DIY Magnetic memo board

Hello! I hope your week is going well so far and that you’ve been able to get out into the sunshine. I’ve been busy marking assignments these past few days and so have been chained to my desk. At times like this, it’s so important to have an inspiring space to work in to stay […]

Friday links

Time for three more links to things that I’ve used/liked/admired from around the globe this week. http://www.ted.com/talks/amy_cuddy_your_body_language_shapes_who_you_are.html I used this talk in my PSHE lecture with my students this week. Well worth a watch. A simple weekend sewing project via the My Hands Made It blog. 37 ‘gifts in a jar’ ideas from my pinterest […]

New Series: Friday links

Time for a new series. After seeing lots of my favourite bloggers sharing what inspires them, I’ve decided to do my series sharing the same thing. Not what inspires them, what inspires me of course. Maybe ‘inspires’ is too strong a word, perhaps ‘interesting links’ or ‘go check this out’ is more appropriate? Anyhow, too […]

Life lately,

Recently I’ve been… playing around with the new features on my A Beautiful Mess photo app. disturbing my grumpy, sleepy cat as she dozed in the sun in one of my wooden crates (they are part of an ikea hack that I’m planning to share soon). feeling inspired by the recent Papermash crafternoon that I attended in […]

I’m on a mission this weekend to get things organised and tidy in our home office (or should I say ‘general dumping ground’)! We are so fortunate to have a small box room that we can use as a home office but I rarely use it for that purpose as it’s so full of unorganised […]

Guest bedroom musings…

After waiting for ages to have our front door replaced, we finally had enough sunshine to be able to have a new one fitted. In true Brit style it’s raining again now so I’m glad we acted when we did! The next thing I would like to turn my attention to is our guest bedroom. […]

Celebrate 91 magazine

The Spring/Summer issue of 91 Magazine is out and it’s certainly worth a read if you haven’t already spent some time flicking through the pages. 91 Magazine was recently awarded the Women in Publishing New Venture award and it’s great to be able to write about the magazine and support it as it continues to […]

A few of my favourite things

I haven’t done ‘a few of my favourite things’ post for a while and so wanted to stop by for 5 minutes and share what I’m finding inspiring on the web this week. It’s been quiet on Celebrate Creation so far as I’m busy writing assignments for my Masters degree which is due in next week so […]

Learning from…the U.S

When I was in the US over the summer, it gave me a fun idea for a new series of posts for Celebrate Creation. There’s often a lot to learn from other cultures in regards to seasonal decorations and the way different people celebrate yearly events. One thing that has always struck me about the […]

Pinterest craft finds…

I know I’m not the first person to rave about Pinterest but if you aren’t on it yet then I recommend that you head on over and give it a try. It’s now my first ‘go to’ source for inspiration for everything from home decor, to clothing, to new make ideas. Here’s 3 pins from […]
