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 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.

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

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…

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…

Oor Wullie Bucket Trail – Biscuit Break Wullie

Oor Wullie Bucket Trail – Biscuit Break Wullie

Dundee will always have a special place in my heart.  One of the cool things that I noticed about Dundee when I moved there to study at DJCAD way back in 2003, was the public art that inhabits the city centre. It’s primarily bronze, with little nods to Dundee’s cultural history & achievements with a wee bit of fun on…
