Tom and I spotted this amazing Angry Birds cake in the window of a bakery in Marchmont today. It was so awesome! I then spotted a set of tap handles on the back of this plumber's van.

Google came to visit us this morning and we were a little nervous about which biscuits to get, so we settled on Tunnock's tea cakes and caramel wafers. In the evening, we used the Facebook restaur...

There was a lovely article about Cut Out + Keep in the Daily Mail this morning. It was awesome seeing Crafterella featured too. We started shooting some test scenes for CO+K TV today and it's loo...
We found the most amazing lighting shop inside a church in Newington today. It was the perfect place for taking photos and we managed to find the lighting fixtures we needed to make our fox lamp.
Eurovision 2013
We went for dinner at the Caley Sample Rooms this evening. It's a cool pub that looks like a barn with all kinds of beer on tap. I had risotto, with a poached egg on top, washed down with a bottle...

It was a lovely sunny day today and Mum brought Nana through for a visit. We started off with a coffee at Nana's favourite pub, the Old Chain Pier where we had an amazing view over the Forth.

Inspired by an idea for an awesome new coffee table, my parents took us to B&Q to buy wood this morning. We repaid the favour with a box of donuts from Krispy Kreme next door. We were mesmeris...


We went for dinner at YummyTori tonight and tucked in to some delicious Japanese tapas. Afterwards we went to the Cameo, where I had a submarino hot chocolate. I love these teabags!
Donkey & Friends
I finished constructing the fox light that donkey & friends sent me at Christmas today to realise it's actually a lot bigger than the small table light I thought it would be. Not to worry thou...
Yeah Yeah Yeah
As predicted, it was rainy and grey today after our first proper day of summer yesterday. We had lunch at Black Medicine today, where we shared a panini and millionaire shortbread. We listened to...
One Day Of Summer
It felt like the first real day of summer today, and if last year is anything to go by, it will be the last until a mini-heatwave in October. Tom returned home with a feast of sushi for lunch and,...
Chapter One
This week's to-do list is filled with interviews, both to write and answer, but there's a lot of fun crafting too so I won't complain. My first task was to finalise the content list for the book, ...

I finally found the perfect case to keep my papercut eyelashes in. They're so delicate, so this is the perfect way to store them and the case is so cute. Tom and I went for lunch at Tony Macaroni...
