About

I love making things with my own two hands. I also love reading about people making things online. So, why not start a blog that focuses on making and baking anything and everything that tickles my fancy? And so, in the interest of tickling other like-minded fancies everywhere, Makey Bakey was born! This is mainly a place to share my ideas, projects, recipes and my personal creative experiences related to art, crafts, food, cooking and baking.

I love to write and I've spent much of my time since I was a little girl either reading or writing, but due to my busy schedule these days I generally find myself writing practical things like recipes or to-do lists and grocery lists. When I`m not compiling practical lists, I enjoy writing long, self-indulgent lists about my interests and favourite things, and then I enjoy posting them on the internet (see below) because I like to think that people are curious about these sorts of things.
