One of my biggest dreams, ever since I was about 16, was to go to Japan.

I was always obsessed with Japanese food, the language and pop culture. So I tried for absolutely ages to save up enough money to go. And in September my dream was finally realised! I flew out a da...

For those of you who don't know, I occasionally do the odd bit of web design work, which sometimes includes little bits of logo design or packaging design too. I decided to do this post as I had a client who wanted a website for her business. When contacted she sent so...

It's been a couple of years since I've been to Cambridge, but I was convinced to go when I heard the Fitzwilliam Museaum was hosting an exhibition called"Treasured Possessions" even more alluring was an exhibition of Turner paintings, and a collection of jewel encruste...

May 26th kind of felt a little bit like Doomsday for me. It was my first ever London market and I knew that the competition would be fierce. As well as travelling at strange times I was also going to get little sleep, a combination of staying at a house that was hosti...

1) Make sure you have enough stock, money and tools.


This was a mistake I suffered from when doing craft fairs early on. I'd barely have enough stock to cover the table, so when something sold there would be a great big gap. I also only used to bring maybe a £10 floa...

Admittedly I've taken a little bit of time off this week due to having craft fairs back to back, and a London trip to come on April 26th to Crafty Fox Market in Brixton.

I've spent most of the week enjoying the sunshine, getting inspired by the river, jotting down notes...
