As seen on: Folding Trees

Folding Trees is one of my all-time favorite blogs, and although I'm not a big fan of quilling, Yulia Brodskaya's work caught my eye. Her work has been featured on quite a few design blogs in the past few weeks, and I love it!

Etsy Find: PaperAffection

I'm always looking for fun paper-based objects (among other things) on Etsy, and I came across PaperAffection's wonderful paper ornaments! Though the holiday season is over, these would look great in any home at any time of the year! I especially like the recycled paper ones...

While looking for interesting things to post about, I stumbled upon the work of collage artist Peter Clark... I absolutely LOVE his work!!!
In his own words:
"Peter uses a comprehensive collection of found paper as his palette which are coloured, patterned or textured by their printed, written or worn surfaces, with this media he 'paints' his collages. He shades with density of print and creates substance and movement with lines plucked from old maps or manuscripts. His pieces use mark-making in an innovative and humorous way to create a collection of beasts and clothing which exude character and wit."

More of his work can be seen at:

New Year, new resolutions

Happy new year!!!

With a new year comes new goals, and mine this year is to post here more regularly. A LOT more regularly.

Starting next week, my goal is to post daily about anything paper or design related, with certain days dedicated to the following "columns":
-Etsy-Tuesdays: my favorite finds on Etsy
-Blog-Thursdays: my favourite finds from other blogs

The last post on Fridays will be a round-up of the posts from the week.

So now we just have to see if I can keep up with it....
