There’s so much about the sea that I find amazing and inspiring and uplifting. I live on a cliff and it’s hard to ignore the force of the water that ebbs and flows below. Sometimes it’s so loud that we feel like we live right next to a motorway.
I don’t normally go for mainstream pop but there’s something about this song that struck a chord – no pun intended. I heard in on the radio when I was driving home one sunny morning with Milo in the back and had no idea who was singing it. I just really liked it instantly. Very […]
My bench is a bit of a mess today – I’ve been busy photographing my new notepads and button cards, so not much has been happening on the bench this week apart from me making a little bit of a mess…

This song is a blast from the past for me. I used to work for a design firm in Edinburgh and do the whole 9-5 and get paid a pittance as I was a junior. I hated it but I also loved it. What got me through each day? The people I worked with and […]
I recently discovered this great tutorial by Amanda Wood on how to make lovely stickers from recycled paper. The best thing about it is that the tutorial uses one of my favourite things – envelopes with funky security patterns. How could I resist!
