Paper Tache Fun

Paper Tache Fun

I’m so excited about Made in Paper magazine… it’s full of fun ideas for parties and inspirational home décor. There are easy-to-follow projects such as a gold leaf bowl, paper straw wreath and much, much more. Rhiannon and I are currently planning my 30th birthday party (ahhhh 30!! cue mid-life crisis) and I can’t wait to make some paper moustaches, gorgeous garlands and pretty pom poms.

Made in Paper Magazine

Made in Paper is on sale now at £7.99 and available to buy from WHSmiths and all good newsagents.

For the love of Blog!

I’ve taken some time out from blogging recently. As well as juggling the day to day stuff, I felt that I needed to get my thoughts in order. Something that has helped me greatly was having a fun girls night, with Sam and Sarah, and starting a book of inspiration. A sketchbook of collages, made from an old Klimt book (I love his work), that contains things I have found inspiring from magazines, catalogues, fashion edits and much more. Below is a selection of pages from the first chapter. Collages and snippets from The White Stuff Catalogue, Mollie Makes, ASOS Catalogue, Company Magazine, Top Shop Catalogue, Glamour Magazine, In Style, Marie Clare and Cosmo.

Hope you find it inspiring to…
