We have recently got a few new items in from Cavallini. These stamps are a new mini size which are perfect for taking everywhere with you. I thought they would be good for people who are about to go traveling and want to keep a creative journal as they go. Cavallini have also finally brought out some lovely new paper tape designs, they still come packaged in a sweet little tin so after the tape has all gone you still have a cute vintage style tin to store keepsakes in.

I came across Elsa Mora via a brilliant book called Paper Cutting by Laura Heyenga, Rob Ryan and Natalie Avella. Its no secret that I truly love paper craft so I was excited to find another artist who uses paper in such a creative and beautiful way. You should have a look at Elsa’s website to view all of her amazing pieces.
We have just had a delivery of some new Mt Tapes in colourful prints and beautiful colours! Click here to view our full range.
I have become slightly obsessed with bird motifs and I think it is due to my need for Spring to arrive! I came across this first image via Pinterest and the picture eventually took me to here. The combination of birds and cross stitch made my head spin!
Below is another colourful and cute birdy Pinterest find. I think his/her colours are beautiful. Next up is a plate from Anthropologie. My grandma always had cockatiels growing up and now I am weirdly drawn to any imagery with them in, which is exemplified again in the image above. The final image came from photographer Luke Stephenson, it is part of a brilliant collection called The Incomplete Dictionary of Show Birds.
This post is dedicated to the almighty Season of Spring, please feel free to join us… now!

I have just come accross an illustrator based in Korea called Gobugi. I found it quite difficult to get much information on this artist due to the language barrier and Google translator failed on this occasion. I really liked the style of imagery and lovely colour palettes and thought it would be good to share!
Amazingly I have only just come accross the work of french artist Louis Icart. Incerdibley after World War II his work was almost forgotten about until the 1970′s when some of his first paintings were found in the attic of a Paris Art School. I love Art Deco style and the subtle colour palette in these paintings below but more importantly who does not love a miniature elephant!
