Jamie Oliver Mag- Bake Your Own Biscuits

If you're a fan of home-baking, cooking or (like me) eating delicious food then I strongly suggest purchasing the current Jamie (Oliver) magazine! I was so excited to hear that the issue was going to feature lots of DIY biscuit recipes- and also that they would be featuring some of my biscuit cushions, in tribute!

I have to admit- while I enjoy watching Jamie's 30 Minute Meals (30 minutes is my approximate time ration for dinner-time at the moment!) I'd never before bought a copy of the magazine...and I am so impressed! The current issue (Mar/Apr) is full of loads delicious and achievable Greek inspired recipes- which my Cypriot granny would approve of as well as the aforementioned DIY biscuits. There's recipes for baking your own Custard Creams- Bourbons and even Jaffa Cakes (genius!)- which I will definitely be putting to the test at some point soon. You can even find out how to make your own Jammy Dodger biscuits here (and take a look at my Jammy cushions here!)

Jamie Magazine are currently giving away 2 of my cushions- so buy a copy of the magazine or head over to the website to enter the competition today!

We Have a Winner!

Thanks to everybody who entered my blog competition over the last few weeks. There was an amazing response- but there can only be one winner...

So, congratulations: Georgia Coote!

It's a beautiful sunny day here in Dundee- and I've just had my favourite Sunday breakfast: pancakes, bacon & syrup. I hope everyone's having a lovely weekend!

Greetings and Salutations!

I had a little batch of these cards printed a while ago and thought that with Mother's day just around the corner it would be the perfect opportunity to add them to my online shop.

A colour variation of a digital print which I currently sell- this card is professionally printed onto a nice heavy 350gsm satin finish card. It's blank inside- so could be perfect if you have a cake-loving Mum this coming mothering Sunday (18th of March, folks!)

Cards are priced at £2.00 and are available to order now from my online shop!

21st Century Design Lecture at DJCAD

A little while ago the lovely Kate Pickering got in touch with me to ask me to be part of the 21st Designer lecture program at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. Being on the other side of the lecture theatre during my studies at DJCAD from 2003 - 2008 I was really excited to go back and give it a go!

I spoke to 2nd year Design students about my journey since leaving art school, my business and the joys of twitter!

I got some lovely tweets from students attending my talk as well as a few blog posts later on in the day that I've linked to below. Thanks so much to Kate Pickering and Jonathan Baldwin for having me along- and also for inviting me to stay to talk to 4th year textiles students in the afternoon with Angharad McLaren.

Thanks to all of the students who blogged about my talk (If I've missed anyone, drop me a line with your link) Thanks also to Kate for taking the photo above!

There's still a week left to enter my competition- so make sure you get your comments in before the 9th of March for your chance to win!
