Inspired by Caryn's 30th

I love getting requests for new orders and was ready for the challenge of making Caryn's 30th Birthday signing book. She wanted the colours of black and pink and loves butterflies so I had a lot of fun making this book for all her birthday guests to sign. I really liked the final product and would love to make another one. I think if I get time, I will make a couple for weddings and birthdays and sell them at a market in the future. Thanks Caryn for the order and the inspiration!

Inspired by new frames....

I have really tried to find time to come up with some new frame designs over recent weeks. This fairy one was really popular and was quickly snapped up for a Easter gift for Areti. I am loving the purples in this one and hope to make a few more with these papers.
I do my best to meet all my customers needs. At a recent market, little Angeline couldnt decide between the pony and the butterfly frame so I was happy to do a combination of them both!

Another special request was for a blue and green animal frame for Aidan. This was a fun one to make and I like the colour combination. I look forward to making some more of these ones as I am happy with the final product.

Inspired by an engagament...

I am really lucky to have many friends who support my passion for paper. Recently I had a colleague at work get engaged. (Congratulations Shana!!). She asked me to make her some thankyou cards and I was happy to make the below cards. The bird seems to be a common theme in my work (I used it for my wedding invites too) but I just love it!

Inspired by the people of Seddon...

We were lucky to have a lovely day last month at the first Maribyrnong Makers Market for 2011. The rain held off and it was great to have a lot of old customers stop by to say hello. I was also very happy to sell the 100th Inspired by Paper frame. I thought I was going to get there before Christmas but I am happy that Julie was the 100th frame customer with her Eva frame. Julie was visiting from Queensland and was so excited when I told her she did not have to pay for the frame. You will see her in the range of photos below!
