New Site Design


Site 2

Hey dreamers, check out my website to keep up to date with my work. The site is still a work in progress but I'm quite happy with it… at the moment that is! Being someone who designs for a living, I change things around at the drop of a hat so don't be surprised if things look a little different by the time to log onto the site. I am, however, really loving the simple & clean look. Drop me a line & let me know what you think!

Fly Away With Me print by Hanna Melin. Sweet & simple with a painterly feel, just the way I like it.

About Time...

Why, hello there! I decided it's time I shake off the cobwebs from this little ol' blog of mine. Trust me, dear neglected readers (are you still there?), you have never been far from my thoughts. After all, this blog launched my business & was what set me on this wonderful, colourful path that I am on. I have met so many of you readers in the years that I've been blogging & it never fails to thrill me that there are actually people who like what I like & who read what I have to say! In all honesty, I don't think I would be where I am today without you. So, for that, let me say a heartfelt…

Grateful for your continued support

Thank you for your support through all these years & through my many changes in so many different directions. Heck, I'm a fickle-minded Gemini through & through so expect quite a few more changes to come! But trust me, this blog will never be far from my thoughts :)

It hasn't been easy, these last couple of months. I've had to question what do I REALLY, REALLY want in life & hard as it is to pin it down (hello Gemini!) I'm comfortable with the answer. I'm going to take the next step in making my long-held dream a reality. I'm keeping it to myself for now, but I think making this incredibly vague declaration is going to help me kind of cast it out to the universe & hopefully, things fall into place. I am, after all, a huge believer that the universe gives you exactly what you need, when you need it. Don't get me wrong, you can't just sit around waiting for things to happen but you have to work on it with integrity & faith. 

Thank you, over & over again. Xoxo

Happy Fasting!

Last month started out pretty slow but soon picked up to break neck speed & I have yet to properly rest since mid June. Don't get me wrong, I love my job with every fibre of my being but boy, am I looking forward to finally winding down a few projects & to start some new ones soon!

We Muslims are about to start a month of fasting which represents a time for self-reflection & cleansing. It's also a time for my favorite Pasar Ramadhan! So here's wishing all fellow Muslims salam ramadhan al-mubarak & happy fasting!

Paper To Petal


This book marries my love for crafting & flowers, and I can not wait to get my hands on it! It will be released in August & you can preorder it on Amazon (which is what I just did). I'm seriously drooling over these pictures....

Abigail Brown

I've blogged about Abigail Brown a couple of times (here & here) & I'll keep on blogging till the whole world knows about her amazing handmade birds. I hope someday I will be able to purchase a peacock for myself (£500 pounds! Sob sob)

DIY: Piñata


Looking for a slightly adult version of a piñata? Well, how about DIYing this flower filled piñata? I think it's a marvellous idea & I hope one of my clients will let me do this one day!

Home Sweet Home: Gu Qi & Mobai


This Beijing home of furniture designer Gu Qi & his graphic designer girlfriend Mobai is the epitome of cool in my books. The use of wood & the abundant light & airiness of the space is my dream come true.

Real Beauty


This commercial by Dove really hits a nerve for women everywhere. If you're a woman & haven't already seen this, please do & if you're a guy, please show this to the women in your life.

Dove's description of the commercial: "Women are their own beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. At Dove, we are committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. So, we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see."

Remember ladies, you are more beautiful than you think!

P/S: Once you've wiped away those tears welling up in your eyes, check out the men's version of the commercial. Hilarious!
