Next up on the great crafting caper that is the Hoop-La blog tour, I’m very happy to welcome Emma Lamb.
BLOG: Emma Lamb
NOTES: Emma’s blog is the loveliest of treasure troves, filled with crochet, colour and beautifully styled photographs. From garlands and mobiles, to pincushions and pot-holders, her crocheted pieces are a wonderful mix of stylish modern and kitschy vintage, all in the most delicious of colour palettes. As well as sharing her own work, Emma also regularly features other artists and designers, seeking out fantastic finds and inspiring images from all corners of the internet. She has an amazing eye for design and a love of handmade which is truly infectious.
DON'T MISS: ….her Pinterest account! Along with plenty of crochet and design inspiration, it includes a dozen or so colour-themed boards with awesome names like ‘canary to mustard’ and ‘soot to pitch’.
THREE FAVOURITE POSTS:
- Shoptalk is a regular and fascinating glimpse into the day-to-day life of Emma’s business, i.e. a must-read for nosy girls who also like pretty stuff (ahem, me). Start with this one which demonstrates her incredible attention to even the smallest of details.
- If, like me, you’re intrigued by the idea of a photo-a-day challenge, the images here are a gorgeous and varied source of inspiration.
- I defy you not to spend hours swooning, pinning and generally marvelling over the deliciousness involved in Emma’s weekly Making Everyday Beautiful posts.
