Summer Reading Challenge 2015

I’m currently reading Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton. I’m part of an online Book Club and had read rave reviews about the author’s fourth novel. One review simply said ‘I envy anyone who hasn’t read it yet as I would love to be able to unread it so I could start again without knowing […]

Summer Glamping Wish List

I’m the kind of person who needs a project. Whether it’s demolishing walls or learning a new craft, I like to feel I have something on the boil, challenging me, making me think. Otherwise I get a bit restless, bored, then melancholic and then just downright fed up. Throughout the Summer work goes a little […]

Playlist July 2015

Last month I wrote about how I get myself organised for busy times, with a blog post called ‘Maintaining the Calm‘. At the bottom of the post I added the playlist I was listening to. I make a new playlist on Spotify every month and a few of you got in touch to say you […]

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 […]

Heatwave Fashion!

Here in the UK, you may be aware we are experiencing a HEATWAVE!!! So today, on the hottest day of the year (if you believe the rumours, the hottest day the UK has seen ever) I am busily working from home as usual, but today I feel especially fortunate as I have flung the studio […]

Maintaining the calm

So far June has flashed by in a blur. I knew it was going to be busy with work trips to London at the weekend and Father’s Day madness thrown in. I like to plan a few things for these busy times so I can stay on top of the workload and maintain a certain […]

Blogtacular 2015

Yesterday I attended Blogtactular at The Royal Institute of Great Britain! My blog is only six months old so forking out to go to a blogging conference so early in my blogging career might seem like madness, but I’m not one to be swayed by conformity. ‘Blogtacular is a place for bloggers whose hearts beat […]

The Great Orla Kiely Coffee Jar Hunt!

Two of my favourite worlds have collided! Orla Kiely has been working with Douwe Egbert to create an exclusive range of patterns for their coffee jars. If like me you are a bit of a sucker for anything that has a retro inspired theme then you’ll love these jars of joy. The real genius is […]
