Okay, I've been ploughing through the Nieves site and can't resist sharing some more spreads from the books they have on offer. I am ridiculously inspired right now. The most recent books I have made (not so recent) have all been in a similar, simple format and I love it! I have two so far and would like to make a whole pile of them. I have been a bit busy lately however, so I haven't been able to make much work, and this is why:

I haven't mentioned it yet, for fear of jinxing it (I'm not superstitious usually) but I have just bought a flat! A beautiful flat in the London commuter belt. It's great because I have always wanted to live in the countryside and this way I get the best of both worlds. We move in tomorrow so it's going to be a busy weekend. When I have it all sorted out I'll post some pictures.

Have a nice weekend everyone!

Paper:Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut

Wow! Look at this amazing book available from the Black Dog Publishing website.

Paper: Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut shines a light on the beautiful world of paper art, fashion and design. From the traditional art of origami and paper cutting through to contemporary experiments in conceptual paper installations and modular folding, Paper celebrates one of the world’s oldest and most widely used materials in all its visual glory, providing an analogue remedy to the digital world.


I just stumbled over Beauchamping's Etsy Shop and I'm completely in love with it. I like Homestead the best - it's no secret I'm a bit of a homebody. I also stumbled over this little gem from Roll and Tumble Press. Shall I buy it?
