Timeless Treasures Fabric sent me this gorgeous fish print fabric, so I decided to turn it into a tablecloth. Just looking at it makes me want to turn the dining room into a pop-up seafood restaur...


Luckies Of London sent me some of their awesome products for Craft Test on CO+K and I couldn't wait to try them out. The first was a BBQ branding iron, and as we're pescatarians, I had to get crea...


OttLite sent me one of their craft lights for my desk and it's made a huge difference. I used to have to craft early in the day, to get the lighting right, but now I can craft late in to the night ...


Amy Rose created this adorable Crafterella art for Superhero Sunday this week. Twinkie Chan's new book arrived and, now that I can crochet, I'm even more excited to try out some of the projects.


To celebrate Nana's birthday, I made an Aurora Cloud Cake, my most ambition cake decorating project so far. Check out Aurora Cloud Cake on Cut Out + Keep


Last night was the Nespresso Sensory Dining Experience and I was so lucky, winning this Nespresso machine and hundreds of pods for taking the best photo. I think it's because having a meal served ...

We were lucky enough to be invited to the Nespresso Sensory Dining Experience with #CoffeewithCurrys and Joe Blogs at the G&V Royal Mile Hotel in Edinburgh.


Dunino Den
We got to hang out with Louise today before she flies back to Australia, so we jumped in the Figaro and headed out on an adventure. Our first stop was South Queensferry so she could see how the new...


Name Badges
Edinburgh has so many coffee shops that it's hard to keep track of them all. Obadiah is a new one in the Grassmarket so we popped in for a quick coffee after work. We'd ordered takeaway from El T...


Button Gallery
My rainbow inspired spring clean continued today with my buttons. I used to keep my collection in a large jar which I would spill out anytime I needed a button, which wasn't ideal, so I decided to ...


It was Bobbin's first Easter today and we'd invited everyone over for an Easter egg hunt. I made her an Easter Bunny hat and she looked so cute in it, until she turned into Grumpy Cat, so it only ...


We met up with Kenny and Laura for brunch this morning at the new pop-up vegan restaurant in Paradise Palms called The Lucky Pig. I tried some sweetcorn fritters which were really tasty while Tom ...

Tom picked up tickets for a Meet The Brewer night with Fallen Brewery at Brahaus this evening. Calum and Kenny joined us and we tested out five different beers, though we didn't have a chance to m...


I've been experimenting with City Of London Gin for Cocktail Hour this week and infused a batch of Lemon & Raspberry muffins. Check out Lemon & Raspberry Muffins on Cut Out + Keep


Bead Gallery
I was so sad to see Thread & Heather, my favourite shop in the whole of Edinburgh close earlier this month. They had a huge sale on the last day to clear out the store and I bought their sewing...


Bank Job
Our Lego street has been growing again this week when we added the Brick Bank to our collection. It's got a laundrette underneath where you can launder money into the bank vault by popping it in a...


Edinburgh Yarn Festival
We were invited along to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival at the Corn Exchange today. The festival was so much bigger than I had imagined, with hundreds of vendors from around the world selling yarn, p...


I had some resin leftover from the jewellery I was making yesterday, so I decided to make a name necklace using purple beads to look like amethyst. Check out Faux Amethyst Name Necklace on Cut Out...


Resin 8
We met up with Katie & Phil for lunch at Akva this afternoon and then Phil helped me carry all my purchases back from Thread & Heather. I've attempted to make jewellery with resin a few ti...


Suck UK
I've always been a huge fan of SUCK products, so I was in heaven when they let me pick out some products to test out in the CO+K kitchen. I picked some edible eyes, a family cookbook and an awesome...


We've been curious about Timberyard for a while so decided to test it out before craft club tonight. It was a little bit formal for us but we ordered some cocktails and sat in front of the fire wh...


Mother's Day Take Two
We were too ill to see my Mum last weekend, so we made up for missing Mother's Day by rescheduling it for today. I started by cooking everyone coconut milk pancakes topped with smoked salmon, avoc...


Ikea Date
It was the last day that Thread & Heather would be open to the public today which makes me so sad because it was my favourite shop ever. We popped in so I could stock up on supplies one last ti...


Gin Apothecary
I've been busy infusing more syrups for my cocktail cabinet this week and my latest addition is thyme syrup. We met up with Jon after work today and went for dinner at The Blackbird. The food is a...


It's been ages since we treated ourselves to dinner at Kanpai, so Tom took me along this evening and we picked some new things on the menu to to experiment with. These crab rolls were wrapped in c...
