Red Velvet Kisses | Made From Scratch Oh with Valentines Day only a few days away, could there be anything more wonderful than giving (or receiving) a delicious batch of homemade Red Velvet Kisses! Ben and I don’t really celebrate Valentines Day, but it’s still a lovely excuse to show your loved one how much they mean to you – plus who could resist a little baking! These oh so lovely kisses would look stunning wrapped up in a mason jar or box tied up with twine or even simply stacked in cute little ice cream bowl! Oh and be sure to keep an eye out on the blog and Facebook tomorrow, I have a the most exciting announcement ever!! x

Hello Paper

Hello Paper Oh goodness, is there anything more lovely than neutral gift wrapping, paper goods and oh so sweet kitchen utensils. The very lovely Audrey from Hello Paper has the sweetest online shop full of the most wonderful gift ideas – and of course gorgeous wrapping to make that gift oh so special! I’m a little in love with her ‘live simply’ stickers, they’re so gorgeous and would look so lovely in the corner of a window or on a vintage bottle! x

Christmas with Fete Oh, Happy Friday everyone from today it’s officially the summer holidays and Christmas is only a few exciting sleeps away! Is anyone else still franticly trying to organise everything for the holidays, I hope that this lovely collection of pretty pink Christmas ideas from the wonderfully talented Fete Press will help – is anyone else a little in love with the idea of a neutral Christmas with pops of bright pink?! I love how homemade and personal everything feels, and that by adding simple thoughtful detail (like oh so cute washi tape around cutlery and pompom place cards!!) can be all you need to help make your Christmas celebration that little more festive. x


I am so excited and honoured to welcome Little Ink as a brand new advertiser on Made From Scratch, I fell in love with Suzie’s keen eye for detail for selecting some of the most beautiful items for packaging, baking and entertaining quite a while ago, you can see the first post here. Since then she has added a lot of gorgeous new things to her online shop – be sure you scoot over and have a look I promise you will find something gorgeous for your next party or a gift for someone special! x



Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. Ours was full of parties, birthday celebrations for Ben, cake, puppy training and a little house decorating it was pretty full on but so much fun! Last week I had a huge clean up at home, I went through almost every cupboard and storage box and tidied things up, I find it to be very therapeautic but it also shows you what you have, what you don’t need and what you need a little more of… I think that everyone needs a few lovely things Tokketok to add to their stationery collection, they have some of the sweetest paper goods. What do you think? x
