One of the purposes of my blog is not just to share craft and DIY tutorials to (hopefully) inspire people to make their own creations, but also to review craft fairs & events so that people who like handmade know which are the ones worth going to and people who sell handmade have more information… Read more »

Urban Makers East Pop-up at Fount London

How often is too often? That’s a question that often stumps bloggers. Personally I find that posting more = more views but I’ve also heard some other bloggers say they don’t like visiting blogs which post every day as it’s a signal to them that the blogger isn’t spending enough quality time on each post….

Makers & Friends, a curated platform for UK designer-makers

Rather shamefaced as I write my first blog post in almost 6 months! In my defence, I was rather busy with Makers & Friends, my pop-up bringing independent UK makers & designers to the High Street which was at 126 Upper Street March- April 2016.

London for craftaholics

Because I can’t get out of 90% of tube stations in London, commuting is an even longer and more painful journey than normal. A lot of my time goes into thinking about tube stations and how I can get to Y from a District/ Circle/ Overground tube station. Yay me. Which is why I’ve decided to… Read more »
