No Culture Icons

I'm constantly amazed at how when I post pictures on Instagram from my little apartment in Indy, it travels the globe and can be seen from other makers and creatives all over the world. So when Zara Hedderman of No Culture Icons approached me about having a little feature on the Leeds-based website, I jumped at the chance. The website is dedicated to sourcing and sharing creative goodness through online features and exhibitions. They chronicle so many amazing artists from photographers and illustrators, to houseware designers and brooch makers.

To read the feature you can visit the site here. You can also find No Culture Icons on Instagram @nocultureicons.


Embroidery Cakes: A collab with Alana Jones-Mann


I've always thought my designs were cute enough to eat, but this is just next-level.

The lovely stylist and designer, Alana Jones-Mann, has used a couple different Threadhoney embroidery hoop designs as inspiration for her latest tutorial on her blog. Click here to see the post!

 I'm such a huge fan of the beautiful work that Alana does with with customized desserts and you can see her passion come through with everything that she bakes. Plus, I love that in her tutorials she explains things so well that even someone who is as disaster-prone in the kitchen as I am can feel pretty confident when reading the directions!

Thank you again Alana for bringing these hoops to life, they perfectly bring out the stitching and painting techniques that I used when making the embroidery pieces. To see more of Alana's work, visit her website at and follow her on Instagram @alanajonesmann for some serious eye candy.

Now if you need me, I'll be salivating over these sweet treats:
