moody bathroom update

    It wasn’t that long ago that I tackled this bathroom but here I am coming back for round 2!

diy heart print bag

Tote bags are undoubtably very useful but I don’t think there’s any excuse for them not to look nice whilst doing their job. Here’s a simple idea to give a plain canvas tote some life. Personally I think everything you need can be bought most reasonably from Ebay. All you need is…. a plain canvas…

so that was april….

From top right… * A case of misplaced eagerness perhaps? The day before it had been snowing for most of the day!* My friend introduced me to Gail’s Bakery last month and I felt it very necessary to drag Nick along to experience the yum factor too.* So you may have noticed I love old…

Summer Stew

Today is a fun day as it’s my very first guest post over on my lovely friend, Lauren’s blog. She has a really sweet blog full of all sorts of interesting reads, giveaways and fun photos of their travels so I’d definitely check it out if I were you. When I think stew, it conjures…

cut & stick

Oooo I do love these cards by by Fair Morning Blue. They have an Aztec feel about them but look as if they were created in some kind of exciting cutting and pasting craft session. I’m such a colour geek and these colour combinations really excite me! Check out the Etsy shop here for more lovely cards…

so glad you made it

After what felt like an abnormally long winter, Spring finally showed up this week! I’ve heard countless people say ‘I’m very ready for winter to end this year’ and I in fact am one of those people. I love Spring. Perhaps its mostly because it brings the promise of Summer with it but I just…

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.

so that was march…

happy easter

It’s Easter! This may well disappoint but this isn’t a post filled with eggs, bunnies, chocolate, fluffy chicks or a mixture of the above. This is a canvas that I designed that hangs on our wall all year round to remind us that Jesus has risen! We remember this at Easter but really we can…
