One + Four = Life – Tulips, Blue House, Toys & Doorway

Hi there! Here’s a cute thing I am hoping to join in with more often. The lovely Pip Lincolne, over at Meet Me at Mikes, started this idea a few weeks back. Once a week, post four photos - every week, sharing them on Sunday. Once a week.  Four photos.  To document your life.  One + Four… Continue reading One + Four = Life – Tulips, Blue House, Toys & Doorway

Look Back : April 2015

Having turned over the calendar yesterday, I realised another month has gone. Another month closer to those long, long Summer days, when the sun rises around 5am and doesn't set before 11pm. Pretty crazy how the days turn into weeks and then with a snap of your fingers, another month has passed, isn't it? April saw… Continue reading Look Back : April 2015

Mini break : Oxford

I had never been to Oxford before - and the above photo that I took, not long after we arrived is pretty much what I expected to see in Oxford. From the little I knew - it is a University town. It is old and historic and the two things I really wanted to do… Continue reading Mini break : Oxford

Instagram : #FMSPHOTOADAY

As you all know, it's been a bumper week in Instagram-land. I simply love to capture mini-moments as they happen throughout my day and share them with you. They could be in the studio, walking home, a new creation, a yummy lunch or snapshot of life in Hamburg. It's a moment by moment, instant photo… Continue reading Instagram : #FMSPHOTOADAY

Charity : Heart Pillow Project 2015

This is going to be a post - not just about a wonderful group of crafty ladies right here in Hamburg or about this project we were lucky enough to be apart of - but of gratitude. It is on days like this - when the universe aligns - that I am reminded of how… Continue reading Charity : Heart Pillow Project 2015

Snapshot : My ride home

I am so often stuck by the beauty around me here in Hamburg and it usually happens on a sunny afternoon, as I leisurely ride my bike the very short distance home. Having my studio so close to home, often means I take the 'long way' on days like today - the ride home is too… Continue reading Snapshot : My ride home

Studio Life : Sock Haul & New Monkies

Some days in the studio just work. Flow, you come home exhausted but feel like you've really achieved something. Finished something; found greater understanding of something; worked something out. Found a short cut - or a long cut. But you managed to arrive at that place you set out to find. Do you know what I mean? Feels… Continue reading Studio Life : Sock Haul & New Monkies

Snapshot : Spring is here!

Isn't Hamburg heavenly in the Spring time! I couldn't let these photos sit on my computer one more day, without sharing the beauty that is just meters from my front door right now. This was Wednesday last week - and it was the first day this entire year I have been able to walk and… Continue reading Snapshot : Spring is here!

Taking Stock : April 2015

Can you believe it's already the middle of April? Some days and week go so quickly don't they? As it's been a couple of months, I though an April Taking Stock might be a good jumping off point this month, with some studio happenings, past and future travel plans, longer days - and even some… Continue reading Taking Stock : April 2015

Instagram: A picture is worth a thousand words

Have you joined the masses on Instagram yet? At least in my crafty handmade little world - it seems to be more popular than posting on Facebook, twitter and Flickr combined. The thing I love about Facebook posts from friends and other 'pages' I follow are their photos - so it makes sense that I… Continue reading Instagram: A picture is worth a thousand words
