Who doesn’t love stumbling upon mushrooms on a woodland walk? In this six-page craft feature, for the September issue of LandLove magazine, I use the fabulous fungi as inspiration for colour crafts.
I thought I’d share some of my recent craft features from my ongoing series in Dog’s Monthly Magazine. I hope any pet parents out there feel inspired to get crafty!
I’m currently working on a series of tutorials for Reloved Magazine – The Creative Guide To Upcycling Your Home. The first of these pieces, a tutorial on transforming lacklustre plant pots into little works of art with mosaic, has published in Issue 45.
Regular followers of my blog will know that making makes me happy, so it’s lovely to be working with Reloved. Hopefully I’ll manage to inspire others to get their craft on!
My latest craft tutorial for Dog’s Monthly magazine sees me turn a plain chopping board into a kitsch lead holder. If you’re a dog owner why not make one? Guaranteed to get tails wagging!

Sometimes you just need to change it up though, right? I’d heard the Gower’s beaches were the best in Wales and I found a company with luxury Shepherds Huts overlooking Rhossili beach, so off I went… You can read about my glamping adventure on the Gower in this month’s One Magazine, or online here.
Offices don’t make you fat. The walls don’t secrete lipids, which you unknowingly absorb through your pores. Unless you work in sweatshop, you aren’t forbidden from moving around. It’s just difficult, with little need for movement in order to fulfil your role and the constant supply of indulgent treats. The answer?
