Laura is a creative creature who is a lover of deals and savvy money saving ideas! She is a firm believer in, ‘If the shops can make it then so can I’ and uses this as her inspiration for crafts and creations. Having spent 13 months carefully renovating and revitalizing a dilapidated cottage, she now spends her spare days working out how to create her own hand crafted home décor, gifts and beauty products on a shoestring budget. Away from all things crafts, Laura is a keen baker, experimenting in the kitchen with her latest culinary masterpiece. All images in Laura's posts unless otherwise stated copyright Laura Pickup.
