Hi, I’m Claire,
Welcome to Pillar Box Blue
This website is all about craft and upcycling with a weekly tutorial. I’m an award-winning blogger who has been crafting and upcycling for over 30 years. As well as the blog, I have written extensively for craft and upcycling magazines.
My home is full of the homemade! Some of it is a bit quirky and eclectic but unique, as I’ve created it myself. I want to share with you my enthusiasm for all things crafty. Hopefully to inspire you or at least enjoy looking at my posts.
I love the buzz of reusing and revamping things into something more beautiful. Many of my projects have some personal connection to me, whether in the materials used or inspiration from friends and family. I also like to inject humour into my craft, as I love to make people smile. I have hosted a craft club for many years.
My home is in Bedford, England, with my husband, three boys, and our dog Toby. I love Asian culture due to my colourful and exciting childhood and early adulthood in Hong Kong. There is also a hint of Scandi love in my crafts, from soaking up my husband’s Norwegian culture.
