A Decade Of Tom & Cat
It was our 10 year anniversary today, so Tom and I headed out on an adventure to Glasgow. We started off with a little bit of sale shopping, I tried on a couple of Vivienne Westwood dresses and bo...
Louise came through to visit today, as she's back home from Australia over the holidays and we went for mulled cider from a new cafe bar on Candlemaker Row. Lynsey joined us and we headed to Greyf...
Use protocols to help you work with someone and deligate work
Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you had a great day. My parents stayed over last night, so we woke up, opened our stockings and met under the Christmas tree for some serious gift unwrapping.
It's so horrible realising that someone's birthday is just around the corner when you don't have the slightest idea what to get them. It's even worse handing over a gift that you know you've not pu...

Brownie Badges
We're working on an exciting new project to bring badges to CO+K, so we had Jim come through and help us design them today. I can't wait to stitch all the ones I've earned on to my crafty tool belt.
That's Physics!
Today was the last ever pub quiz at the Merlin so Tom designed us some High School Powerpoint Time badges to remember it by. I'm sure we'll find a new quiz to win in the new year though.

CO+K Christmas Party
We never get to go along to office Christmas parties anymore as we work for ourselves, so we decided to host our own and invite along all of our friends. I've always dreamed of having a macaroon t...
Google Want To Interview Cut Out + Keep
We woke up to a super exciting email from Google this morning with the subject "Google want to interview Cut Out + Keep". We have a call with them on Tuesday to find out more but I'm so excited!
Bauble Wreath
It started to feel a lot like Christmas today when I covered the office in baubles to make my Nana a wreath. I love how it turned out. I think I might need to make a second one for us.

I was feeling a lot better today, so I woke up early and resumed my Christmas crafting, starting with paper chains for the tree.
Feeling Better
I started to feel a little better this evening, so we decided to leave the house and go for a late lunch at Piecebox. The cafe was covered in fairy lights and it felt so Christmassy as we ate our ...

Our second Secret Santa gift arrived from Poketo and it's wrapped so stylishly. Make sure to enter, if you want to win your own.
Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!
Mum and Dad took us to buy our Christmas Tree today in the woods of Kelty. We picked a nice big pine tree. Meanwhile, a small child was being put through the netting machine, which was so funny.
Foodies Festival Christmas
It's the 1st of December and Tom and I were excited to open the first windows on our advent calendars. We're such kids! Anova Books sent me a surprise parcel which turned out to be Agent Provocate...


Push-Button Light

Miss Cake
We got an exciting package in the mail from Miss Cake Art & Illustration this morning. I've always loved cut acrylic and this sign is going to look so good hanging in our office.
Who's that girl? It's... Cat!
We picked up a pretty frame from Ikea yesterday and decided to turn it in to a pin-board for all of our Polaroids, photo-strips and Instax snaps. I'm glad it worked so well as a pin-board as we ac...
