Barefoot Behind the Scenes :: Branding

My editorial calendar tells me today I should be talking to you about Project Life and where I’m up to. Which would be all well and good if I actually had something to show you that was different from last month’s update. I am hoping to make the most of the long weekend and get three months (*blush*) worth of […]

Birthday season :: part two

oh boy, what a week it has been! This is by far the biggest week of our year, the 7 days between Bear’s birthday and Boy2’s, which also generally falls in the last week or two of term, and the craziness that that brings. On top of the 30 cupcakes I made for him to take to school, I also […]

Beetle turns one!!!

How on earth did that happen? It seems a mere moment ago I sat cradling a minutes old newborn, blinking his big blue eyes at me and trying to work out exactly how he got here when he was so nice and cozy, and yet suddenly, a year has passed, and those big blue eyes are full of mischief and […]


Oh man. This was super fun. It was Car’s birthday last month, and I knew early on I wanted to make a hashtag typography collage (inspired by these tshirts by Elise Blaha). We use A LOT of hashtags in our conversations, so prepping for this project involved going back through months of old chats – and man we can “talk”!! […]

Another challenge!

To be honest, I’m not sure who to blame for this one. I think it was Bec, in conjunction with Car (c’mon, like THAT surprises anyone). Apparently a few of us thought we wanted a new bag, and so the EQ Bag Challenge/Sewalong was born. No deadlines or rules – just make a bag and encourage each other along. And […]

beauty & the beast.

I think it’s one of those things, that we think will never happen to us. Even after losing both my grandfathers to the dreaded c-word, I still felt like that, it was crappy and horrible, but it was something that happened to older people. Nothing I need to think about too much, apart from our monthly donations to the Cancer […]

Dream Cake.

It’s been something playing in the back of my mind for a while, to have a go at designing my own fabric. And recently I had a very clear picture in my head of a project to make, and I knew exactly the fabric I wanted. But of course I couldn’t find it, so I put pen to paper, mouse […]

Exam wallet

My dear sister is preparing to sit her first uni exam, and I wanted to give her a little something to say “good luck”. When she mentioned she was allowed to take a limited number of notes in with her, inspiration struck, and after a busy day in the studio on Friday, I came up with the “exam wallet”. A4 […]

As autumn draws to a close

and the trees turn delightful shades of vivid yellow, burnt orange & deep crimson, I wanted to take a moment to capture the colours that have appeared quite late in the season, thanks to quite mild days thus far. But as winter sneaks up, as crisp mornings warn of the bleaker season bearing down on us, the trees have submitted […]
