Try this: handmade leather and denim apron

I don’t really share many recipes on the blog – and when I do, it’s mostly snacks or desserts (see here and here, for example). But don’t be fooled; I love cooking! An afternoon spent in the kitchen preparing a hearty meal is an afternoon well spent, if you ask me. I figure that food forms such a huge part of everyone’s lives, you may as well throw yourself into it and enjoy it, right? With this in mind, I thought I’d…

If you follow my Instagram, you’ll have seen that I recently got a brand-spanking new camera, woohoo! I’m literally obsessed with it. I’ve been taking photos of everything!

DIY Hanging Fabric Wall Art

Here in the UK, the spring is just around the corner! I love winter, but I’m definitely ready for this dreary grey weather to end. Pretty soon, the rain will stop and the clouds will clear, the sky will get brighter and the days warmer – well, that’s the theory anyway! The sun will also be rising earlier, which always makes getting out of bed that little bit easier! Roll on spring! 🙂 Since the spring season is all about…

Simple DIY Christmas Jumper

One of the unavoidable clues that the festive season us upon us is the mass of Christmas jumpers popping up everywhere! The high street, the supermarket, on television, photos on Facebook, sometimes even at work… everywhere! To celebrate this growing trend, I had a go at crafting my own DIY Christmas jumper.
