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

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
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
Yay, Happy Friday everyone, I hope that you all have something fantastic planned for your weekend. Oh my, how gorgeous is this week’s weekly roundup by Toodles Noodles – I love it!

Like almost every lovely lady I know, I absolutely adore paper goods! There is something wonderful about having a beautiful collection to write your to do list on, give as a gift or write a sweet thank you note to someone special. The wonderfully talented crew at Follow Studio have some of the most stunning paper goods I’ve ever come across, everything is styled in perfect neutral tones and with the cleanest of lines – plus they have the most incredible wax seals and stamps! Be sure to have a look at their shop, I promise you wont leave empty handed. x
I am beyond honored and so excited to announce Little Dot as our lovely new advertiser. I fell head over heels in love with Little Dot way back when I first started blogging and even did a little post about them- I think that post was one of my very first ones. So it’s very very exciting to have them apart of Made From Scratch. If you haven’t heard of Little Dot, they do some of the sweetest little notebooks, tapes, purses, accessories and the handiest keyboard notepad ever! Be sure to have a look at their sweet shop, I promise you won’t leave empty handed. x
