I'm a web developer and designer living in the Burren in beautiful Co Clare. I have have a passion for all things 'design' - patterns, pictures, decor, paintings... and take that into my passion for baking - if you're going to bake a cake - make it a cool cake to look at! I'm starting my blog with a blank canvas and plan to spill thoughts, mumblings, rants and share things I know - my favourite recipes, reviews, ideas... I hope you like it and I hope you come back.
