Dream holiday / total nightmare

After hours (and hours) of deliberation, contemplating locations, flight combinations and resorts. Calculating every last penny to get the very best deal for our hard-earned cash. Planning a holiday can be stressful business, there are seemingly infinite choices to consider and now we have a child’s wants and needs thrown into the pot, along with […]

LyvedenALIVE!

  Earlier in the year we joined The National Trust. The decision was made after a family half term trip to Cornwall, where virtually everywhere we visited (even some of the car parks) would have been free had we been National Trust members. I think in the end it was a particularly special jacket potato […]

Perfect day for a Wedding

This wedding invitation has been sitting on my dressing table for what feels like months! It was a dark cold Spring day when it dropped through the letter box and the thought of a beautifully sunny day of celebration was just this thing to lift our spirit’s back in those wintery days of March. But […]

May 2016 Playlist

Before May merrily passes by into June (how fast is this year going?) Here’s my May 2016 playlist. I’ll be listening to this over the bank holiday weekend, hopefully in the garden with a bbq sizzling and a glass of something fizzy, but as it’s a British bank holiday it’s bound to rain in which […]

Losing my voice (and getting it back).

I have been so bad at keeping my blog up to date, my work life balance has been out of whack for months and I didn’t really know where to start again and almost feel like I might have lost my voice (my blogging voice that is, not my actual voice). It all start when […]

Playlist October 2015

Happy weekend folk!!! Here’s my awesome playlist for your October listening pleasure. I was in a slightly better place when compiling this months tracks and I don’t know if you’ll notice but it seems a little more upbeat! We’re in London on Saturday and I will definitely be listening to this playlist while I’m on […]

New Designs – Cupcake toppers

Wow! How cold is it today?! It’s almost starting to feel wintry and you know what that means? Yes that’s right the C word!!! I wasn’t going to mention anything until at least November but I was so delighted to find our Christmas jumper baubles on the landing screen of etsy’s Christmas entertaining & decor […]

September in Photo’s: Instagram Round up

September was another great month! I got another year older (booo) but it wasn’t all bad. I visited some great places (old and new). The little one went back to school (and is loving her new teacher – phew), so I got the chance to work on some new products and not forgetting I cracked […]

Pink Peg Board

I thought it was about time I shared with you an insight into the world of One Tidy Studio and its epicentre my Gin Pink Peg Board! I had an idea for a peg board for a while, somewhere I could keep all of those little tools and tapes handy without having to rummage through […]

June in Pictures

Well it is official, I have no life. 11pm on a Saturday night and I am updating my blog. In fairness I’ve had a pretty rubbish couple of weeks which resulted in some (not so) minor surgery yesterday and Eva is poorly with tonsillitis again. So while everyone else trots off to a beer garden […]
