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 […]

Much change!

I haven’t blogged for such a long time and so much has changed. My business Wood Paper Scissors I share with my husband is going really well, so well in fact that we have moved the business and now have a dedicated studio workshop. Which has been fantastic and we have a lovely studio assistant […]

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 […]

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 […]

Meat Free Monday, Pesto Macaroni Cheese Recipe

It’s Monday again and as usual I have been menu planning for the week ahead. Last week I decided we needed to change things up a bit, so for a number of reasons I’ve decided to re-visit my Vegetarian days with meat-free Mondays. “Launched by Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney in 2009, Meat Free Monday […]

Follow You Home by Mark Edwards: Book Review

Follow You Home by Mark Edwards, the author of #1 bestsellers The Magpies and Because She Loves Me takes the genre psychological thriller to a whole new level of tension! “It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime, a final adventure before settling down. But after a perfect start, an encounter with a […]

Playlist September 2015

It’s been a weird few weeks with many highs and lows. I went on my first ‘alone’ major trip in my new car last week to South Wales. The round trip was a few hundred miles, so I found myself in the alien situation of having several hours to myself with no one to talk […]

New Product Alert! Personalised Keep Sake Boxes

Today is the first day of term for my little one, so it feels like the first ‘proper’ day in the studio for weeks. This isn’t true¬† course, we’ve worked late in to the night many times over the holidays so there is plenty precious time together during the day ‘making memories’. We’ve had the […]
