Watching True Detective has made me feel quite wary of dream catchers and basically anything made out of a mixture of twigs and twine. (But do watch it, we are completely addicted. Matthew McConaughey is now well and truly the king of all actors). Yet these materials are some of my favourites, always on hand… Continue reading luu studios.
Laura Blythman is the ultimate kindergarten kid, and I absolutely adore it. She perfectly reflects my love of cutting and pasting and all things paper. One day, when money is never a fear, maybe I will just scrapbook my life away and collect even more ever-increasing piles of patterned paper and magazine cut-outs.

I love the way Anne Ten Donkelaar integrates pressed flowers with… Continue reading constructing with flowers.
