To brighten up your Monday morning, after a very grey weekend, I have some new free iPhone wallpapers for you. I found a new pattern to experiment with and let’s just say, I got a little carried away with all the different colours you could have, so I thought I’d keep the same pattern and have four different options for you to download. I hope you like them, and if there’s a colour option you’d like me to try next tome just let me know in the comments below!
Hello folks, after a very busy week I think I need to take notice of the advice in this great poster, designed by Anne Olde Kalter at La Farme. I don’t know about you but I find it tricky to step away from my computer, especially as I use it for both work and play (blogging of course!) so I can be on it for a good 12 hours a day – eeek! Ok, maybe this weekend I’ll use it less and go outside. Wish me luck!
Happy weekend x
In collaboration with Wren Kitchens. All thoughts and designs are my own and no money was exchanged for this post.
I’ve started my Christmas posts early (sorry!) as I’ve got lot’s of things I’d like to share with you, and mainly because I couldn’t wait, so first up is my Starry Garland, which you can download for free and make yourself at home, ready in time for Christmas.
I was asked by Wren Kitchens to create something crafty for Christmas to compliment their new Linda Barker collection. As the range features geometric influences I thought this would be a perfect element to incorporate in my design, and as I love geometrics I couldn’t resist. I thought a garland would be great to design as you can hang it anywhere in your house, even in a kitchen!
My stars are the geometric element within the garland, and I think they compliment the glittery lettering wonderfully. I’ve attached my stars and letters to ribbon with just a small amount of tape, which gives it a clean finish, but you could thread the ribbon or twine through each element for a more craftier look.
There are two great colour trends around at the moment and I wanted to use these within my designs, giving the Christmas theme a bit of a twist; Silver with Mint and Gold with Rose. Both colours are offered within the download so you can mix the designs up as much as you want.
The download includes both colour ways for you use. You don’t even have to stick to my colours, use the elements as a template/stencil to create your own personal design that reflects your home.

It’s been a while since I put together a few of my favourite things to share with you. Like my post last time, I found most of these products whilst researching for other blog posts, so I’ve added them to my shopping wish list. (Well it is Christmas soon so why not!) It’s pure co-incindence that all of these lovely things are gold, blue and green, a pretty colour combination that I hadn’t thought about mixing before.

This illustration couldn’t be more perfect right now. Since my trip to London a couple of weeks ago all I’ve wanted to eat is cheeseburgers and french fries. I don’t normally crave this food, but I did have some great cheeseburgers that week and I feel like I need to reminisce with just one more. For old time’s sake of course!

September was a bit of a non starter for my daily photo’s (hence no post!), but I didn’t let that put me off, I threw myself into October and got back on track. Luckily a few planned trips helped and I felt very inspired to take more photos and even challenge myself to take subjects I wouldn’t normally shoot – cafe’s and interior details for example. I didn’t need to worry, those photo’s became my most liked on Instagram! I think there’s a moral to this story – don’t be frightened try something new!
