Hi I’m Claire,

Welcome to Pillar Box Blue

This website is all about craft DIY and upcycling with a weekly tutorial.
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 my enthusiasm for all things crafty. Hopefully to inspire you or at least just enjoy looking at my posts.
I love the buzz of reusing, revamping things into something more beautiful. Many of my projects do have some sort of personal connection to me, whether it is in the materials used or inspiration from friends and family. I also like to inject a bit of humour into my craft, as I love to make people smile. I have hosted a craft club for many years.


Home at the moment is in Bedford England with my husband, 3 boys, and our dog Toby. I have a love of Asian culture due to a wonderfully colourful and exciting childhood growing up in Hong Kong. I also have gained a fondness for all things Scandi from soaking up my husband’s Norwegian culture.
