Days 27-28 #MarchMeetTheMaker


Day 27  • R E C O M M E N D • A • M A K E R •

This was both extremely difficult and extremely fun! The list of makers I’d recommend is endless so for now I’ve chosen four of the most colourful❤💛💚💙💜🌈 – ones that I’ve recently discovered whose posts make me smile so much!

The Dolly Tub lives in a pink cottage and makes vintage flower tiles and goats milk soap. Her page is just magically beautiful and her life pops off the page! Her soaps are top of my next-to-buy list❤

Maryana Volkova makes the most darling dolls and I’m in love with her makes. The pink haired doll in vintage lace dress is my personal favourite. I’m afraid if I bought one I’d have to buy a whole collection 😂

‘The Happy Debbie’ I think is a sister from another mister! Her love of colour and vivid imagination just makes my heart sing. I fell in love with her incredible creation The Wild Nest Studio which is where I’d be hanging out every day, if I lived in Dallas. Rainbow land meets Alice in Wonderland meets a Berlin fleamarket – a magical, fantastical space/ experience that Dallas is super lucky to have ❤

The Paper Rose is a paper genius. She makes exquisite, hyper-realistic flowers out of coloured paper for a unique and remarkable anniversary gift. I love her work!

Day 28  • O R G A N I S E D •

*Nearly finished – in progress!* Not surprisingly I am not organised! This is about as organised as I get 😂 My head is cluttered with a chaos of creative ideas, rainbows and often dark thoughts so it’s sometimes a struggle to wade through all that and be organised. To-do lists help massively but time constraints don’t. I live and work out of my bedroom so space is definitely an issue. I’m a bit of a hoarder/ collector and until last week had shelves and shelves and shelves of CDs and DVDS. The contents are now residing in thin plastic sleeves in a couple of shoe boxes, the jewel cases and plastic boxes gone, and I have a shit tonne more space to play with!!🙆 This feels GOOD!! Now I am in the process of tidying all my bits and pieces and sorting out my receipts from the last 3 months. I am definitely trying to be more organised, but I do think chaos lives in my bones. After a tidy up, things literally only stay tidy for a matter of hours, if I’m lucky. As if by magic, I manufacture mess out of nothing!

The Story Behind the Art

vinyl record art

Probably the thing I love most about what I do is learning why someone bought a particular piece from me. The story behind the art. Chelsea Gurss, the lady who bought my beetroot vinyl, wrote to me and I just loved her story so much!beetroot new blog … “I am so excited to get this. It is for my husband’s birthday. He does this thing when a book has touched him in a certain way. He wants a piece of art work to remember the book. He just read Tom Robbin’s Jitterbug Perfume and beets get left on people’s doorsteps. So, I couldn’t think of a better beet piece of art then this. There was a lot of lame beet paintings out there. Thank you for making an awesome one”. ….. “We love our piece. It fits perfectly in our house. Thank you so much.”

And here it is, hanging on the wall in their home in Texas, USA!!
