Full disclosure: I’m in a bit of a wobbly patch. No idea why.
We ladies are such a wonderfully crazy cocktail of hormones, it’s almost not worth trying to work out what’s going on sometimes, right?
Anyway. I just wanted to share that really… not in order to garner (ooh, big words today) support or anything like that, just to be real. Because you can go to bloglovin‘ and see all those countless blogs full of such seeming happiness and creativity, that you can just kind of exhale and wonder what’s wrong with you, you know?

Ugh, if I could just get over this planner crush thing.
I did just spot one on eBay that is helping me move on slightly from the My Prima Planner-crush, because it was even nicer. Just don’t put ‘Kikki K Pause’ into your search box, okay? You’re happier not knowing, trust me. Continue reading
I did a post like this a while back, but I’ve had better thoughts on the subject since then – ha, so modest!
It’s September: season of new starts, newly sharpened pencils and new Design Teams. So here we go, my sweet young friends: my top ‘welcome to the team’ tips… Continue reading
I wasn’t going to flag up each time I appear on a team’s blog here on my personal blog, but with this one I just had to: it’s one of my favourite pages in a long time. Do go see.😉
The thing is, even if this scrap thing doesn’t pay as such, we kind of make it a job for ourselves, don’t we? Keeping up to date on all the latest product releases, design team announcements and project news; making sure we’ve watched all the latest youtube processes and left hearts in the right places on instagram; replying to comments and answering messages, not to mention the actual work of adding content to our own channels and blogs where we can.

Let’s talk scrap crushes (and no, for once I’m not talking about Wilna).
I’m thinking about stuff: that thing or range that you just can’t stop thinking about. That scrappy item you think about and google every time you have a spare moment.
That product that you just know would make your life so much better, would make you so much happier… would – probably – be the last thing you’d ever purchase, so perfect is it. Continue reading
Getting on top of your ‘to do’ list – does anyone ever manage it? I’m not sure I do. If I make the beds and do the washing up, there’s almost immediately another meal to prepare and a room being played in (and for that, read ‘destroyed’).
So how do we cope with feeling like we never quite get life under control? Having struggled with this one for a while, I have a few tips… Continue reading
Hey gang! I’ve a blog post up on the Citrus Twist Kits blog today that I thought I’d mention here – my tips for using colour a little more bravely. Meet you over at Citrus Twist HQ!
Dear younger me,
I’m writing this to you from the top of the hill. Because you feel like you’re climbing one, don’t you? That you’ll never reach a place of calm and peace. Here’s the good news: you do.
So I just wanted to drop in and tap you a note and maybe give you a few pointers. Continue reading
I blame Prima. Their latest planner line is just swoon-some. I suddenly desperately needed one… only I’m not doing all that shopping for things I don’t need stuff anymore (did I mention that this resolution sucks at times?)
Anyway. I was going to get that cute black and white vibe happening near my planner if it killed me. So after hours spent surfing Etsy for a ready-made one (why that doesn’t count as shopping, I’m not sure), I made my own: here’s what I did… Continue reading
