Hi, I'm Amanda and I love everything to do with art and design, whether it involves woven threads, watercolour pencils, musical notes, or pastry recipes (I devise my own). I'm also keen on forms of Do-It-Yourself, but not so much in the usual sense of hammers & nails: I like to make my own hand cream, and my own dog toys, treats, and games. I like to experiment in decorating the home, with the aim of making my world a lovelier, more comfortable place. This website is almost a diary of what inspires me, and perhaps some of my projects will inspire you, too. I hope you find something you like, and please do come again.

One of my own tartan designs, woven in wool (top) and cotton (the cushion). My inspiration looks on!
