Christine Kim is an amazing paper artist from Toronto. Her installations are out-of-this-world awesome and her mixed media pieces are breathtaking. I loved reading about her inspirations too – it’s great to see the little (or big) things that play a part in the way art is created.

Ages ago I mentioned that I had begun using an A5 folder to keep track of all my blogging stuff. It keeps me so much more organised and helps me to channel all of my thoughts into one space. I’ve got editorial calendar printouts, sharing schedules and even a humble to-do list.
I thought that these might help to organise some of you guys so I’ve listed them on Etsy. Download them and give them a try. I’d love to know what you think.
**Please note: the printables are A5 size and are set to print on an A5 piece of paper. An A4 version is coming soon.**
I really don’t know how to describe the work of Amber Alexander. I love her subject clarity. I also love the way she works with colours; they bleed and blend so well creating work that is ethereal and eye catching. And that kitten in the bowtie! *swoon*

OK so I’m starting off small in my Etsy shop! I think that’s the best way to do things.
I’ve put up four very cute notepaper sets that will make you want to write letters super badly.
Sometimes life kicks you square in the stomach. Yeah, it hurts. It hurts a lot. You have to suck it up and move on. This post is about motivation inspiration. Do that thing you always wanted to do. Be the person you always wanted to be. You don’t get second chances in life. You are lucky to be given this one so Do.It.Now.

These beautiful vintage maritime art prints are so incredible. The details are amazing. I’m pretty gobsmacked by how awesome they are really.
What do you think?
It will come as no surprise that I’m a magazine addict. The more obscure the magazine the more I want it.
I tend to gravitate between fashion, literary and home mags. I find that glossies help me to come up with ideas when I’m writing ad copy because the ads in these magazines use few words. Fewer words means every single one is included for a reason. It’s cool to dissect the ads to see how they are crafted (perhaps that’s just a writer thing?).
Over the last few weeks I have been cataloguing my magazine collection into Evernote. I am in love with Evernote. If I have an idea for an article I can just search through my collection to see if anyone has written about it before. Genius stuff that will save me so much time!
I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite magazine covers from my current catalogue. Do you have a favourite magazine? Perhaps we can do a swap!
