This week we welcome Kirsty Macafee of Kootoyoo to the Guest Blog!  Kirsty is one of our all time favourite bloggers, and it is madness that this is the first time she has Guest Blogged with us!  Kirsty's blog is full of clever craft and beautiful images, Lucy and I especially love her weekly Collections posts. This week Kirsty has created a series of Tabletop Portraits of creative people she loves online. Some are close friends, others are people she greatly admires, some of them you probably know too, and all of them have fantastic online spaces. We start with everyone's favourite, Aunty Cookie. - Jenny x

picked shaz up on twitter
& made a firm friend
she's a maker of plans
& sticks to them too
loves herself a bit of text
& includes it a lot
makes screen printed fabric
& is old-school with bulk cutting
takes photos of feet
& loves a wooden brooch
(she's a blogger after all)
is the owner of the smallest ever pincushion
& uses it too
draws a lot
& sells her "shizz" online
is prepared for every situation
& carries a pharmacy everywhere
loves a knit & cross stitch
& makes patterns from both
complains a lot about parenting
& is really all talk
tracks square with a handy man
& is one of the acest people on the net
