Top posts of 2014!

As we head towards the end of 2014, I've been taking a look back at this years posts, and thought I'd share some of the most popular ones, incase you missed them first time round.
As always, the etsy interviews have been really popular and you always love a good colour crush, yum!

Colour crush...

There are so many Christmassy posts I want to squeeze in before the big day, and this colour crush post's just one of them. 
We had some kiddy craftiness yesterday, and wrapping ideas and there'll be a few more to come next week too before I sign off to enjoy a bit of a break over the festive period.

I absolutely adore these soft, muted, greyed off tones, so gorgeous!
And I had to get a bit of gold glitter in there too, obsessing over anything glittery at the moment.

Christmas wrapping...

Like everyone else, I've been grabbing minutes here and there, on evenings and weekends to get through the pile of gifts to wrap sitting in the corner of the living room.
I must admit, this year, I've really enjoyed scouring pinterest for new and fun ideas; homemade tags, doodled wrap, little paper crafted additions, pom poms, glitter letters, stamps, etc...

I was using the very beautiful wrap designed by Becca for our Paper & Cloth collection recently, so thought I'd share a few pics...
This wrap is the metallic gold all over print version but it's also available in blues too and a lovely scenic sheet.
I was having way too much fun with glitter and glue!
Let's hope the recipient likes it.

If your quick, you can get Becs Metallic Enchanted wrap here...

Free Christmas printables...

I thought I'd share a few Christmas freebies with you today.
There's something really lovely about that homemade, handcrafted feel to your pressies, and I must admit, I do like to have little personal touches to gifts I'm giving, but if you don't have the time or inclination to make your own, 
(lets face it, when its creeping ever so closer to the 25th, who does?) 
there are some fab freebies around and about in blog land. 
Just save, print and go!

Here are my faves...

Take Four...

As we'll all be busying away wrap wrap wrapping, 
here are four beautiful and understated gift wrap ideas...
I love the kraft paper with white and silver and bits of black, and the gorgeous little geo prints and stripes. 
(I'm currently continuing the obsession I acquired last year with bakers twine)
And that calligraphy tag, yum!

There are soooo many yummy things I've spotted on my internet travels and far too nice not to share.

Colour crush...

Oooh, I have got one totally yummy colour crush post for you today, 
with a nice Christmassy theme.
Nothing against the traditional reds and greens (our house is full of it)
but lets go for blues and greens with a hint of peach instead, gorgeous!

Instagram snaps...November 2014

Well, November came and went in the blink of an eye.
Here's a little Instagram roundup...

There were fun and games at The Shard in London for a very lovely ladies hen do, 
and the discovery of a 
'is it a strawberry, is it a raspberry... no its a strasberry' 
at Borough Market, which went down very well with a few glasses of prosecco.

Paper & Cloth made their first little debut with own products at the Designer Christmas market held at the V&A Museum of Childhood, and the Christmas wrap went on sale on

I was part of a very lovely selection of people selected for 'Pinners of the Week' by Grazia, yay!

Found a few P&C designs on Zutanos website, looking cute!

Lots of indulging in the new Christmas issue of Jamie magazine, yum.

And then there was Christmas tree decorating, 
and the fluffy one requesting he wore his santa suit for the festivities, 
which also involved Quality Street munching, 
and the watching of many a Christmas movie...
my favourite being good old Miracle on 34th Street.

Hope you all had a good month!
