Good morning Insta friends. I haven't shown you an Irish Beach in a while so here is a view from yesterday morning.  Right now I'm doing the mommy dash to school and I look flipping awesome if anyone asks. (Thankfully no one can see past my boots coat and hat)  How about you? Are you rockin your own fashion style this morning? And if anyone asks yes I might be trying to bring back grunge jeans and cords because they were COMFY!!! #beachstagram # ireland_gram #discoverireland

Notebook |#yarnlovechallenge  As the sun begins to set here at the cottage it's time to catch up with all of my Insta friends. The light is just magical but it is quickly receding so I'll get right on with it.   Please pop over to the podcast and have a listen to @knitsonik. Felicity joined me for a chat on location in @thisisknit for her workshops in Dublin.  She chats about her latest book and how her journey from college to present day has shaped her career in sound and textiles. Believe…

"There is a direct correlation between the time that I started getting help in the business and the addition of many new colourways."   On the blog today is a wonderful interview with @edencottageyarns. Victoria shares her inspiration for her new Milburn range I make her choose between her yarn to tell us her favourite and why and Victoria also shares what platform has helped her business grow.   All of this with some gorgeous signature Eden Cottage yarn images to boot. Why are you still…

It's a quiet image from me today. I don't know about ye but my days never seem to go to plan no matter how many #bulletjournal or planners are here.   How do you manage your time? Especially when unforeseen circumstances like to raise their head a few times a month.   Are you an online planner or a journal planner? Filofax or Lecehtturm? What has worked for you and what has caused you to say "I'll never use that again"?   This image is quiet because it is what I need from today. A few…

Love comes in many different forms. Some have strong family connections some have found that friends are their source of endless joy but do we ever love as freely or as passionately as when we are children?  When is it that we become guarded and less trusting?   I look at my kids in fleeting moments like this one and I almost envy what they have.  The adore frustrate annoy love each other but they do everything together fearless and hungry for the experiences that life will bring…

Now some may say it's funny to post a picture of ice on Valentines but rest assured it's not a metaphor. It's unusual to see ice on the beach here so I had to try and share it with all of you.   Nature's beauty is a wonderful thing.  Morning Insta Friends!! #gloomandglow

Negative Space Challenge by @prettycreativestyle & @vinylhome | Challenges on Instagram always breathe fresh life into my grid. This is my try at using #styled_negativespace to open up a flat lay. I hope you like it.   .  This is also my #yarnlovechallenge day 13 Publication. I will be honest and say that I don't read a lot of magazines but since Laine has popped on the shelves I've found a new love for creative magazines. The world is a very different place now than eight years ago and I've…

Have you had snow?   This morning we awoke to snow at the beach. In Ireland that is a little unusual so I had to run down and play with my camera.   The morning light was just breaking peaceful with nothing but the sound of the waves and far off seagulls.  The tide had gone out leaving snow-covered seaweed to thaw in the weak winter sun. A last hurrah for Winter's icy touch.   It felt like the promise of a good week to come. I hope this week is kind to you all.   Pop up to my stories for…

#WHPwithlove | Heart-shaped strawberries chocolate natural beauty of roses hand-dyed yarn and a handknitted sweater  these are the things that I love but they mean nothing without having someone else to share their beauty with.   I have been lucky with family friends and now my online family. Each of you sharing parts of me that I love and cherish. Yes I love my kids and that's a given but if I didn't receive the support this year from all of you I' not sure where I would be today. So the…

Today has been a bit of a dark day so it has been filled with everything that I love coffee yarn and creative play. #coffeeandseasons  Over on the blog you will find my thoughts on struggling with time management and being a parent of young toddlers. I know right now that this point in my life is the one where I am going to look back longingly later in life and I want to live it to the fullest with my kids but how do you do that and work as a parent?  .

It's been a little while since I showed you my beach and there is nothing more beautiful then being there on quiet mornings. . I'm writing a personal blog post at the moment and it got me wondering how many of you still read personal posts or personal blogs? .  This was yesterday morning. This morning everyone in this house is now sick so we will be hunkering down under blankets.

Hello Insta friends!   It finally snowed and I got outside but it's all mushy ice instead of dreamlike flakes. We made 1 tiny snow Angel and  well the other toddler ran all over it in excitement.   So here is my image today it's a @malabrigoyarn Rasta cowl in Teal Feather because you can knit one of these beauties in an evening when the weather tries to catch you off guard.   Ssshazaam giant needles to the rescue!   Has it snowed where you are?   (i didn't cut the plant or Instagram. I found…

#yarnlovechallenge | Style  Do you like this image?   If you follow me you know I lie somewhere between beach chic and a world of make-believe. Mostly I try to be creative on Instagram while still enjoying knitting and writing.  Believable but you never quite know what you are going to get. (yip the algorithm loves me) It really sums me up as a person as my interests are flighty.  I have deep passionate love affairs with things like knitting and writing but then fleeting dalliances with…
