Mister Bob Brian, a dark tribute to the great paper cutter himself, is just absolutely wonderful.

Giveaway! £100 Etsy gift card

1327-GiftCard-BlogBanner_seller-FA

It’s nearly Christmas, which means you should probably start trawling Etsy for all those handmade presents you’re going to buy (supporting indy designer-makers, especially at this time of year, is A Very Good Thing).

To help make it a little easier (and to celebrate the launch of Etsy gift cards), Etsy have given me a £100 vouchers to be given away on Make And Do With Perri. Hurrah!

So, this week just leave a comment below and I’ll randomly choose someone to give the gift card to. Why not tell me what you’d buy?

To celebrate the giveaway I’ve started this Pinterest board where I’m collecting all this prints on Etsy I’d buy if I had a spare £100.

Karen Nicol: words cannot describe how much I love her work

The textile artist is showing at the Rebecca Hossack gallery from 7-30 November.

Here’s what the site has to say: “Karen Nicol‘s new exhibition is a Singerie, the French word for ‘monkey trick.’ Singerie is a genre that was first found in the eighteenth dynasty of Egypt and made hugely popular in 18th Century French Rococo art, in which artists satirically depicted monkeys wearing fashionable dress.”

I’m heading to the private view tonight, and have interviewed her for Mollie Makes in the current issue
