Button Book – first attempt

A while back I did a post on ‘things with buttons’ and featured this teeny little button book: So cute! And such a great idea. I’ve been wanting to make my own for quite some time now and I finally got round to it. The idea I had for it is taken from something I’ve […]

Customised stationery set

When my friend Helen won the letter writing competition I recently ran, I assumed that she’d commission me to do robots on her prize of a customised letter and envelope set. However, when I asked what she’d like, she said she’d need some time to think about it. After a few days she got back […]

National Stationery Week! 22nd – 28th April, 2013

While National Stationery Week is a mere 7 days away, I am glad I’ve found out about it at least a little in advance. As it says on their site, ‘National Stationery Week is a celebration of the written word and all things stationery.’ ¬†And just to be clear, that’s stationery with an ‘e’, NOT […]

It’s a 21st Century Bestiary. “Ranging from the depths of the ocean to the most arid corners of the earth, Caspar Henderson captures the beauty and bizarreness of the many living forms we thought we knew and some we could never have contemplated, and invites us to better imagine […]
