meet.make.scarf accents.


After coming across this post... I knew I had to add some coloured stripes to a plain scarf. I have always had a weak spot for stripes!

Life is better with friends.

The three of us are currently held up in a coffee shop chatting away and enjoying a Saturday afternoon together. Planning some fun group nights, ideas for upcoming blog posts, and ladies nights in! 

It is a lot of fun creating this blog together, and sometimes we just need to take a step back and appreciate that:

Enjoy your weekend!

meet.make.nutella bites.


With less then a month until Valentines day, Pinterest has exploded with Valentines DIYs and recipes. Around here (at least for Steph and Cindy), Valentines Day is most often a day spent with girlfriends. Both of the chef husbands are at work as it the busiest day of the year for them! 

In honour of these girly Valentines get togethers, we thought we would go into the meet.make.laugh. vault and re-share one of our favourite sweet treats, Nutella bites! These are perfect for any Valentines celebration, whether you are spending it with your loved one, friends, or even as a treat to take to work for the office.

meet.make.battle of the scones.

We both have more of a savoury/salty-tooth so baking isn't part of our normal regime but for some reason scones caught out interest this week. Stephanie came across a recipe on Joy The Baker that triggered the idea and coincidentally, Cindy's co-worker shared a scone recipe that would appeal to our salty palette.

So then it became... the battle of the scones!

meet.make.mulled wine.

Well the holidays are officially over. I can still pretend right? One of my favourite things during the holiday season is making mulled wine. It brings back memories of gluhwein at German Christmas markets. As you can see below... I have a few clay glasses saved from Christmas markets past which I am always excited to pull out.

meet.make.crochet fingerless gloves.


Victoria weather can often be pretty rainy in the winter, but it doesn't get overly cold. Full-fledged mitts are not really needed, and let's face it, it is such a hassle to take off a mitt to send a text message. 

I have been seeing fingerless gloves around a lot lately, and decided I wanted to attempt a pair myself. I came across this pattern for Warm Willies Fingerless Gloves by Susan Hinton on Ravelry, and started crocheting away.

meet.make.cross-stitch elbow patches.


Last weekend was a rainy, dreary, Sunday afternoon. A typical Victorian winter day... Hayley was out of town, and we wanted a lazy craft that would be easy to accomplish while watching a movie.

meet.make.crochet-a-long: Slouchy Hat



We had so much fun last month making our granny square pillows, that we decided to link up with The Curious Pug for her December Crochet-along!

meet.make.Happy New Years.


Guess what? It's 2013! Woah! 2012 was a great start to meet.make.laugh., but we are excited for more fun in 2013. What do you want to see us post? More crafts? More recipes? More cocktails? Something brand new? We like suggestions! 

'Tis the season of new year resolutions, so here are a few simple ones of ours!
