Hello lovely people of the world!!
We are quickly approaching the most wonderful time of the year! It’s so amazing to me that within a matter of weeks it will be Christmas. I remember crossing into 2017 like it was yesterday.
In light of this I have designed my debut collection of Christmas themed cake toppers available for pre-order from now until November 30th, 2017. The toppers will be despatched within the first 3 weeks of December and there’s also a discount available for orders of a dozen or more.
View the catalogue here
Place your orders here
Remember the deadline for all pre-orders is November 30th, 2017.
I look forward to working with you.
Hello and welcome to July!
We’re seven months into the year and I must admit I almost didn’t get this done at all! If you follow me on social media i.e facebook, instagram or twitter, you’d have seen my post about a private commission which I completed over the weekend. I will be putting up a blog post on that soon. Anyway, that commission took up more time and energy than I had anticipated and coupled with a few other personal obligations in my private life I was really tempted to post getting this July project done. But the show must go on and I’m glad I decided to stick to my guns and force this post out by hook or by crook! Continue reading
Welcome to the new month of March. Can’t believe it’s March already, how time flies. I hope 2015 has been good to you so far and I also hope that the rest of the year shall be truly awesome for everyone.
So on to today’s order of business, this month’s quote is
Start each day with a grateful heart
I’ve been trying hard to put this into practice ever since I decided this would be the quote for March, every morning as I open my eyes I try and say a little thank you prayer. I know it can sometimes be hard to find something to grateful for especially when you feel life isn’t being fair or you’re stressed out. Life can be really hard and it’s easy to get depressed, bitter or even angry about it but I choose to believe that the fact that we are still here, with blood flowing through our veins, means that life isn’t through with us yet and there’s still something left within us that the world is waiting to experience. Isn’t that one good enough reason to be grateful?
Today’s post is just me having a little fun with paper. If you’ve seen the movie Guardians of the Galaxy then I don’t need to explain who Groot it. But for those of you who haven’t, I highly recommend you go rent, borrow or buy it. It’s a sci-fi movie set in space with an unlikely group of 5 beings coming together to save the galaxy from evil. It’s such a fun & funny movie and I loved every moment. Continue reading
HELLO & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Hope you had a fabulous New Year’s Eve celebration and now ready to face 2015 and everything it has to offer.
As New Year’s traditions go I’m sure quite a few of you have made resolutions or have goals you would like to achieve this year. Yes? No? Did you make any last year? And how many of your targets did you hit or miss? I know I definitely missed my targets with regards to this blog. If blogs could talk I bet mine would give me a good earful about how neglected it must have felt in 2014.
So this year I’ve devised a plan of action to keep me productive on this blog. I actually didn’t have a set plan last year so I’m hoping that since I’ve thought this through it will work out (how well will it work out? I guess I’ll find out in the implementation) . So part of my plan is to create a calendar of motivational quotes. I’m not a big fan of calendars, which could be why I was not that organised last year, so I’m hoping to kill like 3 birds with this stone….talk about ambitious right.
Hello beautiful people!
Today’s post is a bit different from my regular offering, I’m sharing with you my little adventure to Christ the Light of Hope Orphanage (CLOHO) in Akute, Ogun State, Nigeria. Here, I taught a craft class to over 20 children, from age 2 upwards, on how to make smiley faces and butterflies. It was a bit out of my comfort zone but was totally worth the experience.
I’m finally back after a long absence, been a very eventful time away for me. Aside from my 9 to 5 morphing into a speed train that’s trying drive everyone crazy, I also suffered a personal loss of a dear friend which destabilised me for while. But I guess it’s the circle of life, we all have our appointed time here on earth, the only thing is for us to use what little time we’ve been given to the best of our ability. Live your life everyday in the manner in which you would like to be remembered.
Some good news though, if you have liked the Thoughts Paper Scissors page on facebook you’d already have seen my post but in case you haven’t heard, my design for the Panasonic Cut Out the Darkness paper lantern project made it into the final top 100 designs selected for mass production. Many thanks to everyone who voted and if you’re interested in taking part they’re taking new entries for a second competition because it was so popular. Here’s the link http://cotd.panasonic.net/ and you can see my design called ‘Abstract’ on the list of winners.
Now to the order of business, today’s post showcases centerpieces I created for a friend’s wedding a while back. The bride requested I create 3D paper centerpieces of landmarks from countries around the world of places she’s been and would like to visit. She wanted them done in silver and/or bronze. I ended up using silver paper and card with copper foil on some of the designs. I created 18 landmarks in total. Continue reading
