If you’ve found yourself doing more craft things during lockdown, you might be on the lookout for some new equipment. But why go for bog-standard when there are things like this available? These Miffy scissors might not be up to much hardcore cutting, but they’re great for simple paper and card tasks and darn it, they are cute.
I am a massive Studio Ghibli fan. Their films are fantastically animated, moving and just downright magical. Creator Hayao Miyazaki has a penchant for strong female leads: “…brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a saviour.” Here are a few favourite inspirational quotes:
- “Just follow your heart, and keep smiling” ~ Kiki’s Delivery Service
- “Always believe in yourself. Do this and no matter where you are, you will have nothing to fear” ~ The Cat Returns
- “You cannot alter your fate. However, you can rise to meet it” ~ Princess Mononoke
