Emma Lamb - {photograph by Sussie Bell for the book 'Craft, Show & Sell' by Torie Jayne}
Hello and welcome to my blog!

I'm Emma Lamb, a British girl living in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, Scotland. As well as a blogger I am a textile designer, crocheter and online shop owner who also likes to pretend that she is a photographer and stylist, at least I do within the safety of this blog and my own shop.

My most favourite things in life are my Man, my English Cocker spaniel called Spanner, my parents, dark chocolate, long walks, stony beaches, fresh mint tea, yarn, blue skies, red wine, my studio, great films, pouring over the shelves of vintage shops and noticing the wee details in the world around me. All of these are my inspiration.

You can find out more about me and my creative work in my Etsy Featured Seller interview, from April 2012, and my UK Handmade interview in the Winter 2011 edition (p.58) of their quarterly magazine.


This blog is a place for me to share my creations and inspirations alongside all the wonderful finds and talented creators I discover within our creative community. Regular themes include:

+ making everyday beautiful - weekly favourites from the Flickr group
+ shop talk - regular updates about my own handmade business
+ studio details - an occasional peek into my studio and the things that inspire me
+ colour stories - a series of guest posts where I invite talented people from our creative community to tell us what colour means to them
+ today i'm loving - inspiration from some of my favourite design brands
+ good reads - books and magazines I love
+ etsy favourites - gorgeous finds from the aisles of Etsy
+ art, design + illustration / designer makers - highlighting some of my favourite artists and designer makers from our creative community
+ colour palette - exploring my own and found colour inspiration
