The Design Cookbook

A little while ago, I was pleasantly surprised to be contacted by Kelly Edwards, who wanted to include two of my projects in her new publication, The Design Cookbook!

The Design Cookbook

My Hacked IKEA Drawers and Baking Canister Labels are both featured in this design guidebook which includes an array of inspirational DIY ‘recipes’.

It’s still always a big treat to see my projects on paper.


PS Just a little note to say I hope these ‘Press’ related posts don’t come across sounding too conceited. I generally publish them, not to brag or seek congratulations, though as a means of documenting the places my projects have been featured :-)

  3. Lisa Weber says:

    Congratulations! You should be very proud of these accomplishments. Way to go! I get soooo many compliments on my kitchen baking canisters with the awesome labels I got from you. You made ME look GOOD! So thanks again for that & thanks for inspiring me.

    • Thanks so much Lisa. I’m lovin’ that my labels have made their way into so many people’s kitchens, and that something as simple as a typographic decal can put smiles on faces!

    You deserve to brag; your work is awesome. I really like that you don’t feel the need to post every day but every post is so worthwhile. You are an inspiration.

    • Julie, that is so sweet of you. And you’re right, I certainly don’t feel the need to post daily…I’m lucky if I publish one post each fourteen days at the moment! Oh well, I’m working on it :-)

  7. Sandy says:

    • Thank you so much Sandy. I swear, my readers are just the bestest!!!!
