A bit about me and some of my favourite, inspirational makers.

I received a wonderful email from my friend Marta of Marta Walenda asking me to join a blog tour. The idea of the tour is that each author shares few things about themselves and about 3 other people whose creativity we find inspiring. Not only was I touched to find out that I have inspired Marta…… Continue reading A bit about me and some of my favourite, inspirational makers.

If there is…… Continue reading Potter’s translation of a long weekend…

May Madness
