Capturing Memories with Mixbook

If you’re anything like me- flipping through a tattered shoe box of old photographs is one of life’s simple pleasures. Nowadays- almost everyone carries a super-high quality camera around with them in their pocket (in the form of a smartphone) with most of our personal photography being shared amongst friends on social media. And don’t get me wrong- I’m a big…

How to Make Burger Shortbread Cookies

How to Make Burger Shortbread Cookies

There’s seems to be a special day for mostly everything now (yesterday it was #worldplantmilkday) and tomorrow we’ll be celebrating National Burger Day in our own fun way: DIY Burger Shortbread Cookies! I’ve adapted my trusty Stork Shortbread recipe to make these- they take about 1.5 hours to prep, bake and put together so they’re a fairly quick and super fun…

My Creative Business Tech Kit List

My Creative Business Tech Kit List

One thing that I get asked over and over is what equipment I use for my work. I don’t have a tonne of tech (I suppose I’m pretty old school in a lot of ways!) but I do have a squad of firm favourites that I use on a daily basis- so I wanted to share these with you. I’ll pop…

Favourite Things Workshop – West Elm London

Favourite Things Workshop – West Elm London

It’s been over a month since we hosted our very first Favourite Things jewellery workshop in London- and while i’ve tried to make time for blogging (alongside doing all of the things) life has been busy and sometimes that’s just the way it goes. Better late than never, eh? Rachel McNeil came along to London with us for Blogtacular and…

Home Tour 2016

I haven’t always had a lot of space to live in. I left home when I was 17 to attend Art School in Dundee and in that time, I inhabited no less than 9 apartments. They were all shared with flatmates (then eventually Michael, when we moved in together) and varied from windowless broom cupboards to a big old draughty farmhouse room where…

Why We Need Creative Adventures

The first entries for “Creative Adventures”, on Google are for a bunch of summer holiday camps and art classes…for kids.  There’s lantern making, weaving, painting and exploring. That (still) sounds pretty fun to me- but it really struck me that the importance of learning through play and adventure is emphasised much more when you’re little. Booking a ticket to the Alt Summit conference…

I’m on the Blogtacular Podcast!

I’m on the Blogtacular Podcast!

I listen to Podcasts almost every day of the week. I subscribe to lots, across a really broad range of topics from creativity to business, storytelling and inspiration. I’ve attended Blogtacular in London since its launch in 2014- and every year it proves to be a super inspiring, whirlwind of weekend.  Kat announced that they’d be starting a podcast to…

Biscuit Crafts – Oreo Christmas Pudding DIY

Biscuit Crafts – Oreo Christmas Pudding DIY

Remember a few years ago, I whipped up a batch of Tunnocks Teacake Christmas puds as an homage to one of our favourite cushion designs? They were such a hit (I think they’re actually my post pinned image on Pinterest, EVER) I’ve decided to try a little variation for 2016. What do you think of my little Oreo cookie Christmas Puddings?…

Christmas Decor at Biscuit HQ

Christmas Decor at Biscuit HQ

It’s that time of year again. There’s a chill in the air and the fancy boxes of assorted chocolate biscuits are taking up almost a whole aisle in the supermarket. If I’m being totally honest, I ate half a chocolate orange for my lunch today, and I’ve been contemplating mulling all of our hot drinks- which means that the festive season is…

Etsy Made Local Glasgow 2016

Internet shopping is pretty great, right? You can do it in your pyjamas, whilst eating a mince pie and you don’t even need to leave your couch. BUT…if you ask me, there’s nothing quite like the festive buzz of a real-live Christmas market, and that’s why we can’t wait for Etsy Made Local in Glasgow this December 3rd! We’ll be…

Biscuit Porridge Bowls for a camping adventure!

Biscuit Porridge Bowls for a camping adventure!

Scotland is one of the only places where wild camping (that’s pitching your tent outwith an organised campsite) is allowed. We took a trip to the east coast with some friends earlier on in the year, and got bitten hard by the camping bug (legend has it that there’s no midgies on the east…so there was no danger of any…
