a nice surprise

One of the great things about having a blog is you get a peak into what people like to look at and read about. It’s fun because sometimes there are some real surprises. You may remember my DIY geometric necklaces I posted back in August. I have to say this post continues to surprise me!…

spring clean

Well once again, 6 months on I’m re-designing The Lovely Drawer again. It’s turning out to be a bi-annual occasion, although not intentionally. This time I can conveniently blame it on the season and call it a ‘Spring clean’. The good and bad thing about being a designer is your style is constantly evolving as…

stationery geek

Stop and take a moment to admire all this lovely stationery from Le Petite Papeterie Francais. I wouldn’t know what to buy first! The bold colours paired with kraft and recycled paper make them super yummy. If only I had more of a need for mountains of stationery! Check out the online shop here.

hello shepherd’s bush

If you’ve read my blog for a little while then you might well remember this post, written just before moving to London to set out on a bit of an adventure. God very obviously guided Nick and I to Shepherd’s Bush to be a part of Trinity West Church. Reuben and Louisa Hunter, started the church from…

spring colour inspiration

watch / DIY mouse mat / regret nothing print / kitchen / London photograph / iphone case / bonjour amour print / single bead necklace It’s mildly amusing that I’m posting this on such a dull and dreary day. It seems a very long way from spring, not helped by the blizzards earlier this week! Nevertheless this fresh colour combination might put a ‘spring’ in your step…

you, me, geometry

Here’s a simple DIY idea for yourself or even better, a gift. When I think fridge magnets, I usually think ‘tacky’ but these should add some colour and life to your fridge or notice board without the tat. All you need is… For the gold areas I used my gold metallic paint as a base…
