paper vintage vase



I can't tell you just how much I enjoy  the process of creating something completely new from paper,  experimenting, tweaking, decorating, seeing it come to life, I especially enjoyed designing this cute little vase, you see I have quite a collection of real ceramic mid century vases and the idea that I can make my own is very exciting, I can see a whole series coming on!

Flowers glorious Flowers!











and now for something completely different!
Flowers beautiful, fabulous, flowers!
One of the delights of having a sister who owns a flower shop is the endless photographic material!
What fun zooming into these miracles of mother nature!

Seven Stories Christmas exhibition




You can imagine just how thrilled and delighted I was recently when Templar Publishing emailed me to tell me that Seven Stories  The Centre for Children's Books have decided to create an exhibition featuring life size models of my latest Christmas Paper Craft Book!
The only thing I am disappointed about is that I can't go as it's in Newcastle Upon Tyne in England, it runs till the 4th of January, so if your in the area, do pop in and let me know all about it!
I will hopefully receive some more photos to show you soon!

"The Ministry of Flowers" flower shop












As you already know if you've been following me recently, my sister has been working very, very hard on her dream project, to open a flower shop in her now amazingly renovated garage in our little village Eastbourne here in Wellington, New Zealand. Many many hours have gone into painting, fixing, creating and festooning.
She has named it "The Ministry of Flowers" apart from a mind bogglingly beautiful array of flowers, she is also selling locally crafted gift items such as handmade wooden pens, little tussie-mussie pottery vases, hand made cards and more.
I'm so proud of her!
If you live in our area, please come along for a visit!
