Katie has been sewing up a storm lately – her latest piece is this utterly gorgeous kitty print dress. So cute! I really want to learn how to sew my own clothes, so bloggers posting up recent makes is very motivational! :) Anyone got any super awesome resources for me to follow?

Amy has been back in the kitchen, and whipped up some chocolate and Malibu pancakes for pancake day this week. I’m imagining that these taste sort of like a Bounty?! Which, obviously, would be totally delicious in pancake form. (Or any form…)

Kate from minieco makes the best papercraft projects – they’re always bright and cheerful and not too hard to recreate at home :) I’m loving this “You’re a Gem” pop-up  card idea – Kate’s suggested using it for Mother’s Day but I might make some just to send to my friends! :)

Bee & Nick have been on an epic travel journey for the past 5 months (phew!) I adore their travel blog, Twenty Something Burnouts, and this post on Belize really caught my eye – it looks so beautiful! Definitely one to add to the travel list :)

Allie at Be Up & Doing has acquired some new studio space for her company, The Wonderjam (I’m digging the name!). I love seeing in progress DIYs, especially since we’re renovating! :)

Bright Bazaar is a new blog to me, but is quickly becoming a favourite – I love Will‘s sense of style and how well put together his blog is. This post on his favourite pieces from the Nordic Design Collective really stood out – loving that Helvetica print of course ;)

and a few choices from Hayley…
