Dear Edible Crafts readers,

It’s with a very heavy heart that I tell you all I’m leaving my post as Edible Crafts editor. I’ve written over 6,000 posts in almost five years. This blog is a part of my every day, ingrained in me so much it alters how I view the world. I’m always hunting, looking, searching for fun food, not just on the computer but everywhere around me. I’ve seen so many food trends come and go, come and stay, and witnessed great changes in how we search for inspiration and ideas.

I thought I would be here forever, but alas, I just can’t juggle different blogs, my real life and most of all, parenting two young children. (So um, blame the new baby. I do all the time.) Not if I want to give this blog the attention it deserves, and you the attention you deserve. As I frantically search for posts while a baby cries and my poor kid whines about being neglected, I risk missing the best in what is clever and creative out there on your blogs and in my own home, so I know it’s best to hand over the reins to a fresh, new, eager fun food hunter.

My deepest thanks to the blog owners and my friends, Shellie and Vikram, for giving me this amazing opportunity to work and live in the world of Edible Crafts. I’m forever grateful.

I hope you will continue to visit all the new and wonderful things to come on Edible Crafts! And I hope you’ll stop by and visit me, too, over at TheDecoratedCookie. Please keep in touch!

I love and will miss you, Edible Crafts.

All the best,


By Meaghan Mountford

    Hi Rachel,

    Just a clarification – Meaghan is leaving us, but this blog stays on. :)

    We will be running this blog and continue to find new edible craft ideas.

    We are very sad to see Meaghan go. She has done a wonderful job and we completely understand her wanting to leave. She will be missed heaps.

    Vikram & Shellie
