embroidering our new animal ear pillows and we couldn't wait to jump into bed and give them a shot. Check out Glow In The Dark Animal Ear Pillows on Cut Out + Keep


My new glasses were ready to pick up today, so we headed along to collect them before going to see Inside Out at the Dominion. Everything has become so clear and I kept challenging Tom to read far...


The latest habit I've been trying to gain for 30 days is to knit or crochet a little every day and it's going really well. I've packed a project bag and every time I leave the house, I take it with...


Starbuck The Kitten
Makes Kit sent me a jewelry stamping kit in my big box of goodies and the first idea that popped to mind was to make a cat collar. It was great timing because Calum & Harriet had invited us ov...


The weather has been awful recently, so with the rain battering against the windows, I've been hiding away at my craft desk and getting creative. First on my crafty to-do list was a project using o...


Jake Romano created this super adorable sketch of Crafterella & Bobbin for Superhero Sunday this week. Sublime Stitching sent me a packet of their glow-in-the-dark thread to try out on my late...


My absolutely favourite dessert is creme brûlée but I've never been brave enough to try making it at home before. Armed with the blowtorch I'd bought especially for the occasion over 10 years ago,...


It's been a while since I made pancakes so I decided to treat Tom to an extra big plate double chocolate chip pancakes this morning. He looked very happy after he'd finished them. Check out Double...


I haven't had an eye test since I lived in Dundee and things were starting to look a little blurry so I had an appointment at Specsavers. Eye tests have become a lot more futuristic since my last t...


Dad had got Tom tickets to see jazz tonight, so Mum and I treated ourselves to dinner at Redwood. We shared the amazing salad I had last time and the halloumi fritters. There's so much I want to tr...


It felt like a "dream come true" when all these gorgeous socks arrived from Sock Dreams to craft with this morning. They already look so pretty but I have lots of great ideas for customising them!
